The Best Personal Injury Lawyers in Pembroke Pines, Florida

We all like to think that we could enjoy our daily routine without encountering any accidents or injuries. Unfortunately, even the safest, most careful people may still fall victim to injury because of the negligence of others. As a result, their lives are turned upside down with searing pain and trips to the doctor. Their injuries keep them from doing their jobs or furthering their careers, leaving them with a stack of unpaid bills. They never wanted to be in this situation. Unfortunately, someone’s lack of attention, failure to keep an area safe, or reckless behavior put their life and livelihood at risk.

Does all of this sound familiar? Has an accident that wasn’t your fault left you with debilitating injuries? Did an unsafe area in a store or other public area cause you to slip and fall? Or, maybe your employer made your workplace more dangerous in an endeavor to save money.

Whatever the cause of your personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation. If a person or entity acted negligently, then you have the right to file a claim or sue the responsible party.

Filing a Claim Can Be Complicated

You’re dealing with pain. You seem to have an endless stream of doctor’s or specialist’s appointments scheduled. The last thing you want is the hassle of filing a claim or initiating litigation. Let’s face it. Most people don’t know all of the work that a personal injury claim involves. And, if you’re dealing with an insurance company, they will try to get you to settle for much less than you actually deserve. This is actually how they make a profit.

Is English your second language? You may have additional barriers to securing a fair claim. Trying to understand complex legal or insurance company jargon may be overwhelming. Insurance companies know this and often use it to their advantage. They may employ an arsenal of technical terms to confuse you and pressure you into accepting a low-ball offer.

Of course, you don’t have to go about this alone. The Ward Law Group helps both English- and Spanish-speaking individuals in and around Pembroke Pines. We get to know you and your situation. Using the information provided, we take care of the paperwork and communications with your insurance company or the other party. If your personal injury case goes to litigation, you will be represented by our experienced team who have secured millions for our clients.

Personal Injury Statistics for Pembroke Pines, Florida

If you spend any time on Pines Boulevard or driving on I-75, then you’ve encountered your fair share of lousy drivers. What you probably didn’t know is that in 2016 a team at Cambridge Mobile Telematics designated Pembroke Pines as one of the most dangerous cities in the nation to drive in. According to an article in Broward Palm Beach New Times, only Jersey City, NJ ranked as more dangerous.

The article listed a slew of dangerous driving habits of which residents of Pembroke Pines were guilty. They included hard turning, harsh braking, and distracted driving. Think about it. It’s even safer to drive in big city Miami. 

Furthermore, car and truck accidents make up a huge chunk of personal injury claims. Of course, this isn’t the only type of injury that deserves compensation. Say a worker hastily put up a display in the Pembroke Lakes Mall. Unfortunately, it made the area a tripping hazard. A slip and fall injury can also be handled by a personal injury attorney.

Whatever the cause of your injury, The Ward Law Group will work hard for you. We help clients get the money that they need to recover from injuries and support their families in Pembroke Pines and other areas in Broward County.

Florida Law & Personal Injury Compensation

If you were involved in a car accident, then Florida has “no-fault” car accident compensation laws. This means that you need to file a claim with your insurance company immediately after an accident. The personal injury protection (PIP) clause of your policy covers a predetermined amount for your injuries. If the cost of your injuries goes beyond the PIP coverage, then you have the right to sue the other party for the extra expenses.

Other personal injuries may be a little more complicated. For example, if you were injured on the job, then you’ll want to notify your supervisor immediately. Then, you will have to fill out a First Notice of Injury form with as much detailed information as possible. According to Florida law, your claim may be rejected if you wait more than 30 days to notify your workplace.

Also, in the state of Florida, you have four years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit in the civil courts. Florida also has “pure comparative negligence” laws. This means that if the case is taken to court and the jury finds you in any way responsible for the injury, you will not be able to settle for the full amount you requested. For example, say you were injured in a car accident and sued for $50,000. The jury determines that you were 20% responsible for the accident. This means that you will only receive a $40,000 settlement.

Sound complicated? This is precisely why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to guide you through the twists and turns of the legal process.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

With any injury, you’ll want to make sure you are safe and out of harm’s way. In the case of an auto accident, shut off your car, and, if possible, move away from any traffic. For a slip and fall injury, make sure that you don’t put yourself into a situation where you make your injuries worse.

As soon as possible, call 911 or your local emergency number. If you feel any pain or suspect injuries, then seek treatment immediately. Even if you don’t notice any signs of pain, you should still get checked out by your doctor a day or two after the incident. After all, some injuries may not exhibit symptoms until days—even weeks—after an accident. If you don’t get checked out by a doctor right after an accident, it may jeopardize your chances for a successful claim.

Also, take pictures of the accident scene. If you can’t do it yourself, ask someone to send them to you. Make sure you obtain the contact information—name, phone number, and address—of any witnesses. Their accounts of the accident may be a deciding factor in the other party’s negligence.

If you believe your injury was the result of someone else’s negligent behavior, consider enlisting the help of a personal injury attorney. It’s not always easy to prove that the other party was at fault for your injury. And, let’s face it. The paperwork, communications with the insurance company, and litigation can be way too complicated to handle on your own. It’s ok to request outside assistance.

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