Board Certified Trial Attorneys Helping You & Your Family Find Justice

Clearwater Child Injury Attorneys

Helping Florida Families for 60+ Years

Injuries to children are among the most emotionally traumatic experience families can endure. At times when children are in crucial stages of physical and mental development, any type of injury can pose serious threats to their future well-being.

If your child has suffered an injury that you believe was caused by another party's negligence, allow our passionate Clearwater child injury lawyers to help you navigate the legal procedures needed to obtain justice and fair compensation.

We handle all types of child injury cases, such as:

Regardless of the circumstances involved, our legal team makes it a point to act as bold advocates that do not relent in our efforts to obtain the full compensation.

Whether these personal injury claims are filed against manufacturers of children's toys or against businesses and premises owners that fail to provide safe conditions for children, you can be confident knowing that we are willing to challenge even the most powerful corporate entities and to handle even the most challenging cases.

Our firm's founding lawyers, Mark Roman and Morgan Gaynor, are both board-certified civil trial lawyers by the Florida Bar. You can rest assured that when others contest these claims, we use our expertise in civil litigation to fight relentlessly during trial.

Who Can File My Child's Injury Claim?

If the injured child is under the age of 18, they cannot file a personal injury claim on their own. You or another guardian will need to file the injury claim in the child’s name if they are a minor. However, there is a benefit to this caveat. As a parent, you may also be entitled to compensation for any expenses you pay on behalf of your child.

What If My Child Was Trespassing?

When it comes to an adult, if they did not have explicit permission to be on the property where they suffered their injury, they would likely be unable to pursue damages.

When it comes to children, however, your ability to seek compensation depends on if the property owner knew of a potentially dangerous condition and if they were also aware that there was a risk for children trespassing on their property.

Will My Child's Age Be a Factor?

The legal standards set for children are not the same as the legal standards set for adults. This difference is based on the fact that the brains of young children have yet to finish developing, so they don't have the same mental capacity as an adult.

To determine negligence in child injury cases, the court must ask the question: “How would a child of their age reasonably be expected to behave?” Additionally, children who are under the age of 6 cannot be found partially negligent for their actions.

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.
