At St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas, we have an outstanding record of success by bringing extensive experience, thorough preparation, constant communication with our clients, and aggressive representation to all our cases. We have dedicated our careers to helping injured people.

We are proud of the verdicts and settlements that we have achieved and are pleased to share some examples with you. The following sample cases are just some of the results our firm has helped obtain on behalf of our clients. Our goal is to provide these case results as a guide for you when evaluating our firm and your own situation.

Where are the amounts? We leave out the amount of our settlements because we believe it can be misleading. Every case is unique, and it is impossible to base your recovery on someone else’s situation. Only after a thorough investigation can a personal injury attorney even begin to give you an idea of what you may be entitled to recover. We hope that you will trust us to help you with an honest analysis of your claim.
