Hendry County

Hendry County’s seal proclaims it to be “Sweet, Friendly … Country.” At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we are committed to serving the people of Hendry County with dignity and respect when they need legal guidance following a traffic accident. Perhaps because we were founded as a family firm and remain guided by Mr. Scheiner’s family principles, we are a leading choice when Hendry County residents need lawyers who are accessible and knowledgeable professionals.

Located between Glades County to the north and Collier County to the south, Hendry County came into being in 1923, created from land that was originally part of Lee County. Named after Francis A. Hendry, a local politician, the county has two incorporated municipalities and a handful of unincorporated communities. LaBelle is the county seat of this largely agricultural county. Hendry’s 2010 population was just over 39,000.

Although Hendry is one of Florida’s more rural locales, the Hendry County personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at our firm know that many traffic accidents occur on Florida’s picturesque country roads. In fact, more than half of the fatal accidents in our state happen in residential districts and open country. Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports more than 22 accidents per month in Hendry County. In a year’s time, 287 people are hurt in traffic crashes here in our county; at least one person per month dies from those injuries. Our firm can help when a careless or negligent driver causes an accident and leaves you injured.
