Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
At Murphy Law Firm, LLC, our practice areas include:
- Car Accidents
Every car accident and every individual injured in an auto accident is unique. Car accidents may be caused by the negligence on the part of another driver, a truck driver or trucking company, or a motorcyclist. If you or a family member has suffered as the result of a car accident, Murphy Law Firm, LLC can help you. We understand the devastation and problems that can occur as a result of being in a serious auto accident. We are committed to helping car accident victims recover the just and fair compensation they are entitled to receive under the law.
- Drunk Driving Accidents (DUI)
DUI accidents can result in serious consequences. In the United States, an average of one person dies due to a drunk driving accident every thirty minutes (NHTSA 2006). A driver who chooses to operate a vehicle while intoxicated puts other drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians at-risk on the roads. When we have clients who have been injured or lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents, we work to recover maximum compensation for their injuries or losses, medical bills, pain and suffering, vehicle damage, lost wages, and punitive damages.
- Motorcycle Accidents
Most accidents on the road, including motorcycle accidents, are caused by negligence. Not only are motorcyclists more likely to be involved in accidents than other drivers, but motorcycle accident victims often suffer serious, long-term, or even catastrophic injuries. If you or a family member has been injured in a motorcycle accident, we at Murphy Law Firm, LLC have experience with this type of claim and have the necessary skills to represent you.
- Semi-Truck Accidents
Semi-truck accidents can cause significant damage and serious injuries. These cases can be complex and you need an attorney who knows the tractor trailer accident laws. At Murphy Law Firm, we represent seriously injured victims of tractor trailer accidents, and the families of those fatally injured in tractor trailer accidents in Georgia. Having substantial experience with semi-truck accident claims and often trying these kinds of cases in court, the semi-truck accident attorneys at Murphy Law Firm have the skill and expertise necessary to help you.
- Texting and Driving Accidents
There are several distractions to keep Georgia drivers from focusing on the highway. Of course texting and driving in Georgia is illegal but difficult to enforce. In recent studies, distracted drivers are known to cause many accidents. Use of cell phones or other telecommunication devices is an increasing problem on Georgia roadways. If you have been injured by a driver who was talking on a cell phone or texting while driving at the time of the accident we can help you get justice for your case and financial compensation or your injuries.
- Bus, MARTA, & Taxi Accidents
Our law firm handles bus, taxi, Cobb Community Transit (CCT) and MARTA accidents in Georgia. If you or a family member has suffered as the result of a mass transit accident in Georgia, Atlanta bus accident attorney James Murphy and Murphy Law Firm in Douglasville can help you. We are committed to help injured bus and mass transit passengers recover the just and fair compensation they are entitled to receive under the law.
- Workers' Compensation
Georgia’s Workers' Compensation system can be very difficult to understand. It can provide income benefits, regardless of whether the injury was due to the employer’s negligence, the worker’s negligence, or the negligence of other employees. If you’ve been hurt at work in Douglasville and need an experienced firm to guide you through the system, you’ve come to the right place. At Murphy Law Firm, LLC, we bring over 20 years of experience to every case we handle. This experience helps us get you the speedy and fair recovery you deserve.
- Wrongful Death
When someone dies as a result of another person or entity’s negligence or recklessness (intentional or unintentional), a wrongful death claim may be filed. Whether the death occurs because of an automobile accident, workplace injury or medical malpractice, a claim for compensation may be a proper response of family members. If you have lost a loved one due to another’s negligence, Murphy Law Firm, LLC will consult with you for free regarding your case. We are experienced and well-prepared to seek your fair and just settlement and compensation.
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) & Nerve Damage
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 5.3 million Americans need long-term help performing daily activities due to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Affecting one’s thinking, language, emotions, and ability to feel, traumatic brain injury can lead to serious diseases. If you or a family member has suffered from traumatic brain injury caused by an accident or another party’s negligence, Georgia attorney James Murphy can assist you.
- Pedestrian Collisions & Bicycle Accidents
Murphy Law Firm, LLC is experienced in cases of pedestrian collisions, crosswalk accidents, and bicycle accidents. If you have suffered injuries or a loved one has been killed by a negligent automobile or truck driver, you may want to claim compensation for your case. A successful personal injury attorney will prove the serious nature of pedestrian and bicycle accidents, incidents that often result in permanent or catastrophic injury.
- Catastrophic Injuries
Unlike whiplash or fractured bones, serious and catastrophic injuries may last throughout the remainder of their victims’ lifetimes. Whether you suffer from a severe head injury, an amputated limb, or an injury that significantly affects your ability to function, your serious accident or catastrophic injury case will require more care when working toward a settlement to meet your needs. Serious injuries often inhibit brain and motor functions or physical ability in general, and experienced attorney James Murphy will ensure that you are fairly compensated.
- Spinal Cord Injuries (Whiplash)
In the United States, about 11,000 individuals per year suffer from spinal cord injuries. Though some sufferers of spinal cord injuries will experience complete (or nearly complete) recovery, others will face more serious and long-lasting effects, including paralysis. At Murphy Law Firm, LLC, we represent spinal cord injury victims and are dedicated to seeking fair and just compensation for their losses.
