The Best Uber Accident Lawyers in Kissimmee, FL

The advent of ridesharing services like Uber has completely revolutionized the way in which we access our city. Gone are the times that we needed to hail a taxi cab in the absence of more reliable (and affordable) transportation options.

Today, you can schedule an Uber and quickly go anywhere in the city. This is especially useful when you’re coming back from a social gathering and happen to be under the influence. Driving in such a state happens to be not only extremely dangerous, but also, a crime.

This is one of the main reasons why Uber and similar ridesharing services are so popular, particularly among younger generations.

However, accidents can still happen. What if you get into an Uber accident? What if you become seriously injured? Typically, people call an Uber because they expect to experience a safer ride, not because they expect to sustain an injury.

Unfortunately, this is somewhat common. Luckily, our team of Kissimmee, FL uber attorneys is here to provide a helping hand.

The Ward Law Group can help you out if you ever get into an Uber accident. Our team has expert personal injury attorneys with years of experience under their belts. We can help you get the compensation that you deserve.

What’s more, our firm specializes in serving both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities in Kissimmee, Florida. We understand how difficult it can be for a Spanish-only speaking client to translate all the legal particulars from English. In fact, legal jargon can sound almost alien-like even for native English speakers.

Don’t worry if you only speak Spanish. We will make sure that you fully understand the legal landscape and provide you with the legal guidance that you need.

Personal Injury & Uber Accident Statistics for Kissimmee, Fl

According to The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles report, there were an alarming 388,032 crashes in Florida in 2017.

There are no such statistics for Uber accidents in the Kissimmee area, nor for the entire Florida state, for that matter. Florida doesn’t keep statistics on accidents involving rideshare services.

The same report does show, however, that 42,019 of those car accidents involved commercial vehicles.

We also know that only 10 fatal accidents involving Uber were reported in 2016. In 2015, only 5 fatal collisions involving Uber happened. The Uber driver was at fault in only one of the accidents and he was immediately suspended from the ridesharing service.

What can definitely be concluded here is that Uber does make streets safer. The drivers are thoroughly vetted and rigorously trained to ensure their passengers’ safety. However, this still doesn’t prevent even safe drivers from getting into accidents, because there are plenty of other negligent drivers out there.

This is exactly why we’re here. When the unlikely strikes, The Ward Law Group can provide you with professional and personalized representation in legal matters regarding personal injury. We will make sure that you receive the best possible outcome for your settlement. At The Ward Law Group, your needs come first.

Types of Uber Accident Injuries

According to traffic safety facts from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes.

The Florida Department of Transportation sets the speed limits at 70 mph, 65 mph, and 60 mph on Interstate highways, four-lane divided highways outside an urban area, and other state highways, respectively.

However, a great number of drivers don’t follow the rules. They go way above the established speed limits, thinking that an accident won’t happen to them. But the speed of their travel significantly determines the risk of injury if they get into an accident.

The most common types of injuries related to Uber accidents include:

  • concussions and other head injuries
  • scrapes and cuts
  • whiplash (muscle, ligament, and tendon injuries)
  • fractures (broken ribs, skull fractures, and other broken bones)
  • knee trauma
  • internal bleeding
  • herniated disc
  • lacerations
  • PTSD, and other psychological injuries.

If you ever get into an Uber accident in Kissimmee, Florida and sustain any of these or other personal injuries, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

The Ward Law Group specializes in personal injury claims, and we have successfully dealt with a huge number of personal injury cases throughout the years. We can protect your rights and help you get compensation for all of your injuries.

Even if you don’t get injured in the accident, you still have the right to proper compensation. Someone has put your life in danger on the road. If that happens, then you can absolutely depend on The Ward Law Group to secure your best settlement.

Florida Law & Auto Accident Compensation

Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to car accidents. The Florida Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law requires all Florida drivers to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance coverage of at least $10,000 as part of their car insurance.

However, the Florida legislature recently passed a new law regarding insurance claims following ridesharing accidents.Uber now has a $1 million insurance plan, requiring drivers to carry a minimum of $1 million in liability coverage for injury, property damage, and wrongful death, together with their PIP insurance.

Florida Uber drivers must also carry $50,000 in liability coverage for personal injury or death if they are logged into the Uber app and pick up a passenger without accepting their ride request.

If you were a passenger in an Uber accident in Kissimmee, Florida (or any other statewide areas), you should seek damage recovery from the driver to receive compensation for your injuries.

Even if you don’t sustain physical injuries, some psychological injuries may resurface later. Whichever the case, you have every right to make an insurance claim or file a personal injury lawsuit.

Don’t worry, that’s why we’re here. The Ward Law Group can help you get compensated for any and all of your injuries. We can help you out with your personal injury insurance claim and provide legal guidance if the driver was at fault and you wish to file a lawsuit against them.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

If you get in an Uber accident, the first thing you should do is remain calm. As much as it may seem impossible, staying calm will help you think clearly so that you can take all the right steps to maximize your claim.

Immediately following an Uber accident, you should:

  • File a police report: Your Uber driver is responsible for this step, but they don’t often take it. You would need the police report to file an insurance claim, so be sure to talk to the police to obtain a copy of the report.
  • Talk to any witnesses: If anyone was nearby when the accident happened, be sure to speak with them. Their perspective may greatly help with the police.
  • Get in touch with Uber: Talk to Uber associates to see where you stand with the insurance claim. If the driver was at fault for the crash, Uber’s insurance company may choose not to provide the coverage. In that case, you would need to file a claim with the driver’s personal insurance company.
  • Hire a personal injury attorney: This is the most important step you should take. A professional attorney who specializes in personal injury claims will know exactly what to do to help you get the right compensation for your injuries, no matter who was at fault.

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. Dealing with other lawyers had left me with a negative outlook on the whole process. But it’s safe to say The Ward Law Group restored it.
