In regards to auto accidents, it is important to determine who is at fault for causing the accident. The fault for an accident is proven by showing who acted negligently in causing the accident. Negligence is generally defined as the failure of an individual to use reasonable care. In the context of an auto accident, negligence can be proven in many ways, including

  • Careless driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Reckless driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Rear ending another driver /following too closely
  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey traffic signals or signs
  • Distracted driving

Though relatively common in the world of personal injury, auto accidents can be difficult cases to resolve. For one, many individuals are ill equipped to handle the presentation of their claim to the auto insurance carriers. Many of these cases involve complex issues involving applicability of insurance, evidentiary issues, and procedural laws that individuals do not understand. Furthermore, many Florida laws are specifically designed to further the interests of the insurance companies, not to help its citizens. Many of the laws are designed specifically to make it more difficult for individuals to navigate them. The general goal of such legislation is generally to satisfy one interest: to save insurance companies and big businesses money. Often times individuals handling such claims on their own find themselves in over their heads; dealing with unreasonable and exploitative claims adjusters and complex processes that are unfamiliar to them. Oftentimes, you will need an attorney to protect your interests to avoid being taken advantage of. In all of the years we have been in business, we have never represented any insurance company and we never will.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
