Taxi drivers provide a valuable service by helping Floridians travel from one location to another. When drivers fail to practice necessary safety measures, though, a ride can result in an accident. If this was the case for you or someone you love, our Melbourne taxicab accident lawyer can help you build a strong case for compensation.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we help you recover damages if a taxi driver was distracted while looking for fares or was speeding or driving erratically. We will investigate your accident and uncover its cause. Our goal is to identify the negligence that led to the collision and negotiate a favorable settlement so you can start putting your life back together.
Compensation You Can Receive for Your Injuries and Related Expenses
Recovering damages after a car accident is a complex legal matter. Florida Statutes § 768.81 cites the types of economic damages you can receive. Even with this guidance, it can be difficult to understand all the compensation you are entitled to on your own.
Our Melbourne personal injury attorney will ensure your case is accurately valued. We also make sure all accident-related expenses and losses are clear before we create a demand letter or start negotiating. Our goal is to get the best possible financial outcome for you.
We Assess Your Past, Current, and Future Monetary Losses
Some of the expenses we recover for you will have a finite value. Others are ongoing costs that must be accounted for when assessing your recoverable damages. These can include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional distress
Their impact can be felt long after the accident is over. Our assessment of your case will include their known and anticipated financial value.
You Could Be Entitled to Additional Compensation
Our legal team makes sure you recover a range of additional damages, if you qualify for them. They can include property damage or loss, life-changing disabilities, and disfiguring injuries. Our case assessment team will document their value with your mental and physical prognosis and documents that prove the accident’s impact on your life and health.
Surviving Family Members Could Receive Compensation
If a beloved family member lost their life in a taxicab accident, our compassionate legal service and support can help you recover damages. Wrongful death compensation can include:
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of your loved one’s income
- Loss of their domestic contributions
In most cases, wrongful death damages are recoverable by the decedent’s parents, spouse, or children. Exceptions allow other relatives to recover damages. Review your relationship with a team member to explore your wrongful death compensation options.

Florida Law Determines the Time You Have to File Your Melbourne Lawsuit
When you file a personal injury lawsuit in Melbourne, you must do so within the statute of limitations established by state law. You generally have two years from the date of the accident to meet the filing deadline. This timeframe also applies if you are filing a wrongful death suit if your loved one passed after the taxi accident.
Our taxicab accident lawyer serving Melbourne will explain the applicable state-mandated filing deadline and how it affects your case. They will also explain any exceptions that alter the filing deadline, according to Florida Statutes § 95.051. We will ensure your case is filed on time and protect you from the costly consequences of non-compliance.
Our Bogin, Munns & Munns Team Will Document Negligence and Liability
In a taxicab accident, there can be multiple at-fault parties. You could be entitled to compensation from the taxi driver, his employer, or the facility that repairs and maintain the taxi.
Our investigation will uncover all potentially liable parties by proving the following elements of negligence:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
Our evidence collection will prove these elements. Establishing negligence can also result in a financial settlement rather than a trial. While a trial in a personal injury case is rare, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial to obtain a favorable settlement.
