Advocating for You: Personal Injury Lawyer
As you go about your busy life, sometimes the unexpected happens. You may be driving to work, shopping for groceries, or even visiting the doctor for routine treatment. And then, in an instant, your life changes. An injury can turn your entire world upside down. As you try to deal with the pain of your injuries and get back to a normal life, your bills keep piling up. The stress of missing work, locating quality medical care, and juggling your finances can be overwhelming.
Did you know that if your personal injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, then you can seek compensation? That’s right. Your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and even pain and suffering may entitle you to repayment, empowering you to secure your family’s future.
Of course, the process of settling a claim can be overwhelming. Insurance companies don’t make it easy for you. The complicated paperwork, long phone calls (usually on hold), and feeling you are nothing more than a claim number, leave even those with the most patience frustrated.
Insurance Companies Want You to Settle for Less
The goal of most insurance companies is to make a profit. They have no problem collecting your monthly premiums. When it comes to settling claims, however, they drag their feet. They offer you much less than you are entitled. Or, even worse, they deny your claim. As they line their pockets, you and your family struggle to pay monthly bills and put food on the table.
Have you recently been injured due to the negligence of another person? Have your injuries prevented you from providing from your family and living the life you once enjoyed? Are the insurance companies giving you the runaround in hopes that you settle for much less than you deserve?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, the Ward Law Group is ready to help. We understand the “tricks” of insurance companies. And, frankly, it makes us furious to see hard-working families like yours suffer while they make record profits. We have a personal commitment to make sure that those who suffer from injuries have the money to ensure their family’s security.
Understanding the claims process is difficult, for people of every background. However, Spanish-speaking individuals are even more vulnerable to the greed of insurance companies. Insurance companies see the language barrier as an opportunity to underestimate claims and put families in dire financial circumstances.
The moment you call the Ward Law Group, you know you have a trusted ally helping you through every step of your personal injury claim. We take care of the paperwork and communications so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
Common Types of Personal Injury Claims That We Settle
The Ward Law Group is dedicated to helping everyday people recover losses due to personal injuries. The founder, Gregory Ward, once represented insurance companies. He saw how people just like you were being denied the money that they needed because of the insurance companies’ desire to make a profit. He knew that this was wrong. This is why he decided to shift his focus and help victims who have suffered from personal injuries. His intimate knowledge of how insurance companies operate makes him a skilled negotiator and litigator. In short, he is ready to help you get the money you deserve.
According to the National Safety Council, an American is accidentally injured every second. In addition, someone is killed every three minutes by preventable accidents, including car crashes, falls, or drownings. These unfortunate events put a strain on a person’s well-being and family life. If you find yourself in a situation where your injury is someone else’s fault, a personal injury claim may help ease your financial burdens.

And, if your car was damaged, you may not have a way to get to work or run everyday errands.
The law states that people involved in accidents due to another person’s negligence should receive compensation. Of course, getting their fair share of the money isn’t always easy. The Ward Law Group steps in when you’re suffering so you don’t have to deal with all the complexities of filing a claim.
Types of Personal Injuries & Compensation
From falling on an unsafe floor to a rollover car accident, the Ward Law Group is ready to help you. We know injuries from these types of accidents can range from nagging pain to debilitating conditions. Over the years, we’ve helped people with all kinds of injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Bulging discs
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Damage to internal organs
- Lower back injuries
- Loss of senses (e.g. blindness or deafness)
- And many more
These injuries can disrupt your life. They keep you from doing the things that you love. In fact, they may even destroy your career. This is why it is so important to seek compensation for your injuries. You don’t want to spend months, years, or even the rest of your life worrying about how you will keep your family afloat. The accident wasn’t your fault. So, why should you continue to suffer?
A Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Pay For…
- Medical Bills: Significant injuries can cost thousands of dollars or more. The expenses of emergency room visits, inpatient care, surgery, and physical therapy quickly build up. Even if you have insurance, the medical bills can put a major dent in your family’s budget.
- Property Damage: If your car was damaged during an accident, you not only have to deal with a lack of transportation, you need to find a way to pay for repairs. Even a simple fender bender can cost hundreds of dollars.
- Lost Wages: While you were in the hospital or receiving therapy, you weren’t able to work. These lost wages can put your family in serious financial trouble.
- Loss of Earning Capacity: Permanent injuries can keep you from returning to your job or excelling in your career. These factors are important when settling a personal injury claim.
- Pain & Suffering: While a broken bone or road rash may be easy to detect, the intangibles of an injury aren’t always as easy to articulate. A personal injury lawyer can help calculate compensation for painful conditions as well as emotional trauma due to an accident.
The Ward Law Group is dedicated to securing the maximum compensation for your injuries, property damage, and suffering. For example, one of our clients was injured in a truck accident. The insurance company initially offered him $200,000. Based on his injuries and circumstances, we knew this wasn’t enough for him to support his family. We worked hard to negotiate a $700,000 settlement.
Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident
If you are involved in an accident, the first thing you want to do is make sure that you are safe. If possible, get out of harm’s way and call your local emergency number. Find someone to take pictures of the accident scene and obtain the contact information of any witnesses.
As soon as possible, you want to open up a claim with your insurance company. If the accident or injury was not your fault, you may want to contact a personal injury lawyer like those at the Ward Law Group.
Why do you need a personal injury lawyer? The insurance claims process can be stressful and difficult. While you recover from your injuries, the last thing you want to do is deal with long phone calls or complicated paperwork. Also, you don’t want the insurance company to trick you into settling for less money than you deserve. Remember, insurance companies want to protect their profits. A couple of unknowing mistakes on your part can cost you thousands of dollars.
The law limits the time you have to file a personal injury claim, so you don’t want to put off calling a personal injury lawyer.
