The Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Orlando, FL

Life is full of unexpected surprises. Sometimes, these surprises come in the form of randomly finding an extra $20 on the sidewalk. Other times, these surprises prove to be life-changing—and not always in a positive sense.

Of course, we are only allotted a limited amount of control over these phenomena and sometimes “the worst-case scenario” just happens. No one gets out of bed in the morning thinking, “I plan to break a bone or suffer a concussion today.” It just sort of happens. However, when that accident is the result of someone else’s negligence, matters become even more thorny.

Now, you’re getting into legal territory. And, let’s face it. The law is a complicated beast. The average person is simply not well-equipped enough to navigate the legal space. This is especially so when the client is already combating an injury, medical expenses, work absences, and more. This is where The Ward Law Group comes in.

The Ward Law Group has earned over a decade of experience in handling every form of personal injury case imaginable. Our attorneys achieve results. If you are the victim of an accident that results in personal injury, this is the team of lawyers whom you want to call.

Personal Injury Statistics for Orlando, FL

Accidental injuries are more common in the United States than one might initially assume. In fact, the year 2016 saw unintentional injuries as the third leading cause of death in the nation, clocking in at roughly 5.9% of all fatalities.

Of course, this is not just an anomalous occurrence. The previous year saw 146,571 deaths that could be attributed to accidental bodily harm. Unsurprisingly, most of these deaths involved elders (age 75+). This naturally makes a lot of sense, as the elderly tend to have inhibited healing processes and innate fragility because of their advanced age.

Causes of personal injuries are limitless, but there are nevertheless some frontrunning trends in this broad category. For example, the leading causes of accidental fatalities from unintentional injuries include automobile accidents, poisonings, and slip-and-fall incidents.

Whether or not your injury is the result of a common or rare occurrence, The Ward Law Group has the experience to support you every step of the way. You may be surprised to discover just how much compensation your case is worth. That being said, only the best lawyers will be able to tap into that potential. This is why you should contact a team of lawyers whom you can trust. Contact The Ward Law Group of Orlando, FL today to address all of your legal needs!

Types of Personal Injuries

Since the 1990s, occupational injuries have fallen in incidence, but they still constitute a very real threat to American workers. In the workplace environment, the most common accidents involve slip-and-fall incidents or being struck by a falling object. Usually, these types of accidents occur in industries that involve intense physical labor, such as logging or construction.

Of course, other dangers present for those who lead a more sedentary lifestyle. Millions of Americans commute to work, school, and social excursions every day through some form of transportation. Naturally, this breeds an environment with a high rate of automobile accidents. After all, the more people on the road, the more likely vehicle-related injuries are to occur.

Injuries manifest in many different forms, varying from a mild inconvenience to severe and life-altering conditions. The Ward Law Group has experience in every facet of personal injury, including:

  • Food poisoning
  • Blindness & Deafness
  • Lead poisoning
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Bruises & Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Death
  • …and more.

As you can see, this list spans a vast amount of territory. Each and every one of these subjects come with their own legal particulars that affect the potential of your case. Because of this fact, there is no reason to buddy up with a team of lawyers who lack experience. Luckily, The Ward Law Group has legal expertise in spades. To realize the maximum potential of your case, contact The Ward Law Group of Orlando, FL today!

Personal Injury Law & Accident Compensation

There are two important aspects of Florida law that clients should understand before pursuing their case: the state statute of limitations and the law of comparative negligence. In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is four years. That being said, there are special exceptions to this rule in instances where the client’s injury is not discovered until later.

Comparative negligence is a complicated business. Basically, this concept revolves around the idea that the victim’s eligible compensation is directly proportional to the amount of negligence they shared in comparison to the defendant. In other words, if the courts rule that the victim is at fault for 20% of the incident’s negligence, then their potential settlement reduces by 20%.

This is good information to have, but there is something even more basic missing here. What forms of compensation is the victim eligible for? Depending on the nature of your case, you may be able to receive the following:

  • Medical Bills: This includes visits to the doctor, emergency room procedures, medication, and much more.
  • Property Damage: A broad area, property damage covers everything from automobile damages to the clothes on your back.
  • Lost Wages: Simply put, this refers to income that you missed out as a result of absences from work that relate to your injury.
  • Lost Earnings Capacity: If your injury is more long-term or even permanent, then you may be able to receive compensation based on long-term loss of income.
  • Loss of Consortium: If your injury affects your relationship with your family, you may be able to claim financial reparation.

The Ward Law Group is Here For You

The Ward Law Group of Orlando, FL wants nothing more than for you to walk away from your case with the compensation that you deserve. Remember, having a lawyer puts you at the table, but having a good lawyer stacks the cards in your favor. You are going to want every advantage available to you, so don’t hesitate and contact The Ward Law Group today!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

To begin, your personal health is more important than anything else in the world. If you are the victim of an unintentional accident, the first thing that you should do is seek immediate medical attention. Doing so will only strengthen your case. If you fail to request a medical examination within a relatively short window (approximately 2 weeks), it may affect your potential compensation.

Naturally, your next step should be to seek out legal assistance from an expert team of lawyers. This is especially true if your injury is more severe, as this will only add layers of complexity to your case. When you suffer from a major personal injury, you begin to contend with your state’s statute of limitations, the law of comparative negligence, and other esoteric nuances. Stay on top of state laws by enlisting the aid of a lawyer.

Next, you are going to want to become an information-gathering machine. Make sure to keep records of absolutely everything—from medical invoices to property damage estimates. Remember, there is no such thing as aggregating too much information to support your claim. The more records you are able to hand over to your legal team, the more arsenal you will have against the other party.

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.
