Being involved in any motor vehicle accident is frightening, but being pregnant and involved in a car crash can be even more distressing.
Car accidents pose unique threats to pregnant women that may not be present for other drivers and passengers.
As a result, if you are pregnant and involved in a motor vehicle accident, you should immediately seek medical care from your OB/GYN or regular physician, no matter how minor the accident may have been or whether you feel that you have been injured or not. You also may need to get specialized treatment to accommodate the fact that you are pregnant.
Some of the potential pregnancy complications that result from a motor vehicle accident can include pre-term labor, miscarriage, bleeding, and birth defects.
An accident also may cause an otherwise normal pregnancy to transition to a high-risk pregnancy. This could cause problems for both mother and child both before, during, and after birth.
Aside from the physical complications that can result from a motor vehicle crash, an expectant mother can suffer from emotional duress and stress that can have a negative effect on her pregnancy and unborn child.
If you are pregnant and involved in a motor vehicle accident, there are some warning signs that make it necessary for you to seek emergency medical attention. These signs include the following:

We live in Friendship, Wisconsin, and Boller & Vaughan came to our doorstep to discuss our mother’s wrongful death claim on a Saturday morning. Not only were we pleased with the large recovery, we were so thankful to have lawyers who were willing to explain to us every twist and turn along the way. It is great to know there is a law firm that will fight for the rights of elderly people all over Wisconsin.
Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan were incredible in working on my case and my daughter’s case. I was out of work and in the hospital with a new baby. Mr. Boller and Ms. Vaughan protected our rights and it was a pleasure to work with them. I hope never to be in another motor vehicle accident, however, if I am and I am injured, I will contact Boller & Vaughan immediately.
I was referred to Michelle through a friend. I have never had a better experience. It took a little over a year to get my settlement but the staff there stayed in constant contact and kept me in the loop. Oh, and Michelle actually got me MORE money than we discussed. I will refer anyone to this firm. Words cannot do justice the thanks that I have for Michelle and her staff (Mary especially) thank you guys so much!
After my husband died as a result of a motor vehicle accident, Boller & Vaughan spent countless hours talking with me, meeting with me in person, and making sure that I was okay. The drunk driver who hit us did not have any insurance, and we had to make a claim through our own insurance. Boller & Vaughan was fantastic at explaining the law to me and the handling of our claims.
After my son was injured in a daycare setting, Ms. Vaughan took the time to thoroughly investigate our case and my son’s injuries. Michele was approachable and had answers to our questions. Talking with her helped to relieve many of our anxieties.
