Frequently Asked Questions
What is commonly viewed as Pain and Suffering?
“Pain and Suffering” is a collective term that includes your injuries along with any form of mental anguish, emotional distress, or physical harm you may have endured. Many situations can cause pain and suffering, but the most common examples include becoming disabled, suffering post-traumatic stress or the loss of a loved one, or losing the ability to do regular physical tasks and activities up to and including the ability to perform your job. It can also include the inability to do prior activities as well due the other party’s negligence.
I was injured in an automobile accident and the other party died from their injuries. The other party is the one at fault. Can I still sue them?
In a sense, yes. Who you would be suing in this case is the “personal representative” of that person’s estate. In Florida, you would not sue the deceased person’s estate directly. If there is no estate opened for the person, and therefore no personal representative, you can pay a fee to file a petition in the county where the deceased person died in order to open up a Florida probate. You are filing to have an estate opened. The person’s insurance company is still obligated to defend the case and to pay you any money for which you are entitled for the accident. This does not change because the person died.
What is bankruptcy?
Bankruptcy is the process through which a party can legally eliminate or at least drastically reduce their amount of debt. There are different types of bankruptcy for different situations, but Chapters 7 and 13 are the most commonly filed.
What our clients are saying
I have received EXCELLENT service from BMM in handling my case. The local office in Melbourne has provided professional representation and consultation with my truck accident. Whenever I had any questions, most were handled with a phone call. If an appointment was needed, it was promptly scheduled. I feel very confident that if I have the need for any future legal representation, BMM will be my go-to firm...H. White**Review was posted on Google**
I was rear-ended while stopped at a red light on a Saturday afternoon. After several hours in an ER, I finally got home late that day and felt lost as to what I needed to do next. I called BM&M early on a Monday and my case manager and attorney have guided me through a maze of legal and medical issues. I can't praise them and the first of BM&M enough for what they have done to assist me!J. Keough**This review was posted on Google.com**
Garry Branch and John Watson at Bogin Munns took the time out to listen to our case in person. They helped us to make sure that we were able to get justice for all. I would like to thank the firm and Bogin Munns and Munns for standing up against BIG insurance and winning.T. Gabriel**Review was posted on Google**
