Oakland Park Personal Injury Lawyer
Broward County Injury Victims Need Someone on Their Side
When you or someone you love has been injured due to the negligence of another, your only responsibility should be to recover and move on with your life to the extent that you can. You shouldn’t be responsible for paying medical bills, covering property damages, or making up for lost wages when you were hurt through no fault of your own. Unfortunately, the individuals, insurance companies, and corporations that cause harm aren’t always willing to pay up, and the injured party may need to take legal action. That’s where a qualified Oakland Park personal injury lawyer from our firm can help.

Hold Your Insurance Company Accountable with a Trusted Oakland Park Personal Injury Lawyer from Lawlor, White & Murphey
Although it would be nice to think of insurance companies as charitable organizations, you have to remember that at the end of the day they’re a company with their bottom line in mind. Insurers don’t want to pay out any more than they have to, and this sometimes means claims that should be covered under their policies are delayed or outright denied. A number of insurers even have the audacity to claim that property damage was caused by something that wasn’t covered under their policy, like flooding after a hurricane rather than the hurricane itself.
Frustrating doesn’t begin to describe how this feels for policyholders especially if their home or business in Oakland Park has been severely damaged by a hurricane or other natural disaster. If you’ve been having trouble getting your insurance company to pay out after an event that’s clearly covered in your policy, contact a trusted Oakland Park personal injury lawyer at Lawlor, White & Murphey. We have the experience to help homeowners, business owners, restoration companies, public adjusters, and contractors when dealing with a bad faith insurance company.
If You’re in a Car Crash, PIP May Not Cover It
Florida is a “no-fault” state, meaning that if you’re ever in an auto accident, your medical expenses are supposed to be covered under Florida’s personal injury protection law (which all Florida drivers are required to pay for). While this sounds good in theory, in reality, many Floridians have discovered that PIP insurance doesn’t come close to covering their medical bills and lost wages.
Additionally, anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident has only a limited window of time in which their medical treatment can be covered, and certain beneficial forms of treatment like chiropractic care are not covered.
If PIP insurance isn’t enough to cover the extent of your injuries, contact Lawlor, White & Murphey. Each Oakland Park personal injury lawyer at our firm is experienced in motor vehicle accidents and can give you the legal counsel and help you need in order to navigate the complexities of personal injury law.
Landlords Have a Responsibility to their Tenants
If you rent a home or apartment, you’ve entered into a legal agreement with the building owner, and you’re both expected to hold up your ends of the agreement. One of the things a landlord is supposed to be responsible for is making sure that their rental units are safe for their tenants. When a tenant is injured because of something like a loose stair railing or bad electrical wiring that the landlord knew about but failed to repair, the tenant can sue for premises liability.
If you’re injured through no fault of your own on a rental property or in a public area like a mall, park, restaurant, hotel, or airport in or around Oakland Park, contact a qualified Oakland Park personal injury lawyer at Lawlor, White & Murphey. We’ll help you determine the proper legal course of action and make sure that a property owner’s negligence doesn’t result in the same type of injury for anyone else.
Make Sense of the Complexities of Maritime Law
Living in Oakland Park gives you plenty of opportunities to enjoy Florida’s waters, and since activities like boating and swimming in the ocean are so common around here, you may not have realized that there’s an entire set of laws governing personal injuries that occur in the ocean or other water channels. Maritime law governs everything from international shipping to accidents that occur on cruise ships, so if you were injured at sea, you’ll be dealing with this distinct and often confusing area of the law.
It’s important that you work with qualified maritime law attorneys who have handled these types of cases before. Lawlor, White & Murphey has over 40 years of experience with maritime and admiralty law, and we’d be happy to consult with you about your case.

Wrongful Death in Oakland Park? A Qualified Oakland Park Personal Injury Lawyer at Lawlor, White & Murphey Can Help
If you’re grieving the loss of a loved one, calling an attorney might not be the first thing on your mind. But if your loved one’s death was caused by the recklessness or carelessness of another person or organization, it’s important that you bring the responsible party to justice so that this kind of needless death won’t happen again.
Wrongful death can be caused by anything from a car accident to medical malpractice to excessive use of force from a police officer. The responsible party may in some situations face criminal charges, but this doesn’t necessarily help the surviving family members, who might be struggling with funeral and medical expenses, lost wages, and emotional pain.
At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we know that we can’t bring your loved one back, but we can help bring the responsible party to justice and get you the compensation you need to go on. Contact an Oakland Park personal injury lawyer today to get the professional and compassionate assistance you deserve.
