At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our personal injury lawyers provide legal representation to residents of Tamarac by aggressively pursuing compensation for those who have been involved in an accident at the hands of a careless or negligent party. Personal injuries can have an extremely deleterious effect on one’s life. Whether you have suffered a brain injury, become a victim of medical malpractice, or sustained a trip and fall injury, our personal injury attorneys are ready to take strong action on your behalf and represent your best interests when insurance companies, medical professionals, or others have harmed you.
The lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey represent the interests of clients who have suffered injury or damages in a car or motorcycle accident, who have a wrongful death claim due to the accidental death of a loved one caused by the negligence of someone else, bad faith insurance claims, professional malpractice, maritime law, and other cases related to injury law. Many injury lawyers would rather accelerate the processing of claims because quantity is good for profits. Firms such as these are more likely to settle cases for less than their clients deserve rather than go to trial. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, rushing through cases is not our practice.
The lawyers at our law firm will seek full compensation for any and all loss you have experienced, even if that means standing up to rich corporate insurance lawyers in court. We have the experience and the persistence to actively seek the financial compensation our clients deserve.
When the amount your insurance company offers to settle is so low that it does not even cover basic losses, we at Lawlor, White & Murphey understand your frustration. Frankly, insurance companies always have an eye on profits, and if they can get away with giving you less for your claim, they will more than likely do so. If they can reject it and make it stick, that is their best possible scenario.
It is our firm belief, however, that if you have been injured through no fault of your own, you have a right to be justly compensated from the negligent party. Insurance adjusters who put claims in a perpetual limbo of review, who try to strong arm victims into settling, and who offer less than what is legally due need to be confronted, and we at Lawlor, White & Murphey in Tamarac are happy to do so. We have a reputation for aggressively pursuing full compensation for claims, and many insurance companies begin to seek fair settlements after finding out one of our lawyers is on the case. Not only do we have a reputation of integrity and persistence, but we have the experience and the perseverance to actively pursue the best interests of our clients.
It’s possible to sustain serious, permanent, and excruciatingly painful injuries when you trip and fall. On dangerous outdoor play areas, kids have been known to experience severe injuries, even death, due to the negligence of property owners. The elderly and disabled are especially susceptible to being hurt badly when they slip and fall due to slick floors, obstacles, and other hazardous conditions.
A typical response to an injury sustained on someone else’s property due to their carelessness is that the property owner did not know about the unsafe condition. Ignorance, however, is an aspect of negligence. The failure of property owners to know about the dangerous conditions on their own property makes them just as liable as if they knew about a hazard and did nothing to resolve it or warn others. It can sometimes be hard to prove that poor conditions and no warnings existed when an incident occurs. A property owner, for example, can put up signage after the accident and claim it was there previously.
Video can support claims more readily, and finding out if any video of an accident is available can be extremely beneficial to a claimant. But absent that, many injured parties need the expertise of an attorney to stick up for their rights. Our forceful premises liability lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey in Tamarac know how to get to the bottom of things and can find out ways of determining liability and pursuing justice even when property owners are not forthcoming.
Automobile accidents can lead to a whole host of difficulties, including incapacitating injuries, as well as excruciating pain and suffering, and can result in property damage that costs an exorbitant amount of money to repair or replace. A moment of reckless cell phone activity or inattention for some other reason can totally alter the direction of a victim’s life forever. Intoxicated drivers destroy families when others are permanently disabled or killed as a result of their carelessness. Inattention on the highway can make driving feel like a dangerous undertaking. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our desire is that victims of car accidents who have suffered injuries and acquired property damages through no fault of their own would be compensated fully for all losses, and we will take the insurance companies to trial on your behalf should they refuse to cooperate.
Wrongful death claims are certainly not impossible to win, though they can sometimes be difficult to prove. Some of the issues that make medical malpractice claims, for instance, difficult to prove include verifying the conditions in which the incident leading to injury happened. In many situations, there may be more than one party at fault, and when the result is wrongful death, the only person that may know the whole story is the only one who cannot speak to tell it. Being able to prove that someone else is both liable and at fault in a wrongful death incident is only the beginning of the process.
The second part is evaluating damages, which can include future earnings from which survivors would have benefited, benefits that have been lost to survivors due to the death, compensation for pain and suffering, funeral costs and medical expenses, and in some cases, punitive damages can also be sought. These contingencies should not discourage individuals whose loved ones are victims of wrongful death.
The law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey has a vast amount of knowledge and experience in pursuing wrongful death cases. We also have the resources and the passion needed to establish liability and prove fault, as well as to correctly identify damages. As successful and aggressive 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 forceful, and we have the verdicts and settlements to prove it.
The reason people buy insurance is obvious. We buy home insurance in order to protect ourselves from financial loss should a hurricane strike or should property damage occur due to flooding, tornado, fire, or other natural disasters beyond our control. When repairs have to be made and things need to be replaced to recover fully from an “act of God,” we rely upon our insurance policies to compensate us for losses. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not often see their part in the agreement as happily as we do when we become victims of tragedy.
This is because insurance companies are for-profit corporations in which the bottom line is really the most important objective. They want to take the least risk possible in order to maximize profits, and when tragedy does strike, unfortunately, many adjusters are so oriented toward their corporate goal (for a variety of reasons) that they will do almost anything to attempt to deny your claim, or give you the least amount of financial compensation possible, often not even enough to cover basic losses. The law firm of Lawlor, White & Murphey has years of experience in Tamarac dealing with insurance companies and the subtle methods used by insurance adjusters to pay you as little as they possibly can. We look forward to pursuing full compensation on your claims when you have been devastated by a hurricane or other natural disaster.
Bad faith occurs when your insurance company delays the processing of a claim in an effort to force you to accept terms that are not in your best interests, such as agreeing to much less than what you deserve for compensation on a claim. When it can be shown that an insurance adjuster is operating in bad faith and not seeking to process your claim fairly and with your best interests in mind, a trial lawyer in Tamarac from Lawlor, White & Murphey can sue for additional damages on top of any compensation you deserve on your initial injury claim.
The attorneys from Lawlor, White & Murphey are not afraid to seek the full amount of compensation you legally deserve on bad faith claims. Our injury lawyers in Tamarac aggressively pursue cases related to bad faith and receive additional compensation for our clients.
There are numerous ways in which an individual can sustain a brain injury in an accident due to the negligence of someone else. Traffic accidents, slip and fall injuries, incidences of medical malpractice, and several other scenarios provide examples of how brain injuries can occur. Unlike other kinds of debilitating injuries, however, damage to the brain (as well as other parts of the nervous system) can have extreme results in terms of disabling victims who suffer from them.
Fatalities, coma, loss of previous cognition, loss of memory, blindness, deafness, improper functioning of various parts of the body, neurological conditions, and other deleterious effects can occur on the physical level. Often, a brain injury means loss of work and loss of earnings as well, which can also mean loss of benefits and ensuing financial difficulties. The injury lawyers at Lawlor, White & Murphey are empathetic toward those who are suffering from brain injuries, whether they are the victims themselves or family members and friends. We will work with our clients to actively pursue justice in cases where brain injuries are the result of accidents that were caused by the negligence of others.
Circumstances surrounding personal injuries can be more complicated than we often feel they should be, and the same truism goes for the law, as well. If you have been injured through no fault of your own, our Tamarac personal injury lawyers can help you to navigate through these complexities and come to resolution.
