Building a Case for Negligence
Before you can recover compensation for the damages resulting from your personal injury, you must be able to establish a case for negligence.
Typically, negligence is established when evidence proves the following elements:
- Duty of care: Someone owed you a duty to act in the way a reasonable person would in order to keep you from harm or injury.
- Breach of duty: This person failed to fulfill their duty of care toward you.
- Causation: Their breach of duty caused your injury.
- Damages: Your injury resulted in your sustaining damages
The legal team at Bogin, Munns & Munns can help you establish these elements of negligence in your case when we represent you. Call us today at (407) 578-9696 so we can start the process of building your case.

- Photos and other evidence from the crime scene
- Videos from surrounding surveillance cameras, if available
- Witness testimonies
- Wage statements from your employer
- Written reports from experts in a variety of fields (medical, economic, vocational, and more)
The evidence we gather may give us help establish how the accident happened, who caused it, the extent of your injuries, and the losses you have endured.

Working With the Insurance Company and Civil Court
Once negotiations begin, the insurance company will choose to either accept the demands we have outlined, deny your claim, or issue a counteroffer.
If the insurer denies your claim or refuses to agree to what we deem a fair settlement for your injuries, we are able and willing to file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf.
If we take the defendant to civil court, a judge or jury will determine whether you are entitled to the damages you are seeking, and what the value of those damages should be.
There Is a Time Element to Consider
Florida enforces a statute of limitations with regard to personal injury cases. According to Florida statute, you have around four years from the date you were injured to file a lawsuit against the defendant. For wrongful death cases, the statute of limitations is just two years. If you allow the statute of limitations to expire in your case, it may prevent you from recovering compensation in a lawsuit.
A member of our team can discuss what legal deadlines pertain to your case when you call for a free consultation.
