Have you been involved in a car accident in St. Petersburg on either first Avenue, South central Avenue or first Avenue North? If so, you’re not alone. Our office at here at a St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid and Douglas is at 5858 central Avenue. So we’re right in the middle of what we, what we thought was a relatively low speed, relatively safe area to travel in st Petersburg and boy were we wrong since we’ve been in I at our office now for about four years. Uh, it is absolutely amazing, the number of auto accidents and car accidents and pedestrian accidents that occur all along first Avenue, North central Avenue and first Avenue South here in st Petersburg. It’s absolutely amazing. A couple of months ago, uh, a woman was hit crossing the road right at central Avenue and 58th street North. I mean, it was a horrific, horrific accident.
The woman was killed, uh, just horrible sets, a set of circumstances. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was in on a Sunday morning just checking my emails. I looked out of my window on first Avenue South and there was a guy that I know from the gym who was rear-ended, right, right outside of my window. And I was a pretty serious car accident and it wasn’t even at an intersection. And so, uh, you know, at our law firm, we’ve sat back and we said, what is going on? We had absolutely no idea that the, this stretch in St. Petersburg was so dangerous, but it turns out it is. And one of the reasons for that is there are so many cross streets and intersections all along first Avenue, North central Avenue and first Avenue South here in St. Petersburg. There’s just a ton of traffic crossing the roads in various directions.
And because of that, even though the speed limits are relatively low, I mean it’s only 40 mile an hour speed limit throughout most of that stretch, even though those speed limits are low, there are a lot of accidents due to the, just the cross nature of traffic. And of course pedestrian traffic as well. So, uh, when, if you have been involved in an accident, you are not alone. We handle these cases literally in our backyard. We handle them day in and day out. We witnessed them and we represent people who have been injured in these car accidents and pedestrian accidents. Now, most of our clients go to St. Anthony’s or St. Anthony’s hospital or even Bayfront hospital, although some will go to palms of Pasadena. Uh, the good news is, uh, there are a ton of quality medical providers that we work with in St. Petersburg, uh, that handle car accident and pedestrian accident cases all along this stretch.
So if you’ve been injured, uh, we can refer you first off to a medical provider there, chiropractors, physical therapists, uh, orthopedic doctors, um, that can then refer you off for MRIs to really find out the extent of your injuries after your St. Petersburg, uh, accident. So, uh, we are well versed, we are familiar with how to handle these claims. We hope that you are not ever involved in one of these accidents, but if you are, please contact us at St. Petersburg personal injury attorneys for a free consultation and we will be happy to set you on the right track.
