At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we know that our area’s Gulf of Mexico shores and many cultural and public events draw visitors from across the U.S. and beyond.

Settlers began to trickle into the area that is the modern coastal city of Venice after the Civil War. Cattle, citrus, and fishing were among the Sarasota County area’s early commercial pursuits. As major landowners were framing plans for development, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers union purchased property and spearheaded the community’s design and construction. Venice officially became a city in 1927. Known as the Island of Venice, the community’s downtown area is accessible by bridges and completely water-surrounded. Venice beaches are known for their beauty, but also for the presence of prehistoric shark’s teeth, giving the city its nickname of the Sharks Tooth Capital of the World.
