I recently settled a Lincoln, Rhode Island car accident case for a pregnant woman, with the case settling as she was in labor! Here is what happened:
What Happens If I Am Injured In A Car Accident While Pregnant?
Our client was driving on route 146 in Lincoln when she was rear-ended by a careless driver. Our client was 21 weeks pregnant at the time of the car accident.
The most important task after a car accident involving a pregnant woman is to immediately ensure the fetus is healthy and unharmed.
In this case, the good folks at Women and Infant Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island did a superb job and the fetus was fine.
In the meantime, our client was suffering from injuries to her neck, back and shoulders.
She actually worked for a large physical therapy office in the state and was able to get treatment, just as in any other situation.
So that if you suffer personal injuries in a car accident while pregnant, you have the same legal rights to pursue a claim as if you were not pregnant. In addition, medical bills relating to the care of your unborn baby may also be recovered.
Loving On Our Clients – All The Way Thru Car Accident Settlement (And Birth)!
Our client continued to treat, and we continued to do our investigations and negotiations with the insurance companies. I personally handled the case from start to finish along with our awesome paralegal Samantha.
Ironically, as I was calling to tell our client we had her case settled, our client took the call while she was in labor in the hospital! To make it easy, when the settlement check arrived, our intern Samantha visited to hand it out and see the baby girl!
