If a drunk driver caused an accident that injured you or a loved one or led to a fatality, you could have the right to personal injury or wrongful death compensation. In addition, the negligent driver should be held accountable for their actions. Our Orange City drunk driving accident lawyer will help you file an insurance claim or lawsuit.
At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we know how challenging the days and weeks after an accident can be. We also know you only have a limited amount of time to pursue the at-fault driver. So our law firm will review your case at no cost and help you start fighting for compensation immediately.
How We Will Prepare Your Drunk Driving Accident Case
You do not have to deal with the details of building a solid case on your own. When our legal team handles your drunk driving accident case, we will:
- Conduct a thorough investigation
- Compile documentation and evidence
- Handle all case-related communication
- Consult with expert witnesses
- Clarify legal and insurance language
- Negotiate a fair and appropriate settlement
- Represent you at trial, if needed
Our Orange City attorneys will always ensure you understand your case’s progress. We also make sure you receive regular updates on its progress.
Our Investigation Will Prove the Legal Components of Negligence
To hold the at-fault driver liable for your financial expenses and losses, our law firm will document their negligence. Our investigation will prove the driver:
- Owed you a duty of care
- Breached their duty
- Caused your accident
- Caused financial consequences
You should not have to endure financial hardship because someone else decided to drive under the influence of alcohol. Our law firm will obtain evidence to prove their intoxication and your right to compensation.
Build a Solid Evidence File
The evidence file we build for you can help us resolve your case with a settlement rather than a trial. Items we obtain for your evidence file can include:
- Car accident report
- Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests
- Medical records and bills
- Written prognosis
- Proof of income
- Photos and videos
- Eyewitness statements
- Lay witness reports
While you focus on your physical recovery, our legal team will focus on fighting for the best possible financial recovery for you.

Our goal is to ensure your case is not undervalued or underpaid.

- Ambulance fees

You can also recover the costs of therapy and rehabilitation and the costs of any mental health care required to cope with accident-related trauma.

In addition to your medical bills, your injuries can create a range of additional damages. Our drunk driving accident lawyer will request compensation for the following:
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We also request compensation for the wages you cannot earn when your injuries prevent you from returning to work. Finally, we recover the costs of repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle.
Compensation for Surviving Family Members
Our legal team knows nothing can atone for the loss of a beloved family member. However, we also know the driver whose negligence led to their demise should cover your family’s resulting costs. Therefore, we pursue compensation for the costs of their funeral and burial.
In addition, we request compensation for a range of losses, including the loss of:
- Your loved one’s financial support
- Your loved one’s familial contributions
- Consortium, companionship, and guidance
In addition to ensuring your survivor’s action is accurately assessed, we ensure it is filed on time. We also ensure the appropriate family member takes this action — in most cases, the decedent’s parents, spouse, or children.

Your Time is Limited to File a Lawsuit Against the Drunk Driver
Compliance with the filing deadline is an important part of your case. Failure to file your lawsuit on time could leave you unable to file it. However, with enough notice from you, our team can ensure you do not run out of time to take your case to court if needed.
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a): The personal injury statute of limitations is generally four years from the date of the accident.
- Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d): The wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of a loved one’s demise.
Many factors of your accident can create exceptions to the statute of limitations exceptions. A misunderstood or misinterpreted filing deadline can be costly. It might even lead to its dismissal. The best way to ensure your case is filed on time is to let our law firm handle it.
The Benefits of Our Contingency-Fee Basis
We offer legal services and support to injured clients at no upfront or out-of-pocket costs. Our firm will even cover the costs of any fees or expenses related to preparing your case. Instead of hourly fees and a hefty retainer, we receive a percentage of the compensation we recover for you. In addition, you owe us no fees if you are not awarded a financial settlement or verdict.
