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.
37 year-old man involved in auto accident when the defendant switched lanes on I-95 into our client’s path and vehicle. After both beck and back injuries which resulted in surgery, the insurance company offered no money (zero, zilch, nothing!) After a lengthy trial, Steinger, Iscoe & Greene was able to recover $2.2 Million for our client.
Settlement for auto accident resulting in neck and back injuries
Married father of two and a full-time chef, our client was rear-ended by a garbage truck. He sustained injuries to his neck and back as well as head injuries. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene recovered $2 Million for our client.
Verdict for auto accident resulting in herniated cervical discs
Steinger, Iscoe & Greene, 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.

Steinger Iscoe and Greene attorney Lee E. Levenson effectively secured $1.4 million settlement for his client, the victim of a motorcycle accident. The client was ejected from his motorcycle, causing him to strike the hood of the negligent driver’s car. After being transported by Fire Rescue to the hospital, the client endured numerous surgeries to his leg. The news of this settlement comes as a relief after enduring the accident.
REAR END COLLISION:
Our client, a (56) year old immigrant from Mexico, had just spent a wonderful day at Gatorland Zoo with his family. As they were on their way home and stuck in stop and go traffic, their vehicle was violently rear-ended by a tractor trailer. The driver of the tractor-trailer was operating on a suspended drivers’ license when he caused this completely preventable crash. Our client was rushed to the emergency room with serious neck and back injuries. Our client had undergone several back surgeries prior to this crash, but was managing his pain well. As a result of this accident, he sustained an exacerbation of his prior back injury and an injury to his neck. He endured numerous spinal injections to treat his pain and subsequently underwent an Anterior Cervical Microdiskectomy and a Revision to the prior surgery performed to his back. He may require additional surgery in the future.
Although the liability was clear, the defendant’s insurance carrier disputed our client’s back injury and subsequent surgery, claiming it was pre-existing.
As a result of the accident, our client incurred substantial medical bills. Our firm achieved a settlement in the amount of $1,300,000. ($1,450,000 was the total settlement achieved for this very deserving family).
Settlement for construction accident/fall through the roof
SLIP AND FALL:
Verdict for apartment home handrail slip and fall accident resulting in neck and back surgery
Steinger, Iscoe & Greene attorney Neil Anthony effectively converted the denial of liability in a ‘he said – she said’ auto accident into a $1,000,000 settlement for his client. The adverse driver claimed they were not at fault for the accident, having carefully entered the intersection after making a complete stop. Without the evidence of eye-witness testimony, Mr. Anthony was able to recover the ‘black box’ from the negligent driver’s vehicle to show, unequivocally, that the driver was in fact speeding and took no pause before entering the intersection. The retrieval of this evidence successfully saw that Mr. Anthony’s client received the full value for their injuries.
