What to Expect from Your Orlando Wrongful Death Case
Your lawyer will start by speaking with you to understand your situation. Our attorneys take an empathetic approach, learning about your financial burdens, mental pain, and other fallout from your loss.
Then, we will lay out your options, including filing an insurance claim or lawsuit. Our team will complete a thorough investigation of your loved one’s passing and the resulting damages. We will provide clear, honest advice, but you have the ultimate say over how we proceed with your case.
Our legal team negotiates for a fair settlement in every Orlando wrongful death case. We can file a lawsuit against at-fault parties if this does not produce an award. Should liable parties still refuse to pay you fairly, we’re prepared to take your case to trial.
You will not pay for our services upfront. Other firms might ask for a lump sum payment at the beginning or charge fees by the hour. We don’t. Bogin, Munns & Munns will only receive a fee if we get compensation for you.
Legal Arguments in Orlando Wrongful Death Cases
Some legal arguments we have made in wrongful death cases include:
- That a property owner failed to repair or remedy a hazard on the property
- That a negligent driver engaged in dangerous driving, such as texting and driving
- A pet owner failed to monitor or secure a dog
- A manufacturer produced a defective or improperly repaired vehicle/vehicle part
- A city failed to repair a defective street sign or traffic light

How Long do I Have to Take Action in My Case?
When filing an insurance claim, you must keep to the company’s deadline. However, the story is different if you decide to file a lawsuit. You generally will have two years to file this kind of legal action in Florida. Florida Statutes § 95.11 states that personal representatives of the deceased can file these lawsuits.
If you fail to file the lawsuit in time, the court could throw out your case. You could lose your right to pursue compensation.
