Plantation, Florida

Plantation is a small city in Broward County, Florida. It is about 22 square miles and has a population of approximately 93,900 people as of 2017. A century ago, Plantation was part of the Everglades and covered in several feet of water. In the early 1900s, the area was drained and reclaimed. By 1909, the Everglades Plantation Company had a contract to attempt to form rice plantations in the area. It is this company that eventually led to the city’s name. Eventually, between the early 1930s and 1950s, the area was further developed into ranches, homes, and a small planned town.

The city was incorporated in April 1953 and has expanded ever since. It is considered a safe place to live and raise a family. The city was named one of the “100 Best Communities for Young People” by America’s Promise Alliance in 2008, 2010, and 2011.

While Plantation can seem like an ideal city in Southern Florida, it is plagued with traffic accidents like the rest of the state. Several major roadways run through the city including I-595 Expressway, the Florida Turnpike, N. State Road 7, State Highway 838/W. Sunset Blvd, State Highway 842/W. Broward Ave, State Highway 817/N. University Dr, State Highway 736/SW 12th Street, N. Pine Island Rd, N. Nob Hill Rd, and Hiatus Rd.

Commercial vehicles regularly use these and other smaller roads to traverse the city. You may share the road with semi-trucks and other large trucks regularly, and one day, you or a loved one may be the victim of a crash. In this situation, you should contact an experienced Plantation truck accident attorney from Gerson & Schwartz P.A.

You Need a Plantation Truck Accident Attorney to Investigate the Crash

After you or a relative are the victim of a commercial truck accident, you need to contact a lawyer immediately. Truck accident claims differ from car accident cases significantly. One issue is that important evidence is often under the control of the truck driver, the trucking company, and other businesses. By hiring Gerson & Schwartz P.A. as soon as possible, you have a legal representative that will take steps to preserve and obtain evidence.

Our lawyers for truck accidents in Plantation will promptly investigate the cause of the crash. In many circumstances, a negligent truck driver is at fault. However, not always. We often have to look deeper to find out what happened and why. We have handled truck wreck claims caused by negligent maintenance, improperly loaded cargo, and vehicle defects, all of which may be the fault of the motor carrier or another large business.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
