What is a placental abruption?
During pregnancy, the placenta is attached to the inner walls of the uterus until the baby is healthy and strong enough to be born. A placental abruption is when the placenta separates prematurely. While there are many potential causes, the impact of a Sarasota auto accident can trigger this dangerous complication.
What are the possible complications of a Florida placental abruption?
Low birth weight

Death of the fetus
What are the symptoms of a placental abruption?

After a Florida car wreck, it is essential that a pregnant victim seek immediate medical treatment. This is true regardless of how minor the accident or how good the mother may feel immediately after. A physician will conduct a proper evaluation to determine whether there is risk of placental abruption.
