I was in a car accident in Long Beach. The accident happened a few days ago and I am worried because Im five months pregnant. Could the crash have harmed my baby?

It is important that you seek medical attention from your OBGYN immediately.  While there is a good chance that your unborn child is perfectly fine, it is not a risk you should take.  Your doctor will be able to conduct an examination to confirm that everything is okay.

If the Long Beach auto accident was caused by the other driver, you could be entitled to compensation.  Before talking with the insurance company or signing any papers, you should consult with an experienced Southern California car accident attorney.  Trying to settle with the insurance company on your own is not an easy task and you could end up receiving less than if you had been represented by a lawyer.
