We help people with car accident, wrongful death, and catastrophic personal injury insurance claims.

Our injury lawyers get a full settlement for you to recover financially from an accident or injury.

Our lawyers take charge of personal injury and wrongful death claims so that from the moment you hire us, you can stop worrying about medical bills, lost work, insurance adjusters, damaged vehicles, and future expenses. You can concentrate on recovering physically and emotionally; we concentrate on recovering financially.

It costs nothing up front to hire us; we get paid only when you get paid.

Our firm will receive a percentage of the settlement that we negotiate for you. There are no up-front costs, no hidden fees, and no out-of-pocket expenses. Statistics repeatedly show that a claim typically settles for more when it is negotiated by an experienced attorney, rather than by claimants themselves. Let the highly trained attorneys do for you what they do best - obtain the highest possible settlement that your claim is worth.

Need information on the insurance claim process?

If you have been in a car accident and are not injured but are looking for information on the insurance claim process, please see our Educational Video Library with helpful information on the claim process.

What types of cases does Brett Murphy handle?

We focus on major personal injury and wrongful death claims resulting from car accidents. For example,  watch the video of Hailey French, a Brett Murphy client who received a $5.5 million verdict against a drunk driver and two government agencies whose negligence resulted in a head-on car accident that nearly killed Hailey.

What will the Brett Murphy attorneys do for you?

After you have been seriously injured, imagine that you no longer have to worry about:

  • how to pay your growing medical bills;
  • how to keep money coming in while you recover;
  • how to deal with insurance adjusters who hassle you to sign a settlement agreement;
  • how to know what your claim is worth; and
  • how to get the full settlement you need to recover financially.

I just returned from the annual WSAJ convention in Skamania, Washington.  Amongst a vast number of interesting talks, the issue of “making the ask” for money from a jury came up several times.  In a discussion with a colleague during a break, we chatted about another instance where you have to make an ask – when you discuss claim value with your client for the first time. 

Brett Murphy attorney Paula McCandlis discusses her recent experience volunteering for the Street Law Program of Law Advocates.

Street Law is coordinated by Law Advocates, an extraordinary local non-profit organization that provides free legal help for low-income people and families facing non-criminal legal problems.
