Traffic accidents and the risk of miscarriage

On Behalf of | Jul 11, 2019 | Motor Vehicle Accidents

There are many ways in which a motor vehicle collision may shatter someone’s life, whether they break a bone or suffer from financial consequences resulting from the crash. However, auto accidents are especially concerning for those who are pregnant. Sadly, many pregnant women have passed away in traffic accidents, and some have also had a miscarriage as a result of the collision. If you recently suffered a miscarriage because of an accident, or your partner had a miscarriage that you believe was brought on by an accident, you may be dealing with unimaginable pain.

Every car crash is different, but some are especially severe. For example, when someone is hit by a drunk driver who is traveling at high speeds, the likelihood of a victim sustaining an injury (or having a miscarriage, if they are pregnant) is especially high. However, it is important to point out that even minor car accidents can result in miscarriage and many other hardships for those involved. Moreover, car accidents of any type can lead to high levels of stress and other challenges that can be very difficult for someone when they are pregnant.

If you have had a miscarriage due to a negligent driver, it is pivotal for you to focus on your emotional and physical recovery. You may never be able to recover from the emotional pain of a miscarriage, but you may be able to access financial resources by taking legal action, which could make it easier for you to move forward from the accident.
