Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Lawyer
Dedicated Lawyers Work Tirelessly to Safeguard Clients’ Right to Compensation in Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Lawsuits
Any accident can change your life in an instant—and because of the nature of accidents, even when you are exercising reasonable caution, you may be entirely unable to prevent the potentially devastating injuries that may result. As careful as you are, you cannot control the actions of others, and the unfortunate reality is that many people fail to exercise the degree of caution that would help keep everyone in our Pembroke Pines community safe.
Injuries are expensive on many different levels, and it is the person whose actions caused the injuries who should be held responsible for those expenses, as well as the pain and suffering and inconveniences that an injury inevitably will cause you to suffer. Our lawyers can help make sure that this happens and will fight to win the maximum compensation award possible in your case so that the negligent or reckless person who caused your injuries is brought to justice.
Florida Laws that Apply in Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Cases
Under Florida law, not every single injury can result in a personal injury lawsuit. Florida law in this area has developed in order to prevent frivolous and insignificant personal injury cases from clogging up the legal system—which would also make it more difficult for those suffering from serious injuries to recover just compensation for those injuries. To proceed with a personal injury lawsuit, Florida law requires that one of the following be true:
- The injury is reasonably anticipated to be permanent and causes a significant disability
- The injury results in permanent or significant loss of an important bodily function
- The injury results in significant scarring or disfigurement
- The injury results in death
In reality, accident victims in Pembroke Pines can usually proceed with a personal injury lawsuit with respect to most relatively severe injuries—a broken leg or wrist, whiplash and other injuries that will eventually heal are all significant enough to warrant compensation via a personal injury lawsuit. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we have put in the work necessary to gain the experience needed to successfully determine whether an injury is serious enough to warrant a claim for compensation via the legal system. In other cases, we can help our clients by negotiating with the relevant insurance companies in order to make sure they get the compensation to which they are justly entitled.

Frequently Asked Questions About Pembroke Pines, FL Personal Injury Cases
FAQ: Do I have to go to court in order to recover compensation in a personal injury case in Pembroke Pines?
No, and our lawyers have the skills necessary to understand how insurance companies work and can often obtain full compensation awards without incurring the expense of a lengthy trial. In some cases, the insurance companies and responsible parties may be less willing to pay a fair compensation award, and in these cases, we will be ready to fight for your rights in the courtroom. Other cases may be resolved through the mediation process, in which a neutral third party is involved in reaching a fair compensation award.
FAQ: My injuries will likely require that I miss work for an extended period, and I can’t afford to hire a personal injury lawyer. What should I do?
You might think that you can’t afford a personal injury lawyer, but you can. Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that our only payment is a portion of your compensation award—so you don’t have to pay us while we are representing you, and only pay us if we win. We can provide a more detailed explanation of how a contingency fee works, but Florida law limits the amount of our fee to a set percentage of your compensation, dependent upon how much we recover in your case.
