Treasure Coast Personal Injury Lawyer
Proudly Representing Victims in Florida
Located along the Atlantic Ocean, the Treasure Coast is a region of Florida that includes Martin County, Palm Beach County, Brevard County, St. Lucie County, and Indian River County. The region earned its name in the early 20th century, when salvagers started to find Spanish treasure from a fleet that was lost in a hurricane back in 1715. The discovery of this treasure brought huge fame and international attention to the Treasure Coast. The term was first coined by reporters of the Press Journal and the name spread in the last few decades. Many in the area saw the name as profitable so that they could distinguish themselves from the Gold Coast, which they thought had unappealing connotations.
Visitors who are traveling along the coast can discover quaint little sea towns and bustling coastal cities, with a wide range of activities and events. Those interested in exploring nature can find an abundance of lakes, rivers, and national parks along the beautiful Treasure Coast. In addition, Disneyworld and the Kennedy Space center are just a short distance away.

Medical devices are often incredibly complex and take effort to upkeep. Medical professionals sometimes do not take the time to learn how to properly use the devices or neglect to regularly check them. This can result in harm to the patient, for which the medical professionals are responsible.
