Pregnant and In a Car Accident? There’s no time to lose.

By Alpert Schreyer on January 19, 2016

pregnant car accidentWhat to do if you’re in a car accident while pregnant

If you’re in a car accident, whether it’s “just” a fender-bender or a larger multi-car wreck, injuries can happen. Sometimes you may not immediately feel the effects of the accident, but internal injuries may have occurred.

This can be magnified greatly if you are in an accident while you are pregnant.

Last weekend on Interstate 95 in New Rochelle, New York, a pregnant woman was injured in a collision involving three cars. The incident happened near Exit 16 in New Rochelle and three lanes of the four-lane highway were blocked for almost two hours starting at 10:43am while all three vehicles were towed.

Following the accident, the woman was treated for internal pains and injuries to her arm. Fortunately, the woman’s injuries are not considered life threatening to either her or her baby.

If you find yourself involved in a car accident while pregnant, even if you feel okay, head straight to an emergency room or call your health care provider. Internal injuries that can jeopardize your baby’s life can occur with any sudden impact, including slamming on the brakes…even if the resulting jolt seems only minor. Always remember to wear your seatbelt properly fastened during pregnancy, as the death of the mother is the leading cause of fetal death in car accidents.

The distress caused in these kinds of situations is both physical and emotional and can take a tremendous toll on your life…and that distress can be compounded if the accident was not your fault. If you’re not a fault in the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
