Driving while intoxicated is negligent. Driving while intoxicated and causing an accident is egregious. If you or a loved one suffered harm because of a drunk driver, our Gainesville drunk driving accident lawyers are ready to serve you.

Bogin, Munns & Munns has over 40 years of experience we’re ready to put to work for you. Our personal injury lawyers can handle your case while you focus on your recovery.
You Can Start a Free Case Review with Our Gainesville Drunk Driving Accident Team
We encourage you to call our team and participate in a free case review. Here, we can:
- Get your side of the story. We will determine what caused your accident and learn how it impacted your life.
- Discuss what evidence could support your case. As your case unfolds, you will come into possession of evidence. We’ll explain the benefits of keeping your injury-related billing statements and invoices. Photos of your vehicle’s damage help, too.
- Explain your case’s possible strategy. After listening to your story, we’ll explain what legal measures could secure compensation. We may file a claim or lawsuit to recover what you need.
Your first case review is your chance to ask us any questions about your situation. We’re committed to addressing each of your concerns.
Seek Medical Attention for Your Injuries
We encourage you to seek medical attention as soon as possible after getting hurt. Medical treatment does more than help you recover from your injuries; it connects your condition to the incident itself.
Even if you did not have to have emergency medical care or think your injuries are minor, see a doctor immediately. Only a physician can assess your injuries and any related conditions that may follow.
Plus, if you delay or refuse medical treatment, an insurer could argue that you worsened your injuries. They may then try to undervalue or outright deny your claim. Protect your health and your right to seek compensation by seeking medical treatment. Also, make sure to follow through with a doctor-prescribed treatment plan.
You Generally Have Four Years to File Your Lawsuit
Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) notes that you have a limited time to file your lawsuit. As noted, you typically have four years to file your case. You have less time if you’re filing on behalf of a late loved one.
While the statute of limitations applies to most cases, certain exceptions could alter your filing deadline, per Florida Statutes § 95.051. In either case, to protect your right to damages, we recommend consulting our team as soon as possible. This way, you can file your case before the deadline expires.

Our Gainesville Drunk Driving Attorneys Will Manage Each of Your Case’s Legal Obligations
You can trust our team to:
Collect Any New Evidence That Emerges
We don’t just investigate your case and then rest on the evidence we collect. As your case progresses, new evidence may emerge. We’ll gather and preserve such evidence, including:
- Video footage of your accident
- Witness accounts
- Experts’ testimony
- The police report
- Toxicology reports
In a drunk driving accident case, evidence of the motorist’s intoxication may also be valuable.
Witness accounts can confirm the drunk driver’s role in your accident. Witnesses may have seen the motorist drinking beforehand or viewed the accident happen. We may also consult with expert witnesses, such as accident reconstruction specialists and healthcare providers.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement with the Insurance Company
We’ll negotiate for everything you deserve from the liable insurance company. However, insurance companies want to make money, not pay injured claimants’ damages.
If the liable parties refuse to settle, then we’ll take your case to trial.
