ERIC C. MORALES, ESQ.
Practice Areas: Personal Injury; Products Liability; Trucking Accident and Injuries; Automobile Accidents and Injuries; Motorcycle Accidents; Cruise Ship Injuries; Boating, Yachting, and Watercraft Accidents; Commercial Shipping Injuries under the Jones Act, Unseaworthiness, and Maintenance & Cure; Brain Injury; Wrongful Death; Premise Liability; Negligent Security; Slip and Fall Accidents
Eric C. Morales focuses his practice exclusively in plaintiff’s personal injury cases and maritime accidents. With a legal career spanning a decade Mr. Morales brings youth and technical integration into Freshman, Freshman & Morales. Mr. Morales began his career by focusing exclusively on plaintiff’s maritime injury cases. After several years he moved to a regional, and then a national defense law firm. In both of those positions he practiced products liability and general liability defense for large clients including Uber, Kmart, Sears, Outback Steakhouse, Knight Transportation, Hard Rock Café, John Crane, Weil-McLain, Stiles, Alliance Construction, Tortuga Music Festival, and Okeechobee Music Festival. His insurance clients included AIG, The Hartford, Iron Shore, Liberty Mutual, Nationwide, Progressive, Travelers, Chubb, Tokio Marine, Zurich, Allianz, Arch, United Fire & Casualty, and multiple underwriting syndicates out of the Lloyds of London amongst others.
In his experience working for both plaintiffs and defendants, Mr. Morales has gained unique knowledge over a broad array of cases that make him as adept at handling a slip and fall as a complex product liability claim with multiple parties. He is also an adept writer having authored numerous appellate briefs in both the state and federal appellate court system.
After forming his own practice in 2020 Mr. Morales quickly partnered with Freshman & Freshman, LLC to form Freshman, Freshman & Morales. With the over 60 years of combined experience the firm has extensive knowledge to bring any personal injury case to a fair and just conclusion through arbitration, mediation, trial or appeal if necessary.
