3 Things to Do If You're Pregnant & Involved in a Car Crash: Advice From a Personal Injury Attorney, Dothan, Alabama

Pregnant women who have been involved in car crashes face additional threats to their health and well-being. It's important for expecting mothers to understand the proper steps to take after a crash. Personal injury attorney Rafael Gil III of The Gil Law Firm has been serving the Dothan, Alabama, area since 2000; below, he shares three things to do if you're pregnant and involved in a car crash.

1. Call 911 or Visit Your Doctor

personal injuryA crash can cause a range of medical issues for expectant mothers, including early labor, birth complications, and even miscarriage. If your crash is major, call 911 and get to a hospital right away. If your crash is more of a fender-bender and no visible injuries were sustained (be especially mindful of any abdominal or vaginal pain), it's still crucial to be checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.

2. Exchange Insurance Information

Exchange insurance information with any other drivers involved in the crash. This ensures the details of your accident are stated to your insurer and the incident is promptly reported. These actions are central to your protection should a legal case develop.

3. Obtain a Copy of the Police Statement

The police statement will detail the events surrounding the crash and the nature of any injuries suffered. If you're able, get the name of the officer completing the report and request a copy for yourself. The statement might also list information relating to any accident witnesses who could be essential in a legal claim.
