Why Work with the Experienced Fort Lauderdale Boating Accident Lawyers from Lawlor, White & Murphey?

Not all personal injury law firms are the same, nor will every personal injury law firm have experience with boating accident cases. You don’t want to just walk into a random firm and hire a lawyer who has never handled this type of case before, because it falls under a unique and complex set of regulations called maritime or admiralty law. Don’t just hire a car accident lawyer for your boating accident case.

Maritime law can be so complex that in Florida, attorneys need to be specially board certified to practice it. Fortunately, the attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey have more than 40 years of experience with maritime law between them. They can help you make sense of your boating accident, determine who is at fault, and pursue the proper course of action to get you the compensation you need.

Lawlor, White & Murphey is a firm dedicated to pursuing justice for anyone injured through no fault of their own in a Florida boating accident. Whether you were injured on a cruise, on a speedboat that your friend wasn’t experienced enough to handle, or on any other type of boat for any reason, you shouldn’t be the one to pay the price.

Contact Our Fort Lauderdale Boating Accident Lawyers Today

You can’t afford to wait to contact a lawyer after you’re injured in a boating accident. Under maritime law, the statute of limitations is three years for injuries that occurred on most vessels, but only one year for cruise ship injuries. If you suffer silently for longer than that amount of time and then decide you want to take legal action, there’s not much you can do.

That’s why it’s important that you talk to the experienced Fort Lauderdale Boating Accident Lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey as soon as you can after being in any kind of boating accident. We’ll go over the details of your case with you in your free initial consultation and let you know what steps we would need to take to get you the compensation you deserve.

It’s easy to reach out to us. You can call us any time or fill out our convenient online contact form.
