Amanda Wright

Amanda Wright has been the most informative, professional, and supportive attorney throughout the entire process of our case. My respect towards her and the firm she represents, my case has always been addressed by “Our Case” and not “Your Case.” Attention to detail has superseded all expectations and experience of attorneys in choosing the right one for me.

I retained Ms. Amanda during the most difficult time of my entire transportation career. She showed attention to detail during the most sensitive time not only towards me but the other party involved as well. She assisted me during my affidavits and representation with law enforcement and has continued to do so, to date.

She was readily available to answer voicemails, email correspondence, and provided the most understandable of explanations pertaining to legal matters.

Thank you for your continued assistance and I would highly recommend Ms. Amanda, along with Osborne & Francis LLC.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your firm's representation of my daughter Willow P. Ms. Amanda Wright was the attorney assigned to our case and we could not have been more grateful for her diligent and skillful representation of Willow.

My sister is Mr. J. Gerard Stranch's paralegal (Stranch, Jennings & Garvey, PLLC) and of course, I reached out to her for recommendations. Mr. Stranch recommended we contact your firm.

We contacted your office based upon the recommendation and your staff immediately did the intake of our case and assigned us Ms. Wright - I believe the most compassionate and caring attorney I have ever encountered. Ms. Amanda Wright was everything you could possibly ask for. Not only did she actually care, she gave us her personal cell phone number and assured us that no question was too small to ask. She kept us informed during every step of the process and she helped me (as a mother) through all the scary things this brings with it. She knew the best doctors to recommend and it was always her highest priority that my daughter was well taken care of and received the care she needed.

I never had to deal with having to leave messages and waiting to hear back since we had direct access to Ms. Wright. She handled everything so professionally and has become very dear to our family. This didn't feel like a legal transaction - we felt like she was taking care of us as if we were family. She cared so much even though this was a small case. She always asked how things were going outside of the case as well and spoke to my daughter personally. I don't think you can find a better personal injury attorney. She used to work for major insurance companies so she knows their tactics and was always a step ahead of them. She is a pro in knowing what insurance coverages to have and also advised us on this. I feel like I'm better prepared for the world as she also helped us obtain the needed coverage going forward to feel peace of mind for unplanned events.

Recent Cases

$1,500,000 – Negligent Security and Wrongful Death Settlement

Our client’s daughter, a single mother, was kidnapped and murdered by a predator who had previously been reported to property management. The apartment complex was plagued by a high rate of violent crime for several years prior to the incident. Despite property management’s knowledge of the predator living at the apartment complex, property management did not take sufficient measures to ensure he did not return. During the lawsuit, depositions revealed that property management failed to enforce basic safety rules, adequately assess crime and respond to the safety risks at this property.

$1,000,000 – Wrongful Death Settlement

Our 27-year-old client was tragically shot and killed while she was in her rented trailer park home. Our investigation revealed that the trailer park had a significant violent crime problem, which the owner failed to properly address. Crime records showed that there were hundreds of calls to 911 and the police every year, during the three-year period before the shooting. Despite the serious crime problem, the owner of the trailer park failed to have manned security on the date of the shooting, which may have prevented this attack.

$1,000,000 – Slip and Fall Settlement

Our client suffered a slip and fall due to water on the floor at a downtown Orlando nightclub. Prior to the lawsuit, the nightclub offered $7,000. In response, we filed suit and began to prepare the case for trial. Video of the incident revealed that an employee cleaned up the water and that there was no warning sign in the area.

Our client underwent three surgical procedures and had a future recommendation at the time we settled the case shortly after mediation.

$625,000 – Negligent Security Settlement

Our client was shot at a vacation home community. The community only had one serious violent crime in the past 3 years, but it did have a history of out of control house parties which was a constant nuisance. Throughout the discovery process we determined that the security guard company failed to follow its policies and procedures. 

The security company allowed the attacker to enter the community and it also failed to prevent the house party where our client was shot. The homeowner, homeowners association, property management company, and a popular home rental company were also negligent in their operations and they contributed to the settlement.

$525,000 – Workplace Injury Settlement

Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury at a warehouse of a popular grocery store as a result of a large cart that was used to stock merchandise. The top shelf of the cart became unsecured and it struck our client on the head causing vision, memory, and vestibular issues. Through our investigation, we found that the subject cart was unsafe and was the subject of claims and lawsuits throughout the country. The defendant was made aware that the cart was dangerous and defectively designed but did not do enough to provide safer equipment prior to the incident. The case settled prior to a hearing on our motion to compel evidence regarding prior incidents involving the cart at all stores the defendant was using the cart.

$375,000 Trip and Fall Settlement

My client suffered a trip and fall due to torn carpet on her apartment’s stairway, which caused an acute tear of her rotator cuff requiring surgery. She was forced to use the dilapidated stairway because the elevator was out of order. Our investigation revealed pervasive maintenance issues at the property which caused the incident. 

$320,000 Slip and Fall Settlement

My client suffered a slip and fall while on the job resulting in a tear of her meniscus and knee surgery. We pursued recovery from the landlord and maintenance company after she resolved her Workers Compensation claim.

$300,000 Car Crash Settlement

My client was in a rear end collision and her SUV appeared to have sustained "no damage." The other vehicle sustained significant property damage and it was deemed a total loss. My client underwent pain management and minimally invasive surgical procedures for her neck and back.

$200,000 – Auto Accident Settlement

Rear-end motor vehicle accident against the at-fault driver and the Plaintiff’s UM carrier. Plaintiff underwent a lumbar microdiscectomy. The UM carrier argued the Plaintiff could not have suffered the injury which required surgery. Policy limits were ultimately tendered by the UM carrier.

$150,000 – Dog Bite Settlement

Dog bite. Our client was viciously attacked by a 100 pound dog while walking her dog outside of a dog park, which was located on her apartment complex’s property. The owner of the dog was walking him on a leash, but the owner failed to keep his 100-pound dog away from our client. The dog sank his teeth into our client’s leg, causing permanent damage. We filed a lawsuit against the dog owner and the owner of the apartment complex. The dog owner’s renter’s insurance agreed to pay us their policy limits of $50,000 to settle the claim against him. The lawsuit continued against the apartment complex. The apartment complex initially denied any responsibility for the incident. They denied any knowledge that the 100-pound dog was dangerous and denied that the dog had attacked anyone else. During the depositions of the property manager and maintenance staff, the employees admitted that the dog had bitten the head of maintenance about 1 year before our client was attacked. The apartment complex took no action to remove the dangerous dog after the dog bit the head of maintenance. Sadly, the dog attack that caused our client’s injuries was preventable had they removed the dangerous dog from the property. Shortly before the case was set to go to trial, the apartment complex agreed to pay our client $100,000.
