Have you been involved in a car accident on US 19 in Pinellas County? Here at St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas, we specialize in car accident cases throughout Pinellas County, and we found that US 19 is absolutely the number one location for very violent, severe, and just simply a most common area for car accident cases throughout the entire County. Now, if you live in Pinellas County, this is not a surprise to you, you know, that, uh, virtually every day in the news you see some type of horrific accident occurring on US 19. But we see it, we live it. We’re on the front end and in the trenches because our clients come to us after being involved in these horrific crashes on US 19 and ask for help. What are the steps, what do we do next? Well, uh, just as a brief background, US 19 starts, although in Manatee County, uh, in Pinellas County, it runs from st Petersburg and it heads North to South.
It runs through men, uh, Pinellas park, Largo, uh, it then enters Clearwater and then Palm Harbor. And then, uh, Tarpon Springs before entering Pascoe County. So it’s a pretty long stretch. It is one of the most, uh, heavily traveled, traveled thoroughfares in Pinellas County. And as a result, it is always congested and uh, we see a lot of actually, uh, dangerous and reckless driving also on U S 19. So back to the question, what steps do you take after being involved in some type of car accident or other accident on us? 19. Well, first get yourself emergency medical treatment. It’s very important you get checked out at a hospital or at an urgent care center while you’re at the scene. Always contact the police and take the witness information, uh, down yourself, get names, contact information for anyone that saw the accident, and then also take pictures, pictures of the cars, the damage to each one of the cars and also pictures to any of your injuries.
Next, we encourage you to contact a car accident lawyer. Hopefully it’s us. And then you’ll be directed to a specialist that handles car accident injury cases. What you’ll see is that many general practitioner practitioners and family law doctors, they do not handle car accident injuries. And that’s because of the complexities of the insurance company billing process. So you’ll need to be sent to a, a doctor or a group of doctors that specialize in car accident injuries. And we know everyone in Pinellas County and we only work with the best doctors. We do not work with people that are just simply out to bill your insurance, uh, and not give you proper medical treatment. We just don’t act that way here. Uh, we have a reputation to uphold and we care about our clients and we only work with the metal mesh with medical who do the same.
So after we refer you out to a medical provider, uh, and you start your medical treatment, we will set up a claim with the at fault driver’s insurance company, whether it’s a truck, car, whatever the case may be, we set up that claim and we also look toward your own insurance policy to see if there’s any uninsured motorist coverage, uh, as a part of last resort. At the end of the day, we’ll compile the records and we’ll submit inappropriate demand to the insurance company for the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
