Hornsby Law Group represents a family of Orlando personal injury attorneys who have been practicing personal injury law in Winter Park & Orlando for generations. The firm’s principal attorneys have nearly 50 years of legal experience between them helping people like you in Orlando, Winter Park and central Florida. If you have been injured on the job or harmed by another party’s negligence or misconduct, from auto accidents to insurance disputes or investment fraud, our lawyers are here to help. A considerable portion of our cases come through referrals from former clients who appreciate the care and concern we took with them as much as the excellent results we achieved on their behalf.

Numerous accidents and injuries occur on a daily basis in the Orlando area and across the state of Florida. For example, in a single year, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported that nearly 211,000 individuals sustained injuries in traffic-related collisions within our state. This statistic does not even take into consideration the many other types of accidents that cause injuries each and every day.
When you sustain a personal injury, you may experience significant pain and suffering, emotional trauma, and injury-related challenges. Your primary focus should be on your physical recovery and your stress should not be increased by financial concerns caused by medical bills and time missed from your job. At the Hornsby Law Group, our Winter Park personal injury lawyers seek financial compensation from any responsible parties on your behalf so that you can concentrate on your health and move on with your life.

Personal Injuries Can Be Severe
While some accident victims walk away with relatively minor cuts and bruises, many victims sustain serious or even catastrophic injuries. Injuries commonly at issue in our Orlando and Winter Park personal injury cases include:
- Brain damage;
- Back and neck injuries;
- Spinal cord injury;
- Paralysis and quadriplegia;
- Broken or shattered bones;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Amputations; and
- Internal bleeding or organ damage.
Even if you do not believe that you sustained serious injuries, it is always wise to seek a thorough medical evaluation as soon as you can following any type of accident. Some injuries may not be immediately apparent and a timely diagnosis can serve as important evidence that the accident in question was, in fact, the cause of your injuries. If you are diagnosed with any type of injury that requires treatment, your next call should be to discuss your situation with a member of our skilled legal team.
Bringing Effective Claims Against A Number Of Negligent Parties
Just as the injuries in a personal injury claim may vary significantly, so can the type of party against whom you file your claim. Many different parties can act in a negligent manner and cause injury, including as follows:
- Aggressive, distracted, drunk, or otherwise negligent drivers;
- Government entities that fail to properly design, inspect, maintain, or repair roadways;
- Business owners that allow hazardous conditions to exist on the premises;
- Manufacturers that produce and sell defective products;
- Trucking companies or nursing homes that hire unqualified or dangerous individuals or that fail to adequately train employees;
- Medical professionals who cause unnecessary complications or injuries in patients; and
- Employers who fail to meet requisite health and safety standards.
Any party that caused or contributed to your personal injuries should provide full and just compensation under the law.
The exact value of your personal injury case is closely tied to the nature and severity of your injuries and the extent of your losses. For instance, if your injuries are long-lasting and severe, your losses are likely extensive and may include past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent disability, and more. Even if your injuries are relatively minor, however, you still may be entitled to recover for your medical bills and any other losses you experienced and you should not hesitate to consult with our office today. Our Winter Park and Orlando personal injury attorney will strive to obtain the compensation you deserve in your particular case.
When Is The Right Time To Discuss Your Case With An Attorney?
The right time to call a skilled personal injury attorney is now. Florida law provides a strict statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case, giving victims four years from the date of an accident and injury to file a claim. Preparing a claim can take time, however, and often involves extensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident in question. Investigation can help identify all possible negligent parties, gather evidence of their negligence, gain a full understanding of the extent of your injuries and the nature of related losses, among other things. Having all of this information is important to prepare and file the most effective claim possible. For this reason, you never want to wait until the last minute to call a personal injury lawyer to discuss a potential case. Instead, as soon as your health is stable, you should consult with an attorney in our office for a free case evaluation and legal counsel.
