This Parkland Personal Injury Lawyer represents injured clients throughout the City of Parkland.
The name “Parkland” comes from the “parklike” nature of the City. Zoning laws in the City are designed to protect this characteristic. Originally, no stores or traffic lights were allowed in the City, but this has changed over the years. There are three zip codes in the City of Parkland.
As of the year 2010, 23,962 people lived in Parkland. As of 2016, it was estimated that 31,507 people lived in the City. Many of these people are injured in accidents, and Mr. Quackenbush represents many of them in their personal injury cases.
The City of Parkland was incorporated in 1963. It is governed by a City Commission and run by a City Manager. Parkland has a Mayor, a Vice Mayor, three City Commissioners and a City Clerk. Lawsuits against the City of Parkland are referred to as cases of “sovereign immunity” (any case against a city, county or the State is called “sovereign immunity” cases). These cases must be approved by the City Commission. In addition, sovereign immunity cases carry with them certain limitations and restrictions – such as notice requirements and a $200,000 ceiling on the amount of money that can be recovered against the governmental entity.
Parkland is generally a very “well-off” community. Many wealthy people live in the City, and the average income is very high. For example, as of the year 2008, it was estimated that the median income for a household in Parkland was $277,072.
Because of the affluent nature of the area, many of the people injured in accidents in Parkland lose a lot of money as a result of not being able to work. When somebody misses time from work due to injuries caused in an accident, they may be able to pursue what’s called a “lost wage” claim. In a lost wage claim, the injured person may be able to recover compensation for his or her time missed from work. In addition, if it’s possible that the injured person will not be able to work in the future or may not be able to work as much, he or she may be able to pursue a claim for “loss of future earning capacity.” A loss of future earning capacity claim indicates that the injured person is going to lose money in the future as a result of his or her injuries, and that injured person is entitled to get compensated for this.
The potential to lose income in the future is difficult to quantify or calculate. As such, if it’s possible that you’ll lose income in the future as a result of your accident, Mr. Quackenbush will hire a “vocational rehabilitation” expert. This expert will evaluate you and your job and predict what type of work, if any, you’ll be able to do in the future. In addition, Mr. Quackenbush will hire an “economist” – an expert who will quantify or calculate the amount of monetary loss you will sustain as a result of your not being able to work or not being able to work at the same level.

Mr. Quackenbush represents people in Parkland in all types of personal injury cases. These include cases which involve automobile, vehicle and car accident, crash and wrecks. They also include premises liability cases. If you’ve been injured on the property of another person or entity, you may have a premises liability case if the negligence of the other person or entity caused your fall.
Premises liability cases oftentimes involve slip and fall and trip & fall accidents. They also include negligent security cases. A negligent security case results when somebody is the victim of a crime and injured as a result due to the lack of or improper security on the property of another person or entity. If the other person or entity did not provide adequate or sufficient security, a crime happened as a result and you were injured as a victim of the crime, you may have a premises liability case. Your premises liability case will be much better if the crime happened in a high-crime area. This is true because, if the crime happened in a high-crime area, then the owner should have known that proper security was required.
