Our Car Accident Lawyers:
We have three lawyers who specialize in car accident claims. Sean McQuaid, the Firm President as of January 1, 2020 leads the personal injury department. His impressive work in handling car accident cases has led to an incredibly large and loyal client base. In fact, Sean has been elected to serve as the President for the St. Petersburg Bar Association from 2020-21. The St. Pete Bar is the premier attorney organization in the area and consists of over 1,000 lawyers and judges.
Sean is a competitor. He grew up playing sports and attended Princeton University from 1993-97. His senior year, Sean was the captain of the baseball team and led the team from his position as a catcher. His aggressive and competitive nature continued in law school where he graduated in 2000 with his law degree and MBA. While at Stetson, he was part of the moot court team, writing briefs and supporting them with arguments at competitions around the country. Simply put, Sean leads by example and for the past 20 years has established himself as a force in the legal community where he now specializes in car accident cases.
Aubrey Dicus is the past-President of the Firm and served in that position for over 20 years. Aubrey is also a past-President of the St. Petersburg Bar Association. Since his graduation from Stetson College of Law in 1974, he has handled every type of car accident injury claim that exists. Aubrey has tried several car accident cases to multi-million verdicts in his career, but what makes him different is the effort that he puts into every case. Aubrey’s never-ending devotion to his clients, sharp trial skills, and professionalism have established him as a legend in the legal community.
Jonathon Douglas is the newest partner to Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A. and has established himself as a car accident trial specialist. Since his graduation from Stetson College of Law in 2005, he has tried countless cases. For six years he was a partner in a well-known insurance defense law firm in St. Petersburg where he learned all of the tricks of the trade that insurance companies employ. He has taken those skills to the Plaintiff’s side where he now represents victims of every type of car accident.
Why Hire Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A.?
Between our three car accident lawyers, we have a combined 71 years of experience! There is no law firm in St. Petersburg that comes close to matching our combined legal talent and reputation. That is why clients have been loyal to us over the decades. It is not uncommon for our Firm to have represented many generations of family members because they know they can count on us to always be there.
What Do the Car Accident Lawyers at Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A. Charge?
One might think that with all of the impressive accolades and reputation that our lawyers will be more expensive. What you may not realize is that all car accident lawyers charge the same. Car accident cases are handled on a contingency. This means that the lawyer is paid ⅓ of the amount of money that is recovered. This applies whether you have the best car accident lawyer, or someone else. Therefore, if you are paying the same amount regardless of the person whom you choose, wouldn’t you want to hire the best lawyer possible?
Where Do the Car Accident Lawyers Handle Cases?
While our car accident lawyers handle cases throughout Florida, most of our cases are in Tampa Bay. Because we handle cases in the same geographic area so regularly, we are familiar with the ways the insurance companies treat cases, know the best medical providers to help treat your injuries, and most importantly, know the judges that may ultimately hear your case. Our office is in St. Petersburg, so the majority of our cases are in Pinellas County.

We are different from other law firms and are proud of that distinction. Our firm has been rated by US News & World Report as a Tier 1 law firm for decades. But, our accolades and awards only tell half the story. We are different because we care about the well being of our clients. In every case, we want them to get better and to put as much money as possible in their pockets. We are tireless advocates for our clients and often develop long-lasting bonds with them over the course of the case. Our clients normally have our cell phones or email and can contact us with questions about their case at any time. We do not advertise on buses, billboards, on the radio or on television because we don’t need to. We consider our clients and our cases to be head and shoulders above the rest. Over the decades, the lawyers and insurance companies have learned that we do not play dirty tricks or games with our cases and we have found that our clients get rewarded for that. We know that our clients recover more in their cases due to our personalized knowledge of the cases and our willingness to aggressively pursue maximum recoveries.
