What It Means To Be a Lawlor Winston Trial Lawyer
When talking with South Florida personal injury attorneys, it’s important to understand that not all law firms are created equal. Although some attorneys refer to themselves as trial lawyers, they may only win you a small settlement that can’t truly cover the cost of your injuries. Why? Because they want to avoid going to trial.
Lawlor Winston is different. We’ll discuss the details of your case with you to help you determine your smartest course of action, and if we believe that taking your case to trial will get the best results for you, then that’s what we’ll do. We have an excellent track record going up against individuals, large corporations, and insurance companies. When working with us, you’ll find that our lawyers and case managers have the practical experience, resources, and compassion to handle your personal injury case.
Get the Compensation You Need in a Motor Vehicle Accident
With nearly 700 car accidents and 300 motorcycle accidents occurring daily in the Sunshine State, it seems like we’d have a better system set up to compensate these accident victims. Florida’s current personal injury protection (PIP) system is supposed to ensure that victims of motor vehicle accidents can afford the medical treatment they need to recover from their injuries, but often this form of compensation falls short of the real expenses.
Often, accident victims experience inordinate difficulty getting the compensation to which they are entitled and must therefore rely upon an auto accident lawyer to either negotiate or litigate on their behalf. Whether you suffer a car, truck, motorcycle, or even a pedestrian accident, Lawlor Winston can help you take on the reckless or negligent driver who injured you.
Hurt Due to Property Owner Negligence? Time is of the Essence
When you’re injured because a property owner failed to keep their premises safe, it’s important that you seek medical attention but also document the accident as soon as possible. In premises liability cases, you need to be able to prove that the property owner failed to maintain a safe environment to the extent that a reasonable person should and that your injury was caused as a result of their negligence.
For example, if you slipped, fell, and broke your leg because a stair railing came loose in a rented home, you would need to photograph the railing where it came away from the wall. Of course, you shouldn’t have to gather evidence and shoulder the burden of proof alone. Contact Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey as soon as possible so that we can help you gather evidence and pursue every available avenue to hold the responsible parties accountable.
Speak Out against Medical and Professional Malpractice
You’ve probably heard the term “medical malpractice” before, but you may not have realized that other professionals can be involved in a malpractice case. Professionals such as pharmacists, dentists, lawyers, accountants, and architects all have a code of ethics and standards to adhere to, and if their failure to do so results in a serious injury or financial setback to their patient or client, they need to be held accountable.
Unfortunately, many people are intimidated by the idea of accusing someone who is an authority in their field of making a mistake, or by the thought of taking on a big organization like a hospital. While it may be daunting, it’s important that victims of malpractice speak out, both to get the compensation they deserve and to draw attention to an issue so that no one else has to suffer the same kind of injury. Our experienced injury attorneys can help you stand up to professional and medical malpractice by carefully investigating all areas of your case and pursuing all potential compensation.
Brain Injuries Require Compassion and Professional Representation
When you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, you can rest assured that the entire Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey team is committed to you and your case. Your Fort Lauderdale injury lawyer will work with your medical team to ensure that you receive the best care possible while we pursue your case.
If your recovery might be enhanced by further evaluations, you attorney will see that those tests are performed. When your insurance company needs more detailed medical reports, we will work with your doctor to see to it that those reports are what the insurance adjuster needs in order to pay your claim. Whatever the medical necessity, your Lawlor Winston personal injury team has the experience and knowledge necessary to work with both medical professionals and insurance examiners so that you can get the compensation and care you deserve.
Maritime Law Is Complex – Choose Accident Lawyers with Experience
Many Floridians love spending time around the water, but few realize that there’s a unique set of laws governing accidents that occur in or near the ocean and other channels. That means that if you suffer an injury on a cruise ship or other type of boat, you have a potentially complex maritime law case on your hands. Don’t attempt to handle this case on your own – turn to a personal injury attorney who knows how to navigate both Florida state regulations and admirality law.
With more than 40 years of experience in maritime litigation, Lawlor, Winston, White & Murphey can help you make sense of your case and prove that you deserve to be compensated.
Wrongful Death Lawyers – Recovering What Losses You Can
If you are a surviving family member of a loved one who has died due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another, we recommend that you consult with an experienced and compassionate accident attorney in our Fort Lauderdale office to determine if you have a wrongful death claim. We know that this is a difficult time for you and that it’s hard to think about taking legal action while you’re grieving, but there are many reasons that a wrongful death claim can be the right thing to do.
In the aftermath of your loved one’s death, you may experience devastating emotional and financial losses, and while there’s no way to truly compensate you for the emotional pain, it’s only right that the responsible party should have to make up for your monetary loss. Filing a wrongful death claim and bringing the responsible party to justice may also help prevent this type of tragedy from befalling another Davie family. Call to speak with a Lawlor Winston accident attorney who has experience helping families through wrongful death claims.
