Review Thadd Llaurado

About Me

My name is Thadd Llaurado and I am a partner with the firm of Murphy & Prachthauser. I have been with the firm for over 29 years and my practice focuses primarily on serious personal injury cases.  Over the past 29 years, I have tried and settled numerous serious personal injury cases caused by defective products, automobile accidents, trucking accidents, construction accidents, bicycle accidents, and other forms of negligent conduct.  Moreover, I have also litigated numerous automobile crashworthiness cases, including cases involving roof crush, defective airbags, and defective seatbelts.  Further, I have handled cases in Wisconsin as well as in Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah 

Judges, Doctors and other Lawyers have referred their family and friends to me to handle and prosecute their personal injury cases. Integrity, trustworthiness and hard work describe who I am.  My clients trust me and value my work on their case including how I explain things in an uncomplicated and easy fashion so they can understand and make decisions for themselves and their family.

I take great pride in my client's satisfaction.  A serious injury to a person not only affects them but also their family.  Their life is often times turned upside down in taking care of themselves and trying to get their life back on track.  Our office helps with guiding the injured person and their family during this uncertain and tough time and obtaining the best result possible whether through a successful settlement or a trial.
