Orlando Injury Lawyers
Orlando, once referred to Native Americans as, “The City Beautiful,” has retained claim to this title over more than a century of transformation and innovation. Located in Central Florida, Orlando is the heart of the metropolitan area, which boasts a population of 2.4 million – and counting. The city proper has more than 260,000 residents, making it the fourth-largest city in Florida, and it sees some 62 million visitors a year.
Orlando owes much of its popularity to the rapid growth that started in the 1980s and continued through the first decade of the 21st Century. It’s home to the University of Central Florida, one of the nation’s largest schools, and is a premier tourist destination due to its proximity to some of the country’s most popular theme parks, including Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando Resort. Downtown Orlando is a destination in its own right, serving as one of the major hubs for notational and international conferences and conventions.

Our attorneys know that when you’re seriously injured in any of these scenarios, you have a lot more to worry about than fighting with an insurance company or trying to get a fair settlement from a large corporation.What is My Case Worth and What Will It Cost?
These are the two most common questions our Orlando injury lawyers are asked upfront.
As far as how much the case is worth, it’s truly not possible to know that until we more closely examine the facts of your case. Your ultimate payout will depend not just on the severity of your injuries, but:
- Who was at fault in the accident (and whether you share any portion of the responsibility);
- The amount of your medical bills/ future medical costs;
- Whether you were forced to take time off work – or have been unable to return to work – as a result of the accident;
- How your injuries will affect your life – and the lives of your loved ones – moving forward;
- Whether those at-fault carried adequate insurance.
In terms of what you will pay us, our injury attorneys offer services on a contingency fee basis. What this means is clients pay a percentage of their verdict/ settlement to the attorney if the result is favorable. However, if our team is not able to win your case, you do not have to pay us.Orlando Personal Injury Risks
As a larger metropolitan area, Orlando shares many of the same perils as other big cities. The good news is the city has been working for some time to improve safety for its residents and visitors – particularly bicyclists and pedestrians. This has been a central issue as Florida has some of the highest rates of cyclist and pedestrian fatalities in the country – and Orlando has some of the highest rates in Florida.
The city’s transportation planning for bicyclists and pedestrians involves a five-point approach that includes:
Engineering – Ensuring public roads are designed to accommodate cyclists and pedestrians and that the off-road and on-road network is both connected and in good condition;
Education – Teaching motorists how to safely share the road, teaching cyclists how to navigate congested traffic areas and making cycling education available to children and adults;
Enforcement – Targeted enforcement by police to ensure drivers are safely sharing the road;
Encouragement – Creating commuter incentives, improving way-finding signs, distributing community bike maps and creating safer routes to schools;
Evaluation – Regularly measure successes and failures – including injury and crash statistics – and determine where improvement is needed.
Other concerns for injuries in this city involve the responsibility of hotels, theme parks and other venues to ensure guests are reasonably safe from known hazards, such as dangerous walking surfaces, improperly-stacked shelves, slippery floors, unsafe swimming facilities, untrained staff and inadequate security leading to a third-party criminal attack.
