DeSoto County

DeSoto County offers its residents and visitors the opportunity to enjoy wide vistas of lakes, rivers, and pasturelands. At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we know how appealing that sense of space can be. But we are also keenly aware of the fact that many of the accidents that occur on Florida roads happen in open country. In fact, more than 77 crashes per day across our state occur in just such settings. On average, about 2 of those accidents prove fatal. When DeSoto County residents are hurt in traffic accidents, they call on the experienced personal injury attorneys at our firm.

Named for the Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto, DeSoto County was carved out of land that originally constituted part of Manatee County. Created in 1887, the Southwest Florida area includes one incorporated city – county seat Arcadia – and a handful of unincorporated communities. The area has seen slow but steady growth, and reported a 2010 population in excess of 34,000. Citrus and cattle ranching are leading commercial ventures in DeSoto County.

DeSoto motorcycle accident lawyers at our firm understand how appealing our county’s open roads are to motorcyclists and their passengers. As a motorcycle enthusiast, Bruce L. Scheiner has led his firm in its efforts to promote safety and awareness of motorcycles and of the pleasures of riding. At the same time, no one knows better than Mr. Scheiner that Florida sees more than 8,300 motorcycle crashes yearly, and that more than 7,000 motorcyclists are left with injuries from those accidents. Our firm has been privileged to represent dozens of injured motorcyclists each year, providing the aggressive representation riders need in order to recover monetary damages from the negligent or careless drivers responsible for hurting them.

Every day, Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, speak with Southwest Floridians who have had their lives disrupted by motor vehicle accidents and other injury-causing events. Among the types of cases we handle are:

Perhaps because Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner started as a family enterprise by Mr. Scheiner and his wife who were later joined by their son Preston, an associate attorney, ours remains a family firm at heart. That emphasis drives our DeSoto accident lawyers to form a special bond with those who have lost a family member or been injured in an alcohol-related crash. If this tragedy has touched your family, we invite you to contact our DeSoto personal injury and wrongful death lawyers to discuss your claim for damages.

If you or someone you care about has been hurt by the carelessness or negligence of another driver, call Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured. We will evaluate your case at no cost. If we represent you, there will be no fees unless we win.
