How Our New Port Richey Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help If You’ve Been Assaulted

How Our New Port Richey Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help If You’ve Been Assaulted

The person who assaulted you might face criminal charges for the harm they’ve caused. However, that won’t help to make things right with you – the victim. Fortunately, assault victims in Florida can take legal matters into their own hands.

You have the right to file a civil assault lawsuit against the person who hurt you, as well as other individuals who put you in harm’s way. However, getting compensation is often easier said than done.

That’s where our New Port Richey personal injury law firm can help.

By hiring our law firm, you won’t just level the playing field against tough adversaries. You’ll give yourself the edge you need to get the best possible results. We’re powerhouse litigators with one goal: to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the clients we represent. You’ve been wronged. We’re here to fight to make things right.

Hiring our law firm will also give you a chance to focus on your road to recovery so that you can get back on your feet and begin to move forward with your life.

While you do that, our top-rated New Port Richey trial attorneys will:

  • Conduct an independent investigation into your assault
  • Gather and analyze critical pieces of evidence – including photographs, witness statements, clothing worn at the time of the attack, video recordings, and police reports
  • Determine if someone other than the person who assaulted you might also be liable for your injuries
  • Defend against allegations that you initiated the incident or share responsibility for your injuries
  • Enter negotiations armed with strong, compelling legal arguments and the evidence needed to secure a swift and meaningful settlement offer
  • Prepare your assault injury case as if it’s going to trial in the event that your attacker refuses to accept responsibility for what they’ve done

Our New Port Richey law firm works on contingency. Getting assaulted can be expensive – we don’t want the cost of a lawyer to add to your stress. You only pay for our top-rated legal services if we win your civil assault injury case.

What Do I Have To Prove To Win an Assault Injury Case in Florida?

An assault occurs when someone else threatens you and has the present ability to cause harm. You don’t have to be physically harmed to be assaulted. That’s battery.

Battery occurs when someone intentionally makes harmful or offensive physical contact with you against your will.

Assault and battery are intentional torts. Simply put, you bring a lawsuit and argue that you got hurt because of someone else’s intentionally harmful actions.

To win an assault injury case, you have the burden of proving:

  • Another person intentionally threatened you
  • That person had the present ability to cause harm, and
  • You were reasonably fearful for your safety as a result.

To win a battery injury case, you have the burden of proving:

  • Another person made harmful or offensive contact
  • With your body without your consent
  • That person’s actions were intentional, and
  • You suffered injuries as a result.

Many times, a battery is described as a completed assault. If you can prove your civil assault and battery injury claims by a preponderance of the evidence, the person who attacked you can be held legally (and financially) responsible for the harm you’ve suffered.

We Handle All Types of Assault Injury Cases in New Port Richey, FL

Sometimes you know the person who assaults you. Other times, an attacker can be a perfect stranger. No matter the circumstances, Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers will be there to help you fight for monetary justice.

Our assault injury attorneys in New Port Richey represent clients in cases involving:

  • Domestic abuse
  • Bullying
  • Muggings
  • Bar fights
  • Brawls
  • Police brutality
  • Sexual assault

Call the police immediately after you’re assaulted in New Port Richey, Florida. Then get to the closest hospital for emergency medical care. The sooner you get checked out, the stronger your claim for damages will be. Your medical record can help to establish an important causal link between the assault (or battery) and your resulting injuries.

Are Assaults Common in New Port Richey, Florida?

According to, New Port Richey gets a C+ when it comes to crime. This is due, in part, to the fact that New Port Richey has higher crime rates than the national average.

Assault, in particular, is particularly commonplace in New Port Richey.

Nationally, the rate of assaults is 282.7 for every 100,000 residents. In New Port Richey, the rate of assaults is 448.3 for every 100,000 residents.

Who Else Could Be Liable for My Injuries If I’m Assaulted in New Port Richey?

Liability for an assault doesn’t always lie exclusively with the person who attacked you. This is particularly true if you are assaulted on someone else’s property or by someone who was working at the time of the incident.

For instance, property owners in Florida have a responsibility to prevent reasonably foreseeable harm on their premises. This can be achieved by implementing security measures – like security cameras, bouncers or doormen, or by training staff on how to de-escalate dangerous situations. If you get assaulted on someone else’s property and the owner could have potentially prevented it, they might be liable for your injuries.

Ultimately, liability for your assault will depend on the specific facts and circumstances of your situation.

Potentially liable parties might include:

  • Business owners
  • Coaches
  • Teachers
  • Schools
  • Clergy
  • Landlords
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Nursing homes
  • Employers

Our New Port Richey assault injury attorneys will work hard to identify all potentially liable parties. Once liability is clear, we’ll work toward a meaningful financial award that holds all at-fault parties fully accountable.

We’ll Help You Seek Compensation for Your Assault Injuries

As the victim of assault and battery in New Port Richey, you may be dealing with some very painful and traumatic injuries, such as:

Don’t hesitate to reach out to our law office in New Port Richey to find out how we can help you move forward toward a meaningful financial recovery after you’ve been assaulted.

What Damages Can I Get in an Assault Injury Lawsuit in Florida?

Economic damages can be awarded to offset the financial costs of your assault injuries.

This can include money for:

Many long-term consequences of an assault injury don’t come with a price tag. Instead, they’re incredibly personal and impact a victim’s life for years to come (if not forever).

For these types of injuries, non-economic damages can be awarded.

Examples include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Chronic physical pain
  • Scarring
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Mental anguish
  • Depression
  • Embarrassment
  • Loss of consortium

Since you were the victim of an intentionally harmful act, punitive damages might be available, as well. However, a jury would have to find that the defendant’s actions warrant punishment, which might be the case if the injuries you’ve sustained are catastrophic or resulted in the death of someone you love.

What’s the Statute of Limitations For Civil Assault Injury Lawsuits in New Port Richey, Florida?

Under Florida law, the statute of limitations for civil assault and battery claims is four years.

This gives you until the fourth anniversary of the date you were threatened or physically attacked to file a lawsuit against your attacker or other liable parties.

If you’ve lost a family member because an assault resulted in wrongful death, you’ll have just two years to initiate a legal claim for damages.

Don’t let the statute of limitations run out. Once it does, you’ll give up the right to file a claim and secure the compensation you need and deserve.

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👏👏👏👏

I was searching for a local car accident lawyer near me after I was rear-ended by someone earlier this month. I was being pushed around by the at-fault driver's insurance company and needed some legal help.I found Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers through Google Maps and decided to get a free consult. I called the Tampa office of this firm and talked to them about my options. I briefly told them of my situation and was connected to Bill shortly after. He was extremely informative and was very professional. By the end of the same day he had me meet with a private investigator and referred me to a chiropractor nearby. Great customer service, and I look forward to how well my settlement will turn out. I know I am in good hands!
