Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Successful Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Representation Since 1989

Injured individuals count on us to defend their rights when they are injured in a vehicle accident, by a negligent doctor or on the job. We at Legler Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, are dedicated to representing the injured throughout Bradenton, Sarasota and the surrounding communities.

We are a well-established firm specializing in the areas of personal injury, medical malpractice and workers’ compensation. We aggressively serve the needs of our clients against insurance companies and employers. We have provided effective legal representation to injured individuals in Manatee and Sarasota counties since 1989.

Our Bradenton, Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Venice personal injury attorneys have nearly 100 combined years of practice experience.

Our lawyers understand the specific needs of all injured individuals, including construction workers, health care workers, restaurant, hotel and service industry workers, and persons injured due to car accidents or other incidents involving injuries caused as a result of negligence. We help our clients deal with a full range of injuries, while assisting them with obtaining the medical benefits, wage loss benefits, disability benefits, death benefits, and funds that they are entitled to.

Unlike many other injury firms, we do not hesitate to litigate to get our clients the compensation they deserve.

When you work with Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, you can expect the following:

  • 100% attorney involvement: From the initial consultation to the end of the case, our lawyers are hands-on and involved in the details of every case.
    • And unlike some firms who won’t litigate on behalf of their clients, we will handle your case all the way from pre-suit to litigation and are not afraid to take your case to trial.
    • The high level of attorney involvement we practice at the firm maximizes the value of your case, which ultimately means more money for you when your case resolves.
  • Individualized, personal attention: Our Firm is well-established and has been serving the needs of the injured in our community for over 35 years.
    • We have the resources to provide the focus and personal attention our clients deserve.
  • Accessibility: We are there for our clients when they need us and will return all of your calls within a prompt and reasonable time.

  • Passionate: We love what we do — our entire team of lawyers and staff members are motivated and experienced at helping those who are injured. We are collectively fulfilled by helping our clients obtain the best results possible. In addition to the Firm’s attorney experience in the field of injury, many of our staff members have exclusively worked in assisting the injured as well and are dedicated to that cause.
  • Community-focused: We are proud to assist the injured throughout our area. Our lawyers are active in giving back to the community in which we live and work. You will often see us out at community events and involved in support of local charities and organizations which enrich the youth and families of our community.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I highly recommend Mr. Murphy. He immediately responded to the issues I was having with my workers compensation case. He reached out to me in a timely manner. I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
