No one wants to become involved in an accident, particularly someone who is pregnant.
Women who are expecting face a variety of special dangers both to themselves and to their unborn children if they are involved in Ormond Beach car crashes. Although you likely know you should seek medical attention as soon as possible, other actions are essential as well.
- Alert Your Personal Doctor. If you are involved in an accident, you will likely visit an emergency room for your treatment. Although the hospital should contact your doctor, it’s not always guaranteed. Contact your obstetrician or midwife yourself to alert her of your accident. Doing so will keep her informed of your situation and can put her on alert for the potential problems that could arise as a result of the crash.
- Monitor Yourself. Unfortunately, you may not feel the full effects of the crash until a few days after the incident. This means you’ll have to keep an eye out for any symptoms of problems, including decreased baby movement, bleeding, cramping, leaking, and pain. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, call your doctor immediately.
- Contact Your Lawyer. You may incur thousands of dollars in medical bills because of the crash, especially if there was serious injury to you or your baby. Unless you have the help of an attorney, you may well end up paying for these bills yourself. Don’t be victimized twice: call your lawyer and talk to him about your situation. He can tell you if you have a case.
