Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner Recognized with Outreach Effort of the Year Award
Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition acknowledges firm for help with driving safety.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (July 30, 2018) – Nearly everyone who drives in Southwest Florida is bound to encounter one of several new roundabouts on our roads. And because of an awareness campaign funded by Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, more drivers will know what they need to do to stay safe. The firm was recently recognized with the Outreach Effort of the Year Award from the Lee County Injury Prevention Coalition (IPC) for its support of a televised public service announcement on roundabouts.
When the initial seed money for the ad ran out last year, Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner stepped in to provide the tens of thousands of dollars worth of funding necessary for it to continue to run.
“Because of this, it is estimated that the safety messages in the PSA were seen by 4,696,000 people, or 99.6 percent of all TV households in the region at least once,” Lee County IPC Chairman Brian Raimondo said.
This recognition is in keeping with the firm’s commitment to improving the quality of life for people in Southwest Florida. Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner supports a number of community organizations, including Captains for Clean Water, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) and the Annual Make a Difference Awards for local students.
“We have the responsibility to represent folks who have been injured by the negligence of others, but preventing injuries from happening in the first place is a passion of our firm and family,” Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner trial attorney P.J. Scheiner said. “This mission was started by my mother, who worked closely with organizations such as MADD and Lee County IPC, and all of us are proud to carry on this legacy.”
