The Best Car Accident Lawyer in Kissimmee, FL

We often don’t think about how important cars are to our daily lives until something bad happens. After all, many people use cars as their primary source of transportation. Think about how much you use your car to commute to work, run errands, and even enjoy scenic drives around Florida.

Sadly, even the most careful drivers may, at some point, be involved in a car accident. One moment you’re picking up your kids or driving to a friend’s house and then…

Everything changes.

After the initial shock, your life turns upside down. You have to deal with the effects of physical and psychological trauma. Your car needs repairs which essentially leaves you stranded for days or even weeks. Then there is the pain, doctor’s visits, maybe even surgery.

You may already know that you can obtain a cash settlement if you were injured in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. Unfortunately, many car insurance companies don’t make it that easy. After all, adjusters make their profits by offering you the lowest settlement possible or relying on critical mistakes that you unknowingly make during the claims process. These mistakes can cost you thousands of dollars to pay medical bills or car repairs, put food on the table, and keep your family afloat.

It Doesn’t Have to be This Way

You don’t need to handle the claims process on your own. The Ward Law Group will take care of the hassles of dealing with insurance companies while you focus on getting your life back to normal.

Why choose The Ward Law Group? The founder, Gregory Ward, once worked for the insurance companies. He saw how helpless victims weren’t receiving their fair settlements. In his heart, he knew this was wrong. This is why Gregory Ward started his own personal injury law group. He and his wife, Jany Martinez-Ward, knew that both English- and Spanish-speaking individuals needed representation when their lives were interrupted by a car accident. Gregory’s desires to help struggling families changed the trajectory of his career. For Jany, providing bilingual legal services to the Spanish community was always her vision.

As a result, the Wards have recovered millions of dollars for deserving families involved in car accidents and other unfortunate events. Are you ready to get your fair share?

Personal Injury & Car Accident Statistics for Osceola County

Let’s face it, driving in Florida can be dangerous. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there were over 400,000 motor vehicle crashes in 2017. That averages to be about 1,000 crashes a day. Of those car accidents, almost 167,000 people reported injuries. In fact, 20,380 accidents left drivers or passengers with incapacitating injuries.

A majority of the crashes occurred in heavily populated areas like Miami-Dade and Orange County. This doesn’t mean areas like Kissimmee don’t have their fair share of car crashes. In 2017, Osceola County had an almost 3% increase in car accidents compared to the previous year. Those crashes left 5,436 individuals injured.

What can you do if you were injured in an accident in the Kissimmee area? Requesting the help of a personal injury lawyer familiar with Osceola County is a great first step. The Ward Law Group has experience helping those injured in and around Kissimmee, FL. The more a lawyer knows about an area, the better they can help you with the necessary information to file a successful claim.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

From a distracted driver accident to a roll-over crash, car accident injuries can be devastating. Sadly, it’s not just the individual who suffers. In many cases, families have to deal with lost wages, taking their loved one to doctor or therapy appointments, and the stress of losing their main source of transportation.

If your injuries require serious medical attention and create hardships to your family, you may be entitled to a significant cash settlement. The Ward Law Group has helped numerous individuals suffering car accident injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Muscle damage
  • Burns or lacerations
  • Whiplash or neck injuries
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Internal bleeding and organ damage
  • Concussions or loss of consciousness
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death
  • Mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, or depression

Florida Law & Auto Accident Compensation

As a Florida resident, you’ve probably heard of “no-fault” car accident compensation laws. Of course, you probably haven’t even considered what these laws meant until you were injured in a car accident. So how do Florida laws affect your personal injury claim?

If you were injured in a car accident, then you need to file a claim with your insurance company regardless of who is at fault. Your policy has personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. This means, after paying your deductible, your policy will cover a predetermined amount. So, even if you weren’t to blame, a car accident could actually cost you money.

What if the cost of your injuries goes beyond your PIP coverage? Those with major or permanent injuries can sue the other party to recover damages. If your case goes to trial, a judge or jury will determine the percentages that each party is at fault due to “pure comparative negligence” laws. For example, if you are seeking an extra $5,000 in damages, but a jury determines you were 20% at fault, you will only receive $4,000.

PIP coverage doesn’t pay for property damage. So, if your car—or any other property—was damaged during an accident, you could file a claim with the other driver’s insurance company for repairs.

Sound confusing?

This is why it is essential to hire a personal injury lawyer when settling a claim with significant injuries. If you try to deal with a claim on your own, then you may overlook key factors that play a pivotal role in maximizing your claim. Insurance companies love seeing you make mistakes—it saves them money. Attorneys see the facts and information about car accidents differently. They know the best ways to present information so the insurance companies take notice of your claim.

The Ward Law Group stands beside you throughout the claims process. They know how to prove injuries and hardships so you can get the money you deserve. In fact, The Ward Law Group has a proven track record of providing maximum cash settlements for their clients. For example, one of our clients was involved in a major rollover car accident that led to an extended comatose state. We were able to get her and her family $1,000,000 to help compensate for medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

A car accident is a traumatic experience. Moments after impact you are probably feeling shock, confusion, and even pain. If you are involved in a car accident, then the first thing you want to do is make sure that you are safe. If possible, get out of harm’s way. Call 911 or your local emergency number. The police need to create an accident report which will be crucial to your claims process.

If possible, take pictures of the accident scene. Request the names and contact information of any witnesses. Since this is such an emotionally charged experience, it’s important to obtain extra accounts of the accident—especially if you are not at fault.

If you are injured, seek medical attention. This is no time to be stoic. Even a simple rear-end collision can lead to significant injuries. If you don’t feel any pain initially, you should still get checked out by your doctor within a day or two. Some car accident injuries don’t start showing symptoms until days or weeks after the crash. Medical records are also a very important part of the claims process. If you wait too long to see a doctor, then you may be jeopardizing your claim.

When you are injured in a car accident that is not your fault, you should enlist the help of a personal injury attorney. Lawyers have extensive knowledge of the claims process. You’ll have the peace of mind knowing that all the necessary paperwork and communications with the car insurance companies are expertly handled.

The law limits the time you have to file a personal injury claim after a car accident. In Florida, the statute of limitations is four years. Missing the necessary deadlines will essentially take money out of your pocket.
