When the negligence of others causes you catastrophic injuries in Orlando, you may have various options for legal recourse against the responsible parties.
An attorney from Bogin, Munns & Munns can guide you through the legal process and help you potentially recover all available damages.
Compensation in a Catastrophic Injury Case
The compensation that you might be eligible to receive in a catastrophic injury case depends on your individual circumstances. The severity and types of injuries that you suffered, along with the permanent effects of those injuries on your personal and professional life, can determine the type and amount of compensation that you may be able to claim.
Catastrophic injuries involve extremely serious injuries that may result in permanent disabilities, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Loss of limbs, eyesight, or hearing
- Internal organ damage
- Widespread and severe burns
- Multiple broken bones
Compensation in a catastrophic injury case will typically include payment of the costs of past and future medical care to treat your injuries. Lost income from an inability to work and loss of future earnings and earning capacity also may be at issue if your injuries prevent you from working in the future.
Other types of compensation might include damages for physical pain and suffering, emotional stress and mental trauma, and loss of the ability to engage in certain activities or generally enjoy life.

Proving Negligence in Your Catastrophic Injury Claim
Most catastrophic injuries claims are based on establishing the negligence of another party or a careless disregard for the safety of others. You must provide proof of four separate elements of negligence to prove that the other party should be liable for compensating you for your injuries.
These elements include proof that:
- The other party owed you a legal duty of care.
- The other party violated that legal duty of care.
- You suffered a catastrophic injury due to the other party violating this duty of care.
- You suffered damages, whether economic or non-economic, as a result of the conduct of the responsible party.
Forms of proof you can use to back up these claims might include photos of your injuries, medical records, video footage of the incident, and witness accounts.

Affording Legal Services in Your Catastrophic Injury Case
We offer all injury victims and their families a free consultation to determine whether you have a valid legal claim stemming from your accident. We know that finances can be a concern, especially when you have large medical bills to pay and may be unable to work, perhaps permanently.
With that, Bogin, Munns & Munns works on a contingency fee, which means that your attorney collects no fees from you until you receive a settlement or damages award in your case.
Time Limits on Your Catastrophic Injury Case
Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a) generally gives injury victims four years to file their lawsuits related to their accidents in court. This filing deadline, or statute of limitations, can apply whether you suffered catastrophic injuries in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, an incident of medical malpractice, or another type of accident.
Some exceptions do apply to this general rule. However, if you miss this deadline, then you risk being unable to collect any compensation from the parties who are responsible for causing your injuries. As a result, getting legal advice about the deadlines that apply to your case and your next steps can be essential to a positive outcome in your case.
