My experience with Steinger, Iscoe & Greene was a very positive experience. They addressed my needs right away. I didn’t expect to get a lawyer as quickly as I did. I got a phone call the next day and it was Steve Sheinfeld. He was very professional and courteous. I signed up because I had confidence right away… Steve was willing to walk through this journey with me, where I could walk away feeling a lot better.
We were very, very pleased. I would recommend Steinger, Iscoe & Greene to anybody and everybody who has ever had this kind of thing happen to them… Neil Anthony couldn’t have been a better.
I never, in my wildest dreams, could have foreseen that I would meet and be represented by such kind, professional, supportive, (I could go on) people as the people that I came in contact with who represent your office. Literally, every single one of them! I somehow chose your firm, out of all of them out there, and I could not be happier to be so wrong regarding my initial incorrect stereotype about big Personal Injury law firms. I have made sure that everyone I know is aware of my experience with Steinger, Iscoe, and Greene, and I have let it be known that if they should ever be in the need of legal representation, there is no better phone call to make. Thank you so very much and please extend my sincerest thanks to Christina and the wonderful team that I had.
There are a considerable number of ways a personal injury can occur. Perhaps the most common cause is traffic accidents. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety, an average of 1,025 accidents occurred every day throughout the state in 2015. Many thousands more personal injuries happen due to other reasons every day.
Through hard work and diligence, we have recovered over $1 billion for our clients. Many of our outstanding settlements and verdicts for our clients have resulted in multimillion dollar awards. Each case is unique, with its own set of facts, circumstances and legal issues, but we approach them all with the determined goal to get our clients the full compensation they deserve. That compensation may include medical expenses, lost income or wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and more.
These incidents exact an enormous toll on victims, their families, and the state. Whether you were hurt by a traffic accident or experienced some other type of personal injury, there should never be a question about recovering the financial resources you need to deal with medical expenses, lost income or wages, vehicle property damage, pain and suffering or the emotional and financial repercussions of a family member who has been killed. Call us today at (786) 224-4330 for a free consultation.
We work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve after your accidents. See what we have won on our clients’ behalf:
Settlement for truck accident victim
Settlement for a bicyclist hit and injured by a car
Settlement for auto accident resulting in death
Settlement for motorcycle accident resulting in death
A fair settlement is not what you can expect to receive from the insurance company. Their goal is to reduce payouts on claims so they can remain highly profitable. Our proven and committed legal team understands the tactics these companies regularly use to pay claimants as little as possible. We routinely battle their schemes in and out of court, and have developed effective methods for doing so.
With a legal team of more than 30 lawyers and more than 140 staff, including investigators and other assistants, we have the resources needed to get the job done efficiently. With our No-Fee Guarantee, you can bring your personal injury case to us with confidence, knowing you will pay nothing until we recover the compensation you deserve. Throughout the entire case, we will be by your side, providing the guidance you need.
Compensation for injuries can be obtained by negotiating an out-of-court settlement. Generally, insurance companies such as medical malpractice insurers, homeowners’ insurers or auto insurers will be responsible for covering losses. This means insurance companies will be negotiating a settlement with victims.
If no settlement agreement is reached, Okeechobee accident attorneys can represent victims in court. Pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death case at trial can be complicated because the victim has the burden of proving his or her case. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene has represented more than 32,000 injured clients in settlements and court trials and we are prepared to put our legal experience to work to help you make a compelling case.
When it comes to recovering compensation for an injury, having an experienced attorney on your side is essential to stand up to the insurance companies and to fight for your rights. You need not just a lawyer with experience, but an attorney with both the knowledge to make your case and the compassion to treat your case with the importance it deserves.
Steinger, Iscoe & Greene has what it takes to help. Giving you peace of mind is our goal, which is why we fight for your financial security after an injury and why do not charge legal fees for representing you unless we recover monetary compensation.
