Boca Raton Car Accidents

 

The Boca Raton car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano have been handling car accident cases for more than thirty years. Acting as fast as humanly possible is essential in an automobile accident case. Therefore, as soon as we are contacted and hired by a new client, we send our in-house investigator to the scene of the accident. This allows him to immediately start collecting evidence that could be lost in the aftermath of a car accident and start interviewing witnesses while the facts surrounding the crash are still fresh in their minds.

Our firm represents clients in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, Brevard County, Orange County, and all over Florida. We have also handled and do handle significant cases throughout the United States. Our firm has its main office in Miami, with satellite offices in Boca Raton and Orlando, which are by appointment only. We have been successful in resolving thousands of cases over the years through verdict and settlement. The victims in many of these cases have received multi-million dollar awards and have had their futures, as well as those of their families, secured.

Our automobile accident lawyers handle all types of personal injury cases. Unfortunately, the victims in many of these cases have suffered serious injuries or died. These cases include:

  • Head-on collisions
  • Rear-end collisions
  • SUV rollover accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Hit & run accidents
  • Highway accidents
  • Accidents while stopped on the shoulder of the road
  • Intersection collisions
  • Accidents in parking lots
  • Accidents caused by aggressive drivers
  • Car accidents related to the use of cell phones (Talking/Texting while driving)
  • Accidents with uninsured motorists
  • Accidents with underinsured motorists
  • Any other accidents

A car accident can cause unpredictable consequences. Even crashes initially considered "small" due to the amount of property damage involved can cause catastrophic injuries. Sometimes the full extent of these injuries does not show up until after a few days or even weeks or months after a crash. Some of these injuries include spinal cord or brain injuries. Often, victims of automobile collisions end up suffering chronic pain long after the accident. Recovering from these injuries can sometimes turn into a long, painful and expensive process. If you are unlucky enough to suffer a car accident, how will you pay for your recovery? Where will you find adequate assistance getting the funds necessary to pay for that recovery? The lawyers at Greenberg, Stone & Urbano make sure that their clients get compensated in accordance with their injury, the amount of coverage and liability and receive the best medical care available.

Recovering Damages in Car Accidents

The Boca Raton car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, initially make sure that their clients get the best medical treatment available for their injuries as soon as possible after an accident and that the cost of their clients’ recovery is covered in accordance with Florida law, by their own PIP (Personal Injury Protection, aka “No-Fault”) and later by those who caused the victims’ injuries. Moreover, our lawyers continue to be involved with these victims’ recovery, making sure they receive the best possible medical treatment until they get better or reach the maximum medical improvement possible.

Car accidents’ victims may obtain money damages from the people that caused their injuries and from the insurance companies of those owners and drivers. These money damages may include compensation for past, present and future medical expenses (which would include rehabilitation therapy), damages for lost wages, as well as for the loss of future wages and the ability to earn money in the future. It may also include compensation for disfigurement, pain and suffering, disability, as well as for loss of enjoyment of life. Similarly, those who caused the accident may have to compensate the victims for any modifications that may need to be made to their residences in order to accommodate disabilities. Similarly the surviving relative of wrongful death victims may recover money damages. Theses damages usually include financial loss, emotional distress and loss of companionship from the loved one.

Being a "comparative negligence" state, Florida apportions liability between the parties. Consequently, when the victim is found to have been liable for the injuries suffered in a certain percentage (i.e., for not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash), the same percentage will be deducted from any award the victim may receive.

Damages in Car Accidents

Car accidents cause havoc in the lives of all victims. As a result, these victims face tremendous expenses from medical bills, lost salaries, pain, suffering and loss of their ability to enjoy life. Relatives of victims in wrongful death cases often suffer financial loss for support, mental distress and loss of the companionship they used to get from their lost loved one.
