The History of the Channel District Neighborhood in Tampa, FL

The Channel District started as Tampa’s shipping and warehousing center. However, it declined in the 1970s as development in downtown Tampa and Ybor City drew businesses and residents away from the port.

In the 1980s and 1990s, the Tampa Port Authority conducted ambitious redevelopment projects to convert the area from an industrial center to a commercial one. The area now hosts some of the city’s best-known sites, including Sparkman Wharf and The Florida Aquarium.

Our Personal Injury Law Firm’s Primary Practice Areas

Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers helps Channel District residents seek compensation after being injured in accidents resulting from someone else’s actions. Our firm’s primary practice areas include:

Car Accidents

Florida’s no-fault insurance system limits when car accident victims can pursue compensation from at-fault drivers. But when you suffer a significant permanent injury, you can sue the at-fault driver. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers knows Channel District roads and can explain your crash to insurers to get fair compensation.

Construction Accidents

The Channel District invests billions of dollars in residential, commercial, industrial, and road construction projects. However, construction workers have a higher risk of getting injured in a workplace accident than almost any other type of worker in the U.S.

Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers helps workers to identify and pursue any and all relevant injury claims after construction accidents. These may include third-party claims against defective equipment manufacturers and careless drivers.

Motorcycle Accidents

The Channel District has beautiful weather that draws motorcyclists. However, Florida is a dangerous state for motorcyclists, and Tampa riders can get hit by careless drivers in lane-change, rear-end, and left-turn crashes. 

Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers have experience fighting negligent drivers and their insurers to secure fair compensation for injured motorcyclists.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Florida law requires businesses and individuals to take reasonable steps to protect guest safety. As a result, cruise ships, shops, restaurants, bars, and office buildings can be held liable for injuries resulting from tripping and slipping hazards. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers stands up to careless businesses to get fair compensation for slip and fall accidents.

Truck Accidents

Heavy trucks combined with busy city streets often lead to truck accidents that produce catastrophic injuries. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers will fight for you to receive maximum compensation after you get injured when trucking companies negligently maintain, load, or operate their trucks.

Wrongful Death

Florida gives the relatives of a deceased victim the right to pursue compensation and justice from those responsible for their loved one’s death. This way, plaintiffs can recover compensation for their lost financial support and companionship. Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers fights for your family after you lose a loved one due to someone else’s actions.

Damages Available in Channel District Personal Injury Cases

Florida law allows you to seek compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include the financial costs of your injuries, such as past and future medical expenses and income losses. Non-economic damages cover the human cost of your injuries, including pain, suffering, disfigurement, and disability. 

Florida formerly had damages caps that limited the non-economic damages you could pursue in wrongful death and medical malpractice actions. But the Florida Supreme Court found these caps unconstitutional because they deprived certain accident victims of full and fair compensation for their injuries.

What Does It Cost To Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Hillsborough County?

Most Hillsborough County personal injury attorneys charge a contingent fee, allowing you not to pay any legal fees unless the lawyer settles or wins your case. As a result, you can save your resources for your medical care and living expenses until your claim gets paid.

Statute of Limitations in Florida Personal Injury Cases

Florida requires injured parties to bring a lawsuit for negligent or intentional harm within two years of the incident. This two-year deadline came into effect on 3/24/2023 with the passage of a new tort reform law. Prior to this, there was a four year statute of limitations. This longer deadline still applies in cases involving accidents that happened before 3/24/2023.

Courts must dismiss any case filed after the deadline unless you meet a statutory exception to Florida’s statute of limitations. You should speak to Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, as soon as your health allows so you do not miss any important deadlines.

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.

Winters and Yonkers has been a legend of the Tampa Bay personal injury Attorney community for a long time. I was in a car accident recently with my husband, we suffered back and neck pains after two days and thought to get someone’s help. I found Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers through a google search and called them right up. The same day Mr. Winters contacted both of us, listened, and was compassionate to our situation. He helped us through the entire process including getting me seen by a Doctor so we could heal our injuries correctly, and we got our medical bills reduced! Bill Winters, my case manager, and the entire staff were very knowledgeable and exceptional at their work. We would like to express my sincere gratitude to them and recommend them without any hesitation to anybody who needs help, don't try and fight the at fault's insurance on your own. If you're injured and need someone to protect your rights you won't find a better Attorney than Bill Winters at Winters & Yonkers!-Geneva, Tampa FL#personalinjurylawyer #caraccidentlawyer #tampainjuryattorney

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👏👏👏👏
