If I’m pregnant, how do I keep myself safe during a Columbia, MD car crash?

No one wants to get into a Columbia, MD car crash, but particularly not a pregnant woman. Not only can you injure yourself during the crash, but the baby could become injured, as well. But you can increase your chances of keeping the baby safe by following a few safety measures.

Wear Your Seat Belt

A seat belt is your biggest defense against becoming injured in a Maryland car accident. However, you must wear it properly to get adequate protection. The lap portion of the belt should sit as low on your abdomen as possible, even spreading across your thighs, if needed. The shoulder band should hit across your collarbone, sitting directly over your chest. Wearing your seat belt in this way is the best way you can keep safe during a crash.

You may not be able to prevent getting into a Columbia, MD car crash, but you may be able to prevent serious injuries. If you happen to get into an accident, you should have a Howard County car crash lawyer on your side.
