Highlands County

Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, is the law firm Highlands Countians call on when they need proven skills in handling motor vehicle crash cases. Our Highlands County personal injury attorneys have the experience that makes a real difference when it comes to achieving results for our clients. In the nearly four decades that we’ve served accident victims throughout Central and Southwest Florida, our firm has built a respected reputation for treating people with dignity and working for justice.

Created in 1921, Highlands County takes its name from the local terrain. The Lake Wales Ridge that runs through the central part of Florida extends from north to south through Highlands County, giving the area higher elevations than the state’s coastal and other locales. The county includes three incorporated cities and more than a dozen unincorporated communities. The county seat is Sebring, which is situated about mid-county. The 2010 census reports that the county’s population now numbers 98,786.

Highlands County personal injury and wrongful death lawyers in our firm know that Florida’s growth and its popularity as a vacation destination mean that the state’s roads and highways see a lot of activity. While about 60% of all traffic crashes happen in business districts, areas like Highlands County that feature plenty of open road and residential neighborhoods, also have their share of accidents. In fact, Florida’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles confirms that nearly 54% of the fatal crashes that happen in the state take place in residential districts or in open country. With more than six fatal crashes happening daily across the state that means that too many families must face the heartbreak of losing a loved one. Mr. Scheiner and his wife started the law firm in 1971 and were later joined by their son Preston, who is an associate attorney. Although Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, is now one of the area’s largest firms, we still have that family orientation – a unique connection that drives our service to those who have lost family members in accidents.

Our firm’s Highlands County car accident lawyers understand that impaired drivers are a likely cause when families lose loved ones in traffic crashes. We know that almost 40% of the fatalities from traffic crashes can be traced to alcohol-related accidents. Here in Highlands County, traffic crashes number almost 2 per day and about a third of the fatalities that result are attributed to alcohol involvement. Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner works to promote safety on the state’s roads and to support the efforts of law enforcement officers to get drunk drivers out from behind the wheel. If you’ve been harmed by a drunk driver or lost a loved one in an alcohol-related accident, call on our Highlands County drunk-driving accident attorneys for help through this difficult time.
