Clewiston

Clewiston’s lakeside locale offers visitors and residents a unique vista of one of the nation’s largest freshwater lakes. At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, our Clewiston personal injury and wrongful death attorneys are dedicated to providing clients with a uniquely professional and respectful approach to legal representation. Our reputation for quality and for achieving results for the victims of traffic accidents has led residents across Hendry County and Southwest Florida to trust our Clewiston car accident lawyers when they need guidance after a motor vehicle accident.

Calling itself “America’s Sweetest Town,” Clewiston is situated on the southwest shore of Lake Okeechobee. There, Florida’s Okeechobee Waterway affords boat access to Clewiston from either coast. Ideally located for water sports enthusiasts, the city is a favorite of fishing fans. Incorporated in 1925, the Hendry County community was the center of production by U.S. Sugar Corporation, which gave Clewiston its nickname. Farming and cattle ranching also drove commercial growth in the area. Clewiston’s population in 2010 numbered just over 7,000.

Florida roads see some 235,000-plus accidents yearly, we know that more than 80% of those crashes cause injuries. We take on cases when individuals have suffered physical damage that disrupts their lives and may leave them with long-term consequences. When you’re hurt in a car crash, serious wounds might include spinal cord damage, multiple broken bones, head injuries, neck injuries, organ damage or many other kinds of damage. Our Clewiston car accident attorneys know how expensive medical care is, and we believe you shouldn’t have to bear the cost of treatment when a careless or negligent drive is to blame for your injuries.

In many cases, drivers who cause accidents are found to be under the influence of alcohol. Clewiston accident lawyers at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner know that about a third of the traffic crashes that occur nationwide are attributed to alcohol involvement. Perhaps because our firm was started by Mr. Scheiner and his wife, who were later joined by associate attorney son Preston, we have maintained our family approach through our nearly four decades of growth. That’s why we feel a special bond with families who have lost loved ones to drunk drivers or who have seen serious injuries affect a loved one’s health. We’re here to help, and we pledge aggressive representation of your interests. We won’t rest until the drunk driver who harmed you or hurt your family is brought to justice.

Just as we fight for the rights of those hurt by drunk drivers, our Clewiston motorcycle accident attorneys are known for their many years of experience representing motorcyclists and their passengers who have been hurt by reckless or negligent motorists. We know that drivers often fail to see motorcycles, so our firm has been an active advocate of motorcycle awareness and safety. Mr. Scheiner’s personal enthusiasm for motorcycles has spearheaded our dedication to the needs of motorcyclists, and we continue to handle dozens of motorcycle injury cases each year. If a driver has hurt you in a motorcycle crash, we offer you a free evaluation of your case.

Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner is a leader in serving the people of Southwest Florida in all types of accident cases. Examples of the issues we handle include:
