Board Certified Trial Attorneys Helping You & Your Family Find Justice

Spinal Cord Injuries

Speak with a Clearwater Injury Lawyer: (727) 877-1212

Injuries to the neck and spine are often classified as catastrophic because they have the potential to result in life-altering repercussions for victims and their families. From extensive pain, suffering, and lengthy rehabilitation to surgical intervention, impairment, paralysis, and permanent disability, the effects of spinal cord injuries can be unpredictable and intractable.

If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury in an auto accident, as a result of a fall, or in any other type of incident resulting from the negligence of another, you may have the legal right to hold the at-fault party accountable for your damages.

Because spinal cord injuries often necessitate considerable medical care for months, years, or even lifetimes, securing full and fair compensation is essential.

At Roman & Gaynor, our Clearwater personal injury attorney have cultivated a reputation for crafting winning legal strategies that enable the injured and the wronged to secure the successful outcomes they so deeply depend on.

Our team is passionate about leveling the playing field between victims and insurance companies that put profits over people in their attempts to minimize payouts – personal injury law is all we do.

  • $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

  • $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.
