The Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Hollywood, FL

According to Google, an accident is defined as an event that happens by chance — something without a deliberate or obvious cause. Typically, an accident of any kind is followed rather quickly by some degree of damage or personal injury. These potentially life-changing events spawn from seemingly nowhere. No matter how cautious or experienced you may be, accidents happen. As humans, we do what we can to counteract such emergencies through services such as health insurance or by simply maintaining a deep savings account. But, these measures can only prepare you so much. Simply put, the sudden nature of accidents will inevitably create overwhelming stress in your life. Whether you’re prepared or not.

If you suffer a personal injury from your accident, your situation already has an added layer of complexity to it. You’re in pain. You likely have medical bills piling up. And, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re going to be out of work for a while to boot. Of course, that’s not even considering the possibility that your accident was caused by a negligent party. Now, you have the beginnings of a legal headache on your hands. With all of these things crashing down on you at once, it can easily feel as though the world is stacked against you.

The Ward Law Group is here to help alleviate some of these stressors for you. Our firm boasts nearly a decade of experience in helping clients secure compensation for damages incurred because of the negligence of others. We understand the pain that you’re going through and are here to help. Additionally, we also provide our legal services to both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities.

Personal Injury Statistics For Hollywood, FL

According to Florida Health, there were 11,308 non-fatal hospitalizations in Broward County in 2018. Out of that number, 9,956 (or 88%) of these injuries occurred as a result of accidents. This number has remained relatively constant over the years. However, compared to Florida’s other counties, these numbers appear to be on the higher end of the spectrum.

Of course, remember: these values only reveal non-fatal hospitalizations that occur in Broward County. Fatal injuries and non-fatal emergency department visits do not make the cut. Even still, Broward County manages to beat out many locations across the country when it comes to high-volume personal injury statistics.

Does this really come as a surprise though? After all, Broward county is a pretty big place with over 1.9 million people living within its borders. You may be trying to figure out the per capita values for such numbers. However, when we are involved in an accident, the odds become irrelevant. It’s the consequences that we care about.

At the end of the day, it’s your health and happiness that are most important. The Ward Law Group will fight to help you achieve those vital components back. Injury cases are very draining on the victim. Let us take care of the legal legwork for you! With The Ward Law Group, you are guaranteed to secure the compensation you deserve for your troubles.

Types of Personal Injuries

Florida is one of the most dangerous states in which to drive. In fact, the roads are deemed unsafe enough that they easily make lists of the worst intersections and highways in the country. For example, one of the most dangerous stretches of I-95 is the portion that runs through Miami-Dade and Broward County. You’re much more likely to get into a car accident in the state of Florida than almost anywhere else.

Car accidents account for the largest percentage of personal injuries each year. Of course, there are other ways to sustain injuries. It just so happens that if you do suffer injuries from an accident, however, it’s most likely to be from a car collision. Here is a list of common injuries that result from automobile accidents:

Many of the injuries here may prevent you from being able to accomplish daily activities that you would routinely carry out. Of course, becoming a victim of an accident is not exactly a normal circumstance. The Ward Law Group is here to help you power through this difficult time. Contact us today to find out more about the variety of ways in which we can help get your life back on track!

Florida Law & Personal Injury Compensation

Personal injury cases cover a lot of ground. Naturally, it follows that many laws can come into play. For the sake of brevity, this section will focus primarily on car accident laws in the state of Florida.

Before anything, you must know this: Florida’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases is four years. This means that you have a maximum period of four years following your accident to file a claim. Failing to do so may result in an outright dismissal of your case.

In addition, Florida falls under a unique category of states: the no-fault state. The law requires every motor vehicle operator to carry a minimum of $10,000 in PIP coverage that is separate from each individual’s insurance plan. In the majority of cases, a driver cannot sue another individual directly for causing the accident. Instead, your own car insurance covers the cost of damages such as your medical bills and lost earnings.

That being said, in some instances (e.g. when the victim suffers a permanent injury), the injured party may directly file a claim against an at-fault driver. This is called passing the “serious injury threshold.” If you fall under this category, then you’re definitely going to require expert legal guidance to receive the full compensation that you rightfully deserve. Even if you don’t pass this threshold, it’s still a good idea to recruit a team of lawyers who know what they are doing. After all, you may be entitled to more forms of compensation than you initially realize. (Like loss of consortium, for example.)

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

Immediately after an accident, you must ensure the safety of those involved first. If you’re a victim in a car accident, for example, you’ll want to shut off your car and move out of the way of traffic.

You should seek out the assistance of emergency responders as soon as an accident occurs. Make sure to request police involvement. Officers at the scene will write up a report that you will need while filing your claim. Make sure that you receive a copy of this crucial document. In addition, it is also very important that you request medical evaluation immediately—even if you don’t notice any negative symptoms. Failing to seek out immediate medical care may hurt your case in the future. Not doing so makes your injuries seem less severe to the court than they may actually be.

Of course, if you are able, you should try to gather as much information as possible. Obtain the contact information of those involved in the accident (including any witnesses to the event). If you have a smartphone on your person, use that to your advantage. Take pictures of all relevant elements, including any property damage or injuries you may have suffered.

Lastly, if your injuries or property damage were the result of another’s negligence, make sure to contact The Ward Law Group. Proving fault is no easy task and it is a nigh-impossible feat without expert legal guidance. Having a legal team behind you will offload so much stress from your chaotic situation. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help.

All around amazing!

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way. They showed that they truly care about their clients.  I only wish I knew about them when my husband was in a car/motorcycle accident last year.
