The Best Lyft Accident Lawyers in Hollywood, Florida

More and more people are using rideshare companies to get to where they need to be. After all, rideshare companies offer an easy, affordable means of transportation without all the hassles of being behind the wheel. This is especially true for tourists, who don’t know their way around Hollywood, FL.

Of course, the goal of Lyft drivers is to make extra money. Some rely on transporting others as a full-time gig while others see it as a lucrative side-hustle. Either way, the more people that your driver transports, the more money that they earn.

Sadly, this mentality can cause some Lyft and rideshare drivers to sacrifice safety for profit. Aggressive driving, poor choices, and distracted driving by a Lyft driver can all put your life at risk—whether you’re a passenger or another driver on the road.

So what happens when you’re involved in an accident with a Lyft driver? Navigating the insurance claims process can be confusing. You may have more questions than answers. For example, if you were the passenger in a Lyft vehicle, which insurance company do you contact? And, if your vehicle is involved in a car crash with a Lyft driver, then do you go after the company or the individual driver?

These are all valid questions that need answers. More importantly, you need to take the proper actions after a Lyft accident to ensure you get the compensation you deserve for injuries, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Wouldn’t it feel better to have someone on your side who knows how to successfully handle these claims?

Many English and Spanish Speaking Florida Residents Got Help. Why Not You?

The Ward Law Group doesn’t want to see innocent victims and their families suffer because of the poor decisions of a Lyft driver. After all, you’re probably in pain, managing multiple doctor’s appointments, and trying to figure out how to afford next week’s groceries. Do you really want to deal with the paperwork, long phone calls, and confusing steps of filing a claim?

One call to The Ward Law Group allows you to start focusing on your recovery while we take care of the claims process. We fetch the necessary paperwork, communicate with the insurance and rideshare companies, and provide the evidence needed for you to get the compensation that you deserve.

Is English your second language? You’re probably facing additional barriers. After all, insurance company lingo is difficult enough for native English speakers to understand. Insurance companies may take advantage of Spanish-speaking victims. Because of the added language barrier, victims may not clearly understand their rights.

As a result, you could be missing out on thousands of dollars to ensure your family’s security.

The Ward Law Group won’t let that happen to you.

Personal Injury & Lyft Accident Statistics for Hollywood, Florida

Hollywood, Florida is a bustling metropolitan area in Broward County with over 150,000 residents. The amazing beaches, emerging nightlife, and tourist attractions bring visitors from all over the world. Both residents and tourists are turning to rideshare companies to assist with work commutes, navigating to attractions, and even running simple errands.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Broward county averages over 40,000 car accidents a year. Of those accidents, over 24,000 involve injuries. Since there is limited data on rideshare accidents, it’s difficult to determine just how many of these accidents involved Lyft drivers. Given the rising popularity of rideshare programs, one can assume Lyft accidents make up a sizable portion of Broward county car accidents.

Types of Lyft Accident Injuries

Lyft drivers use their cars to transport passengers. However, these drivers and cars must meet certain standards to be considered eligible. For example, a standard Lyft car must pass a vehicle inspection. In addition, the driver is also subjected to a background and driving record check.

Nevertheless, car accidents still occur.

Passengers of a Lyft vehicle may experience more severe injuries than their drivers because they can’t brace themselves for the impact. The passengers may be looking at their phones or taking in the beautiful scenery. They may not even see the collision that is about to occur.

Depending on the accident, you may suffer injuries including:

  • Whiplash
  • Bruises and cuts
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Herniated discs
  • Broken bones like the arms, legs, hips, shoulder or ribs
  • Muscle and soft tissue damage
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Concussions or loss of consciousness
  • And, sadly, much more…

Moreover, your injuries may not be just physical in nature. Suffering post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is common after a severe auto accident. This condition can lead to anxiety, depression, and even disturbing dreams. Likewise, living with physical pain and loss of functioning can all affect your mental health.

Both physical and emotional injuries deserve compensation. Of course, you’ll need to successfully prove that these injuries exist. This can be hard to do on your own. An experienced attorney—like those at The Ward Law Group—can ensure that your suffering is documented and taken seriously by the insurance companies.

Florida Law & Auto Accident Compensation

If you were a passenger during a Lyft vehicle accident, it’s unlikely you are at fault. Unless you were being a significant distraction in some way, the Lyft driver or driver of the other vehicle is responsible for your injuries.

Luckily, rideshare companies, like Lyft, require insurance coverage well above Florida’s minimum limits. This means that even if the other driver was at fault and was underinsured, you can recoup losses from the Lyft driver’s insurance.

What if a Lyft accident involved your vehicle? Even if the accident was not your fault, you have to report it to your insurance company. Florida has “no-fault” laws for car accident claims that involve injuries. This means, after a car accident, you use the personal injury protection (PIP) of your car insurance. Of course, if the cost of your injuries is more than your PIP, you can go after the other party for additional damages.

Sound a little confusing?

It sure can be. Luckily, The Ward Law Group can help explain the complicated processes of a Lyft accident claim. Even better, The Ward Law group will take care of the claim process so you can focus on getting your life back to normal.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

A car accident is a traumatic experience. Immediately after a Lyft accident, it may be hard to think clearly. The most important thing you need to do is make sure you are safe and you receive medical attention for your injuries.

Remember: Even if you don’t think that you’re injured, it’s best to get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible. Adrenaline is probably coursing through your body right after an accident. It may not be until after you’ve had a chance to calm down that you start experiencing symptoms. If you wait too long to see a doctor, however, you may be jeopardizing your chances of receiving a fair settlement. In fact, you must seek medical attention within 14 days of your accident for a claim to be considered.

After receiving treatment, get in contact with an attorney who specializes in Lyft accident claims such as those at The Ward Law Group. Furthermore, don’t agree to any settlement with the insurance companies before talking to a lawyer. Insurance companies want to settle for the least amount possible. This is how they make their profits.

Your family doesn’t have to suffer just because the insurance companies want to increase their bottom line.

Let the Ward Law Group Help You Today

By now, you probably understand just how complicated it is to get a fair settlement for your Lyft accident injuries. Trying to navigate the claims process alone could end up costing you thousands of dollars. After all, the insurance companies have “tricks” that may make it harder to obtain a fair settlement. Insurance companies may not return your calls, immediately reject claims, or offer you much less than you deserve.

The Ward Law Group fights hard for both English- and Spanish-speaking individuals who are injured in Lyft accidents. In fact, Gregory Ward used to work for the insurance companies. As such, he knows their tricks. More importantly, he knows how to use the information from your accident and resulting hardships to get you the best settlement possible.

How do you get started? Simply call 855-DOLOR-55 (855-365-6755). Simply answer a few questions and we’ll start filing your successful claim as soon as possible.

Imagine the amazing sense of relief you’ll enjoy after receiving your fair settlement. You’ll no longer have to worry about your family’s security and how to make ends meet. We are ready to help you take the added stress out of the claims process. All it takes is a call.

The Ward Law Group made sure that I got the medical care I needed and kept me informed the entire way.
