Why is it Important to Start Your Case With Us?

After a car accident, many people feel confused and overwhelmed. To ensure that your rights are well protected during the process of filing a claim, a specialized car accident attorney plays a very important role when it comes to fighting for fair compensation for your injuries. If you have been involved in a car accident in Florida, here are the reasons why it would be beneficial to contact an experienced and trusted car accident law firm like the Ward Law Group Pl, as soon as possible.

A Reputation for Excellence in Car Accident Law

You may not be aware of the laws that apply to your specific case, including comparative fault laws and statutes of limitations unless you have specialized legal training. You need a qualified car accident attorney who understands how to maximize your claim. An experienced car accident attorney can help you identify the relevant laws and issues that relate to your incident, as well as explain how they are interpreted within the local court system. If you’ve been injured in a car accident in Florida, you increase your chances of winning the case and collecting maximum results when you enlist the services of a car accident attorney who understands Florida automobile accident law. Due to the Ward Law Group's specialization in car accident cases, Jany Martinez-Ward is frequently requested to provide legal expertise to audiences of Miami area news organizations. Additionally, because of their deep knowledge of car accident law, Greg Ward and Jany Martinez-Ward have been invited by the Florida Bar Association to write a chapter on "Practice and Procedure in Handling Automobile Cases" for the 10th edition of Florida Civil Practice Before Trial.

Communicating With Insurance Companies

It is common for car accident victims to file a claim with their insurance companies as soon as they are involved in an accident. However, if you do not have legal support when dealing with insurance companies, you might end up getting very low and unfair compensation. Insurance adjusters work for the company's benefit, so it is not in their interest to offer you the full compensation you are entitled to. A car accident lawyer with experience knows how to negotiate with insurance companies. Specialized car accident attorneys are well-versed in both insurance law as well as the language of insurance policies that dictate coverage, limitations, and exclusions. As a result, you will have a greater chance of receiving maximum compensation for injuries sustained because of a car crash.

Determining Compensation

When an injured person needs assistance determining the amount of compensation they are entitled to, a Florida car accident attorney will be able to assist them. A skilled car accident attorney will ensure that the victim receives compensation for:
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages or income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation
  • Repairs for their car
  • Property damage
  • Additional damages

Providing Proof of Liability

Liability is the key to proving your car accident claim in court. Liability may be harder to prove than you think. Even if the police and witnesses report the other driver was at fault, proving that they were careless enough to breach a duty of care can be challenging. To prove fault or negligence, a car accident lawyer must prove the following four elements:
  • You were owed a duty of care by the at-fault party
  • The at-fault party breached this duty
  • You sustained injuries due to the breach of duty
  • You suffered losses due to your injuries

Supporting evidence

Your car accident claim is only as strong as the evidence you can provide. During a thorough investigation of your car accident, the Ward Law Group will gather sufficient evidence to prove the accident caused your injuries. Depending on the circumstances, you may have to provide evidence to insurers and, if necessary, to a court. However, if you take too long to start to initiate your claim, evidence and records could be erased. When you hire the Ward Law Group as your accident attorney, we ensure that all essential evidence is recovered. In order to prove your case, you may have to provide evidence in the following ways:
  • Camera footage from nearby businesses and witnesses  
  • Accident scene photos
  • Cell phone photos 
  • Accident reports
  • Statements from witnesses
  • Medical records
  • Medical scans and tests

Negotiating Your Best Options

A Florida car accident lawyer can help you determine what settlement options are available to you. Despite what many people think, many car accident claims are settled out of court. This means that the at-fault party's insurance company will probably make you a compensatory offer. Your Florida car accident attorney will help you understand the potential consequences of accepting their offer, as once it is accepted, it will be impossible for you to sue them again. As your lawyer helps you determine fair compensation for your claim, he will negotiate a better deal for you based on the circumstances.

Presenting a Powerful Car Accident Case in Court

You can seek justice in court if out-of-court negotiations fail. If you attempt to file a lawsuit on your own, the insurance company and attorney for the at-fault party may attempt to prevent you from doing so. Having an experienced knowledgeable Florida car accident attorney by your side will prevent you from giving in to pressure. During the process, the lawyer will ensure that all the necessary documents are submitted to file your case. Your lawyer will offer you excellent, highly skilled legal representation in court, answer all your questions on your behalf, and keep you up to date on all court proceedings throughout the case. Throughout the litigation process, the lawyer will present all the evidence strategically and make use of his tricks and tactics to win the case. All this will help to increase the chances of getting full compensation and full justice for your injuries.
