While every auto accident is different, they all have the potential to create significant setbacks when victims suffer serious and preventable injuries. Having worked with numerous men, women, and families who come to us in their times of need, we know accidents can cause long-term and far-reaching consequences – physically, financially, and emotionally. As such, we’re committed to making the difference for accident victims and their loved ones, and helping them fight their legal battles every step of the way.

Here’s how we make the difference when it matters most:

  • Personalized support with a focus on communication
  • Results-driven representation – both in settlement negotiations and litigation
  • Contingency fees – no up-front costs and no fee unless a successful recovery is made
  • Extensive resources and professional connections with key experts
  • Services offered in English and Portuguese
  • FREE and confidential consultations

Auto Accident Cases We Handle

Backed by decades of collective experience, our attorneys have first-hand experience handling a range of auto accident cases, from minor fender benders to the most serious and devastating collisions. Our exclusive focus on representing the injured also provides invaluable insight required of difficult cases, including those where fault and liability are disputed by defendants or the powerful insurance companies that represent them.

Examples of auto accident case we handle include:

  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Distracted driving or texting accidents
  • Rear-end and head-on collisions
  • Intersection accidents
  • Truck, bus, and commercial vehicle crashes
  • Wrecks caused by negligent drivers, aggressive driving & traffic violations
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorists
  • Uber and Lyft accidents
  • Catastrophic injury accidents
  • Fatal accidents and wrongful death

Auto accidents are unique experiences, and the facts and circumstances they entail play a significant role in determining the trajectory of a personal injury case, the party (or parties) that can be held liable, and the scope of damages you seek to recover. Because our firm prioritizes close-working relationships with clients and values communication, we gain a clear understanding of your unique situation and how your accident impacted your life. This drives our investigations and legal work, and allows us to fight for the maximum compensation possible, even in cases involving challenges such as disputed liability, contributory negligence, and corporations or insurance companies that fight to protect their profits and pay victims as little as possible.

Tips After an Auto Accident

Because we know auto accidents make for frightening experiences, we want local victims to know the things they do and say can have an impact on any personal injury case they choose to file. While seeking the help of proven attorneys like those at Morgan & Murphy, LLP immediately after an accident can ensure you take the right steps, we also wanted to provide a brief list of tips to help you take an active role in protecting your own rights.

  • Call police, if you are able to do so. Law enforcement officers who arrive on scene can compile an accident report that can serve as important evidence in your case.
  • Gather information, and as much of it as possible. This includes contact information from all parties involved, as well as vehicle, license, and insurance information. Take photos of the scene, vehicles, visible injuries, and other important elements of the accident if you can.
  • Watch what you say, both at the scene and when insurance companies come calling. What you say can be used against you, even if your words are misinterpreted. This means avoiding apologies and discussions of fault, and focusing on everyone’s safety and gathering information instead.
  • Don’t trust insurance companies, they are not on your side. You do not have to make recorded statements and you do not have to accept initial lowball settlement offers. An attorney you hire can handle communications and negotiations with insurers on your behalf, and ensure you aren’t taken advantage of.
  • Get timely medical treatment, as it is important not only to your health, but also your case. Insurance companies will be quick to highlight any delays or lack of medical treatment when raising arguments that you weren’t really injured – even if you were in pain and suffering all along.
  • Call our firm. We’re here to help immediately from the time you reach out to us, guide you step-by-step through the process, and advocate for your right to full and fair compensation.
