How Common Are Car Accidents in Town ‘n’ Country, FL?

Car accidents are one of the most common ways to get hurt in Florida. 390,700 motor vehicle accidents were reported to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) in 2022. Another 30,107 motor vehicle accidents were reported in the first two months of 2023.

Car accidents in Florida caused at least 3,434 fatalities and 248,724 injuries in 2022.

In Hillsborough County alone, 221 people were killed in traffic accidents in 2022. At least 19,276 people were injured in car crashes that year.

What is My Town ‘n’ Country Car Accident Injury Claim Worth?

There is no simple way to estimate the value of a personal injury case. All accidents are different, and all victims are unique. Typically, we begin by assessing the value of the financial costs associated with the accident.

That said, many different factors are relevant when calculating your case value, including:

  • The nature of your injuries
  • Your need for future medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Your physical pain and emotional suffering
  • Whether you lose time at work due to the accident
  • Whether your future earning potential will be impacted
  • Whether you will suffer any permanent disability
  • How the injury will impact your quality of life
  • Whether you share any blame for the accident

The circumstances of the accident will also be important. You may be entitled to additional damages if your injuries occurred due to someone else’s intentional wrongdoing or gross negligence.

What Types of Damages Are Available To Car Accident Victims in Town ‘n’ Country, FL?

Accident victims can pursue compensation for economic and non-economic damages under Florida personal injury laws.

While the types of damages available will vary from case to case, examples include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Physical therapy
  • Nursing care
  • In-home assistance 
  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Disfigurement 
  • Scarring 
  • Other types of personal losses, including anxiety, depression, PTSD

In Florida, you’ll first file a claim for compensation with your insurance company. Once you’ve reached your policy limits, however, you can seek compensation from the person responsible for the accident.

Damages sustained in a serious car accident can easily exceed the limits of your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. It’s important to consult an experienced attorney who can help you hold the responsible parties accountable for additional losses. To learn more, call Winters & Yonker Personal Injury Lawyers to schedule a free case review today.

Can I Recover Damages If I Share Some Blame for a Car Accident in Florida?

Shared fault is often an issue in car accident cases. Under the modified comparative fault laws in Florida, injured parties can lose compensation if they share some blame for the crash.

That said, Florida is a state where you can recover compensation so long as your not mostly responsible for the accident. If you are only partially responsible, your recovery will be reduced based on your percentage of fault. If you were 25% responsible and are awarded $100,000 in damages, you can take home $75,000. But being 51% or more at fault is a bar to recovery.

Be cautious when you’re dealing with the insurance company after an accident. It’s important not to admit blame because the insurance company will use those statements against you. If you’re being blamed, contact our law firm in Town ‘n’ Country to learn more about how we can protect you.

How Do I Establish Liability After a Car Accident in Florida? 

Florida is a no-fault insurance state. To recover any compensation above and beyond what your PIP insurance policy covers, you will have to prove that someone else was responsible for your injuries.

That almost always means proving negligence.

In a successful negligence case, you must establish:

  • The at-fault party’s legal duty of care (all drivers have a duty to drive carefully and obey traffic laws)
  • A breach of duty
  • Causation 
  • Damages 

You should expect the insurance companies to argue over who is responsible for your crash. Our lawyers can help you find evidence to prove your case. 

That evidence may include:

  • Police reports
  • Video footage
  • Statements from eyewitnesses
  • Citations issued in connection with the crash
  • Photos of the accident scene and damaged vehicles
  • Opinions from experts who can interpret evidence and offer insight into the cause of the crash

How Long Do I Have To File a Lawsuit After a Car Accident in Town ‘n’ Country, Florida?

Under Florida’s statute of limitations, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. The clock started running on the date of your accident. After the two-year limitations period ends, you can no longer sue the responsible party for damages.

Keep in mind, you may have more or less time to file based on the facts of your case.

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👏👏👏👏
