Let Our Experience Guide You

When you or a loved one has severe injuries following a car crash, motorcycle collision, commercial trucking wreck, railroad crossing accident, dog bite or slip-and-fall incident, you may not know where to turn for help. In the midst of working to recover emotionally and physically from an accident, you may be facing the overwhelming task of negotiating with the negligent party or their insurance company as you seek restitution to cover your medical expenses, lost and future wages, and rehabilitation costs. In some cases, you may be able to seek compensation for your pain and suffering, although there are limits on the amount that the courts will allow for pain and suffering. Proving the other party’s negligence is pivotal to the success of your claim. It is a multifaceted, complex process that is best approached with the assistance of an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Our team at Murphy, Collins & McGill, PLC, is comprised of highly skilled attorneys who have been negotiating and litigating personal injury claims and workers’ compensation cases for decades. We can help you understand your legal options and develop a strategy tailored to recovering the maximum compensation for your circumstances. We are prepared to step in and cut through the red tape that’s preventing you from receiving payment.
