I'm very happy that I chose Mr. McQuaid to represent me after the car accident. This was my first time dealing with this sort of problem and didn't know exactly where to start, but Mr. McQuaid stepped in and pointed me in the right direction.

I was injured in a car accident a couple of years ago. The woman who rear-ended me had minimal insurance coverage, so it was not enough to cover the costs of care I needed due to my injures. I had a severe neck injury and injured both of my TM joints. I suffered from major headaches and neck pain. Despite my treating doctors indicating that I have permanent injures, my own auto insurer refused the demand for my own underinsured motorist coverage. As a result of the denial by my insurance company, Mr. Douglas filed suit on my behalf. He and his staff were wonderful to work with. They were super responsive and walked me through the entire process. He was able to obtain a good settlement for me. I would highly recommend Mr. Douglas, and his law firm.read more

Sean and his whole team are great! Very knowledgeable, professional, and most of all honest. This was my first time being in a situation like this and I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect.

Always keeping me in the loop of what was going on as well as being a straight shooter, with tons of experience and insight, allowed me to be able to make the best decisions for me and my family.

Attorney Jonathon Douglas has always been a valuable resource to all things legal for me and my family. However, legal expertise is not the only attribute that defines this lawyer. He has that additional quality of a humane perspective that isn't taught or learned, it's innate. You can find any attorney on the web or TV, but few will cut to the core of your needs as adeptly and compassionately as Jonathon.

Jonathon was able to quickly move my case forward and reach a settlement that I was very happy with. I would recommend Jonathon Douglas to anyone and everyone.

Sean McQuaid is an amazing attorney. He has worked with me on 2 cases. Both of which I was extremely satisfied with the outcome. During the entire process, he always kept me up to date and was easy to get ahold of. If I had questions, he would always get back to me right away. He made going through a difficult time much less stressful. And for that I am truly grateful.

We keep our caseload at a manageable level in order to offer personal attention and keep our costs low. This equates to maximized settlements and more money to our clients. This formula has worked for decades to recover money for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and the compensation that you deserve.

Because the law firm has many other lawyers and other practice areas, Sean and Jonathan formed this entity to specialize in St. Petersburg car accident law Because of our success, our clients began referring us to their friends and relatives across Florida. If we are honored to be referred to your case, we will as accident attorneys give you the initial consultation either at our law office or over the phone. And if you’re entitled to compensation and we know that we can do a good job for you. We’ll take your case.

How Do Personal Injury Attorneys Charge?

Personal injury claims are not like other types of cases because they are billed on a contingency basis. A contingency means that the lawyer is paid a percentage of the money that is recovered. If no money is recovered, then you don’t owe the lawyer anything.

Don’t feel guilty about the arrangement if it turns out there’s no insurance and no money because an experienced injury lawyer understands the risk that comes with the job. Fighting for your medical bills is a priority to us.

Because of this contingency arrangement, the lawyer and the client have a mutual interest to recover the most amount of money possible- at least that is the purpose behind the arrangement. However, think about the conflict between the law firms who spend big money on advertising.

Do you think that they are maximizing the value of each of their cases when the bill for advertising is due? Fortunately, you never have to worry about that issue with us. Our goal in every case is to provide you with the resources to get the best possible medical care that you can receive, communicate with you, and then maximize the amount of money that you recover.

How Can Sean McQuaid and Jonathon Douglas Maximize My Recovery?

You have heard this statement about maximizing your recovery, but we are certain no one has ever explained it to you. In our opinion, maximizing your recovery means putting as much money in your pocket as possible.

At the end of your case, don’t you want your medical bills paid and then get a check for as much as possible? Shouldn’t that be the goal for every personal injury attorney regarding your car accident? Sadly, this doesn’t happen with most firms and people have no idea that they are being taken advantage of.

Let’s Break it Down

For example, say you have been in a car accident or maybe you were a passenger that has been injured in a car or involved in a wreck with a truck in Largo or St Petersburg; there is $10,000 available in insurance, and you have outstanding medical bills of $5,000. Your personal injury lawyer recovers the $10,000 for you and takes his one-third fee of $3,333.

This leaves $6,666 to you before your bills are paid. Since the lawyer has already received his fee, do you think that he is going to do more work to help you put more money in your pocket? Probably not.

But, that’s not how we operate. If this were our case, we would first ensure that as many of the bills as possible were paid by PIP insurance (also called no-fault coverage as required on every vehicle in Florida). Once that was done, we would ask the medical providers to take a reduction in their bills. Usually, we can get the bills reduced by half!

How Much Compensation Can I Expect?

Thus, if you were a client at our personal injury law firm, you would receive at least $4,167 compared to $1,667 with some other lawyer. That’s a big difference! Our clients appreciate that we don’t get paid anymore to put more money in their pockets, but it is just the right thing to do.

What Types of Cases Do We Take?

We handle all types of car accident and injury claims in St. Petersburg. Some based on negligence. In terms of numbers, most of our cases are car accident injury claims because they are the most common.

We also specialize in all auto accidents, premises liability such as trip, slip and falls, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When a client is incapacitated due to a traumatic accident or brain injury, we set up a Guardianship. When a client is killed, we then set up an Estate.

Contact Us For a Free Consultation Immediately
