CAR ACCIDENT WHILE PREGNANT – CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Pam Rochlin has been voted a Minnesota Super Lawyer for many years. As a woman and mother, she is especially attuned to women’s issues. One issue that unfortunately continues to come up is where a pregnant woman is injured in a car accident. We have seen a number of different outcomes in these cases. The pregnant woman is, of course, always most concerned for the baby. In most of the cases, the baby is fine. Unfortunately, that is not the situation in all cases.
In several cases, our lawyers represented a woman who went into premature labor after a car accident. Sometimes, the labor can be stopped, but then then woman ends up on bedrest. She will miss time from work, and be unnecessarily scared because of the incident. However, there have also been cases where the car accident resulted in premature delivery. This may not be the worst possible result, but it is still unfortunate. There are many risks with premature delivery. In addition, the baby often has to be isolated, and the mother is limited in the contact she can have with her new baby.
Of course, the worst possible outcome is a fatal car accident. Sometimes the baby will survive while the mother is killed. However, there may also be cases where the mom loses the baby because of the crash. That seems to be more likely early in the pregnancy.
