As plaintiff personal injury lawyers, we take pride in the work we do exclusively for individuals, not big business. We work tirelessly to achieve the greatest possible recoveries for each of our clients and their families, and best of all, our clients pay us nothing until we win for them.
Below is a list of just a few of the thousands of settlements and awards we have won on our clients’ behalf to date – amounts are before attorney fees and medical cost deductions. Attorney fees and medical costs are covered by the settlement or award won – this means if we don’t win a settlement or verdict for you, you pay us nothing. Naturally, every case and every client is unique, as are the results we obtain – clients may or may not obtain the same or similar results in each case.

Settlement for a bicyclist hit and injured by a car
Settlement for car accident resulting in death
An individual was drinking at The Eagles Lodge for 11 hours, left the bar and pulled into the path of an oncoming motorcyclist dragging him for 200 feet and left him for dead in the road. Okeechobee County sheriff’s office found the drunk driver at his house 2 hours later and upon inspection of his vehicle found our clients glove between the brake line and the frame of his truck. After a blood draw his BAC was a .221. Our client suffered multiple broken bones and a massive brain injury. The Eagles Lodge continued to serve the drunk driver for 11 continuous hours. Furthermore, The Eagles Lodge knew their member was a habitual alcoholic but continued to serve him drinks and leave on his own accord. On May 16th at 4:15pm, the jury handed down a verdict for our client and his wife of more than $11.1m, making this the largest verdict ever in Okeechobee County.
Steinger, Greene & Feiner, P.A. attorneys Alejandro Garcia and Todd Baker were successful in winning a $1.475 million verdict for a father who can no longer play basketball and enjoy other activities with his son after two tractor trailer trucks collided in an accident in Collier County. Collier County, which is largely considered one of the most conservative counties in Florida, makes the verdict that much more significant.
The firm’s client, Octavio Naranjo, was making a U-turn in his 14-wheeler, when the Defendant, Yosbani Cuesta, who was in an 18-wheeler and driving too fast to stop in time, ran the red light and crashed into his vehicle. Mr. Naranjo suffered lumbar injuries and underwent a laminectomy at L4-L5. The plaintiff’s argued he would need significant future care for multiple cervical and lumbar herniations. The defense argued Mr. Naranjo could not have completed the U-turn in his truck and was at fault for putting himself in the path of the defendant’s vehicle who had a green light.
Through a recreation of the U-turn in an exemplar tractor trailer, Garcia and Baker, through their expert accident reconstructionist, were able to successfully argue to the jury that the defendant was liable and that he was lying about many facts to attribute fault to the plaintiff. After a four day trial before Collier County Judge James Shenko, a jury awarded $195,000.00 in medical expenses, $455,000.00 in lost wages and $825,000.00 in pain and suffering to Mr. Naranjo on March 24.
