Need a personal injury lawyer in Bargoed to assist with your non-fault accident claim?
Although suffering an injury at any time of your life can be worrying, expectant mothers are often very concerned about the effect any injury may have on their baby or its development. Whilst pregnant women aren’t necessarily more at risk of suffering an injury, the later stages of pregnancy can make it difficult for a woman to carry out their everyday tasks and they may feel the need to adapt their lifestyle in order to reduce the risk of suffering an injury.
However, sometimes accidents and injuries are unpredictable and even pregnant women can fall victim to unexpected harm. Whilst a simple slip or trip may not normally cause too much damage, this type of accident can have serious consequences for a pregnant women so it’s important to obtain medical help, even if your injuries appear to be relatively minor.
If you’ve suffered a slip or fall and you’re pregnant, you may want to visit your local hospital to be checked over. Although you might not normally attend hospital for this type of incident, unless you’d suffered obvious injuries, you may prefer to have medical professionals ensure that the baby is unharmed and that you don’t require any additional treatment.
Whilst you can’t make a claim for every type of accident or injury, if someone or something else is responsible for the incident, you could make a claim for compensation, whether you’re pregnant or not. If, for example, you’re out shopping and staff had left wires out in the aisle, causing you to trip, they could be responsible for any injuries you sustain as a result. Similarly, if you fall because of an unmarked wet floor, the shop owners could be liable for the injuries you’ve experienced.

In addition to helping you to make a claim, a personal injury lawyer in Bargoed could help to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation available.
