West Palm Beach Car Accident Lawyers

Seasoned Car Accident Lawyers Advocate for Injured Clients in West Palm Beach and Throughout South Florida

If you have been injured in a car accident, you know that a car accident can occur in the blink of an eye—and, in many cases, you may not even have a clear sense of what happened to cause the accident. You may know that you were driving carefully, and feel frustrated that someone else’s failure to exercise appropriate caution caused you to suffer the consequences.

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our experienced car accident lawyers have been helping West Palm Beach accident victims recover financial compensation for their injuries for decades. We are known for tenaciously advocating on behalf of our injured clients, especially in the face of insurance adjusters who may immediately begin giving you the runaround with respect to recovering the compensation that you rightly deserve. The unfortunate fact is that many car accident victims choose to settle for a compensation award that does not fully account for the costs of the accident, and insurance companies count on this fact in formulating their initial settlement offers—they know that most people would rather settle quickly than fight to reach a fair settlement. This is where our lawyers come in to advocate on your behalf with the insurance companies and defense attorneys so that you get the compensation you need to recover.

We Handle All Types of Car Accident Cases to Help West Palm Beach and South Florida Victims

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we have experience handling all different types of car accidents, from the simple to the very complex, including:

Post-Accident Action Steps for West Palm Beach Car Accident Victims

The time immediately following a car accident can race by, and is usually filled with heightened emotions and stress. If possible, try to remain calm if you have just been involved in a car accident and, if you have not sustained serious injuries, try to:

  • Contact the police and file a formal accident report, which can help support your claim for compensation at a later date,
  • Make sure no one else requires immediate medical attention,
  • Use your smartphone to take photos or videos of the accident scene, vehicles, and any injuries,
  • Obtain contact information of any eyewitnesses,
  • Obtain the other party’s insurance and contact information (you can also use your smartphone to take photos of the insurance card and registration information),
  • Call an experienced car accident lawyer who can begin investigating your case immediately,
  • Seek medical attention (even if you were not severely injured, see a doctor within 14 days of the accident to preserve your rights to compensation).

At Lawlor, White & Murphey, we know that accidents happen quickly, and for a variety of reasons. We have successfully represented clients who were injured in car accidents that occurred because of:

  • Distracted driving,
  • Drunk or drugged driving,
  • Failure to check blind spots,
  • Traffic violations, such as speeding or running a red light,
  • Driver aggression,
  • Mechanical failures in the vehicle,
  • Hazardous weather or road conditions,
  • Defects in the vehicle components,
  • And more.

About West Palm Beach, FL

West Palm Beach is the county seat of Palm Beach County, Florida, and is known for its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, golf courses and year-round temperate weather. West Palm Beach is also the oldest municipality in the Miami area and was actually incorporated two years before Miami, in 1894. While West Palm Beach is a thriving modern tourist hub, it is also home to many historic neighborhoods, including the Bel Air Historic District.

Frequently Asked Questions About West Palm Beach Car Accidents

FAQ: How much will my car accident case cost if I want to fight for compensation?

Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, which means that you will incur no upfront costs. You will only pay if and when we recover compensation in your case.

FAQ: Why should I seek medical attention after an accident when I don’t seem to be injured?

Florida law requires that you obtain a medical opinion as to the injuries caused by your accident within 14 days of the accident. This preserves your right to compensation under personal injury protection (PIP) coverage and otherwise, and is designed to make sure that you are only compensated for injuries actually sustained in the accident (in other words, Florida is seeking to minimize the occurrence of cases where an accident victim is injured in some other way after the accident and looks to blame that injury on the accident). Apart from this, it is important to always remember that some injuries may not appear immediately, and the sooner you get medical attention, the more likely it is that you will successfully recover.
