Does Being Pregnant Affect Personal Injury Claims?

Does Being Pregnant Affect Personal Injury Claims?

Being involved in a car accident is a terrifying experience – especially while pregnant. If you were injured in a car accident caused by another negligent driver while you were pregnant, you might be wondering if you will receive additional compensation for the risk they put you and your child in. Our Texas car accident attorneys explain how being pregnant can impact your personal injury claim and compensation.

How a Car Accident Can Impact a Pregnant Mother

Studies conducted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that between one to three percent of babies are exposed to trauma in utero during a car accident. The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health discovered that seven percent of pregnancies are complicated because of trauma. These studies show how a car crash can significantly impact and complicate a woman’s pregnancy – even if the child was not severely impacted during the crash.

Studies also show that car accidents can increase the risk of:

  • Low birthweight

  • Fetal distress

  • Preterm birth

  • Stillbirth

  • And more
