Common and Surprising Injuries in an Uber Accident

Rideshare Accidents

The last thing any one of us would want to be is involved in a car accident. With the number of inexperienced drivers in our streets masquerading as qualified Uber drivers, accidents have become more likely to occur, and some of these can be catastrophic depending on the various circumstances surrounding the accident. It is important to seek medical attention right after an Uber accident because you’ll be able to get the care that you need and prevent a complication from becoming something life-threatening, but seeing a doctor after an Uber accident will help you document everything, and it’s this evidence that will help you seek the compensation you truly deserve once you file an Uber accident lawsuit.

Here are some of the most common injuries in Uber accidents:

  1. Broken Bones

The velocity at which any car is traveling will determine the type of injuries the occupants will experience at the time of impact. Broken bones are a common complication of Uber accidents because of the awkward position of the body and its inability to move in the car. Once the bones absorb the G-Forces, they will snap and break due to their location, stuffed between the front seat and the back of the seat. Broken bones may require pins and screws, a cast or sling.

  1. Whiplash and Neck Injuries

The body comes to a sudden stop during a crash, and this jerks the upper body and neck forward and then back in an unnatural manner. This causes whiplash, or a type of injury caused by the sudden movement of the neck vertebra or bones, as well as the cartilage, tendons and muscles in this general area. Whiplash treatment involves wearing a brace or cervical collar to keep your neck in a stationary position until it heals, and the administration of painkillers and NSAIDs, as needed, with recovery taking a few weeks or months depending on the severity of the whiplash.
