Orlando Personal Injury Attorneys
Since 1950, the Hornsby family has represented our fellow Central Floridians and their families who have suffered personal injuries as a result of auto accidents and other negligence claims. James Russell Hornsby, a well-respected and colorful attorney known for his aggressive but intelligent courtroom demeanor founded the family firm in 1950. Hornsby’s style once was likened by attorneys interviewed by The Orlando Sentinel in 1979 to a cross between that of a Southern gentleman and an avenging angel “who will shred to smithereens any witness who dares to say things that hurt his client.”
His son, Larry Hornsby, continued that tradition in 1976 when he established his own practice focusing on representing individuals suffering personal injuries. Larry Hornsby has earned an AV Preeminent Rating, the highest possible rating for ethical standards and professional legal ability, from Martindale-Hubble. Today, Hank Hornsby, recognized by Thompson Reuters as a SuperLawyer®, a recognition given to only the top 5% of attorneys in the state of Florida, continues the family tradition.
To this day the firm stays true to its philosophy and commitment to providing quality and unique legal representation to its clients, contact our experienced Orlando personal injury attorneys today.

Automobile accidents result in serious, even life-threatening injuries. The effects of these injuries can linger long after the accident and require ongoing medical care and treatment. If you have been injured in an automobile accident, contact Hornsby Law Group. While you may be feeling pressure from an insurance company to settle your claim, it is important to remember that insurance companies have one goal-to make themselves money. Our experienced Orlando auto accident attorneys will represent your best interests, using their legal knowledge and experience to get you the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Accidents involving trucks and tractor trailers often result in severe injuries and extensive property loss. The large size and weight of most trucks contributes to the extent of the damage these accidents can cause. If you are involved in this type of accident, you will likely find yourself facing a trucking company that will do whatever it takes to protect their assets and their drivers. At the Hornsby Law Group, our experienced Orlando truck accident attorneys provide the fierce legal representation in seeking damages from these trucking companies. We will make sure at fault drivers are held responsible, and that you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Motorcycles offer little protection in the event of an accident, and motorcycle accidents often end up causing severe, potentially disabling injuries. At Hornsby Law Group, we understand the serious nature of these injuries, as well as the potential impact your injuries can have on your life and livelihood. Our experienced Orlando motorcycle accident attorneys will work aggressively to ensure that your rights are protected, and that your future needs are provided for.
Slip and Fall Injuries
Slip and fall injuries are considered some of the most common forms of accidental injuries. Often, these injuries are not an accident at all, but are instead the result of someone’s negligent or reckless actions. At Hornsby Law Group, we know the serious ramifications that can result from these types of injuries. Even a seemingly mild injury can have serious impacts on your quality of life, and limit your ability to do the things you once enjoyed. Our experienced Orlando slip and fall accident attorneys can help ensure you get the compensation you deserve to cover current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and the pain and suffering caused by your injury.
Medical malpractice cases often involve extensive damages, and require a skilled and knowledgeable attorney who will aggressively represent your best interests. At the Hornsby Law Group, our experienced Orlando medical malpractice attorneys understand the serious injuries that are often the result in medical malpractice cases. We will help hold responsible parties accountable for their negligent actions, and get you the compensation you need to recover.
Having a loved one die as the result of someone’s negligent or reckless actions is a devastating loss, and has an enormous impact on the surviving family members and friends. At a time like this, you need an aggressive attorney looking out for your best interests, and ensuring that your family is provided for. At Hornsby Law Group, we understand the pain your family is going through as a result of this tragedy, and that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your loved one. Let our experienced Orlando wrongful death attorneys help your family during this painful time, and help ensure your family is provided for.

At Hornsby Law Group, we understand how an on-the-job injury can have devastating consequences to your health and your finances. Contact our experienced Orlando workers’ compensation attorneys today to ensure you get the benefits you deserve.
Damages and Compensation
Accidents can give rise to a variety of temporary or permanent medical conditions, and result in medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, sometimes indefinitely. Some of the more severe injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Broken bones;
- Internal bleeding; and
Perhaps what is most frightening after these incidents is simply that someone may not realize that they are injured until some time has passed, thus, getting a thorough medical evaluation after you have been in any kind of accident is always a good idea.
Negligent parties are not limited to individuals; in fact, often someone is injured due to a variety of parties that can include companies, contractors, individuals, manufacturers, local governments, doctors, hospitals, hospital staff, employers, and others. All of these parties can be named in a personal injury lawsuit, if necessary.
Every state has what’s called a statute of limitations, or a limited timeframe in which you can bring your claim. Personal injury victims typically have four years from the time of the incident to bring their claim in court.
