Ride-Share Accident

Chiropractic Care after a Ride-Share Accident in Savannah, Georgia 

Uber and Lyft services are quite popular in Savannah, GA.

The amount of people using Ride-Share services has been steadily on the rise throughout the country, which is why it's not surprising that accidents involving Uber and Lyft have also been on the rise.

Car Accidents, in general, can cause quite an upheaval in one's life. Having to deal with medical treatment and damages alone can be overwhelming. 

Uber and Lyft Accidents are like any Car Accident in regards to taking the right steps afterward to ensure that your injuries are treated correctly and that your legal rights are protected. 

5 Steps to Take after a Ride-Share Accident in Savannah, Georgia 

After being involved in a Ride-Share Accident in Savannah, GA, it's essential to follow the steps below to protect yourself and your legal rights. 

Call the Police: It's always important to contact the police after an accident occurs. Even if you were just a passenger at the time of the crash, you will need police documentation stating who was at fault for the accident so you know which insurance company to go after for any medical expense reimbursement that you may be entitled to. 

Speak to Witnesses: If there were any witnesses to the accident, find out if they will provide a written statement regarding what they saw. Ask for their name and contact information just encase you need them to recount what they saw at a later date. 

Take Photos of the Accident Scene: It's always a good idea to have pictures of the accident scene such as the weather conditions, the damages of all the vehicles involved and any visible injuries. It's unfortunate, but it's not uncommon for the other driver or their insurance company to try and diminish the extent of the damages that occurred. 

Seek Medical Attention: Probably the most important step to take after an accident is seeking proper medical care. Making sure your injuries are diagnosed and treated correctly is going to be your best chance at making a full an optimal recovery. 

Hire an Attorney for Legal Help: If you were involved in an Uber or Lyft Accident that wasn't your fault, it's going to be very important to hire an experienced attorney for legal help. Your lawyer will make sure you do not get taken advantage of by the insurance company, and they will help you get the financial compensation that you're owed. 

Why Medical Care is so Important after a Ride Share Accident 

Medical Care after being involved in an Uber or Lyft Accident is crucial for two main reasons. 

#1. You May Not know the Extent of your Injuries: Some car accident injuries do not present symptoms immediately after the accident. This will often lead people to falsely assume that they were not injured at all. 

Whiplash is one of the most common car accident injuries, but it is also one of the most common injuries to present delayed symptoms. In some cases, it can take hours or days before symptoms begin to show. 

When people do begin to feel symptoms of whiplash, it is not always associated with the accident, or people believe they are just feeling some soreness and they will be fine in a few days. 

When either of these assumptions are made, it can lead to an even bigger delay in treatment. Which leads us to our next problem. 

#2. Delayed Treatment can Lead to Prolonged Recover and Insurance Reimbursement Issues: When treatment is delayed too long after an accident, it can lead to prolonged treatment that would not have been necessary had the patient been diagnosed and treated early. Delayed treatment will more often than not, lead to insurance reimbursement issues. 

The insurance company, whether it's yours, the at-fault drivers, or Uber or Lyft Insurance, will not be on your side. 

As soon as they see that it took you X amount of time to be seen by a medical professional after the accident, they will either: 

a. say that you were not injured in the accident or

b. say that you were not injured very bad because you waited too long to seek treatment. 

In either case, you may not be able to receive full compensation for your medical expenses because it may be very difficult for you to prove otherwise.

Why Chiropractic Care May Be Right for You 

We talked a lot about seeking medical attention after an Uber or Lyft Accident so you may be wondering whom you should see to help diagnose and treat your injuries. 

Chiropractic Doctors are highly trained when it comes to diagnosing and treating problems with the musculoskeletal system, and the chiropractors at Arrowhead Clinic in Savannah, GA have many years of experience doing just that. 

Chiropractors perform spinal manipulations or better known as chiropractic adjustments to help restore any restricted movement in the joints or tissues.

Restoring proper mobility to the joints will help to alleviate pain and soreness and allow the body to heal naturally without the need for surgery. 

Many injuries that occur during a car accident, such as whiplash, back, or neck injuries will often heal much faster with chiropractic treatment. 

Chiropractors treat the injury at the source, and will never offer patients something that is only going to mask the pain for a short time, such as prescription pain medications.

It is a chiropractors belief that healing should take place by treating the root cause, not the symptom.
