We've Recovered Millions of Dollars for the Wrongfully Injured

Head and brain injuries are capable of inflicting significant physical disabilities, neurological disorders, and emotional damages, and have overwhelming potential to permanently alter the lives of victims and their families.

If you or a loved one has recently sustained a brain injury or any other type of head trauma as the result of another's negligence or carelessness, our brain injury attorneys in Clearwater are prepared to fight for the compensation you are due.

By utilizing our more than 60 years of collective experience, resources, and professional connections, our legal team is able to collect and preserve evidence that establishes another party's liability and the extent of damages suffered by a victim.

Common Causes of TBI

Common causes of traumatic brain injury include:

For those injured, it’s important to recognize how these situations can be caused by negligence in order to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Types of Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are classified into three categories: mild, moderate, and severe. The TBI classification you receive will affect your prognosis and recovery. Mild traumatic brain injuries, for example, may resolve in days or weeks with the proper treatment.

Moderate to severe traumatic brain injuries, on the other hand, may last throughout a victim’s life and may affect their ability to live independently and earn an income.

Traumatic vs. Non-Traumatic Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can be considered either traumatic or non-traumatic. Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are the result of a blow to the head or a violent outside force that causes the brain to strike the inside of the skull. Traumatic brain injuries typically result from things like auto accidents or serious falls in which the victim strikes their head.

Non-traumatic brain injuries, on the other hand, are injuries that result when the brain suffers damage due to a shortage or complete lack of oxygen. For example, if a doctor fails to monitor their patient’s condition and the patient suffers a stroke or heart attack, their brain may not receive enough oxygen, resulting in permanent damage.

Signs of a Brain Injury

A brain injury can disrupt all facets of your life: how you walk, how you eat, how you interact and communicate with others and even how you think. However, unlike other catastrophic injuries, the symptoms of a TBI may not appear until days or weeks after an accident, or may be even missed completely, putting you at even more danger.

If you or someone you love recently sustained a head injury, make sure you know how to spot signs of a traumatic brain injury. Even seemingly minor head injuries can sometimes rattle the brain, resulting in painful and lasting damage.

Signs of a minor brain injury include:

  • Temporary loss of consciousness
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Dizziness
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Sensitivity to sound
  • Difficulty concentrating

More severe brain injuries can cause:

  • Loss of consciousness for a prolonged period of time
  • Repeated vomiting
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Dilated pupils
  • Worsening headache
  • Severe loss of coordination
  • Weakness or numbness in the extremities, especially the fingers or toes
  • Clear fluid drains from the nose or ears
  • Agitation, anger, or other significant mood changes
  • Slurred speech

Due to their complex nature, traumatic brain injuries can be difficult to detect. Symptoms are often subtle when the injury initially occurs, which may lead to a delayed diagnosis and worsened prognosis. If you have been involved in an incident where a blow to the head may have occurred, it is in your best interest to get checked out by a doctor as soon as possible.

We Have Recovered Over $95 Million for Our Clients

  • $4,356,000 Verdict for Traumatic Brain Injury Victim
    Client was rear-ended with great force by an employee of Mercedes Benz of Melbourne on a rural highway in South Florida. The collision was so powerful that three cars were totally destroyed and the client was rendered unconscious. The Client sustained multiple fractures to her arm and ribs, damage to her shoulder and she sustained brain damage. The jury deliberated almost four hours at the conclusion of a six day trial in Brevard County, Florida.
  • $2,700,000 Verdict for Truck Accident Victim
    After a six day trial, a Pasco County Jury awarded our clients $2,161,000.00 for wife and $631,900.00 for husband. The wife sustained a head injury and had a spine surgery. The husband injured his hands, shoulder and knee.
  • $1,450,000 Settlement for Injured Pedestrian
    Roman & Gaynor sued our client's car insurance company when they refused to take her fractured pelvis seriously. After being pinned between 2 cars in a parking lot, she could not walk normally or return to work. This jury verdict is more than 10 times the amount of the policy she sought, and her insurance company refused to pay, after her injury. State Farm later settled her bad faith claim and Roman & Gaynor collected the excess judgment.
  • $1,175,000.00 Verdict for Traumatic Brain Injury Victim
    $1,175,000.00: A New Port Richey man was injured in a motor vehicle collision when his work van was hit and flipped over, causing him to be ejected from his vehicle, crushing his skull. Roman & Gaynor's investigation revealed that the work van was not equipped with operable seatbelts. A lawsuit against his employer, who was responsible for the maintenance of the work van, resulted in a $1,175,000.00 settlement.
  • $850,000.00 Settlement for Husband & Wife
    A Pasco County couple were seriously injured in a rear end collision in Pasco County. After spinal surgeries, Roman & Gaynor successfully negotiated a global settlement in the amount of $850,000 which assisted this couple in rebuilding their lives.
  • $836,000.00 Settlement in Rear End Collision
    Our clients, a 56 and 58 year old couple from Pasco County, were stopped for a red light in Tampa when they were rear ended by a distracted driver. Both husband and wife suffered herniated discs as a result of this accident which resulted in 4 spinal surgeries. The at fault party’s insurance carrier asserted a low impact defense, and asserted that our client suffered from these injuries prior to the accident. After protracted litigation, and just 2 months prior to trial, Roman & Gaynor secured a $836,000 settlement in favor of this couple.
  • $820,000.00 Settlement in Rear End Collision
    After a year of litigating a case the Defendant never took seriously, Roman & Gaynor negotiated this settlement just to days before trial for a young lady with a spine injury. In this case, a relatively low impact collision led to more than one spinal surgery, including fusion.
  • $600,000.00 Jury Verdict for Accident Victim
    A St. Petersburg woman received a verdict of more than $600,000 for multiple injuries sustained in a car accident including a broken pelvis. We received the verdict at the end of a three-day trial. The Defendant was the driver of a truck who ran a red light.
  • $572,000.00 Settlement in Rear End Collision

    In 2017, a middle-aged man was rear-ended at a high-rate of speed on the highway. He sustained head, neck and back injuries but did not get any surgeries. We were able to obtain a tender of the policy limits of the at-fault driver but had to file a lawsuit for the underinsured motorist coverage. Seven months later, in 2019, we reached a settlement. We were able to recover a total of $572,000 for this client and his family from the insurance carriers to help them move forward.

  • $550,000.00 $550,000 Recovery for our Client

    A phantom vehicle made a left turn in the direct path of our client’s path of traveling causing him to take evasive action, causing him to strike a concrete utility pole. The force of the impact caused both airbags to deploy and the car engine came through the firewall and into our client’s dashboard and legs. Our client sustained serious lower extremity injuries, neck, and back injuries necessitating hospitalization, multiple surgeries, and extensive rehabilitation. Because the at fault driver fled the scene of the accident, we presented 2 uninsured motorists claims to our client’s uninsured motorist carriers. Demand for tender of the first uninsured motorist policy in the amount of $250,000 was made by our firm and was paid promptly. Second demand for the second Underinsured Motorist policy in the amount of $300,000 was made by our firm. This second insurance carrier denied coverage, based upon a UM rejection form signed by our client. Our firm determined that the UM selection form was fraudulently signed by our client’s car insurance agent. Our firm then filed a Civil Remedy Notice asserting fraud, and the insurance carrier promptly paid its $300,000 UM policy limit within the 60 day time period provided under the Civil Remedy Notice. This resulted in a total recovery of $550,000.00 for our client. A total victory for our client! Not all law firms check the validity of client signatures on UM selection forms. Our clients can be assured of this attention to detail for each and every case.
