I am pregnant and I got into a car accident in Michigan.


There is nothing more terrifying than being involved in a car collision in Michigan while you are pregnant and expecting a baby. With that, as much as it may be unthinkable, here at Haque Legal we decided to look at the unthinkable to better prepare you for what you need to do in case you get into a car accident while you are carrying a baby. 

Let us revisit some facts.

What do you need to do first?

If you have not yet called 911, do that. No matter how okay you feel, you need to stay still and make sure that you do not make any sudden movements until an emergency response team is already there to help you and guide you through the process. It is a terrifying thought to think about but the best thing that you can do is to stay still and wait for the experts or trained individuals to come and get you.

Once you have called 911 and your partner, you should instruct your partner to call your lawyer. While we know that the main focus that you have at the moment would be the life of your unborn child, you need to think of the best possible way that you can file for the benefits and the compensation that you and your child should get once you survive the accident.

What if I was injured in a car accident while pregnant?

If you were injured in a car accident while pregnant, you may sue the driver at fault just like any other person who got into an accident. In the State of Michigan, the no-fault law only requires that you show that you suffered an injury because of the accident and that the injuries have resulted in medical expenses and lost wages. You will get paid, whether you are pregnant or not.

On the other hand, you are still entitled to the recovery of your pain and suffering compensation. Through Michigan’s Auto No-fault law, as long as there is a showing that you suffered from an injury and that the injuries you have caused you to have excess medical expenses and lost wages, you are entitled to compensation.
