With its penchant for recovering from such devastating events as a downtown fire and powerful hurricanes, tenacious might be a good descriptor for Arcadia and its people. At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, our Arcadia personal injury and wrongful death lawyers also are known for their tenacity. We also know that Florida roads are the site of more than 235,000 traffic crashes per year. Those crashes leave nearly 200,000 people hurt and, in many cases, incapacitated because of their injuries. We are assertive advocates for the innocent victims of careless and negligent drivers.

The county seat and only incorporated municipality in DeSoto County, Arcadia is situated at the junction of U.S. Highway 17 and SR 70. This centerpoint for north/south and east/west travel ideally positions the city’s historic downtown area to draw visitors and its shops and cafes do just that. Named for the daughter of an early settler, Arcadia is now the site of the All-Florida Championship Rodeo in March each year.

Although DeSoto County is a locale of largely open spaces and fewer people than some of the state’s crowded coastal and metropolitan areas, Arcadia car accident attorneys at our firm understand that traffic accidents still pose problems and disrupt residents’ lives. In fact, we know that more than half of the fatal accidents that occur statewide happen in open country and residential districts. If you or someone you care about has suffered harm because a driver was careless, distracted or drove under the influence of alcohol, our Arcadia personal injury lawyers know how to take action to ensure that your rights are protected. When we take your case, you can be assured of professionals who understand how to build a compelling injury claim. We’ll work to recover the monetary damages you deserve.

Particularly when your traffic crash involves an impaired motorist, injuries can be serious. Our Arcadia car accident lawyers know that speeding is a common factor in alcohol-related crashes. Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner is a firm that is widely known for its support of programs that aim to remove drunk drivers from Florida’s roads. Perhaps because we’ve represented so many families who have been touched by the tragedy that drunk drivers cause, we are dedicated to providing aggressive representation for those hurt by impaired motorists and for families who have lost loved ones.

Our firm’s promotion of motorcycle enjoyment and safety also has made our name a well-known one in the state. Mr. Scheiner’s interest in and support of those goals sets an excellent example for our Arcadia motorcycle accident lawyers. We take on the responsibility of representing riders who have been hurt when other drivers fail to exercise caution or choose to drive recklessly. Motorcycles are no match for the size and weight of cars and trucks, so the motorcyclists we represent often are faced with serious injuries or the likelihood of long-term disability. Our experience in handling motorcycle accident cases enables our Arcadia personal injury attorneys to achieve positive results, through negotiation and, if needed, through litigation.

When you or someone you love is the victim of serious injuries because of another driver’s negligence or carelessness, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, medical costs, and financial losses. At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, Arcadia personal injury and wrongful death lawyers offer you a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, drunk-driving accident, pedestrian accident, or any other incident that has left you hurt because of someone else’s actions. If we take your case, you pay no fees unless we win.
