Rideshare apps are becoming more and more popular, with many residents of Naples using them to travel each day.

Injuries Common in Uber Accidents
Many rideshare passengers sit in the backseat of the car. While this can lead to similar injuries as sitting in the passenger or driver’s seat, certain injuries could be more severe. At Naples Community Injury Center, we have treated many car accident injuries and we have an experienced, caring staff who can come up with a proper rehabilitation plan for you.
Neck injuries are very common following a car accident. These injuries can occur to bones, vertebrae, and soft tissue. Neck injuries are very specific to the person suffering from them, so your treatment will depend on how severe your neck injury is.
One of the most common neck injuries is whiplash. Whiplash is an injury that happens when your neck jerks backward and then forward in a quick snapping motion. This type of injury is very common when you have been rear-ended in a car accident. If you have been involved in an Uber accident and are experiencing whiplash, we have physiotherapists ready to treat you.
Back injuries can cause many problems that affect other areas of the body as well. Some common back problems include herniated discs, broken bones, soft tissue injuries, and sciatica. These injuries can be long-lasting and cause serious pain. They can also cause problems related to other extremities.
Injuries to the back can affect your legs, arms, hands, and feet, causing decreased mobility and flexibility. Normal activities can become increasingly painful as you try to accomplish them. For back injuries, our team will often use a mix of physiotherapy and chiropractic adjustments.
Spine injuries can be among the most severe following a car accident. These injuries can result in very serious health problems (including complete paralysis), and even the most minor injuries can take a long time to recover from. Some may even take years. With the right treatment plan, your spine injury recovery time can be greatly reduced.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries include strains, sprains, and tendon issues that can occur almost anywhere on the body. These injuries can be very painful, and while they can take a while to heal, they can also take a while to start to show symptoms.
Some of the most common symptoms of soft tissue injuries include muscle spasms, joint pain, soreness, stiffness, and difficulty moving. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, do not hesitate to contact us for treatment options.
How Naples Community Injury Center Can Treat Uber Accident Injuries
Naples Community Injury Center offers a variety of chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapies that can help you recover from your injuries. Each of the techniques we offer is designed to help you heal from your injuries safely and effectively.
The treatments that we offer can help you progressively heal your injuries, ensuring that we are not overworking or underworking your injury.
We will design a plan that begins with the acute phase, which is where we will work on the affected area and relieve pain, then we will work up to the rehab phase. After your injury has been rehabilitated, we will begin the strengthening stage. In this stage, we will work to get you back to feeling as good or better than you did before your Uber accident.
Will You Have to Pay for Your Treatment Following an Uber Accident?
When you are involved in an Uber accident, and you are not the driver, you should not be held responsible for the damages done to you.
In order to ensure that you are not paying out of pocket for injuries that weren’t your fault, you should seek legal counsel to discuss your options when it comes to paying for treatment. If you need an attorney, we can recommend some that have worked with our patients in the past.
These attorneys often work on a contingency basis, which means their services will be of no cost to you unless they reach a settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company and obtain your compensation.
