My wife and I were in an automobile accident in February 2022 after a negligent driver smashed into the rear of our four-month-old car, leaving us physically injured, emotionally traumatized, and with a vehicle that sustained major damage. Upon contacting Roman and Austin, Mr. John Austin, promptly was at our home. As he became aware of our situation, he confidently put us at ease, reviewing the process, leading us towards our recovery. John and his staff assisted with the process of recovery-medical care and expenses, automobile renter/repairs, and insurance adjustments/claims. The staff were kind, courteous, and truly compassionate towards both of us! They kept us abreast throughout the entire process for our recovery. We recommend Roman and Austin to assist you and your family through any unfortunate incident when you need an personal injury attorney.

My son was in a bad accident and Mark stayed on top of it negotiating with multiple companies to make sure we limited our liability and the case was settled within our limits. Honestly, the persistence and knowledge was second to none. I would never consider another personal injury firm, Mark is ethical, experienced and caring +++

Mark Roman is an honest and caring lawyer. I went to him when I was involved in two car accidents. I dont know what I would have done without him. He made sure I was taken care of and wasn't stuck with tons of medical bills from accidents I did not cause. He truly puts his clients and their interests first.

Client Reviews

View All Reviews

I found everyone at Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers to be very very professional, helpful, and understanding. Calls were always answered and the attorney himself was always available for any questions that I had. They followed up with me after my surgery and took care of everything involved in the billing process with my insurance provider and the surgery center.


I would like to thank you and your staff for handling my recent case in such a professional manner. Coming away from our first meeting, I knew that all would be well and that I was in good hands. You and your team did not disappoint. In fact, you greatly exceeded my expectations, from negotiating with insurance companies and medical providers to coordinating payment of medical bills, the attention to detail was impressive. I would especially like to thank Cate for her effort in managing the day to day details of the case. If the need ever arises again you will be my only choice for representation.

Robert M.

I am writing this letter to formally thank you for the outstanding legal representation provided to me. Your professionalism and concern for my case will not be forgotten. The treatment that I had experienced from my former attorney left me extremely frustrated. You and your wonderful staff have restored my faith in the legal profession. My only regret is that I didn’t utilize your services initially. You were honest and forthright and I truly appreciate that. I would not hesitate to recommend your law firm to my friends and loved ones. Mr. Roman, you are a credit to your profession.

Mark M.

For my wife, this was a God-send, since she had never been through a personal injury claim and was intimidated by the process. Furthermore, the case was aggressively pursued and resolved in far less time than anticipated, and with even greater success than either of us had imagined. We were so very confident in the firm’s ability and were never disappointed. Kudos to all involved.

Joseph S.

Don’t change; I believe your faith as well as the fact that you do care about your clients is what sets you apart the most. I also believe that since you have experienced first-hand what it is like to be in a bad accident and have insurance companies jerk you around; you know what it is like to be in your client’s shoes and can relate with them about what they are feeling. You and your firm have definitely made my first legal battle as comfortable as one can make it. Thank you for believing in me and my case and always providing sound guidance. While I hope that I never have the need for a lawyer again; if the circumstances should require one, I will definitely turn to you.

Ryan H.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for everything you’ve done for me. Your expertise, skill, dedication and hard work during this horrific experience in my life, literally saved me. I can attest that your motto “We Really Care” and “Compassionate Justice” are not just mere words, but they are truly the mission by which you and your office live by.

Kally F.

To me, Mark represents the highest capability of attorney I have ever come to know. Because of my prior injuries, I did not think Mark would be able to get a favorable ruling for me and my family. Eventually, with more than two years of sincere and dedicated effort, the Roman team prevailed for me and received an eventually acceptable outcome after many months of struggle. My wife and I were completely and pleasantly surprised by Mark’s outcome. We are 100% committed to Attorney Roman and his legal team for any of our future needs.

W. S.

When I hired Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers I had no idea that I would be treated like family. Prompt, aggressive, compassionate representation is exactly what I received.

The C Family

As a client I was very happy with the outcome of my case! Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers did a phenomenal and professional job at handling my case. They really do take their job serious and they really care about their clients! Thank you guys so much!!”

Karen W.

At trial, when the law team was planning their strategy, I was not excluded. In fact, my opinion counted. I felt as though I belonged to the “Team”. I cannot stress enough how professional, comfortable, and relaxed I was at trial. Mark and Morgan make remarkable partners. They complement each other with their own special way of making things go their way and, in turn, as a client, this results in things going your way. It is with great confidence that I recommend Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers.

James F.

At a very low point in my life, Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers was very professional, protective, and patient with me. I appreciate and needed that. You have a great team – I was very satisfied. Thank you!

Paula S.

I would like to thank each and every one of the Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers. I had experience with other law firms, but yours is different. We really feel that you humanly care.”

Kheir B.

Everyone at your firm has been and is very helpful and has shown that they really care and are not like other lawyers who are only in it for the money. Your firm cares about taking care of their people. I would refer them and use them again if needed. Thank you to everyone.

Sultana M.

Roman Austin Personal Injury Lawyers worked with me after my auto accident and I can’t say enough about their professionalism and caring attitudes.

Practice Areas We Handle

Personal Injury FAQ

  • How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Clearwater Personal Injury Attorney?

    It costs nothing to hire a Clearwater injury lawyer upfront. Instead, the lawyer recovers anywhere between 33% and 40% of your financial award. But, your lawyer only gets paid if they win your case. This is called a contingency fee arrangement.

    That’s a huge incentive for them to work incredibly hard on your behalf and fight to maximize your recovery.

    Always ask how the fee is calculated: using your gross award (total amount won/awarded) or your net award (total reduced by case-related costs). It’s important to know when things like filing fees, court costs, and expert witness fees are deducted from your settlement or verdict. It will affect how much money you ultimately walk away with when your case is over.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Florida?

    Most personal injury cases in Florida are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. This means that you’ll probably have two years to file a lawsuit after an accident in Clearwater.

    The statute of limitations used to give Florida accident victims four years to file a legal claim. However, the law was revised on March 24, 2023, shortening the deadline. Accordingly, if your personal injury accident occurred after 3/24/23, you’re subject to the two-year deadline.

    Wrongful death lawsuits and medical malpractice claims are also subject to a two-year time limit.

  • What Compensation Can I Get in a Personal Injury Case in Clearwater, FL?

    Under Florida law, compensatory damages are typically available to plaintiffs in a personal injury case. Compensatory damages fall into one of two categories: economic and non-economic.

    Economic damages are intended to compensate for verifiable financial costs and losses related to an accident or injury. And non-economic damages are intended to compensate for consequences of an accident that are more difficult to value in terms of dollars and cents.

    In limited instances, punitive damages might also be available. These are awarded when a defendant’s conduct was intentionally harmful or grossly negligent. Punitive damages are awarded on top of any compensatory awards in order to punish the defendant.

  • How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    There’s no one right answer. The value of every case is different – because accidents, injuries, and victims are all unique.

    Ultimately, what your case is worth will depend on things like:

    • The type and extent of injuries
    • Whether your ability to work and earn a living has been affected
    • Your out of pocket expenses
    • Liability and available insurance coverage
    • How your quality of life has been affected

    The more serious your injuries, the more your case is likely worth.

    Keep in mind that while your case might be worth much, you run the risk of leaving money on the table if you don’t have the right legal team by your side. Our law firm benefits from the experience of a Board Certified trial attorney. We care about you and we will not rest until all damages have been identified and you’re compensated to the fullest extent of the law.
