You Deserve Guidance to Make Clear Informed, Decisions
While you focus on healing, our attorneys focus on getting you the compensation you are entitled to. There are many aspects of personal injury lawsuits that come into play. Our lawyers will consider all the evidence, liable parties, long-term disability costs, and different legal statutes that may apply in your case.
Bogin, Munns, & Munns will help you understand the answers to your questions and how Florida statutes may apply to your case.
Do I Need To File An Accident Report?
If your injuries occurred in a car accident, Florida Statutes § 316.066 states that the police officer who investigated the crash should file the accident report within ten days of completing the investigation.
The Other Motorist Did Not Have Insurance; What Should I Do?
Florida has a no-fault law (Florida Statutes § 627.7407), which means you can file a claim with your insurance company, even if you weren’t at fault for the crash. If your insurance policy will not adequately cover your losses, we can file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Do Personal Injury Cases Have a Statute of Limitations in Florida?
Yes, Florida has a statute of limitations in personal injury cases in Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). In most cases, personal injury lawsuits must be filed within four years of the injury. Some exceptions apply, so be sure to discuss the applicable statute of limitations in your case with your lawyer.
I Lost a Family Member. Can I File a Wrongful Death Suit?
We’re sorry you are facing such challenging times. Losing a family member can be devastating and have long-term impacts that you may not be able to see through your grief today. As your attorney, we can empathize with your loss, but we want to ensure that your entire family is cared for in the future.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we believe that being made whole means choosing to obtain the dreams you had before the accident. We can help you do this by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Am I Entitled to Recoverable Damages?
If you have suffered a catastrophic personal injury, you may be entitled to recover some of your losses. The types of damages that are considered recoverable come in three basic types: economic, non-economic, and punitive damages.
Economic damages include those that come with a receipt and have a clearly defined value, such as medical bills and the costs of repairing your car. Non-economic damages are more difficult to calculate, but your lawyer can help you determine their value. These damages include pain and suffering, disability, lost enjoyment of life, and others.
In rare cases, such as drunk driving incidents, the court may also award punitive damages. These do not compensate you for your losses, but instead are used to punish the defendant for particularly egregious or reckless behavior and discourage future similar behavior in others.
How Soon Will I Get My Settlement?
Getting your settlement will take time, even after all parties have agreed. All parties must sign releases. Our staff must validate accounts. It can be challenging to be patient when facing so many life-altering difficulties. Understand that our office wants to ensure we are doing all we can to deliver your settlement as quickly as possible.
