Car accidents are always frightening, but perhaps never more so than when you are pregnant.  Then it is not just your injury you have to worry about, but also the potential injury to your unborn child whom you cannot see.

As an expectant mother, you know that everything that you do affects your child.  As Atlanta car accident lawyers, we want you to understand what to do if you are in a car accident while pregnant so that you can protect your child.

Get Medical Treatment Quickly

If you are not expecting a child, then you may have some time to assess your injuries and decide what type of medical treatment you need.  However, if you are pregnant then there is no time to waste.  The trauma and stress of the accident may have harmed your child, regardless of whether you are physically injured.  Thus, we recommend that all pregnant women seek medical attention as soon as possible after an accident.  Make sure to tell the first responders, paramedics and doctors that you are pregnant so that they can take the appropriate steps to protect your baby.
