Advocating for You: Personal Injury & Reckless Driving Lawyers

Whenever you get behind the wheel, you have an obligation to obey the law and follow safe driving practices. Of course, in a perfect world, other drivers would extend this same courtesy to you. Doing so ensures that your interactions with others on the road are safe ones. Sadly, we live in a far from perfect world. Roughly 90% of all car crashes result from human error—and from reckless driving in particular.

But, what reckless driving mean exactly? After all, you could reasonably call texting while driving “reckless.” But, we have another term for that as well: Reckless driving. So what falls under the umbrella of “reckless driving”?

Reckless driving describes a state of mind. When a person recklessly drives, he or she is demonstrating a blatant disregard for both the rules of the road and the safety of others. Reckless driving involves major offenses such as speeding, unsafe lane changes, tailgating, failure to signal, and much more. Of course, this is a much more serious charge than mere negligence. In fact, each state defines reckless driving in slightly different ways.

Simply put, reckless driving often leads to accidents. And, anytime you become a victim of an accident, you’re going to need an experienced legal team to help. This is where The Ward Law Group comes in. Our expert team of attorneys has nearly a decade of experience in handling every variation of car accident claim imaginable. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on serving both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities. If you speak Spanish, don’t let that get in the way of receiving the compensation you deserve from a reckless driver. Contact us today!

Common Types of Reckless Driving Claims that We Settle

Acts of reckless driving are responsible for over 33% of all car accident fatalities. This translates into roughly 13,000 deaths annually.

Not only does reckless driving increase the chances of an accident occurring, but it also makes it much more likely for the participants involved to sustain injuries in a collision. Specific types of reckless driving may include:

  • Drunk Driving: When a driver is drunk, they are much more likely to speed, tailgate, and perform other unpredictable driving maneuvers. Drunk driving also accounts for roughly 30% of all car accident fatalities each year.
  • Reckless Driving: Reckless driving is the #1 cause of car accidents across the nation. As with drunk driving, a Reckless driver is more likely to exhibit reckless driving behavior. Usually, this comes in the form of failing to yield to stop signs or the right-of-way.
  • Road Rage Accidents: Remember, reckless driving is a state of mind that causes a blatant disregard for the safety of others. Drivers who experience road rage may attempt to brake suddenly in front of cars, tailgate, or other aggressive maneuvers.

Of course, these examples represent only three types of accidents that are related to reckless driving. Other forms of motor vehicle collisions that may result from acts of reckless driving include:

  • Rear-End Collisions
  • Rollover Accidents
  • Head-On Collisions
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • T-Bone Collisions
  • Rideshare Accidents
  • …and more.

If you find yourself on the receiving end of a reckless driving accident, contact The Ward Law Group to optimize your claim. You shouldn’t have to suffer physically or financially because of the carelessness of others!

Types of Reckless Driving Injuries & Compensation

It is not uncommon for a car crash to result in injury, but this is especially the case in automobile accidents that involve reckless driving. (And, this doesn’t even include injuries related to emotional trauma and psychological distress.) Common physical injuries that result from reckless driving may include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Lacerations & Burns
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Broken Bones
  • Disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Concussions
  • …and more.

Were you the victim of a reckless driving accident? If so, then seek out experienced legal help. A veteran team of reckless driving attorneys can maximize your claim, helping you secure the following forms of compensation:

  • Property Damage: Involves damage to your vehicle as well as other personal belongings such as your clothes, smartphone, and jewelry.
  • Medical Expenses: This category covers visits to the hospital, physical therapy, medicine, surgery, and more.
  • Lost Wages & Earnings Capacity: The former includes lost pay from missed workdays because of your injury. The latter covers potential wages that you will lose in the event that your injury becomes permanent.
  • Intangible Damages: If you suffered from psychological trauma or emotional distress as a result of your accident, then you may be able to receive compensation.

These are just a few common examples of compensation types that an experienced legal team will empower you to claim. To make this happen, however, you need to enlist a veteran group of skilled attorneys. For that, you should look no further than The Ward Law Group. Gregory Ward and Jany Martinez-Ward have successfully recovered millions of dollars in compensation over their near-decade of service. Contact us today and begin your journey back to health and financial security!

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After an Accident

First things first, whenever you are involved in a car collision of any kind, you must contact the police and seek medical attention immediately. If you do not take these actions, it may affect your potential settlement in the long run. Therefore, always ensure that this gets done ASAP. If you do plan on opening a claim, make sure that you abide by your state’s statute of limitations. Many states require that you pursue your case within 2 years of the date of the accident. Failure to do so within this timeframe may invalidate your claim.

If you are not injured, it is always a good idea to collect as much evidence as possible while at the scene of the accident. For one, the police who arrive at the scene will write up a police report. You should definitely ask for a copy of this document. This account of events will prove to be a valuable resource later on as you pursue your claim. Additionally, try to obtain the contact information of all those involved, including witnesses to the incident. Also, if your smartphone was not damaged in the accident, take advantage of your camera by snapping photos of all property damage, injuries, and the general location of the scene.

And, of course, if you wish to pursue legal action, get in touch with your insurance company as well as a team of experienced attorneys. When talking to your insurance company about the accident, be sure to recount the details of the event with the utmost honesty. If you give false or incorrect information, your insurance company may not cover some of the damages that resulted from your accident.

How the Ward Law Group Can Help

Even in cases where you walk away unscathed, car accidents are life-changing. Many people only have one mode of transportation. Having that suddenly taken away from you is a big shock. This only compounds the fact that you now have to contend simultaneously with complicated legal nuances and varying degrees of financial damages. An experienced team of attorneys will be able to lighten the load on you tremendously as you pursue your case.

But again, the key here is experience. Not everyone has it. And, even some who do have it, don’t bear great track records. The Ward Law Group not only has nearly a decade of experience serving clients, but they have also recovered millions of dollars in damages over the years for their clients. And don’t forget, if you speak Spanish, that’s not a problem. We proudly serve both the English- and Spanish-speaking communities. Don’t let your native language deter you from pursuing the compensation that you’re rightfully owed. Contact The Ward Law Group today!

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