What kind of Health Issues can Arrise from a Car Accident if I’m Pregnant?

Protecting the health of yourself and your unborn child are the most important actions you should take immediately following any vehicular accident. If you’re injured immediately go to the hospital or speak with your doctor regarding any care that should be given and see to the health of your unborn child. Car accidents can lead to many health problems both for the mother and the child. Here are a few of the health issues that may arise from a car accident while pregnant:

  • Fetal Trauma. Car accidents are the leading cause of death for unborn children. The amount of force involved in a wreck can severely damage the unborn child and cause birth defects that they may carry for the rest of their life.
  • Placental Abruption. Placental Abruption is when the placenta either partially or completely separates from this uterus before the birth of the child.
  • Premature Birth. The force of the wreck could cause you to go into an early labor and deliver the child before their due date. This could lead to other health complications that arise from a premature birth.
  • Brain Damage to the Child. Even after a birth, a child’s skull is still not fully formed. While in the womb, they are protected by amniotic fluid, but they can still receive brain damage when a large amount of force causes their head to collide with your body or internal organs.
  • Hemorrhaging. Unborn children are not fully formed. Any amount of trauma or force applied to their bodies while they are in the womb can lead to health defects, which include hemorrhaging.
  • Miscarriage. In some cases, the trauma to the child might be too severe, this can cause a miscarriage. Car accidents are the leading cause of miscarriage in the United States.

If your child has suffered because of any of the above health reasons, or another, and you need qualified legal expertise on how to move forward, the Pregnancy Injury Lawyers of Dixon Law are ready to help.

Pregnancy Injury and Dealing with Insurance – Dixon Law

When an injury happens while your pregnant, it can be hard to get all of the medical care that you need. You can’t have x-rays or an MRI scan because the scans could affect the health of your unborn child. Because of this, medical care may need to be moved till after you give birth. The Insurance company will try to use this against you. They’ll say that because you didn’t get the care that you needed at that exact moment, that they can deny you coverage now. This, is obviously a heinous underhanded tactic because if you were to undergo an MRI or an X-ray scan it could have affected the health of your unborn child. Our Pregnancy Injury Lawyers have successfully fought the cases before, and we can help you deal with these terrible tactics.
