Cooper City Personal Injury Lawyers – Lawlor, White & Murphey Stand for Justice for Victims

The Cooper City personal injury trial lawyers of the law firm Lawlor, White & Murphey are not interested in trying to close as many cases as they can, even if it means avoiding going to trial at all costs, but they are united by a passion for pursuing justice when, all too often, large insurance companies and powerful corporations value profit more than people. There is no excuse for those who have been injured through the negligence or carelessness of other parties not to receive full compensation for their suffering, and our Cooper City trial lawyers are committed to aggressively pursuing the rights of those who have suffered injuries and loss, even if that means going to trial rather than settling for less.

As trial injury lawyers, the law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey is committed to protecting the rights of the residents of Cooper City by willingly going to trial when necessary in order to aggressively seek compensation for damages and loss in full. Other “trial lawyers” usually seek to close cases as soon as possible by settling out of court, often for far less than full coverage for damages and loss. Our lawyers handle several kinds of injury cases, including (but not limited to):

We have the experience and the tenacity to actively obtain the financial compensation our clients deserve.

A Law Firm Built to Help Cooper City Residents Who Have Been Injured

Lawlor, White & Murphey works towards getting the outcome clients need, which is why we have grown over the years. Unlike some law firms that may tend to treat clients impersonally, our lawyers personally invest themselves in the clients we represent, no matter what their circumstance. We have the feel of a small law firm, but our personal injury team has the resources and experience to go to court with the largest multi-conglomerate corporations if the situation merits it.

When you have been injured through no fault of your own, you want an injury lawyer to represent you who is experienced, knowledgeable, compassionate and aggressive, and who will go the extra mile in order to make sure that your rights are defended in court. Whether you have suffered loss due to a cruise ship accident, motorcycle accident, or are the victim of a slip and fall injury, our Cooper City injury law team will fight for you.

Our Cooper City Law Firm Holds Property Owners Accountable in Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases are also commonly referred to as cases that result in a “slip and fall injury” or “trip and fall injury.” These accidents occur when someone falls on someone’s property due to conditions that make it dangerous to walk – such as poor lighting, wet or slick surfaces, hidden obstacles, and uneven surfaces. Proving that a property owner is negligent and therefore liable because you tripped, fell, and injured yourself on their property can sometimes be difficult, depending on the situation. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we have a strong track record of representing slip and fall victims and obtaining a significant recovery on their behalf. Our seasoned law team has been handling premises liability claims for many years, and we have worked with almost every imaginable situation. We are well acquainted with the complexities of proving liability in a court of law, and can skillfully negotiate with the property owner and their insurance provider as representatives of your best interests rather than theirs.

Car Accidents Can Be Costly – Lawlor, White & Murphey Will Pursue Rightful Compensation

Due to the fact that you can be injured in a car accident for many different reasons, determining liability, damages and compensation can be a complex process. Several conditions factor into determining who is at fault and to what extent, in almost any accident. Some cases are more obvious than others, but the basic factors include driver negligence, road conditions, and automobile manufacturing flaws or defects. In more fortunate cases, the cause of an accident is straightforward, but getting full compensation from an insurance company is not. Some claims adjusters can draw out the process with various delays in an attempt to motivate individuals to settle for less than what they deserve. If you have been involved in an auto accident, our seasoned law team in Cooper City will assist you in navigating the details of the accident, your auto insurance policy, Florida’s No-Fault Insurance Laws, and any additional issues relating to uninsured or underinsured drivers. We also will help you deal with the insurance adjusters – both yours and the other driver’s.

Motorcycle Accidents Require Special Representation Due to Biases Against Motorcyclists

There is nothing quite like the feeling of freedom that can be found riding a motorcycle on the open Florida freeway, the smell and feel of the sea breezes, the road stretching gloriously before you. On the negative side, however, statistics show that Florida is also a dangerous place to ride a motorcycle due to the risk of being involved in an accident. In a period of nine months in 2010, for example, an average of one motorcyclist suffered a fatality per day in a nine-month period. Motorcycle accidents are also dangerous because of the vulnerability of the rider.

Those who survive bad motorcycle accidents often face years of recovery, as well as the possibility of permanent disability, loss of work and income, property damage, medical expenses, and rehabilitation expenses. The most common cause of motorcycle accidents is negligent drivers who claim that they simply did not see the motorcycle. The law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey in Cooper City specializes in motorcycle accidents, and assists riders in navigating the process of financial recovery and compensation from insurance companies that make it more difficult to get results in a timely manner. Receiving compensation for injury, pain, suffering, and other losses are possible through the representation of the seasoned, aggressive, and dedicated motorcycle injury lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey.

Lawlor, White & Murphey Wins Property Damage Insurance Claims

As Florida residents, we know what it is like to suffer from the sometimes devastating consequences of natural disasters, whether the loss is the result of a hurricane, tornado, flood or fire. Whatever kind of uncontrollable “act of God” that occurs, when you suffer property damage, you need to be compensated in a timely manner so that you can get on with your life. Unfortunately, many insurance companies draw out the process unnecessarily because they do not want to pay more than they have to – profit, not your suffering, is their bottom line. In cases where insurance claims are disputed, delayed, or are simply inadequate, our property damage lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey can take the process by the reins and make sure you get your just compensation. That’s what insurance is for, and you should not have to feel like you are pulling teeth for it to work for you. Our Cooper City attorneys take pleasure in advocating for clients whom we vigorously represent in property damage insurance claim cases, expediting the process and making sure you settle for the full amount you deserve.

Maritime Law is Complex and Highly Specialized—Choose Cooper City Maritime Lawyers with Experience

It’s an unfortunate fact that if you are injured on a cruise ship in a foreign country, or there is a wrongful death that occurs while at sea, insurance companies often favor the cruise line. Maritime laws introduce a level of complexity in insurance law and process that differs from what might happen while on land. Given that the laws are complex and even unfamiliar to most people, it’s vital that you have an experienced lawyer advocate for you in court in order to make sure that your side, and your rights, are fully represented. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our maritime attorney is a specialist in maritime law with more than 40 years of experience. Our maritime law team fully understands the intricacies of maritime and international law, and we have the resources to stand up for your rights when an accident, injury, or wrongful death occurs when you are at sea.

Cooper City Wrongful Death Lawyers – Compassionate and Aggressive Pursuit of Just Compensation

If you are the survivor of a wrongful death victim, you need an experienced and aggressive Cooper City lawyer to represent your rights that are lawfully granted by the state of Florida. You may seek compensation in court for losses incurred that affect you financially, as well as for those that do not. For instance, compensation may include immediate expenses that occur after the wrongful death, such as paying for any medical care that the deceased may have had prior to death, as well as funeral costs. You may also recover any earnings that you anticipated the deceased would have gained in the future up until the time of retirement or natural death. Loss of any benefits that you received that is caused by the victim’s death may also be compensated. In addition to these, you also may recover monetary compensation for pain and suffering, as well as mental anguish caused by the wrongful death. General damages, as well as punitive damages, may in some cases be applied, as well. Considering the rights that you have as the survivor of a wrongful death, suffice it to say that proving your case in court is a time-consuming and meticulous process due to the fact that insurance companies are not eager to pay. Our aggressive and experienced, knowledgeable attorneys can help you to navigate the process and pursue full compensation for all loss and damages that you have experienced due to the negligence or carelessness of others.

Bad Faith Policy Claims Can be Compensated in Court — Lawlor, White & Murphey Wins Cases

According to the State of Florida, you are entitled to all compensation for which you are due when you are properly insured and suffer loss or damages due to the negligence, carelessness, or capriciousness of others. The Florida Unfair Claims Practices Act (UFCA) entitles you to seek further compensation when it can be shown that insurance companies are not making a good faith effort to settle your claim. Too often, insurance adjusters fight claims and prolong processes hoping to exhaust your efforts for just compensation, usually so that you will agree to a settlement that is less than what you legally deserve. Our bad faith insurance lawyers can stand up to the high-profile corporate lawyers from the insurance companies and will eagerly represent you in trial (if necessary) in order to prove bad faith cases, obtain full compensation for your loss or injury, and pursue further damages for bad faith practiced by insurance company representatives.
