Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey – Premier Personal Injury and Accident Attorneys in Ft. Lauderdale
At Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey, our job as personal injury lawyers is clear: We pursue justice on behalf of those who have been harmed or have suffered some injustice at the hands of others. Our personal injury lawyers are also trial lawyers—that means we are unafraid to go toe-to-toe against large corporations, insurance companies, or individuals who have brought harm to our clients. Usually, when we meet a new injury client, that injury or injustice has come about as a direct result of the negligence or recklessness of another party or parties, and when that happens, our team of Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys get to work to help them obtain the financial compensation that they deserve.
Our personal injury attorneys in Fort Lauderdale serve and represent those who have been injured due to auto accidents and other motor vehicle accidents, premises liability (which includes slip and fall accidents and negligent security), dangerous and defective products, professional malpractice, cruise ship accidents, wrongful death, as well as financial harm caused by the denial of legitimate insurance claims.

You Need an Auto Accident Lawyer Who Will Take Your Case All the Way
In the state of Florida, approximately 700 car accidents occur daily. For motorcyclists, the statistics are not much better—in 2010, nearly 300 motorcycle riders died on Florida roads in only nine months. The largest portion of motor vehicle accidents happen in Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Most of us trust that when we have been injured in an auto accident or motorcycle accident, the insurance companies will cover our personal or property damages fairly and sufficiently; however, that is not always the case. Often, Fort Lauderdale accident victims experience inordinate difficulty getting the compensation to which they are entitled and must therefore rely upon an auto accident lawyer in Fort Lauderdale to either negotiate or litigate on their behalf. On that note, we offer a word of caution: Not all accident and injury attorneys wish to go to trial; instead, they will agree to a settlement, regardless of whether or not it is in your best interests. Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey is not one of those firms. If going to trial is the best course of action to secure the compensation our clients deserve, then that is exactly what we will do.
If You Slip and Fall Due to Property Owner Negligence, Time is of the Essence for Monetary Recovery
Our history of representing accident victims has resulted in significant recoveries on behalf of our clients. When you are injured in a premises liability accident, more often known as "slip and fall," call a Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer at Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey as soon as possible so that we may learn from you what happened, and then take prompt action to investigate the cause of your accident and injuries. For instance, if a damaged floor caused you to fall, it's important to photograph the state of the floor before the owner or property manager has had time to repair it. The sooner we act, the more evidence we can gather and document, and once that is done, we will pursue every avenue available in order to hold the responsible parties accountable.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed after you've been involved in an accident that has caused significant injury or loss. Let your accident lawyer step up and help you. You do not have to be in this alone. If you have been injured in any kind of accident, your personal injury lawyer in Fort Lauderdale will guide you and look out for you through every aspect of the case.
Malpractice: When You Have Been Harmed by a Doctor, Lawyer, or Other Licensed Ft. Lauderdale Professional
Usually, when the term "malpractice" is used, people tend to think in terms of harm caused by a medical professional. While this is accurate, other professionals may also perform their duties in such a way as to cause injury or damages to their clients. Physicians, pharmacists, dentists, lawyers, accountants, and other licensed professionals who have a code of ethics and standards to adhere to. If you have suffered injury at the hands of such a professional, then it's likely that your injury or damage is substantial to you, and the professional holds an unfair advantage over you, thanks to their advanced education and knowledge in their field, which most of us simply do not have. How can you take a doctor to task for an injury that doesn't ring right with you when they offer an authoritative explanation that seems to explain it all away? How do you know if they're telling you the truth? Having an experienced and qualified injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale is essential as you pursue the compensatory damages that you are due. Your personal injury lawyer will investigate all aspects of your case to determine if negligence, errors, and failures have occurred. Your Fort Lauderdale injury attorney will make sure that every means of injury has been investigated and all potential compensation has been sought.
