When it comes to being vigilant about reducing the number of drunk driving-related deaths and injuries, Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner Personal Injury Lawyers knows that actions speak louder than words.
With almost four decades of experience fighting for the legal rights of people victimized by drunk drivers, the family of attorneys and support staff at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Personal Injury Lawyers is painfully aware of the devastating effects of this serious crime. “Every day, we deal with the tragedy facing victims and their families, helping them put their lives back together after a drunk driver has turned their world upside down”, says Bruce Scheiner.
In addition to our aggressive representation of drunk driving crash victims, we are steadfast supporters of key organizations that are dedicated to reducing and eliminating the threat caused by drunk drivers on our roadways. Our firm is a key supporter of Mother’s Against Drunk Driving, (M.A.D.D.), in Southwest Florida, having worked closely with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office to restart a local chapter in 2008-09. Additionally, we found a donor for local office space and renovation of M.A.D.D.’s Cape Coral offices.
Supporting Law Enforcement’s Fight Against Drunk Driving
One of the most effective ways to reduce the number of impaired drivers on our streets and highways is through the help of all responsible motorists. One such program, called “Mobile Eyes Against Drunk Driving”, is a joint partnership between the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, M.A.D.D. and Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner Personal Injury Lawyers. Any 9-1-1 caller reporting a suspected drunk driver and acknowledging the “Mobile Eyes” program becomes eligible for a $100.00 reward if the impaired driver is stopped, and the responding officer makes an arrest for DUI.
Other ways Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner Personal Injury Lawyers works to keep local drivers safe behind the wheel:
• Pays for more than 20 “Don’t Drink and Drive” billboards that are posted on main roads throughout Southwest Florida over the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays.
• Supports the efforts of local law enforcement by bringing catered meals to officers who are staffing weekend sobriety checkpoints throughout Southwest Florida.
• Works with the media and other advocacy groups to increase awareness of the tragedy endured by individual families, and the continuing carnage caused by drunk driving crashes.
Lee County Sheriff, Mike Scott says, “Mr. Scheiner has long been a valued ally in helping us alert the community about the dangers of drunk driving, and my office is pleased to partner with his firm’s efforts, and those of the local M.A.D.D. chapter.”
