We Will Fight for the Fair Value of Your Case
Many accident victims want to understand what their case may be worth. Essentially, your case value could vary depending on the following factors:
- The severity of your injuries
- The cost of your medical care
- The extent to which the injury has affected your ability to work
- The extent to which the injury has impacted your life and everyday routine
So, we will work to understand each of these factors in your situation. Then, we will put a value on both your financial and non-financial losses and seek all available compensation through an insurance claim or lawsuit.
When we assess your case value, we will determine a number that reflects your past, present, and future losses. This means that we will seek compensation for any future medical care that you may require in order to treat your injuries, in addition to compensation for past expenses.

Going Beyond PIP After an Orlando Car Accident
When a car accident happens in a no-fault state, such as Florida, the parties involved typically first turn to their own insurance’s personal injury protection (PIP) coverage to reimburse them, per Florida Statutes § 627.736. They typically seek reimbursement for 80% of their medical bills and 60% of their lost wages, regardless of who was at fault.
PIP insurance can be helpful for less serious injuries and accidents, where a claimant can recover and return to work again within a relatively short time frame. However, PIP policies have a maximum amount that will be covered. Many Florida PIP plans are capped at the minimum coverage amount of $10,000, although the exact limit of your PIP can be found in the details of your policy.
If you have been involved in an accident, you may be able to receive compensation from the responsible party for your remaining damages in a personal injury lawsuit.
Proving Negligence in a Car Accident Case
Proving negligence in a car accident case can be challenging. While every car driver owes other drivers and road users a basic duty of care, the plaintiff must typically prove that the other driver was negligent in a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
Driver negligence can include a violation of traffic laws, such as:
- Failure to yield
- Not stopping at a red light or stop sign
- Making an illegal turn or lane change
- Not using lights at night
- Rear-ending the car in front of them
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- And more
Negligence can also occur if a car or car component malfunctions and causes an accident, such as a defective tire that bursts on the road. In this case, a negligent parts manufacturer or mechanic could be liable for the accident.
Bogin, Munns & Munns can investigate your case and identify the liable party responsible for your injuries when we represent you.
How We Build Evidence in a Car Accident Case
Another driver’s negligence might be obvious to you, but proving it in court calls for evidence. Evidence in a car accident case may include:
- Photos or videos from the scene of the accident
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Security or traffic camera footage, if available
- Your medical records
- Testimony from accident reconstruction experts
- And more
When you work with Bogin, Munns & Munns, one of our car accident lawyers serving Orlando can collect evidence to support your case. We may be able to help you build a case, communicate with insurance companies on your behalf, and even obtain expert witnesses if needed while you can concentrate on getting better and getting your life back.
Our Lawyers Can Help with a Rollover Accident in Orlando
Rollover accidents account for nearly 28% of all deaths from passenger vehicle crashes, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Rollover accidents are more common in SUVs and trucks. This is due to the high center of gravity of these vehicles.
When a vehicle rolls, it is common for the windows to break and the roof to crush. When the windows break, it is far more likely that a passenger can be partially or completely ejected during the rollover sequence. Additionally, when the roof crushes, the occupant space inside the vehicle becomes smaller, thus resulting in a higher probability of serious head injuries to the passengers.
The consequences of a rollover accident can be severe. A rollover accident can cause serious injuries (such as brain injuries) or even death to the occupants of a vehicle. Our injury lawyers and product liability lawyers have represented many of those who have been injured due to defective products, and we will continue to offer our experience and knowledge to make sure each client receives the compensatory damages they deserve.
