Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, Handles All Types of Personal Injury Cases in Palm Harbor

Our Palm Harbor personal injury lawyers have experience handling all types of cases. With over 119 years of collective legal experience, we can help you with cases involving:

Car Accidents

Florida’s no-fault insurance laws can be confusing. Even though PIP is no-fault insurance coverage, your insurance company might deny your claim. You could also have a claim against the party who caused the accident, but you need to meet the serious injury threshold.

Our Palm Harbor car accident attorneys work diligently to pursue all sources of compensation for your car crash. By doing so, we maximize the amount of money you put in your pocket at the end of your case.

Motorcycle Accidents 

Motorcyclists are often treated unfairly by insurance companies. The companies blame the riders for causing accidents that are not their fault. Our Palm Harbor motorcycle accident lawyers understand these tactics and fight back to ensure you are treated with the respect you deserve. 

Wrongful Death 

The Florida wrongful death laws give family members a legal avenue to hold the party who caused their loved one’s death financially responsible for the damage they caused. A financial award does not compensate you for losing a family member. However, it can provide funds for the loss of financial support.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Injuries from slips, trips, and falls can severely disrupt your life. In some cases, the injuries can cause permanent impairments. At Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, we handle all types of premises liability claims, including cases involving residential homeowners, landlords, businesses, government entities, and commercial property.

Other personal injury practice areas that our attorneys handle include:

  • Bicycle accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Defective product claims
  • Boating accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction accidents
  • Child injuries
  • And many more

If you were injured, call Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers for a free consultation to discuss your case with one of our Palm Harbor personal injury lawyers.

What Types of Injuries Do Your Palm Harbor Personal Injury Attorneys Handle?

We handle cases involving all types of personal injury. Common types of personal injuries include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries and nerve damage
  • Traumatic brain injury and other head injuries
  • Neck injuries, including whiplash
  • Amputations and loss of limbs
  • Vision and hearing loss
  • Severe disfigurement
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe burns

An accident can cause numerous types of injuries. Our personal injury law firm works with medical specialists and other expert witnesses to assess the severity of your accident injuries. The severity of your injuries significantly impacts the value of your damages. 

How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Palm Harbor Personal Injury Attorney?

At Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers, our lawyers accept injury cases based on a contingency fee. Our attorneys’ fees are based on a percentage of the amount we recover in your case. Therefore, you do not pay any upfront attorneys’ fees when you hire our personal injury law firm in Palm Harbor.

An average contingency fee for a personal injury claim is 33% of the settlement amount. However, that amount could increase if the case goes to trial. Most cases settle through negotiations with the at-fault parties.

Contact us if you have questions about contingency fees and how they work in your specific situation. 

How Much Are My Damages Worth for a Personal Injury Claim?

The amount of money you receive for your case depends on many factors. Factors that impact how much a case is worth include:

  • The severity of your injuries
  • The type of injuries you sustained
  • The length of your recover
  • The total of your financial losses
  • Whether you sustained permanent impairments
  • The availability of insurance coverage
  • The parties involved in your case
  • Whether you are partially to blame for the cause of your injury

Another significant factor is whether you hire a Palm Harbor personal injury lawyer to handle your case. Insurance companies take advantage of injured parties who do not have an attorney. They intentionally pay less than the claim is worth because most people are unaware of the damages they can receive and how much those damages are worth.

What Are the Damages in a Palm Harbor Personal Injury Case?

Most personal injury victims can receive compensation for economic damages, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Out-of-pocket expenses
  • Personal care
  • Rehabilitative therapies

They can also receive money for their non-economic damages, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Impairments and disfigurements
  • Emotional distress
  • A decrease in quality of life
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

Our injury attorneys in Palm Harbor carefully review your case to determine all damages you and your family could receive. We evaluate cases for punitive damages and loss of consortium claims in addition to the above damages.

Florida’s Contributory Fault Law and Palm Harbor Personal Injury Cases

If you are partially to blame for causing your injury, Florida’s modified comparative fault law does not prevent you from recovering money for your claim unless you are 51% or more at fault. However, it does reduce the amount you receive by your percentage of fault. Therefore, if you are 10% to blame for a car crash, you can only receive 90% of the value of your damages.

Beware! Insurance companies like contributory fault because it can reduce their liability for your claim. Avoid making statements and conversations on record lines. An insurance adjuster could trick you into staying something the company intentionally misinterprets as admitting fault.

What Is the Deadline for Filing Lawsuits for Palm Harbor Personal Injury Claims?

Florida’s statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years after the injury date. The deadline to file a wrongful death lawsuit is also two years.

The court will likely dismiss the case if you do not file your lawsuit before the deadline. Avoid problems by contacting our office immediately after an injury or accident in Palm Harbor.

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!
