What Are the Elements of Negligence in a Personal Injury Claim?

Negligence has a similar meaning to “carelessness” and is the legal basis for most injury claims. Essentially, someone is negligent when they fail to act as a reasonable person would in a similar situation. Four legal elements are needed to prove negligence liability:

  • Duty of Care – Were you owed a duty by the other person? For example, drivers have a duty to obey traffic laws.
  • Breach of Duty – Did they violate their duty of care? For instance, running a red light would likely qualify.
  • Causation – Did the other party cause the accident? This means proving both factual and proximate causes.
  • Damages – Did you sustain injuries? This normally refers to a physical injury and/or financial losses.

Each element must be supported “by a preponderance of the evidence,” which means about a 51% likelihood (more likely than not). You can utilize evidence such as medical records, eyewitness accounts, expert analysis, photos and videos, and more.

Car Accidents

Thousands are hurt in Tampa crashes every year. Depending on the type of accident, you could suffer some pretty serious injuries. Some of the most common types of car accidents are:

If you are hurt in a car accident, you may need to file a claim against the other driver’s insurance company. If they refuse to pay your claim, our Tampa car accident attorneys will appeal your claim. We will try to settle your claim with the insurance adjuster, but if that doesn’t work, we may have no choice but to file a lawsuit against the driver.

Motorcycle Accidents

There are more motorcycles on the road in Florida than any other state. This is because of the amazing weather and open roads. Motorcycles have to share the road with a lot of other cars and trucks. This can make for very dangerous conditions.

Motorcycle accidents usually cause serious injuries since there’s nothing standing between the rider and the road other than a plastic helmet. You will likely need surgery and physical therapy.

In Florida, you have limited time from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. You really don’t want to wait this long. Contact our Tampa motorcycle accident lawyers right away to protect yourself.

Pedestrian Accidents

In Florida, a lot of people love to take walks. It’s warm out and the views are amazing. Knowing this, Florida has plenty of crosswalks so their pedestrians can safely navigate the streets of Tampa.

Even with crosswalks, pedestrians are struck by vehicles all the time. Drivers are careless and don’t always give enough attention to what’s going on around them. Some drivers even look at pedestrians as nothing more than an inconvenience.

Pedestrians involved in these accidents normally suffer serious injuries. A pedestrian injury lawyer will get you the compensation you need and deserve.

Uber Accidents

If you get injured in an Uber crash, you may have a claim against both policies. If the driver’s policy doesn’t cover all your injuries, the company’s policy is there, but you may need the representation of an Uber accident attorney to get full compensation.

Truck Accidents

Trucks on the road are a sign that the economy is moving. They help to get products and goods from one part of the country to another. These trucks can cause a dangerous accident based on their large loads that can create a deadly impact on you and your vehicle. When injured during a truck accident, it may be the fault of a trucker.

There are a variety of reasons that truck drivers cause accidents from fatigue, speeding, failure to stop, or even distracted driving. A Tampa truck accident lawyer can take your case against a trucker and battle a large trucking corporation for compensation.

Slip & Fall

Aside from auto accidents, slip and falls may be the most common type of personal injury case. Most falls take place on commercial properties. This can be at a store that has wet floors or maybe you’re in a hotel or restaurant that just mopped but didn’t properly alert patrons.

No matter where they take place, defendants usually have insurance to cover your injuries. A personal injury lawyer in Tampa can help you file your claim. A slip and fall lawyer can negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance adjuster while you focus on getting better.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death accidents are never easy. Losing a loved one unexpectedly in an accident that was not their fault is devastating. Workplace accidents, car accidents, product accidents, and various other types of accidents can lead to death. You do have rights as a family member to collect compensation on their behalf.

A wrongful death lawyer can take your case and negotiate a fair settlement that financially helps you to recover from the loss of your loved one. They will win your case and help you move forward after an accident has taken the life of your family member.

Personal Injury FAQs

Do I Have a Tampa Personal Injury Case?

In order to have a personal injury case, we will have to prove all four of the following factors:

  • The defendant had a duty of care to you
  • They breached this duty
  • You were injured
  • Your injuries resulted from their breach

In order to do this, it’s important that you do a couple of things. First, you always want to call the police after any sort of accident. The police will review the scene and create a police report. You will need this report down the road.

The second thing you want to do is seek medical treatment immediately following your accident. You need to make sure you’re okay. But you also need medical documentation to prove your injuries.

After your initial consultation, we will be able to determine if you have a case and help you proceed with filing a claim.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many Florida personal injury attorneys use a contingency-based fee to make their costs fair and affordable. But what does contingent-based payment mean? This arrangement means that you don’t owe anything upfront. Lawyers that use this arrangement only get paid after you receive your settlement.

This means that regardless of your financial standing, you have access to the legal help that you need. But, the contingency fee agreement does come with a few requirements. First, you must sign a written agreement outlining the expectations and payment. Second, the attorney must follow all of the Florida rules of professional conduct.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in Florida?

Within Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim depends on the case. Florida is one of the more generous states.

However, that doesn’t mean that you should wait to file your case. Acting quickly can have a substantial impact on your case and the potential for compensation.

How Much Money Can I Get on My Personal Injury Claim?

Personal injury claims can range between a few thousand dollars to millions, depending on the circumstances of the case. Because your case is unique from any other, there is no way to know exactly how much you should expect in return.

That’s why our lawyers are willing to provide a free assessment. During that assessment, we will learn more about your case and give you a rough estimation of the value of your claim.

How Long Will My Personal Injury Case Take?

Unfortunately, it is not easy to put a specific time frame on any personal injury case. Some resolve quickly, taking just a few weeks while others can take months or even years. The time frame depends largely on the damages and extent of the injury.

Another aspect that can impact the time frame on a personal injury case is how easy it is to determine liability and how many parties are involved.

My family can't thank them enough

I can’t say enough good things about Winters and Yonker! Shayla, Patrick and Matt are very professional and a wonderful team! I am very glad I made this choice to hire them! They took care of everything for me while helping me fight to get the correct medical care that I needed! Myself and my family can’t thank them enough for all they have done for me!

Christina L.

The staff is totally professional and patient

Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers has been a pleasure to work with. This was my second time in 7 years that I needed attorney services. Attorney Yonker fights for what is just and right; he was my attorney. Justice and rightness are attributes that weigh big for me. I have not been disappointed. Fees are standard in the industry and the end result that arrives in your pocket is a result of time and knowledge, kindness and understanding to your needs. My accidents were totally different from each other and descent payments came out of both. The staff is totally professional and patient with helping you navigate the nuances of your case. Call as soon as you have an accident and ask for some guidance before you get too caught up in the numerous questions that will come from insurance companies. I know from experience that the insurance company wants nothing more than to get you to take a quick deal but this wold be a real disservice to your personal affairs. Winters & Yonker will give you the attention you deserve! I proudly say they are my attorneys!

I’m thankful to have been able to have such a kind, accommodating, and respected team of professionals in my corner.

They were always extremely helpful

They were so great in communicating everything about my case and very good about proactively communicating. I never had to call them to follow up on anything.

Professional every step of the way

No one ever wants to be in the position of needing an attorney, but after a recent accident, I contacted Marc Yonker. Mr. Yonker was fantastic! He discussed my situation with me at great length, and put my mind at ease. He and his staff have been efficient and professional every step of the way. I have actually referred a few people to him, who were in similar situations, and they have all had the same experience. Knowing that you have found the right law firm has made our difficult situation so much easier.
