Board Certified Trial Attorneys Helping You & Your Family Find Justice

Were You Hit By a Drunk Driver in Florida?

Contact Our Clearwater Car Accident Attorneys 24/7

When car accidents are the product of pure misfortune and genuine mistakes, the injuries and tragedy experienced by victims and their families are still difficult to swallow.

When injuries are caused by the senseless and illegal acts of others, however, these experiences can be tremendously difficult. Such is the case when negligent drivers make the choice to drive under the influence of drugs of alcohol.

A careless and explicitly illegal act, drunk driving injures and kills thousands of Americans in car accidents each year. According to statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Pinellas County has seen upwards of 1,100 drunk driving accidents in each of the past five years. At Roman & Gaynor, we are here to help drunk driving accident victims seek justice.

Maximizing Your Compensation with Punitive Damages

In certain civil cases, courts may award punitive damages to victims as a way of further punishing wrongdoers who commit egregious acts of negligence. These exemplary awards are designed to both punish wrongdoers and to deter others from committing such acts.

As punitive damages are permitted in DUI personal injury cases, our legal team works tirelessly to maximize your compensation by obtaining these awards. In order to accomplish this, it must be proven clearly and convincingly that the other driver either:

  • Is guilty of intentional misconduct — they were aware of the wrongfulness of their conduct and the high probability that damages or injuries would result and, despite that knowledge, continued to pursue that action; or
  • Acted with gross negligence — their conduct reflects a disregard to the safety of others.

  • $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.

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

  • $520,000.00 Settlement in Auto Accident
    A husband and wife were traveling 55 mph in the middle lane when they were suddenly side-swiped. Their vehicle sustained tremendous property damage to the driver’s side and the mirror had even ripped off the door. The at-fault driver fled the scene, but was later charged and arrested for a DUI. The insurance adjuster initially offered to settle the claim for a very minimal amount. The wife underwent neck surgery and the husband had back surgery. After operative reports were submitted to the adjuster, the policy limits of the at-fault party were tendered along with two underinsured motorist policies in this case for a total resolution of $520,000.

After protracted litigation, settlement was reached in the amount of $425,000.
