What Type of Law Do We Practice?

At St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid and Douglas we often get asked what type of law do we practice? Well, we practice in the area of personal injury. What does that mean? Well, it’s personal injury caused by the negligence of someone else and that could include a car accident. For example, if you were in a car accident, someone rear ends you and you were injured, that’s a personal injury claim. So we handle car accidents in Pinellas County and the surrounding counties. Um, much like motorcycle accidents, same thing. If you are in a motorcycle accident and that accident was caused by the negligence of someone else, then that would be a personal injury claim that we would handle and oftentimes people aren’t quite sure what a personal injury attorney does. Well, I wanted to take this time to kind of explain to you how it is that a personal injury attorney can really help move your life forward with not only medical treatment, your recovery from either that auto accident, motorcycle accident, that slip and fall or trip and fall.

What ends up happening is oftentimes medical providers are reluctant or not set up to handle cases and handle injuries that are a result of a personal injury. Matter or example. Again, a car accident and so there are some insurance issues that also play into that, but by and large we have a lot of our clients that come to us and say, I went to my primary care provider and they won’t help me because they don’t treat car accident injuries. Well, hiring and getting on your team, personal injury attorney that specializes in this area, they will be able to help you get in touch with medical providers that specialize in treating car accident injuries, motorcycle accident trip and fall, slip and fall type of injuries. So one of the things that we do with for our clients is help get them if they need the help in touch with the right medical providers to treat those personal injuries.

The next thing that an experienced personal injury attorney can bring to the table for their clients is being able to handle and deal with these insurance companies who are out there to try to pay as little as possible. Um, for these personal injury type claims and we do this every day. We deal with these adjusters who are trying to underpay or not pay claims for various different legal reasons, but having an experienced personal injury attorney handled the insurance claims side for you will be invaluable in optimizing the value of your case and hopefully being able to ensure that you get the proper medical treatment and if you’ve lost wages, obviously collect on those lost wages and future damages. Finally, an experienced personal injury attorney is going to be able to help navigate the hit falls that can occur as a result of filing an insurance claim as it relates to personal injuries from either an auto accident, Pinellas County, a motorcycle accident, and Pinellas County and those, some of those pitfalls. Again, dealing with the insurance is one of them, but also maintaining and managing the medical bills that accrue after you are injured. And a negligent type event. Again, car accident, motorcycle accident type things. And so that’s briefly what personal injuries, personal injury attorneys can do. And I hope this video has been a little helpful and kind of understanding what personal injuries attorneys do and can do for you and for your case. If you have any questions, feel free to contact personal injury attorneys, McQuade and Douglas for a complimentary consultation.
