Unfortunately, although Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies vet their drivers, accidents remain common. Unfortunately, many riders are distracted from the road and cannot brace themselves for the impact that occurs during a collision. The resulting injuries can be severe.
Dr. Barbara Dominguez and the rest of the staff at Dominguez Chiropractic are ready to help you. Your Jonesboro Uber and Lyft rideshare accident chiropractor will be familiar with the types of injuries that can result from these collisions and can help to craft a treatment plan that meets your specific needs. We can also discuss your situation in either English or Spanish.
Typical Injuries that Result From Uber or Lyft Accidents
Riding in an Uber or Lyft is not without risk. These drivers must keep their attention on the road and be sure to follow the local traffic laws. A lack of attention endangers both riders within these vehicles and other people on the road. Even so, accidents remain common. The resulting injuries can not only require emergency medical treatment but could also affect your health for the foreseeable future.
A chiropractor from our team specializes in treating conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system after these accidents. Common examples that may result from rideshare accidents include:
- Separated joints
- Sprains or strains of ligaments in the back or neck
- Slipped disks
- Spinal misalignment
- General neck or back pain from whiplash
- Loss of range of motion in joints
Even if an emergency room can provide an X-ray or MRI, it may require weeks or months of treatment for a person to return to optimal health. Chiropractors can provide unique treatment options that aim to return your range of motion, eliminate pain, and allow you to get your life back on track.
Working to Provide Personalized Treatment Plans
While there is a set of common injuries after Uber or Lyft accidents, every person’s experience is unique. This is why every person who calls Dominguez Chiropractic for an appointment will meet with an MD during their first visit. This helps to provide immediate relief and develop a treatment plan for the coming weeks or months.
This treatment can take on many forms. For some people, occasional realignments and massage are all that is required. However, more intensive therapy in the form of ultrasounds, targeted exercise, and rehabilitation may also be necessary. Ultimately, your Jonesboro Uber and Lyft rideshare accident chiropractor’s goal will be to help you get as healthy as possible.
Seeking Chiropractic Care as Part of a Claim for Compensation
Dominguez Chiropractic understands that seeking medical care after an Uber or Lyft rideshare accident can raise many important questions. Who will pay for the treatment is usually top of mind for many victims.
The essential thing to remember is that we never require an accident report or a letter from an attorney to begin treatment. As long as we know that your injuries resulted from a car accident, we can get to work immediately. This makes us your Jonesboro One-Stop Auto Accident Injury Center.
At the same time, we can help connect your injuries to the fact that you were in a car accident. This can include sending bills to the relevant insurance companies or attorney’s offices.
Your Chiropractic Care Might Help You Reach Full Health in Time to Sue
Seeking care quickly after a rideshare accident is very important. OCGA §9-3-33 places a two-year time limit on demanding compensation from other drivers after an accident. At the same time, the sooner you seek medical care after an accident, the better your chances for a complete recovery.
