Miscarriage after RTA

Miscarriage of a pregnancy following a road traffic accident

Success story

Pat was involved in a road traffic accident and miscarried 6 weeks later. PMS was asked to comment on whether the RTA caused the miscarriage. PMS noted that given that the miscarriage occurred 6 weeks after the accident, there did not seem to be either correlation or causation. Furthermore, at the time of the accident, the fetus was only at 8 days gestation - too small to be disturbed by the accident. The case was dropped.
