Securing Damages After a Titusville Bicycle Accident
If we work with you, the team from Bogin, Munns & Munns will work on proving your case through an investigation into your accident. We will need to show that the fault in the accident falls to the motorist who hit you, showing that their negligence caused the collision, and they are, therefore, liable. We will also need to document your injuries and financial losses, including the possibility of future expenses and losses as well as intangible losses. Doing so will allow us to seek a fair insurance payout to cover your damages such as:
- Treatment and related medical expenses
- Future medical needs and ongoing care costs
- Missed paychecks or other income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damages
- Additional out-of-pocket expenses
- Non-economic losses including pain and suffering
Per Florida Statutes 768.21, some bicycle accident victims who pass away from their injuries may have family who can take legal action in their case. This is known as a wrongful death action. The qualifying family members can seek damages based on their own losses following an accident. Our team can help if we believe you qualify.

Statute of Limitations on Filing a Civil Lawsuit in a Brevard County Court
The most common way we secure a payout for our clients is by negotiating a fair settlement with the insurance company that compensates them based on the value of their damages. Only occasionally do we take a case to trial to seek compensation. However, if this is necessary in your case, we will not hesitate to file the paperwork and take legal action against the driver who hit you.
Generally, we have four years from the date of your accident to file a civil suit in Brevard County per Florida Statutes 95.11. However, there is significantly less time to file some types of cases, including wrongful death actions. To ensure you have plenty of time to take legal action in your case, if it becomes necessary, contact Bogin, Munns & Munns as soon as possible following your Titusville injury accident.
