Bogin, Munns & Munns Helps Truck Accident Victims Pursue Compensation for Their Losses
Bogin, Munns & Munns understands how truck accident cases work in Florida, despite the somewhat complex rules that apply.
Under §627.7407 of the 2019 Florida Statutes, the state operates on a no-fault car accident system. Under this system, your first claim after a truck accident may be through your own insurance company, up to the limit of your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage.
You may need to meet certain qualifications before you can file a fault-based case to pursue damages against the responsible party for amounts not covered by your PIP.
Bogin, Munns & Munns can help you navigate this system and pursue the responsible party’s insurance company for the full extent of your damages if you qualify.
During your case review and initial consultation with a member of our Bogin, Munns & Munns Leesburg truck accident team, we can explain your options based on the facts of your case.
