Avon Park

The small-town charm of cities like Avon Park offers a haven for many citizens. But at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we understand that Florida roads can pose safety challenges, even away from the bustle of the state’s metropolitan centers. We know that more than 235,000 accidents happen statewide, according to the most recent figures from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Those crashes involve 338,633 drivers. When a motorist has failed to exercise caution behind the wheel or has chosen to drive under the influence of alcohol, crashes happen, leaving people hurt and lives changed. When a driver’s carelessness hurts you or someone you love, our Avon Park personal injury and wrongful death lawyers are prepared to fight for your rights.

Among the older cities in Highlands County, Avon Park began its life as the Town of Lake Forest. Connecticut native Oliver Martin Crosby spearheaded permanent settlement in the area with his arrival in 1884 to study wildlife. An early settler from England convinced her neighbors that Lake Forest was reminiscent of her native Stratford-upon-Avon, and the name change to Avon Park took place, along with incorporation in 1886. Calling itself the “City of Charm,” Avon Park now has about 9,000 residents. Citrus is the chief local industry.
