While driving home from work, an evening out, or after a long road trip, your mind is most likely miles away from any question about your safety. You are a careful driver and you assume that if you look after yourself and others on the road, others will do the same.
However, this is not always the case. Within moments, a collision can occur on the road and you may find yourself in the hospital having sustained a serious injury in a collision that was not your fault.
The injuries you sustain in a car crash may initially seem minor - perhaps it was referred to as a soft tissue injury - but such injuries may have long lasting effects or may be the cause of a lifetime of chronic pain. Maybe your injury is serious - neck or back injury, spinal cord injury, or closed head injury. No matter the type of injury, an auto accident attorney from our firm will meet with you - in our office, your home, or hospital - and discuss the specifics of your case. Together we can plan a course of action with the goal of helping you get the compensation you deserve.
At Murray & Murray, located in Sandusky, Ohio, our attorneys understand that you cannot always control what happens to you on the road, but that you can get the compensation you deserve. We are skilled negotiators and trial attorneys with the experience needed to protect your interests in negotiations, arbitration, and mediation, as well as in state and federal courts.

Boating accidents on Lake Erie and in other bodies of water often result in serious maritime injuries. Our attorneys represent victims of accidents resulting from recreational boating, commercial shipping and personal watercraft (including jet ski) usage on waterways.
Often, there is an element of alcohol use in boating accidents that cause catastrophic injuries. Dram shop liability may offer additional sources of compensation if a marina pub served an obviously inebriated boater beer or wine before a serious boating accident. Other factors that may have contributed to or caused a boating accident include lack of proper navigation lights on a boat or lack of training by a boater.
In our initial meeting, we will discuss your case and determine possible ways to find proper compensation for losses and injuries. For example, if the person who hit your boat was uninsured or underinsured, your own homeowner's policy may cover your accident. Contact a boating accident attorney at Murray & Murray today to discuss your or your family member's maritime injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Motorcyclists are often the victim of distracted drivers who fail to signal or look when changing lanes, fail to look both ways at stop signs and intersections, or fail to watch the road in front of them. Our personal injury attorneys represent injured motorcyclists facing expensive medical bills, lost wages, and months of recovery due to the negligence of a car or truck driver. Since insurance companies often try to blame motorcyclists for causing or contributing to a collision, our attorneys work with skid mark analysts, accident reconstructionists, and computer simulations when documenting the cause of an crash. We locate eyewitnesses and expose whether a driver was exceeding the speed limit, talking on a cell phone, intoxicated, or driving recklessly at the time of an accident.
Insurance companies use a software program called, "Colossus" to calculate damages. However, Colossus doesn't take into account a number of factors and which variables a claim adjuster decides to include affect the result. Our motorcycle accident attorneys work with economists, medical experts, and life care planners in determining the financial impact of a motorcycle crashes.
Using medical information and data associated with head trauma, disfigurement, and spinal cord injuries; we project the cost of medical care out over a number of months and years. We also look at how your injuries impact your earnings, whether you can expect to return to work at the same level prior to your injuries, and how your family is affected.
We know what it takes to investigate motorcycle wrecks and how to hold negligent drivers financially accountable for the injuries they cause. If you have questions about recovering damages for your accident, contact motorcycle crash attorneys at Murray & Murray today.
The Insurance Company Keeps Calling -- What Should I Do?
Insurance companies are interested in minimizing their losses in claims payments. Most insurers train claims adjusters in methods for reducing payouts to injury victims by settling claims early before the full impact of an injury is known. In order to protect your interests and right to pursue damages in the future, it is important to contact an attorney before talking to an insurance agent, signing any documents, or providing information to them.
Trucking Collision Attorneys
If you have driven along any Ohio highway for any length of time, you have likely encountered a collision involving a truck or tractor trailer. In the past, you probably thought little more of it than the delay it caused to your commute or road trip. You may have paused a moment as you slowly drove past the semi and noticed the severity of the accident, or perhaps you were surprised that the truck accident wasn’t as bad as you thought.
Little can prepare you for the experience of being on the other side – of being the cause of the traffic jam, of being the person trapped inside of the car that has been hit by the sleep deprived driver of the 18-wheeler, or of being the tractor-trailer driver who has been hit by another semi-tractor. Even more difficult, however, may be the overwhelming experience of having to fight to collect the compensation you are due for the resultant injury.
While our attorneys also handle auto accidents, we know that assisting clients who have been injured in a trucking collision calls for specific experience and knowledge. In a trucking collision, you are no longer simply dealing with another individual, but a company or numerous companies, each looking to limit its money loss or avoid responsibility altogether.
When you visit our Sandusky office to discuss your situation – or when we visit you in your home or hospital room – we will discuss the particulars of the wreck, the extent of your injuries, and the best way to get you the compensation you deserve. Our trucking litigation attorneys are skilled negotiators and trial attorneys, with the experience needed to protect your interests in negotiations and mediation, as well as in state and federal courts.
