Maybe: If she was in a rear facing seat,properly strapped in, she may have no injury.However, it never hurts to have her doc look her over.

Had car accident 3/29/13. Fender bender. Not hurt but very startled. Had miscarriage 4/2/13 at 6w3d. Could car accident have caused miscarriage?

....: Scientific research evaluating the association between miscarriage & trauma has predominantly been conducted in trauma centers, meaning the accidents are more than a "fender bender". There other more common & certain causes for 1st trimester spontaneous abortion. Without more info, its in the realm of possibility.
