USA- Finance.yahoo.com writes that everyone faces a high risk of being in accidents. Car accidents, in particular, are extremely common, but workplace accidents are also frequent occurrences that can severely injure individuals. The risk of such incidents, and the dangers of severe injuries from these accidents, are both heightened for pregnant women.
In cases where pregnant women are injured, it is important to find an experienced personal injury attorney with whom the victim can discuss the claim. In some cases, the injuries may be more severe due to the pregnancy, and in many cases, the treatment will be more costly. The time required to recover from an injury could also be higher for pregnant women leading to additional costs.
Sadly, sometimes the injuries result in damage to the unborn baby or miscarriages. In accidents that impact a pregnant woman during the early part of a pregnancy, miscarriages are possible. When a crash caused injury to the pregnant victim’s midsection, she should seek medical advice immediately to ensure that the fetus was not harmed.
Later in a pregnancy, an injured woman may still experience a miscarriage, but other severe consequences that could seriously harm the mother can occur as well. Placental abruption and hemorrhages are possible, and in some cases, stillbirths and early deliveries may result from an injury.
Pregnant women should remember that it is important for them to always wear a seatbelt in a car. The belt should stay below the belly, not over or on the midsection. While seatbelts may feel uncomfortable while pregnant, they are vital for the protection of bot the mom and the baby.
