Hi, my name is Sean McQuaid and I run St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid and Douglas, and that is actually the personal injury wing or division of Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A. I am also the president of Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid with my practice here, primarily in St Petersburg, but also throughout the Tampa Bay area. This video is primarily for the viewers to get to know me, see what I look like and sound like, and also get a little bit of insight into how I handle cases. I’m not going to get into my accolades, my awards, my educational background, because if you want to read any of that information, it’s all available on 727injury.com website. What I want to talk about in this video is basically my philosophy and how I handle personal injury cases and what makes me different from all the other personal injury lawyers and personal injury law firms that you see on buses, on TV commercials, or even find on the internet.
And what I think makes me unique is, and I know it might sound cliche, but I put my client’s interests first and I developed a reputation over the course of my career in putting my client’s interests first and taking care of their needs. Now I cut my teeth on commercial litigation and business litigation cases and also criminal defense cases as a young lawyer, which is a, it’s, it’s a pretty odd combination. So I learned at a very early stage in my career, not only to litigate sophisticated cases with, um, complex documents and accounting work against some of the silk stocking law firms around town, uh, but also doing criminal defense, getting your hands dirty, getting in the trenches and litigating and protecting people. And so I learned as a young lawyer, uh, the value of not only hard work, but also the attention to protecting clients and their money.
Because again, when you do commercial litigation, you’re billing by the hour and again, your clients are expected to pay that when you’re doing criminal defense work, you’re charging people flat fees and that you’re expecting them to pay you either on payment plans or in lump sum, lump sum payments, their hard earned money. And so unlike unlike personal injury world that the personal injury world, which is really a bizarre type of world, uh, and a lot of the personal injury lawyers that you meet, uh, are real characters. Um, and this whole philosophy about sticking it to the insurance company and all that. Uh, at the end of the day, my philosophy I think is a little bit different. I want people to get better and then recover compensation. And so here at st Petersburg personal injury attorneys, McWane and Douglas, we pay much more attention to detail on our cases. Then you’ll find it.
Any other personal injury law firm. And what I mean by that is we get to know our clients, we know and are aware of their injuries, what they’ve gone through at the end of the day. Uh, we watched their medical bills, for example, some law firms, they just, you’ll never hear from your lawyer or your paralegal again. You’re just often never, never land. Uh, people will run up $20,000 in medical bills when there’s only $10,000 worth of insurance available. And so the little things like that, just lawyer being a good lawyer, one Oh one a type of work is what we bring to the table. And I guarantee that at the end of the day, our clients put more money in their pocket because their cases are worked properly. We are able to properly relay the extent of their injuries and what they’ve gone through and the extent of their damages to the insurance company.
And then also we protect them by going out and really, um, pulling no punches in terms of trying to get their medical bills reduced down to the lowest possible level. And at the end of the day, I believe, in fact, I know that our clients are putting more in their pocket at the end of the day as a result of our efforts. So when we talk about putting our client’s best interests first, I believe that my reputation is built on that and I stake my reputation on that philosophy. So if you are in the unfortunate position that you’ve been injured in an accident, due to no fault of your own and you’d like to speak to a personal injury attorney, I would be flattered if you contact me. Our phone number you can probably see on the website is (727) 381-2300 and our consultations are always free and I will give you an honest and straightforward assessment as to whether you have a viable personal injury claim. I appreciate you watching this video. And again, I would be flattered if, uh, if you would contact me.
