The Best Uber Accident Lawyers in Pembroke Pines, FL

It’s no secret: ridesharing apps have made our roads much safer in recent years. It’s a fast, convenient, streamlined service that is easy to use and available almost anywhere. When you have had a little too much to drink at the bar, you may not always have access to transit services when you desperately need them. Services like Uber, however, have been solving this problem for years, decreasing the amount of drunk driving that occurs on the road.

But, of course, whenever you hop into an Uber, you’re putting your life into the hands of the summoned driver. Most of the time, this service operates without a hitch. But, sometimes the situation does not play out as expected. Uber accidents happen, and when they do, it’s a bit more complicated than your average car collision. After all, you’re not just dealing with the Uber driver and a third-party. You now have to contend with the company behind the service. This only adds another layer of complexity to your case. (And, to be perfectly honest, your case was never really that simple, to begin with.)

That is why you’re going to want to enlist experienced legal help. The Ward Law Group is here to extend their expert services to you in your time of need. With nearly a decade of experience, there is practically no variation of car accident claim that our attorneys have not yet handled. And, of course, if you only speak Spanish, that’s no problem when it comes to The Ward Law Group. Our firm extends our legal services to both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities.

Personal Injury & Uber Accident Statistics for Pembroke Pines, FL

Like all other ridesharing services, Uber does not provide their car accident statistics to the public. And, in all likelihood, they will probably never will unless otherwise mandated by state law. All we can really do right now is look at general car accident statistics for the state of Florida and draw inferences. For example, according to Safer America, the year 2016 saw 3,174 car accident fatalities in the sunshine state. This puts Florida in the top three states for traffic-related deaths.

Generally speaking, Florida is a mainstay when it comes to being the top dog for unsettling car accident statistics. This is likely due to a number of contributing factors. For one, Florida is known for having some of the most dangerous roads and intersections in the entire country. Additionally, this state has many populous city hubs with extremely congested roadways and interstates.

There is honestly little that makes the heart sink more than realizing that you’re going to have to pursue legal action because of the negligence of others. It’s a hard, stressful situation in which to find yourself. Naturally, this only becomes worse when you become injured as a result of your accident. Not only do you have to deal with all the legal and financial headaches, but you also must contend with incapacitating injuries simultaneously. The Ward Law Group is here to take some of that weight off of your shoulders. Our team of experienced attorneys will work tirelessly to ensure that your legal pursuits are as pain-free and as successful as possible. Contact our firm today and get your claim started off on the right foot.

Types of Uber Accident Injuries

According to the Department of Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, 2017 witnessed a total of 234 fatalities as a direct result of distracted driving. This statistic is extremely relevant in regard to ridesharing services. These services require the summoned driver to glance regularly at a GPS system in order to transport their clients from point A to point B. And, of course, this is just one of the many forms of distracted driving.

Obviously, car accidents are extremely dangerous with many of them resulting in some form of personal injury to their victims. Naturally, the potential for bodily harm from these incidents ranges from mild to severe and incapacitating. Victims of car accidents may find themselves with injuries such as:

Of course, this list only provides a few possible examples. Obviously, there are many different forms of injury that victims may experience following a car accident. Regardless of the nature of your bodily harm, however, you should always seek out expert legal assistance and medical evaluation as soon as possible. An experienced team such as The Ward Law Group may be able to net you more forms of compensation than you ever even knew you could receive.

Florida Law & Auto Accident Compensation

Before delving into any of Florida’s legal particulars, you must be aware of the state’s statute of limitations for car accident claims. Starting at the date of your accident, you have a period of four years to pursue legal action in order to be eligible for financial reparation.

Firstly, you should know that Florida is a no-fault state. The sunshine state requires that all motor vehicle operators carry a $10,000 personal injury protection plan, as well as an additional $10,000 in property damage liability coverage. With a no-fault state, you must file your claim under these coverages regardless of who caused the accident. Only in extenuating circumstances (e.g. if your injury led to the loss of a major bodily function) are you able to bring your claim directly against the negligent party.

But, what if you’re the driver in one of these scenarios? It’s also important to understand that Florida follows the law of comparative negligence. The court will examine your case to determine how much of the blame you share with the other party in the form of a percentage. This number will directly affect how much you are able to claim for your damages. If you were found to be at 80% fault, for example, then you will only be able to claim up to 20% of your total financial damages.

Don’t worry if all of this sounds confusing. With The Ward Law Group behind you, you will be able to navigate these legal particulars with relative ease. Additionally, our expert team of personal injury lawyers should be able to procure numerous forms of compensation for you, including medical expenses, loss of consortium, psychological distress, lost earning capacity, and more. Don’t leave your claim up to chance. Contact our firm today!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

As far as motor vehicle accidents are concerned, there is not much deviation in the immediate steps you should take. Obviously, your health and that of those around you should be your primary concern. Contact emergency responders ASAP, so that the people who need immediate medical attention can receive it as soon as possible.

Aside from paramedics, you should also get the police involved. The police will be able to direct traffic away from the incident. And, they will also write up a report detailing the nature of the accident. This will come in handy later on when you are pursuing your claim. Providing that you are able, you should also make an effort to exchange contact information with all parties involved. This includes any witnesses to the events that transpired. Also, if your smartphone is still functioning after the collision, use it to your advantage. Take pictures of any property damage and injuries that were a direct cause of the accident in question. There is no such thing as gathering too much evidence.

Lastly, be sure to get in touch with your insurance provider as well as The Ward Law Group. The former will be able to help you get started with your claims process, providing that you give them a detailed and truthful account of the events surrounding your accident. And of course, the sooner you contact The Ward Law Group, the more time our attorneys will have when it comes to preparing your case. Our legal team will give you clear instructions detailing all of the receipts and legal documentation that you should hold on to prior to your court date.

How The Ward Law Group Can Help

The truth is, whenever you deal with an insurance company, you’re going to be initiating a battle to secure the compensation you’re rightfully owed. Insurance adjusters set out to minimize your settlement so that they can walk away having turned a profit. These individuals are smart, highly trained, and know exactly what they need to do in order to make this happen.

You shouldn’t take this lying down. But, the only way you have a fighting chance is through the help of an experienced legal team such as The Ward Law Group. And, of course, this becomes even more vital if Spanish is your primary language. Finding quality legal assistance that doesn’t just cater to English speakers is a challenging endeavor, to say the least. Luckily, with The Ward Law Group, you don’t need to look any further.

All around amazing!

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