Being in a car accident is a traumatic event for anyone. However, for an expectant mother, a car accident can be a tragic event for her and her unborn child. The mother not only worries about her health, but the health and well-being of her child. Sadly, many things can go wrong for a pregnant woman after a car accident.
After being in a Livermore car crash caused by another driver, you may assume that the driver’s insurance company will pay your medical bills, vehicle repairs, lost income, and other damages. Shouldn’t the company just pay your damages because the other driver is at fault? The police officer said he was at fault and he even said he was sorry at the accident scene. However, the other driver nor the police officer has any control over whether the insurance company pays, denies, or undervalues a car accident claim.
Severe burns can be sustained in a car accident because of several causes. The vehicle can catch on fire during impact or after the collision. Chemical burns can result from chemicals spilling from the vehicle or other vehicles or releasing from airbags. Friction burns or abrasions are common in motorcycle accidents and when victims are thrown from a vehicle.
Regardless of how you suffered the burn, a burn can increase your pain and suffering, both physical suffering and emotional pain. Accident victims who suffer from burns in a car accident often have permanent scars or disfigurement. In some cases, the injuries can result in a disability.

The damages can be quite substantial.
