How the Personal Injury Attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey Can Help You



A Helping Hand When Injured Floridians Need It


When you’re involved in an accident, it can throw your entire life off course. One second you’re starting a family and in the running for a promotion, and the next you’re lying in a hospital bed trying to recover from something completely unexpected.

 

You know that you need medical care to get better, but you spend the entire time worrying. How are you going to pay for this? Where is your family going to find the money to cover your lost income? Will that promotion – or even your job – still be there by the time you get better?

 

These are the kinds of things that no one wants to have to go through. It’s why people in South Florida try to be as careful as possible – wearing safety gear, driving the speed limit, and taking whatever precautions we can. Unfortunately, as the experienced injury attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey know all too well, even the most safety-minded person in the world can’t always protect themselves or their families if someone else acts in a negligent manner.

 

In a perfect world, no one would ever have to pay for someone else’s mistake, but the world we live in is far from perfect. Our goal is to give you a voice when you need it most, and make sure that you and the people that you love are treated in a fair and equitable manner. It isn’t about using your injury to get money, but rather making sure that when someone else knocks you off of your feet, you have the ability to get back up and keep going.

Fighting Back for Public Safety in Florida


Most people in and around Ft. Lauderdale want to be good and do what’s right. If they see someone in trouble, they try to help. If they realize they’re doing something that’s hurting others, they stop. Unfortunately, this is not true for everyone out there. They deny wrongdoing. They justify harmful actions. Their first thought is to protect themselves – even at the cost of others.

 

This is the reason that all societies have laws and punishments. Without a set of rules and regulations in place that individuals and organizations have to follow, and a method by which they can be held accountable for their actions, some will simply keep behaving in harmful ways. If you want to have a safer world for you and your family, it’s up to you to call them on it.

 

When we take a case at Lawlor, White & Murphey, it’s because we strongly believe that doing so will not only bring you justice, but also help to protect the public by decreasingly the likelihood that someone else will get hurt in the same way. This is true for cases involving both individuals and organizations.

 

If people who habitually drink and drive read about a drunk driver having to pay $500,000 in damages to someone, it’s likely to make them think twice before doing it again. And when businesses are held accountable in this way, there are often clauses that legally force them to change their ways or suffer even worse consequences.

Why Motorcycles Accidents Are More Dangerous Than Car Accidents
June28, 2016
Posted By: John Lawlor

Motorcycles are cool, loud, edgy… and risky. While you may look dangerous while cruising the road on your hog, the reality is that it is you who is in danger. Motorcycles are considered the most dangerous motor vehicle on the road, topping passenger cars and tractor-trailers with shocking statistics. Simply put, motorcyclists are at a far higher risk to be involved in, and die from, traffic-related accidents.
 
Why Are Motorcycles So Dangerous?
 
Motorcycles are less stable than cars, and also much smaller. Even though they may be able to weave in and out of traffic with ease, saving you time and gifting you with great gas mileage, tough road conditions and loose gravel can cause more harm to a motorcycle than it can to a four-wheeled passenger car.…

The Difference between Tractor Trailer and Car Accidents
June21, 2016
Posted By: Ben Murphey

We all know the feeling of passing a big tractor trailer on the highway. It’s a little scary to squeeze your tiny car past a huge mammoth of a vehicle. You may wonder if the large truck can even see you. And what if they want to change lanes? How would you escape if they started merging while you are still in the way?
 
Yes, tractor trailers are intimidating on the road. And rightfully so. Over 500,000 accidents involving tractor trailers occur in the United States each year, and they don’t just cause minor scrapes. Plus, if you are involved in an accident with a tractor trailer, your insurance claim is likely to be quite a bit more complicated than a run-in with another passenger vehicle.…

What to Expect From Your Slip and Fall Lawsuit
June09, 2016
Posted By: Anthony White

Experiencing a fall can be a truly serious matter. Often, people may not even realize how injured they are until after they are looked at by a doctor, and they’re shocked to discover that their simple “slip” caused permanent damage or will take years to recover from.
 
How are they going to pay for it? How will they work? How will they live?
 
If you fell on someone else’s property because they were negligent, you would hope that they would do the right thing and take responsibility. That they would pay for your recovery. But all too often this isn’t the case. Your only recourse is to file a lawsuit to ensure you get the compensation you need to move on with your life.…
