Meeting the Criteria for a Personal Injury Claim
The premise for any personal injury case is negligence. As the plaintiff, you need to prove that the party that caused your injury had a duty to keep you free from harm and that they failed to uphold this duty. You then need to prove that the defendant acted in a negligent manner that caused your injury. Finally, you need to prove an outcome of physical and/or mental and financial damages.
These elements of negligence represent the core framework for a personal injury case. As your legal representatives, a Gainesville personal injury lawyer on our team will do everything necessary to meet the above criteria and build a solid case for your right to recover damages.
Call Bogin, Munns & Munns today at (352) 332-7688 and tell us about your personal injury. We will listen and explain your options for moving forward.

Types of Damages You May Recover
Every personal injury case is different. Unique circumstances yield unique injuries and losses for the plaintiff. For this reason, we cannot speculate what types of damages—much less the value of those damages—until we know the details of your personal case. Once you are a client, our Gainesville personal injury lawyers can calculate your damages and demand a monetary settlement from the at-fault party.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Once we have determined the specific damages and their values, we will assemble this information in the form of a demand letter that we will send to the defendant’s insurance company. It is unusual for the insurer to accept and pay the demand as originally requested. More commonly, the adjuster will come back with a counter-offer, which is usually low.
At this point, our lawyers will begin the negotiation process, fighting to obtain a reasonable and agreeable settlement. If the insurance adjuster does not make a reasonable offer, we will file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and seek compensation from the defendant in civil court.
A Gainesville personal injury lawyer can also file a lawsuit if the insurance company outright denies your claim.
Florida’s Statute of Limitations
It is important to act quickly in a personal injury case. If you need to file a lawsuit, you only have two years to take action against the defendant.
Due to the statute of limitations, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible after your accident. Your chances of not missing this deadline improve when you give yourself—and your personal injury lawyer—more time to build your case. Furthermore, by hiring legal counsel soon after your accident, you give your attorney ample time to build your case, gather evidence, follow your medical progress, and gather witness evidence testimony early on. This provides you a wider selection of evidence, including sharper memories of accident details from key witnesses.
A Gainesville Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You
Our law firm is eager to help you get the compensation you deserve. We will put up a formidable fight against the insurance company and/or the defendant. All the while, we will treat you with respect, fairness, and dignity.
Keep in mind that we are a contingency fee law firm. We only charge you for legal fees when we win you a settlement or jury verdict on your behalf for your case.
