Have you been involved in a car accident on First Avenue North or on First Avenue South in St Petersburg? Well, if so you are not alone. And here at St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas, we handle a ton of cases on First Avenue North and First Avenue South in St Petersburg. One reason is, well, it’s in our backyard. Our office is located on Central Avenue, between Central and First Avenue South. Uh, and we, uh, we drive on these roads day in and day out and we handle accident claims, uh, likewise, uh, in this area. So our office moved to, uh, 5858 Central about four years ago. We had been at Tyrone in ninth Avenue North for about 40 years. Obviously, I wasn’t there the whole time, but since we’ve moved to this new office location, we have experienced a, uh, an increase in car accident cases on First Avenue North and First Avenue South.
And it’s really quite scary, the, the, just the sheer number of car accidents on these roads. Uh, what we found is because first Avenue North and first Avenue South, or one way streets at numerous intersections, it seems like people have a misunderstanding about the direction of traffic. Uh, and at these intersections, they are blowing either stop signs or red lights and causing significant car accidents. Even though the speed limit is really not that high. Uh, but at a 35, 45 miles an hour still can be a, a significant impact. Uh, so, uh, many of our clients after experiencing a car accident on either first Avenue North or first Avenue South will get emergency medical treatment. And we recommend that if there’s any question that they go to the hospital, my name of our clients will go to Bayfront, uh, maybe, uh, st Anthony’s, if it’s in Western st Pete maybe to, um, uh, palms of Pasadena.
Uh, but, uh, if the accident is not severe enough to lead a person to the hospital, then we suggest to get into an urgent care immediately. Uh, the rationale is, Hey, get yourself checked out and make sure you’re fine. But also the insurance companies on these car accident cases will devalue your case if there is a gap in treatment. So just be prepared and we tried to avoid that in every case. So after an accident, uh, we recommend that our clients hire or anyone hire a car accident attorney immediately. Obviously we hope it’s us. Um, if we are contacted, we know all of the providers in the area that specialize in car accident injuries. So keep in mind you may have a family doctor, um, or a general practitioner that you’ve gone to for whatever type of other ailments you’ve experienced in the past. Those types of doctors do not handle car cases.
And the reason is the nature of the billing system with the car accident insurance with the PIP and also the ability to get repaid, they just won’t deal with it. So you need a specialist in the area of car accident injuries. And luckily there are a lot of them in st Petersburg and also luckily we’ve worked with all of them. So we’ll be able to direct you to trustworthy people that will get you better, that won’t take advantage of the billing practices. And at the end of the day, we’ll help our recovery in the car accident claim. So if you are injured in a car accident on first Avenue North or first Avenue South in st Petersburg, we encourage you to contact us. We’ll be able to start your claim, handle the entire process from start to finish. Uh, we are, uh, experienced and specialists in these types of claims, and I hope you will contact us for free consultation.
