Orlando Car Accidents
The Orlando motor vehicle accident lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano have more than 100 years of combined experience helping victims of car accidents get back on their feet and live a productive and happy life. As soon as contacted by the victim or a relative, we begin working the case to make sure our clients get the maximum compensation possible.
For example, we immediately dispatch our in-house investigator to the scene so that he can recover all evidence possible before it is lost in the pandemonium that usually follows a car accident. Similarly, if called soon, we may be able to dispatch our investigator fast enough to have him find witness still around the accident scene and interview them while the events leading to the accident are still fresh in their minds. For some cases, an attorney visits the scene as soon as possible after impact, but definitely, before the case proceeds to trial.
Our firm represents clients throughout South Florida, including Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, Monroe County and Orange County, as well as throughout Florida. We have offices in Miami, Boca Raton, and Orlando. We have handled thousands of cases to a successful conclusion, many through verdict, others through settlement, including numerous awards in excess of a million dollars.

It is impossible to predict the consequences of a car accident. Sometimes, seemingly minor crashes (from a property damage standpoint) can result in catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries, permanent disability, or chronic pain. These cases usually take months, sometimes even years, to arrive at a final resolution. The lawyers of Greenberg, Stone & Urbano stand by our clients through the whole legal process and are dedicated to securing full compensation for them.Recovering Damages in Car Accidents
Our car accident lawyers in Orlando make sure that clients receive adequate medical care for their injuries without having to pay for it out of their own money, and we help manage their continued medical rehabilitation.
Victims of motor vehicle accidents are entitled to collect damages from the people that caused their injuries, as well as from those people’s insurance companies. These damages include compensation for past, present and future medical care (including rehabilitation therapy), lost salaries and loss of future earnings, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering. When a car accident turns deadly, family members may pursue legal action for wrongful death damages. These cases typically include compensation for economic loss, emotional anguish and loss of consortium of the loved one.
Since Florida is a "comparative negligence" state, any negligent act committed by the victim like, for example, not wearing a seat belt, will cause a reduction of any resulting award. Our purpose is to prove that the other driver caused the accident by a preponderance of the evidence and that the use of a seatbelt may have resulted in the same injuries that were sustained or that even worse injuries may have occurred.Damages in Car Accidents
Automobile accidents typically result in great suffering and loss to the victims, whose lives are subsequently affected by large medical bills, lost wages, loss of enjoyment of life, as well as pain and suffering. The relatives of victims that lost their lives suffer economic loss, mental anguish and loss of companionship.Knowledgeable Representation
