I knew I was in good hands

Having never been through litigation, I chose Winters and Yonker. I knew I had picked the right attorney to represent me from the beginning. The team at Winters and Yonker were great to work with and guided me through the process. The process was long, and I knew I was in good hands with my excellent communication and interactions with the team. In the end, we won an excellent settlement.

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!

They were extraordinary in their efforts

I had the pleasure of working with Marc, Kara, and Anthony, they were extraordinary in their efforts for my case. They were very professional and expressed great diligence on my behalf making sure my questions were answered and concerns were settled. I live over 2 hours away from the firm which was a concern for me however they quickly managed to make me feel like a priority going above and beyond regardless of the distance. I’m thankful to have been able to have such a kind, accommodating, and respected team of professionals in my corner.

I would highly recommend Winters & Yonker

I am extremely satisfied and feel very blessed after contacting Winters & Yonker to handle my case. The level of professionalism and genuine concern I have received from Bill Winters and his assistant Lauren Varner was second to none. They made my difficult situation much easier to deal with by sharing their courtesy and respect. I would highly recommend Winters & Yonker without any hesitation.

Gary H.

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. The only time I called was if I had a question and they were always extremely helpful and went above and beyond. Everyone at the firm I spoke with was great to work with especially Scott and Venessa. I would highly recommend Winters & Yonker!

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.

Personal Injuries

Personal injuries make up a range of accident injuries. You may be involved in a car wreck, workplace accident, slip and fall accident, amusement park accident, product accident or even a swimming pool accident that injures you. When your injuries are the fault of another, you need legal assistance from a skillful Tampa personal injury attorney to get you the compensation you deserve.

Our personal injury attorneys near you can determine if your injuries were a result of negligence by another person or company. We can get you a settlement for your medical bills and lost wages. We will win your case and help you recover after your personal injury accident.

More Info

Car Accidents

Thousands of people are hurt in Tampa car accidents 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’ll 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 have no choice but to file a claim against the driver.

More Info

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 a very dangerous situation.

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 personal injury lawyers in Tampa right away so you can protect your rights.

More Info

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 pay 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 Tampa pedestrian injury attorney will fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

More Info

Uber Accidents

A lot of us don’t know what we ever did before we had Uber. You can click a button on your phone and an Uber driver is at your doorstep in minutes. It’s cheap and convenient, but it can also be dangerous.

Your Uber driver is just as likely to get into an accident as you are. The vast majority of Uber drivers work other jobs and contract with Uber to make extra money. They are not professional drivers employed by a company in the same manner as a taxi service. As careful as they are, they’re only human.

Thankfully, Uber and its drivers carry auto insurance. If you get injured in an Uber accident, you need to file 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 expert Tampa uber accident attorney to get the compensation you deserve.

More Info

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 truck driver.

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 truck driver and fight a large trucking corporation for compensation.

More Info

Slip & Fall

Aside from car accidents, slip and falls may be the most common type of personal injury case. Most slip and 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, slip and fall defendants usually have insurance to cover your injuries. A personal injury attorney Tampa can help you file your claim. A Tampa slip and fall lawyer can negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance adjuster while you focus on getting better.

More Info

Wrongful Death

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

Tampa 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 fight to 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 Personal Injury Case?

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

  • The defendant owed you a duty of care
  • He breached this duty
  • You were injured
  • Your injuries were the result of his 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. An attorney 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 in Florida?

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

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

Why Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

If you were part of an accident or suffered an injury because of someone else’s carelessness, you probably need an attorney. Filing a lawsuit for a personal injury requires a special skill set and experience in navigating the complex court systems. Don’t file a personal injury lawsuit without a specialized attorney.

Hiring a lawyer will allow you to focus on your physical recovery, while they seek maximum compensation for your damages. Hiring an attorney is shown to increase your settlement by 200+% with little to no effort for the victim. For more information on why you should hire an attorney, read more here.

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 Do I Have to File a Claim?

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 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.

This was my first personal injury experience. I wanted to choose a law office I could trust. A friend of mine recommended the law offices of Winters & Yonker, Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa. Through the entire process Attorney Marc Yonkers was helpful and communication was stellar. I never felt out the loop. I felt confident throughout entire process. Which this month (Sept. 2023) they were able to settle my accident case successfully and to my 100% satisfaction. I cannot recommend Winters & Yonker and or Marc any higher. In short they are firm, fair, aggressive, responsive, super smart and know the numerous ins and outs of Personal Injury cases (which can be quite complicated). Upon hiring them you get a law firm that will leave you confident that your case will be handled expertly and with your interests front and center.

My wife and I are work in Mediation and Arbitration but know nothing about personal injury cases. When a young delivery Truck driver who was distracted by his phone hit us at full speed and rear-ended us as we were stopped in traffic on Wesley chapel. We knew we needed to hire the best lawyers with PI experience and expertise in the Tampa legal community that we could.From our first phone call with Bill Winters and then all the way through Trial preparation then Trial, we never felt any bad about our case because we knew Bill and the entire staff at Winters and Yonker would take care of us.Their dedication, innovation, motivation, reliability, unparalleled intellect, and exceptional skill as trial lawyers make them extraordinary individuals. My experience working with them was nothing short of exceptional. Experiencing a car accident is an ordeal that encompasses fear, trauma, and frustration. It's a life-changing event in anyone's life. There was no amount of money that could ever make me alright, because I would give any amount of cash to not have to go through the nightmare that the car accident was and continues to be.It took almost 2 years from the time of the car crash to go to trial, but ultimately the jury verdict that Bill Winters got for my family was worth fighting for. There were so many times over the course of the three years that we actively realized how amazing it was that we felt no anxiety or concerns or worries about our case, because Bill is truly outstanding!If you or anyone you know gets hurt in a car accident, call Winters and Yonkers RIGHT AWAY! And then rest assured that you, your family, or friends are being cared for by the ABSOLUTE BEST legal team in Tampa Bay. Thank you, Winters & Yonker!

Winters & Yonker law firm did excellent work with my injury case. Luckily, I was referred to Winters & Yonker from a good friend after I was injured in a car accident. I did some initial research about injury lawyers near me, but the reviews for this office really stood out to me in Tampa. I decided to call and after a single phone conversation, the choice was easy to make! Not only was everyone extremely professional, they made the entire process smooth and clear. I was at ease with each step of the way because they were always there to answer my questions and keep me informed of what was happening. All expectations were met and my settlement was exceeded. I got much more than I thought was even possible from the insurance company. I highly recommend the Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, and their team in Tampa to anyone in need of help after a car, truck, or motorcycle accident. You'll be in good hands!

I was injured in a car crash here in town. Since it was essentially a "he said she said" accident case the opposing insurance claimed it was a 50/50 fault. Even though it clearly could not have been my fault. However, Bill worked diligently to get me everything I was needed to get my life back. He worked to get me access to all the doctors I needed and medical treamtment for my neck and back. Plus, a large settlement amount. Bill even took the time to calm me down when I saw the initial amount and cost for seeing my medical bills piling up! He even managed to get them to reduce their bills significantly! Plus, I received as much as possible. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers in Tampa provided a great legal service. They were strait forward and honest about the approach, and communicated every aspect of the process. The firm took care of everything. I would 100% without a doubt recommend him if I knew someone that need a personal injury attorney. Given the circumstances of our introduction I hope I never have to, BUT Bill Winters will definitely be my first call if I'm ever injured again!

Everyone on their staff is amazing! Chris and Sara won my case and helped me out with an accident that occurred a few months back. They made the entire process so easy! They called with case updates but not too often where it was constant phone calls. It was just enough to know what was going on the whole time without being bombarded. Thankful for Tayler on their staff who helped inform me on why Winters and Yonker was the best choice to go with!

Highly recommend. Bill Winters and his staff took time to answer my questions, and handled my case in a timely and professional manner. I almost didn't contact a lawyer over my "small" injury case because I feared it would be so difficult and stressful. But he got me the settlement that my insurance company owed me, and I would never have been able to do that on my own. And with less stress that I anticipated. I'm glad I called them.

Winters and Yonker is who you want to go to when you get in a car accident because they will take care of you and won’t let you get low balled on your settlement. I got in a car accident where my back and shoulder was injured and I was referred to a attorney named Trevor. I appreciate Trevor for handling my case and keeping me informed with all the information I needed.

One of the best law firms in Tampa. My family was involved in a serious car accident. We went to that other personal injury firm with the two M's they were trying to make us settle the case quickly and they we're not listening to us with the arrogant attitude that they were the experts and we were just ignorant. We promptly fired them and then hired Winters & yonker. Our settlement was 5 times higher than what the MM wanted to settle for.I would like to thank Winters and Yonkers entire staff for a wonderful experience. They were all very knowledgeable and walked us through the whole process. We really felt like they cared, unlike the other firm.

I’m giving Winters & Yonker a shout out. My mother fell in Winn Dixie afew months ago. Her first choice wasMorgan & Morgan; however, after theinterview with them they decided not to take the case. My perception was that it was not a big enough case for them. I knew that she deserved to be compensated for her injuries, and I had mad faith in Winters & Yonker from using them in the past. They not only took the case but settled it in record time. Thanks Winters and Yonker, and I like to send a special thank you to Christopher Smith, who was never to busy when I needed answers. I would recommend your law firm to anyone. I found you to be ethical, professional, and respectful to my family, but most of all you will fight for the little guy. Much love and respect. God bless you all and your families👏👏👏👏
