Potential Compensation for a Brain Injury and Paralysis
Brain injuries and paralysis often require ongoing medical care. For example, you or a loved one may need physical rehabilitation for years. Other forms of therapy, such as speech and cognitive therapy, may also be necessary. Years of these treatments can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
You deserve a settlement that accounts for your future losses, as well as your immediate ones. We can calculate your current and future damages to ensure we pursue fair compensation.
You may stand to recover:
- Medical expenses
- Ongoing care costs
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of quality of life
If you lost a loved one due to a brain injury, you can file a wrongful death case. While compensation cannot undo your emotional anguish, it can alleviate your financial concerns. Recoverable damages in a wrongful death case include:
- Funeral expenses
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Your loved one’s pain and suffering
- Your loved one’s companionship
- Your lost wages (if you took time off to help your loved one)
We can calculate your losses while you celebrate your loved one’s life with your family.
You Have a Limited Time to File Your Civil Lawsuit
Bogin, Munns & Munns resolves most injury cases through insurance settlements. That’s because we understand Florida’s no-fault laws and how they apply to claimants’ damages.
However, we may file a lawsuit to recover what you need. You have a limited time to do so. Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) generally gives you four years to file a personal injury lawsuit. Under a similar statute, you typically have two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit.
This might seem like ample time, but building a case can take longer than you expect. We can begin working on your case immediately after you call for your free consultation.

We Will Prove That Negligence Caused Your Accident and Injuries
When we take on your case, we will investigate your accident to hold the at-fault party responsible. This requires showing:
The At-Fault Party Owed You a Duty of Care
First, we must identify who owed you a basic duty of care. For example, property owners have to maintain their premises, so they are reasonably safe for guests, invitees, and patrons.
Drivers have to follow traffic laws and exercise caution to keep others safe on the road. Even manufacturers have a responsibility to design safe products for their consumers.
The Other Party Violated Their Duty of Care
When a responsible party fails to uphold their duty of care, they become liable for any losses that result from their negligence.
For example, a property owner may fail to put up warning signs around a hazard on their premises. A driver may make a poor judgment call when making a U-turn. Even a manufacturer may neglect to conduct ample safety inspections of their manufacturing facilities.
The Other Party Caused Your Accident and Injuries
Now, we must show that because the other party violated their duty of care, they caused your condition. We can gather evidence to link the responsible party’s actions to your accident. Supporting evidence may include police reports, traffic camera footage, and eyewitness statements.
You Incurred Injury-Related Damages
Finally, we must show that you incurred various losses as a result of your condition. We will use your personal testimony, your damages’ invoices and receipts, and expert testimony to prove this element.
Proving negligence on your own isn’t easy – especially when struggling with a debilitating condition. This is where our Gainesville brain injury and paralysis lawyers come in. We will manage everything your case requires while you focus on what matters most: your future.
