Is It Safe to Drive While I’m Pregnant?
As an experienced local personal injury attorney, I’ve seen the tragic results of failing to buckle up. As a reminder, car crashes are the leading cause of death for pregnant women and their fetuses. Having said that, there are ways to make driving safer when pregnant-wear a 3-point seat belt and keep the air bags activated. In tests with “pregnant” crash test dummies, unrestrained drivers sustained substantially greater abdominal and head trauma compared to fully restrained drivers. If you are in a crash, call a doctor right away, even if you feel fine immediately after the wreck.
