Pre-term birth has been linked to car accidents involving pregnant women. Also prevalent with such accidents are increased chances of high-risk birth, internal bleeding, vaginal bleeding, placenta detachment, and severe pain in the abdominal/pelvic region. It doesn’t matter if it was not a major accident or an accident involving a total loss of the vehicle, smaller accidents may also cause such traumatic consequences to pregnant women.
The actions taken directly after the accident are important to ensuring the safety and well-being of both mother and unborn child. The mother should seek immediate medical attention. If you or someone you know is in a similar situation, seek treatment from a qualified doctor immediately. A competent doctor will ensure appropriate medical treatment.
It is important for the treating physician to document the causation between the impact and the resulting consequences to both mother and baby. Often, the impact causes placenta detachment and PROM (premature rupture of membranes), internal and vaginal bleeding, and pre-term birth.
Remember, if you or anyone you know has been involved in an auto accident, know your rights! Steps to take:
1) Call the police and get a police report filed! Wait for the police to arrive.
2) Get the name, phone number, license plate number, driver’s license number, and insurance information from the other driver. You can take a picture of their driver’s license and insurance.
3) Take pictures of all the vehicles at the scene of the accident.
4) Get medical treatment for any injuries. Most injuries surface the day after the accident with soreness, pain, foggy mind, etc.
