Car Accident-Related Complications You Can Sue For
Car accident-related complications can be minor or major. Injuries that can be caused due to car accidents and that you can include in your claim are:
- Placental Abruption: The condition in which the placenta gets detached from the uterus. The fetus gets in danger and immediate medication is required.
- Maternal Shock: Hypovolemic shock in which a large volume of blood flow occurs. The chances of the fetus surviving become trivial.
- Uterine Rupture: The most dangerous pregnancy complication in which the uterus gets ruptured. The baby starts losing oxygen and death occurs occasionally.
- Direct Fetal Trauma: The condition of physical injury to the baby. If it is a head injury, then the fetus could die.
- Birth Defects: Even if your baby and you have not experienced any complications, your baby can later be born with birth defects. These may be related to the car accident.
- High-Risk Pregnancy: A car accident can turn a typical pregnancy into a high-risk experience that requires additional medical intervention.

What Can a Pregnant Woman Be Compensated for After a Car Accident?
Losses that a pregnant woman can demand compensation for after a car accident include:
- Hospitalization: Even if the injury is minor, a doctor could keep you in the hospital for further observation. If the injuries are major, you could be asked to stay in the hospital until you give birth, leading to additional expenses.
- Check-ups: After an accident, a pregnant woman might require ongoing check-ups to check for further complications.
- Monitoring services: If you are not in the hospital, then the doctor may provide monitoring services and equipment to monitor your and your child’s health.
- Lost income: You can sue for the income you lost while you were out of work and recovering.
- Costs of a caretaker: If your accident leads to you being on bed rest, you may need a caretaker to help take care of your family.
- Health issues: Some issues you can include in your claim as a result of the accident include obstetric and non-obstetric issues, pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
An attorney can help you file for compensation for these damages and more. While some damages have a set compensation value (“economic damages”), others do not (“non-economic damages”). An experienced lawyer can help you determine what you are owed and seek compensation for both.
Filing a Lawsuit
If you don’t file a lawsuit soon after the accident, then the most important evidence can get lost. A lawyer will help you in the following ways:
- Deciding on compensation based on your medical report
- Holding the liable party accountable
- Negotiating with the insurance company
It is always best to reach out to a lawyer as soon as possible to help you fight for maximum damages.
