  • Krome Avenue Crash Results In The death Of A Husband, Father and Grandfather

    Practice Area:
    Car Accidents
    Outcome:
    Multi-Million Dollar Verdict
    Description:
    A 65 year old husband was driving his car northbound on Krome Avenue, in Miami-Dade County, when a Southbound car crossed the center line, striking his car and causing his death. His widow sought the representation of Stewart G. Greenberg to help her and her family deal with the tragic loss of life. Although the insurer for the driver and owner only had $10,000 in Bodily Injury Coverage, the insurance company failed to tender the funds for over three months. After suit was filed, a check for $10,000 was delivered to Greenberg & Stone. Mr. Greenberg promptly returned the check stating that the tender was untimely. Discovery & litigation ensued and a jury trial was held wherein the jury awarded the widow over $2.6 million. After the verdict was read, and while the parties were still in Court, one of the defense lawyers came over to Mr. Greenberg and said, “your client will never see a single dime.” Thereafter, a Bad faith claim was filed against the insurance company. The defense lawyer was a prophet. The defense lawyer was correct as a “single dime” was not paid, but, rather 200,000,000 million dimes ($2 million) were paid by the insurance carrier in the end!
  • Collision With 18-Wheeler Causes Traumatic Brain Injury

    Practice Area:
    Trucking Accident
    Outcome:
    Large Settlement
    Description:
    We just settled a case in which a young woman was involved in a horrific auto accident and sustained multiple catastrophic injuries. The woman was driving her Honda Civic along Okeechobee Road in Miami-Dade when a large, 18-wheel truck negligently made an improper U-turn in front of her. The devastating impact left the car unrecognizable. The young woman, who was a teacher in Pembroke Pines at the time of the crash, had to be cut out of the car by fire rescue. She was airlifted to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital where she was treated for a traumatic brain injury and various orthopedic injuries. The night before trial was to start, the insurance carrier for the trucking company offered to tender their policy limits. The law firm had researched the financial viability of the insurance carrier and made the determination that the insurance company was in a precarious financial state. The question then became: would the insurance company be around to pay a judgment by the time we went to trial and obtained an excess judgment (over the policy limits) and won a subsequent Bad Faith Trialor would it be insolvent? The trucking company itself was out of business, so they had no assets to contribute to the settlement. Upon our recommendation, the young woman accepted the substantialpolicy limits. A few months later, the insurance company did in fact become insolvent. The investigation by the lawyers at Greenberg & Stone helped our client make the right choice because had she not accepted the policy limits, she would have collected hundreds of thousands of dollars less and it would have taken years to get the money.
