Winter Garden is an expanding city with small-town feel, complete with a charming red-bricked downtown, a handful of picturesque parks and reasonably-priced real estate. Approximately 40,000 people call this city home, and it’s considered one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Central Florida.

This 17-square-mile area has seen marked growth in recent years, with the city prioritizing business incentives and housing development. Where there used to be just 14,000 residents in 2000, that figure has multiplied nearly three-fold. Situated just 30 minutes outside of Orlando, the city is no stranger to traffic congestion, which has meant an increase in auto accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian injuries.
Police in Winter Garden report more than 500 accidents a year – half of those resulting in injury – which is a notable uptick compared to recent years.
As the city focuses on drawing more restaurants, entertainment venues and hotels, it’s imperative that these businesses manage any possible hazards on site and do everything in their power to keep guests reasonably safe.Choosing a Winter Garden Injury Lawyer
Proving negligence is a key element of any personal injury claim. In order to do this, plaintiff (the injured party) needs to show the defendant (the alleged wrongdoer):
- Owed a specific duty of care to plaintiff;
- Breached that duty of care;
- Caused injury to the plaintiff.
On top of all that, plaintiff needs to prove he or she suffered damages as a result of that harm that can be both ascertained and compensated.
This sounds straightforward, but the reality is that liability laws in this country and in this state are fluid. Your legal team has to be knowledgeable and willing to go to bat for you.
In some instances, it may be possible to assert the doctrine of, “negligence per se,” which is that the person’s actions are automatically deemed negligent because they violated a law intended to protect the public. Some examples could include violation of health codes, building codes or drunk driving statutes.
Your Winter Garden injury attorney will need to be well-versed in the nuances of injury law in order to help you determine the best strategy for your case.
Dean H. Freeman and his legal team are dedicated, aggressive personal injury attorneys who have committed their practice solely to protecting the rights and furthering the interests of those who have been injured. We have a long track record of success in negotiating favorable settlements and winning multi-million dollar verdicts for clients.
Every single year in this country, 29 million people seek emergency medical care for unexpected injuries. We see more than statistics. We know each of these individuals has a life, a family and a story. Each case is unique. Not every injury is compensable because not all are due to the negligence of another.
However, all deserve to be carefully explored because when the actions – or inaction – of someone else causes you to be hurt, you shouldn’t have to bear the burden of the resulting health care costs, lost wages and more on your own.
When it comes to choosing an injury lawyer in Winter Garden, plaintiffs need to ask:
Whether the attorney has an understanding of accident-related injuries;
Whether the law firm has the resources to go head-to-head with insurance companies and other large corporations or government agencies;
Whether the lawyer has extensive experience and a good record settling personal injury cases or winning favorable verdicts at trial;
Whether the lawyer and the legal team are responsive to your concerns and compassionate about your needs.
It’s best to reach out to an injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident/ incident in question.
