Pregnancy Injuries From A Car Accident
Pregnancy injuries from a car accident can range from minor injuries to miscarriage. If you are pregnant and are in a car accident, certainly you need to visit the doctor to be examined. If you experience pregnancy injuries from a car accident and the accident was not your fault, you deserve to receive compensation for your damages.
Medical Treatment Changes If You are Pregnant
When an individual is in a car accident, a trip to the emergency room may be enough to determine the extent of injuries. This is true especially if the doctor orders x-rays or an MRI. When you are pregnant and in a car accident, you will need an extensive battery of tests run to determine if the unborn child has been injured. As your medical bills and injuries increase, generally the value of your claim increases. A personal injury lawyer can make a critical difference in guaranteeing that you are treated fairly when negotiating a settlement with an insurance company.
Types Of Injuries To Unborn Children
Pregnancy injuries from a car accident may manifest themselves in several ways. At the very least, an auto accident while pregnant firmly places your pregnancy in the high-risk category. This may necessitate additional monitoring by doctors, or ongoing tests to confirm the health of your child as they develop in the womb.
Numerous clients we have represented have experienced premature birth because of a car accident while pregnant. While premature birth itself is a complication resulting from a car accident, a premature birth often leads to birth defects or a newborn failing to develop properly. This increases the risk for disability as a result of the accident. Often a personal injury case or claim will need to remain open until the damages can be confirmed and quantified for the purpose of valuing the claim. Your personal injury lawyer can explain how to protect your rights.
Fetal death or Miscarriage is unfortunately caused primarily by car accidents. This can be caused by a physical impact on the mother. Additionally, if the mother loses oxygen for an extended period, the unborn child can be the victim of fetal death.
