Homestead Car Accidents
The Homestead car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano have been helping victims of motor vehicle accidents get the compensation they need for their recovery for more than 30 years. Immediately after being hired by a client, we dispatch our in-house investigator to the scene so that he may start collecting evidence that could be otherwise lost in the aftermath of a car crash. Sometimes, if retained by our client soon enough, our investigator is able to interview potential witnesses at the scene while the events leading to the collision are still fresh in their minds.
The experienced lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano handle cases for clients in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, Brevard County, Orange County and throughout Florida. Our firm’s main office is in Miami. We have satellite offices in Boca Raton and Orlando. We have brought successful resolutions to thousands of cases, some through verdict, most through settlement. In many of these cases our clients have been awarded damages in excess of a million dollars. Partners Stewart G. Greenberg, Mark D. Stone and Dennis N. Urbano have more more than 100 years of combined experience.
Our attorneys have dealt with all types of car accident cases, many resulting in serious injury or death:

Any car accident can yield catastrophic results: while some victims end up with spinal cord injuries, others suffer brain and assorted other injuries. It is not uncommon in many of our cases for the victim to end up permanently disabled or suffering from chronic pain that will remain throughout their life. Recovering compensation in these cases may take months or even years. Yet, rest assured that the lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano will continue to be dedicated to securing a full compensation for their clients.Recovering Damages in Car Accidents
The Homestead car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano, work hard to make sure that their clients receive the best medical attention available for their injuries and that the cost for those medical services is paid for by their own P.I.P. (Personal Injury Protection) as well as those who are to blame for the accident. Similarly, our attorneys continue to help manage the ongoing medical treatment of our clients.
Accident victims are entitled to receive money damages from the people that negligently caused their injuries, as well as from their insurance companies to pay for medical bills and future care that they require, for their lost salaries or loss of the future earning capacity, for their scarring and disfigurement, for their pain and suffering, as well as for the loss of their ability to enjoy life. In fatal car accidents, close relatives of the deceased may file suit for wrongful death damages, which typically include the lost financial support they used to get from the victim, compensation for the emotional distressed suffered by the loss, as well as for the companionship they used to receive from their lost loved one.
Please note that when it comes to the assignment of negligence, Florida is what is called a "comparative negligence" state. This means that negligence is distributed among the parties depending on their percentage of contribution to the accident. Therefore, any negligent act committed by the victim (like, for example, not wearing a seat belt) will reduce the jury award given to the victim. It is our role to prove that either there was no comparative negligence on our client’s part, or if there was any, that the percentage is minimal.Damages in Car Accidents

Those who suffer injuries in accidents typically end up accumulating large medical bills, substantial lost wages, the loss of future income, suffer pain and lose their ability to enjoy life.
