Gwinnett County collision causes pregnant mother to lose baby

On Behalf of | Mar 11, 2019 | Car accidents

A question that often accompanies personal injury lawsuits filed in Rome may be how much those bringing such action are entitled to collect. There may not be an easy answer to that question due to every injury case being unique. Typically, accident victims may be able to recover the cost of their medical expenses. Those injured in a car accident may also be awarded damages to help pay for any repairs that need to be performed on their vehicle (or to pay for an entirely new car). Then there is the matter of compensating for pain and suffering, which can differ from case to case. 

One can only assume the anguish that an expectant mother is now going through after losing her unborn baby in the aftermath of a collision in Gwinnett County. Doctors confirmed to her that she had lost the child while treating her for her own injuries. Authorities say that her car struck the side of a minivan that was trying to make a left turn at an intersection. The occupants of the minivan were also injured in the accident, although their injuries were reported to be non-life-threatening. Authorities are still trying to determine which driver is responsible for causing the accident. While they say that alcohol was not believed to have factored into the collision, they have not ruled the possibility of bringing criminal charges against one of the parties involved. 

In car accident cases involving expectant mothers, compensation for wrongful death might also be a possibility (depending on how far along a woman was in her pregnancy). Whatever the extent of compensation may be, those needing it may have a better chance of earning it by enlisting the services of an experienced personal injury attorney.
