Practice Areas

Ben Murphey Offers a Diverse Range of Knowledge and Experience

When you need a personal injury attorney, you need to be sure you’re working with someone who has handled cases similar to your own. There are many different areas of personal injury law, and if you choose a lawyer who has only handled auto accident cases to take your premises liability case, you’re putting yourself at a disadvantage. Maritime law in particular can be complex, and if you have a cruise ship or boating accident case, you need to be sure you work with an attorney who is experienced in handling maritime claims in Florida.

Ben Murphey has experience representing people and businesses with a wide variety of injury, professional liability, and business disputes.  His diverse experience uniquely positions him to help people and businesses who have been harmed by others.  His practice areas include:

  • Cars are required by law to share the road with cyclists, yet some drivers do not seem to realize this.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a bike accident, whether it was caused by a driver, another cyclist, or even a dangerous section of road that lacked proper signage, contact Murphey Law.
