The law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey are not your typical large injury lawyers, who too often begin to treat clients in a mechanical manner, especially when cases are not high profile or do not involve millions of dollars. Although our Coconut Creek injury trial lawyers have all the resources of a large law firm, we treat every client who comes through their doors with the personal respect that might be more apparent at a small firm.
At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we share a passion for justice for everyone who is suffering loss due to injuries that are not their fault, especially when their suffering is exacerbated by insurance companies that refuse to pay just compensation. It doesn’t matter if you are wealthy or of more modest means, we treat our clients with respect as we vigorously seek the compensation each deserves.
Whether you are suffering from the losses incurred from a wrongful death, a brain injury, medical malpractice or a trip and fall injury, our lawyers are eager to work diligently on your behalf and represent your best interests as advocates when insurance companies, medical professionals, and others seek to sell you short.
As trial injury lawyers, the law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey is dedicated to serving the residents of Coconut Creek by being willing to go to trial. Many injury lawyers prefer to settle cases outside of court, often for amounts that are far less than what their clients are rightfully due. That is not our practice. We will seek full compensation for any and all loss you have experienced through no fault of your own, even if that means going head to head against corporate insurance lawyers who are out minimize expenditures and protect profits. We have the experience and the tenacity to vigorously pursue the financial compensation our clients deserve.
Wrongful death claims are often problematic because they can be difficult to prove, especially if they are part of a medical malpractice claim. They can also be time-consuming. Some of the factors that add to the dilemma include the difficulty in verifying the circumstances in which the accident occurred (the victim, of course, cannot testify on his or her own behalf), and there may be multiple people at fault. The victim can even be seen as contributing to liability in some measure. Proving liability and fault is the first half of the battle; the other half is establishing damages, which may include future earnings and benefits lost, as well as, in some cases, punitive damages.
The struggle should not dissuade survivors, however, even if pursuing just compensation can be a laborious task. The Coconut Creek wrongful death lawyers of Lawlor, White & Murphey have a tremendous amount of experience and the resources that are needed to successfully prove fault and accurately identify damages. As battle-tested trial lawyers, we know all the ins and outs that are part of fighting large corporations and insurance companies, and we are willing to go to trial in the pursuit of just compensation. Our commitment to our clients is personal, passionate, and aggressive, and we have the verdicts and settlements to prove it.
Slipping and falling can end in a number of different outcomes. While one person may stand back up easily without any harm done, another might break bones, sustain head injuries, displace the hip, or suffer in numerous other ways requiring immediate medical attention and rehabilitation. Property owners will often claim that they did not know about hazardous conditions which led to a trip and fall accident, or that they provided signage and other warnings to visitors in order to prevent an accident from occurring.
According to the law, property owners are, in fact, responsible for knowing if there are hazardous conditions on their property, so claiming ignorance is no excuse; they are still usually liable. When it comes to appropriately warning you of poor conditions, if no other evidence is available, it can become a matter of your word against theirs. Trying to untangle the truth in these kinds of circumstances can be incredibly difficult, but not impossible. Our aggressive trial lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey have the experience to get down to the matter of the truth and pursue full compensation for losses incurred due to the negligence of property owners.
Hurricanes happen in Florida, so it’s wise to have hurricane insurance. But what good is having insurance if the company doesn’t pay on its claims? Insurance companies exist to make a profit and will often expend every effort in not paying your claim, or at least not paying the full amount in damages. Disputes over property value are one tactic used by many companies to try to justify paying you far less than what you lost, making reasonable recovery more difficult than it should be.
If an insurance company refuses to pay a property damage claim after a hurricane or other natural disaster for which you are covered, or if an adjuster offers to settle a claim for less than the claim is worth or denies a claim without adequate investigation, our attorneys can help protect your rights – at no cost to you. Our property damage lawyers will help to expedite settlement on your claim and pursue the full amount of compensation you deserve.
The car accident lawyers Lawlor, White and Murphey have years of experience identifying the causes of Florida car accidents, discovering liability, and proving fault. We take the task of holding those who are liable for injuries sustained by victims of car accidents seriously, and we are committed to pursuing the full amount of compensation available for our clients as allowable by law. Unfortunately, many insurance companies deny legitimate claims, causing people to have to endure an exhaustive appeals process, and then question the value of claims.
Their aim is to give accident victims as little compensation as possible, and their tactics often succeed at wearing people down to the point where they no longer care and are willing to accept anything they can get. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we want victims of car accidents who have suffered injuries and procured property damages through no fault of their own to be compensated fully for all losses, and we will take the insurance companies to task on your behalf when they refuse to do so. We will deal with both insurance adjusters for our clients, and are willing to go to trial if the situation demands it.
Brain injuries that occur due to an accident not only have their obvious deleterious effects on the quality of one’s life, but they can take a financial toll, as well. Lost pay, medical expenses related to surgery and/or rehabilitation, and significant changes to a victim’s lifestyle can result in crippling financial challenges. In Coconut Creek, our injury lawyers understand that you are suffering, and will do everything we can to make sure that you receive the compensation that you justly deserve. Proving that one has suffered from a brain injury to the negligence or capriciousness of another party, or multiple parties, can be a complicated and daunting task.
Our personal injury lawyers, however, will work with you to navigate the legal factors involved in pursuing such a case, whether you or your loved one are suffering from permanent disability or have been temporarily disabled. When it comes to finding a personal injury attorney capable of handling the magnitude of a brain injury case, South Florida accident victims turn to the experienced lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey.
When an accident happens on a boat or watercraft, the law differs from similar incidents that occur on land. The legal rights of passengers injured on cruise ships fall under the jurisdiction of Admiralty law (or maritime law) which is the distinct body of law governing navigation and shipping on domestic and international waterways. If an injury occurs on a cruise ship, there may be further stipulation with regard to reporting the injury and making a claim that, if not applied, can invalidate the right to make the claim.
An obvious example of this is the provision of a certain amount of time to make a claim or forfeit the right to do so altogether. Due to the complexity of maritime law, it is vital to seek the experience, counsel, and resources of the experienced injury trial lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey. Statistically, claims that occur due to maritime injuries, especially on cruise ships, move more in favor of the ship than the victim. A seasoned Coconut Creek maritime attorney from Lawlor, White & Murphey can make sure that justice is aggressively pursued when accidents happen, whether injuries are permanent or temporary, and regardless of how severe they might be.
Insurance companies are owned by large corporations that see profit as the primary motivating factor for doing business. Even though we all buy insurance and pay our premiums for the security of knowing that we will be compensated should an accident and injury occur, there is usually great resistance on the part of insurance adjusters to pay the full amount of any given claim.
The law, however, requires insurance companies to act in good faith to pay on all legitimate claims in a timely manner. When they do not do so, a bad faith claim can be made against them since they are contributing to the extent of your initial loss. Lawlor, White & Murphey attorneys in Coconut Creek can make sure that justice is pursued if you believe you are being avoided or given the “runaround” by your insurance company. We are happy to take vigorous action on your behalf to pursue the expedition of your initial claim, as well as to seek financial compensation on a bad faith claim on your behalf.
