Personal Injury Attorneys Who Specialize in Women’s Claims

Women who are victims of accidents deserve to have their voices heard. By hiring a personal injury attorney who specializes in women’s claims, you can ensure that it happens. At St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas, 66% of our clients are women – making us very familiar with all types of women’s personal injury claims. We understand the approaches required to take on the insurance companies and the unique issues that women experience during the rehabilitation and claims process.

Personal Injury Attorneys Who Specialize in Women’s Claims

Women’s Personal Injury Latest News

St Petersburg Personal Injury Attorneys McQuaid & Douglas provide answers to some of the most commonly asked questions from our female clients. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.

Women’s Auto Accident Attorney in St Petersburg, FL

Auto accidents are life-changing experiences, with the accident itself just the start of often a long and emotionally exhausting road to recovery. Women are 73 percent more likely to be injured in an auto accident, which can include injuries such as head injuries, whiplash, severe bruising, cuts, pregnancy-related injuries and PTSD. Most of the injuries we see are women-specific and require a women’s personal injury attorney who is experienced in handling their claims.

PTSD After an Auto Accident

Post-traumatic stress disorder is underestimated by family members, attorneys and sadly even doctors. With the mental health stigma of “toughen up and deal with it” so prevalent, countless women are forced to suffer in silence. Over the years, we have noticed that many of our female clients have PTSD long after the physical injuries have healed. Flashbacks, depression and anxiety should not be ignored. If you believe you may have PTSD, reach out to us today so we can help you get the support you need.

As women’s personal injury attorneys, we know how difficult getting medical treatment for PTSD can be unless the victim has health insurance and pays the copay. Thankfully, we have discovered that some therapists will provide treatment on a letter of protection (LOP), which enables bills to be paid out of the proceeds of the auto accident claim.

Concussions from Auto Accidents

Over 2.87 million Americans suffer from traumatic brain injuries, including concussions, every year with 52% caused by auto accidents. Despite this, the attention given to concussions experienced by women is still overlooked. Studies show that women experience more prolonged and severe symptoms than men and take longer to recover. The impairments that follow can have long-term consequences on day-to-day life and the ability to work.

The majority of our female clients report symptoms of a concussion after being involved in an auto accident. As women’s personal injury attorneys, we frequently help our clients receive the proper medical treatment (including medication, diagnosis and MRIs) and the compensation they deserve for missed income and suffering. If you’re suffering from any of the symptoms of concussion, then reach out to us for a free consultation.

Breast Implant Ruptures Caused by Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can cause breast implants to rupture, which can leak silicon around the body and require breast implant removal and replacement. Breast implant ruptures in auto accidents usually occur when a woman is pushed into a steering wheel, car seat, hit by an airbag, thrown about, or injured by a seat belt. Although not talked about much, we regularly deal with breast implant rupture personal injury claims.

We have never seen a breast implant rupture repair paid for by a car insurance PIP or med pay plan. That means women are forced to pay out of their own pocket or to pay the insurance deductible. With the help of a women’s personal injury attorney, you can fight to gain compensation for your rupture if the accident wasn’t your fault. We also regularly help women get surgery through a letter of protection (LOP), which allows the bill to be paid through their injury claim’s settlement.

Loss of Bladder Control or Incontinence Caused by Auto Accidents

After years of experience, we’ve recognized that many women suffer a loss of bladder control or incontinence after auto accidents. Many women may believe that the symptoms are related to childbirth complications, but we’ve seen these symptoms in both mothers and women who have never had children. Bladder associated problems are often caused by spinal cord injuries or seat-belt induced trauma. Whether you need medication, non-invasive treatment or surgery, you deserve compensation if the accident wasn’t your fault.

We understand that a loss of bladder control or incontinence may be a sensitive subject, which is why hiring a women’s personal injury attorney who is familiar with the topic can be reassuring. We have recovered compensation for bladder related injuries, which can help them recover physically, mentally and financially. Please feel free to contact us today for a free consultation to discuss the possibility of a personal injury claim.

Suffering an Auto Accident While Pregnant

Sadly, auto accidents involving pregnant women are surprisingly common. But thankfully, despite auto accidents leading to 1500 to 5000 fetal deaths every year, it’s a rare outcome. However, various serious injuries can occur leading to both mental and physical symptoms that you can receive compensation for.

As two-thirds of our clients are women, we’re familiar with the emotional challenges pregnant women face following any accident and can provide a confident, helping hand when you need it most. We’ll prepare your injury claim to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve to pay for medical bills and the suffering you’ve endured.

Other Women’s Personal Injury Claims

You’re Not Alone

Women specific claims are real. Although many women feel their situations won’t be accepted by some men, every victim deserves compensation for their damages. We make sure that happens. With the help of an experienced women’s personal injury attorney, you can focus on your recovery knowing that your claim is in the hands of a caring and experienced legal advocate.

The reality is that sometimes women get treated differently than men in personal injury claims by ignorant people. From your deposition to your damages, it can change the way some people view your claim at every step. When searching for a women’s personal injury lawyer, make sure you contact someone who understands the difference.

Bias Against Women

Studies show that women face inequality and bias when talking about pain. No matter what pain women have, they tend to have more obstacles than men to get the treatment needed. Although they may not intend to, long-standing beliefs may lead health care providers and insurance companies to:

  • Disregard pain reports and complaints
  • Fail to provide adequate pain treatment and medication
  • Make an incorrect diagnosis by underestimating pain
  • Disregard emotional pain and psychological injuries

We know all about the consequences women suffer from accidents that weren’t their fault. We’re no strangers to the sensitive topics that many other St Petersburg personal injury lawyers may struggle with. While we hope that you haven’t suffered any of the above-mentioned accidents, please contact us for a free consultation if you have.

I was injured in a car accident a couple of years ago. The woman who rear-ended me had minimal insurance coverage, so it was not enough to cover the costs of care I needed due to my injures. I had a severe neck injury and injured both of my TM joints. I suffered from major headaches and neck pain. Despite my treating doctors indicating that I have permanent injures, my own auto insurer refused the demand for my own underinsured motorist coverage. As a result of the denial by my insurance company, Mr. Douglas filed suit on my behalf. He and his staff were wonderful to work with. They were super responsive and walked me through the entire process. He was able to obtain a good settlement for me. I would highly recommend Mr. Douglas, and his law firm.read more

Always keeping me in the loop of what was going on as well as being a straight shooter, with tons of experience and insight, allowed me to be able to make the best decisions for me and my family.

Attorney Jonathon Douglas has always been a valuable resource to all things legal for me and my family. However, legal expertise is not the only attribute that defines this lawyer. He has that additional quality of a humane perspective that isn't taught or learned, it's innate. You can find any attorney on the web or TV, but few will cut to the core of your needs as adeptly and compassionately as Jonathon.
