Common Injuries for Pregnant Women Involved in Car Accidents

When involved in a car accident, pregnant women are at risk for all of the common car accident injuries. These include concussions, whiplash, neck and back injuries, herniated discs, broken bones, seatbelt injuries, airbag injuries and more.

Because pregnant women are in a vulnerable state of health, they may be at risk for additional injuries directly related to the pregnancy. Some of these injuries may also harm or kill the unborn baby. These injuries include:

  1. Maternal Shock: During maternal shock, the body naturally attempts to save the life of the mother by neglecting the life of the fetus. Maternal shock has an 80% mortality rate for the fetus.
  2. Placental Abruption: Placental abruption occurs in many instances where the mother experiences trauma. In this instance, the placenta separates from the wall of the uterus. The maternal mortality rate is low, but the fetal mortality rate is unfortunately high.
  3. Maternal Death: Some injuries may cause the mother to die, in which case it is unlikely the fetus will survive.
  4. Uterine Rupture: While rare, a uterine rupture, or tear in the uterus, may occur if the mother hits the steering column or other hard surface. It is almost always fatal for the fetus.

Some symptoms of injury to the unborn child include abdominal pain, excessive or painful urination, fever or chills, bleeding or nausea and vomiting. If you are pregnant and experiencing any of these symptoms, or something feels abnormal following a car accident, please seek emergency medical treatment immediately. Emergency medical services and emergency room physicians will take appropriate action to help treat injury to a mother or her child, and will ensure that all possible injuries are ruled out.

Pregnant women are at a great risk for injury or loss of their child if they are involved in a car accident. The impact of a car accident can be severe and have a long-term impact on the physical and emotional health of the mother, especially if the baby is lost.

Driving While Pregnant

Women putting seatbelt If you are expecting a child, you can take precautionary measures to keep yourself and your child safe while in a car:

  1. Pregnant women should ALWAYS wear a seatbelt, even if it is uncomfortable;
  2. Pregnant women should wear the seatbelt low, over their hips, rather than across their belly; and
  3. Pregnant women should be aware of emotional and physical fatigue that may increase their risk of accidents.

If you are injured in a car accident while pregnant, follow these steps:

  1. Call 911 and tell the operator that you are pregnant;
  2. Make any emergency services personnel aware of your condition and of any symptoms you are experiencing;
  3. Seek Emergency Room treatment so that a medical professional can evaluate your condition and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment for you and your unborn child; and
  4. Advocate for the health of yourself and your baby above all else.

If you were in a car accident while pregnant, and that accident was the result of someone else’s negligence behind the wheel, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and emergency room costs, cost of ongoing medical treatment, lost wages due to missed work and pain and suffering.
