Kendall Car Accidents
The Kendall car accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano have more than 100 years of combined experience handling car accident cases. We begin working a case immediately after clients retain us regarding an auto collision and one of the first things we do is to send our in-house investigator to the scene of the accident so that he can gather as much evidence as possible to solidify our client’s case and allow us to recover as much compensation for them as permitted by the law.
Our experienced litigation attorneys represent clients throughout Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, Brevard County, Orange County and Florida in general. With our main office in Miami, we also have satellite offices in Boca Raton and Orlando, where we meet client by appointment only. We have successfully resolved thousands of cases through verdict and settlement, many of them with awards in excess of a million dollars.
Our lawyers handle every type of car accident. Many of these cases have resulted in serious injury or death:
- Accidents with uninsured motorists
- Accidents with underinsured motorists
- Rear-end collisions
- Head-on collisions
- Drunk driving accidents
- Hit & run accidents
- SUV rollover 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
- Any other accidents
Any accident can produce catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, some result in spinal cord injuries, brain injuries or other injuries that cause victims to become permanently disable, or live in chronic pain. Recovery in many of these cases may take some time. During the pendency of the claim the lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano will remain steadfast in their devotion to making sure our clients receive full compensation.Recovering Damages in Car Accidents
Our car accident attorneys in Kendall advise clients and make sure clients receive proper medical attention and treatment for their injuries without having to pay for it with their own money, whenever possible. Similarly, we help manage our clients’ ongoing medical treatment.
Accident victims may be entitled to receive compensation from those who negligently caused their injuries, as well as from their insurance companies. This compensation may include funds for past, present and future medical bills, lost salaries, and loss of future wages, permanent scarring and disfigurement, pain and suffering, and the loss of one’s ability to enjoy life. In cases where the accident has resulted in a fatality, the relatives of the deceased may pursue compensation by suing for wrongful death, which may include economic loss for the financial support they used to get from the victim, emotional distress and loss of the companionship the received from the lost loved one among other damages.
It is important for victims to understand that Florida is a "comparative negligence" state. This means that the jury in a trial will apportion a percentage of liability to any negligent act committed by the victim (such as for not wearing a seat belt). This percentage of liability assigned to the plaintiff will reduce an award to the victim by that percentage. Our goal is to prove that 100 percent of the negligence (or an amount close to that) lies with the driver who caused the crash.Damages in Car Accidents
Car and other motor vehicle accidents can cause considerable suffering and loss to motorists, passengers and pedestrians. Typically, victims are left with medical bills, they lose wages, suffer pain, and in cases of lingering injuries, often victims lose their ability to enjoy life’s activities as they once did. Life is hard and complicated enough, without the added burden of limitations due to the negligent acts of others. Relatives of deceased victims suffer financial loss, mental distress and loss of the companionship they used to receive from the victim.Knowledgeable Representation
Our auto accident attorneys in Kendall are very familiar handling claims where fault (negligence) has to be proven together with damages (how badly one is hurt) and causation (proving that the accident in fact caused the injuries that are being claimed). Our lawyers and staff understand the medical issues involved in car accident claims, and have developed over the years an ability to convey their clients' case to juries and insurance adjusters in order to obtain maximum compensation.Prompt Action
