Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Claims

When you or someone you care about has been injured in as the result of any negligent, careless, or wrongful act, you need to be certain that the legal team you choose to represent you is capable of producing the results you need.

Our personal injury attorneys in Clearwater have demonstrated that we can deliver positive results in a wide range of cases, including the most complex.

One of our major areas of practice in the personal injury field is motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Injuries sustained from these types of accidents are often severe. If you have suffered a spine or brain injury, we can fight for compensation on your behalf.

No two accidents are the same. Negligence comes in many forms and there and many ways people can be wrongfully injured.

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn More About Your Rights & Options
Roman & Gaynor is a personal injury firm centered on the needs of injured victims and their families. Because we know that unforeseen injuries can be extremely difficult experiences and because we are well aware that many injured victims feel overwhelmed by convoluted legal procedures, we make every effort to set our clients at ease. We do this by supplying the information they need to understand their rights, the claim process, and how they can secure fair compensation.
  • What does personal injury mean?
    Personal injury, as a legal term, refers to any damages inflicted upon one person by another individual or entity. Contrary to what many may believe, personal injury does not refer to cuts and scrapes and visible damage alone. In the context of a personal injury claim, personal injury may refer to any physical, emotional, and/or financial damages suffered as the direct result of another's actions. Personal injury claims are a form of civil complaint that allow an individual (the plaintiff) to seek monetary compensation for their financial, physical, and emotional losses. These losses must have been incurred because another party (the defendant) was acting in a negligent manner.
  • What does negligence mean?
    Negligence is the central argument of nearly any personal injury claim. In order to commit negligence, the defendant has to have a “duty of care” towards the plaintiff. This duty of care can vary depending on the situation at hand. For instance, a doctor has a clear duty of care to provide a prompt diagnosis for their patient. If that doctor delays their diagnosis and ultimately harms the patient, they can be held accountable for that oversight. On the other hand, if there is no fault for your accident, you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages. For a successful claim, you must be able to identify the party liable for your injuries, and show that they had a duty of care to protect you.
  • How long do I have to file a lawsuit in Florida?
    The time limits for filing a claim are called the statute of limitations. In Florida, accident victims have four years from the date of their injury to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. If you try to litigate against another party on any time after the deadline has run out, you may miss out. Judges tend to be less sympathetic once the statute has run out, and thus, may not be inclined to rule in your favor. This law was brought up so that claimants will not try to take advantage of the legal system by making claims for incidents that happened years prior, when the evidence is no longer fresh.
  • How is compensation awarded?
    Depending on the circumstances, a jury may award compensation to cover any physical, emotional, and/or financial damages. Financial damages are typically those that are measurable and objective, including the past and future costs of medical care, lost work wages and future earnings, and funeral expenses when applicable. Emotional damages, on the other hand, are much more difficult to put a price on. When determining the amount of compensation to award a victim and their family for emotional damages, a jury will consider pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of companionship, grief, and other factors. In certain cases, particularly in those involving extreme acts of negligence, courts may also award compensation in the form of punitive damages. Punitive damages are meant to punish wrongdoers and set an example that deters others from committing similar acts.
  • How much is my personal injury claim worth?
    The simple answer to this question is: it depends. There are numerous factors and circumstances that will ultimately influence the amount of compensation you may receive. Because all cases are unique, we believe that the answer to this question should only be based on a thorough case evaluation in which we analyze the facts of your case and the compensation you are eligible to obtain.
  • Will my personal injury case go to trial?
    Again, the answer to this question is dependent on the facts inherent to the situation and case at hand. In short, not every case will go to trial. In fact, most personal injury claims can be favorably resolved and settled before they reach the trial phase. When defendants dispute claims or when insurance companies offer unfair settlements that fail to meet the needs of injured victims, then pursuing a verdict by way of a trial may become a viable option. As both of our firm's founding attorneys hold board certifications as civil trial law experts, you can be more than confident knowing that if and when your case does go to trial, you will have proven trial experts on your side.
  • Do I need a lawyer to file a personal injury claim?
    There is no legal mandate requiring you to have legal representation when filing a personal injury claim. Although having legal representation may not be a necessity, recovering your damages certainly is. By having an experienced legal team on your side, especially one with over 60 years of combined experience, you can equip yourself with the representation needed to tackle any challenges that may arise and to swiftly navigate the claim process. Because our Clearwater personal injury attorneys have the tools and resources to secure the best possible resolution, you can gain the sense of reassurance that comes with knowing truly talented legal minds are fighting on your behalf.
  • Can't I just settle with the insurance company?
    When you file a claim against a negligent party, you’re not going to receive any compensation from the individual themselves. Rather, you’re seeking damages from that person’s insurance company. They are the policyholder and their coverage dictates what is paid out to you as the injured party. However, because these are large corporations often looking to protect their own assets, they will do whatever they can to avoid paying the maximum for the damages you've suffered. Instead, they’ll try and find ways to limit their own liability and put you at fault for the damages. You will need a lawyer to help you navigate this process and prevent the insurance company from taking advantage of you. Sadly, insurance companies work hard to undermine victims' injuries and protect themselves.
  • What types of cases does your firm handle?
    As personal injury lawyers with more than 60 years of combined experience, we can take on a wide range of injury claims, helping accident victims seek compensation for their losses. This includes cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle and pedestrian accidents, construction accidents, wrongful death, premises liability, catastrophic injuries, and more. When you contact our firm for a free consultation, we can explain your options. We’ll also clearly explain the core legal elements of your case so that you understand the strategy, as well as the chances of success.

    Kally and her friend were leaving a restaurant, and were struck by another vehicle. Kally was then run over, dragged more than 80 feet, and had deep cuts all over her face. Listen to her story and see how Roman & Gaynor found her justice.
