As trial personal injury lawyers, the law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey is devoted to helping the residents of Deerfield Beach by being willing to take injury cases to trial – whether they involve a car accident, wrongful death claims, bad faith insurance claims, professional malpractice, maritime law, or other cases related to injury law. Many injury lawyers would rather expedite cases in order to do more and make more of a profit, and therefore are more likely to settle cases rather than go to trial. In many instances, these cases are settled for amounts that are far less than what their clients are rightfully due. That is not our practice.
Our Deerfield Beach personal injury trial lawyers will seek full compensation for any and all loss you have experienced through no fault of your own, even if that means standing toe-to-toe with rich corporate insurance lawyers who are out minimize expenditures and protect profits. We have the experience and the persistence to actively obtain the financial compensation our clients deserve.
The law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey are not your typical large injury lawyers. Too often, large law firms take a production line approach to law, and not necessarily intentionally, they treat clients in a machine-like manner, especially when cases are not high profile or do not involve millions of dollars.
Although the Deerfield Beach trial lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey have all the resources of a large law firm, we treat every client who comes through our 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 through no fault of their own, especially when their suffering is exacerbated by insurance companies that refuse to pay just compensation. It doesn’t matter if you are rich or of more modest means, we treat our clients with respect as we vigorously seek the compensation each case deserves.
People can become severely injured due to trip and fall accidents, often depending on age, but circumstances surrounding the incident are also a determining factor. On unsafe playgrounds, children have been known to experience concussions, or even fatalities, due to the negligence of property owners. Elderly or disabled people who have slipped on slick floors that have no warnings or signage have broken ribs, displaced hips, and severely injured themselves through no fault of their own.
Although it is stock footage in some forms of comedy, falling down is no laughing matter, especially when the outcome is pain, suffering, and thousands of dollars in medical and rehabilitation bills. One of the most common excuses offered by property owners is that they were uninformed about the unsafe condition. According to the law, however, ignorance is no excuse, and not knowing about hazards on one’s own property is a form of negligence. In some cases, slip and fall cases could become a matter of contrary verbal claims – the victim telling the truth about the incident, and the owner claiming that the victim is just trying to profit from an intentional fall.
Fortunately, with the prevalence of cameras in today’s world, these kinds of disagreements are fewer since video evidence can support a victim’s claim more readily. But absent that, many injured parties need the expertise of an attorney to stick up for their rights. 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.
Have you ever had the strange and ultimately frustrating experienced of being given the runaround? This happens often when you call a huge corporation with a problem or concern, and your call gets transferred a dozen times before someone says they can address your problem – then you get disconnected.
If you are familiar with this kind of runaround, then you will know what it is like to file a property damage claim with most overgrown insurance companies.
While they generally don’t practice this type of phone play, they do practice tactics that amount to the same thing, one of which is being really nice and personable as they seek to deny your claim, give you less compensation on your damaged property than you actually deserve, or prolong a settlement in order to get you to break down and accept anything they have to offer. If you are tired of being given the runaround by insurance adjusters, let the trial lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey represent you.
Many insurance companies realize that our seasoned lawyers mean business and settle for a fair compensation without having to go to trial. Property destroyed by natural disasters can be a huge hindrance. Our Deerfield Beach lawyers can help the process to be expedited in your behalf.
Car crashes can lead to fatalities, debilitating injuries, long seasons of pain and suffering, and create thousands of dollars of property damage. A moment of irresponsible texting on a cell phone can change people’s lives for the worse. A drunk driver can end young lives. Negligence on the road can make driving feel like an unsafe experience, no matter how fast or slow you are going. 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 we are willing to go to trial if the situation demands it.
Brain injuries that happen because of any kind of accident, whether in a motor vehicle, a boat, or while at the workplace, not only results in diminishing one’s quality of life, but they can become incredibly expensive in terms of medical costs alone.

Wrongful death claims are often tough and knotty, but certainly not impossible to win. Medical malpractice claims, in particular, can be hard and take a long time to prove. 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 parties at fault. The victim can even be seen as contributing to liability in some measure. Proving liability and fault is only the beginning.
The next part of the battle is seeking to establish damages, which may include future earnings and benefits lost, as well as, in some cases, punitive damages. The struggle should not deter individuals who have loved ones who are victims of wrongful death. The Deerfield Beach law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey has an enormous amount of experience, the resources and the passion 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.
It may be hard to believe in some situations that it is illegal for insurance companies not to proceed with your best interests as motivating factors, and to be operating in good faith to settle your injury claim in a timely and judicious manner. Certainly most adjusters are interested in settling cases, but they wish to do so on their terms, not those of the victim; and their terms usually involve offering lower paying settlements. Insurance is a profit-oriented industry, which motivates many who work for insurance companies to put profit above people and will give the barest minimal amount possible in compensation to injury victims if they can get away with it.
They will also often initially deny claims, forcing them to go to appeal before they can be appropriately processed. If these kinds of practices can be proven, it is known as bad faith, and the Deerfield Beach attorneys from Lawlor, White & Murphey are not afraid to pursue additional compensation in bad faith insurance claims. The right lawyer can not only expedite current claims that have been in review for an inordinate amount of time, but also pursue further compensation from the insurance company itself for operating in bad faith. Our injury lawyers in Deerfield Beach aggressively pursue cases related to bad faith and receive additional compensation for our clients.
