An auto accident can be traumatic, but when you add the complication of being pregnant and being involved in a car accident, the stakes are much higher, and the injuries, more serious. In fact, if you’ve been in an accident while pregnant, the first thing you should do is see a doctor for a trauma assessment check which will use imaging to check on the health of the child and if there are any complications such as placental abruption, which can lead to the premature birth of the baby, and the death of the mother due to excessive blood loss. Pregnant women are more likely to suffer health complications after a car accident, nor matter how small because their bodies may be more sensitive to the environment, and the signs may not be initially apparent. If you or someone you know were the victim of a car accident while pregnant, you have every right to file a lawsuit to recover money damages as well as seek justice and closure after this harrowing event.

Consequences of an Auto Accident on an Unborn Child
Even when you feel OK as a pregnant woman after a car accident, it is vital that you see your OBGYN. This is because any trauma to the fetus can lead to developmental issues and even cerebral palsy later in life due to issues such as hypoxia, asphyxia, the development of kernicterus or excessive bile in the child’s body in response to the auto accident, and so on.
