Board Certified Trial Attorneys Helping You & Your Family Find Justice

Construction Accident Lawyer

60+ Years of Experience Serving Clearwater, Florida

Construction sites are littered with numerous dangers and potential hazards. Electrical wiring, heavy machinery, negligent conditions resulting in construction falls, and other dangerous conditions pose constant threats to workers who face these risks every day on the job. When accidents and injuries do occur, construction workers are also too often unfairly compensated.

By working with a Clearwater construction accident lawyer from Roman & Gaynor, injured construction workers, as well as bystanders who may have been injured in a construction accident, can gain a clear understanding about their rights and the ways in which they can pursue compensation.

We are prepared to handle all types of construction accident cases, including some of the most common:

  • Scaffolding accidents
  • Falls and falling objects
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Electrocution
  • Crane accidents
  • Defective machinery or equipment
  • Explosions and fires
  • Car accidents at construction sites
  • Exposure to toxic substances and materials
  • Wrongful death

Although injured construction workers do have the right to pursue workers' compensation benefits from their employers, it is often the case that these benefits fail to meet the needs of injured victims.

While these benefits may prove sufficient compensation in some cases, serious construction injuries can result in extensive medical bills, lost wages, and other damages that far outweigh the benefits that workers' comp provides. Often injured workers may have a claim against someone other than their employer.

By analyzing your case during a free case evaluation, our legal team can determine all of your available legal options.

If it can be determined that someone other than your employer committed violations or failed to provide safe working conditions, they can potentially be held liable for your injuries and damages.

In these cases, pursuing a personal injury claim may be a more viable option for recovering full compensation in addition to workers' comp benefits. Additionally, a third party, separate from your employer, could be held liable for your work accident.

Our investigations often reveal that a third party is liable for construction accidents. A comprehensive investigation is essential in uncovering all avenues of liability and recovery.

As every case, accident, and injured victim is unique, our firm focuses on providing personalized service and customized legal strategies suited to your situation. This can allow our legal team to pursue the best course of action that will fully meet your needs.

Trust in a firm that genuinely supports clients through these difficult times and has proven our ability to recover millions of dollars in compensation on behalf of injured victims. Contact a Clearwater construction accident lawyer from Roman & Gaynor to discuss your case.

  • $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.

  • $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.

  • $850,000.00 Settlement for Husband & Wife

  • $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

  • $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.
