The motto of the City of Tamarac is “The City For Your Life!” The City was incorporated in 1963. There are six zip codes in Tamarac.

The name “Tamarac” comes from the reverse-spelling of a group of carwashes (“Caramat”) that were owned by the developer that first bought the land on which the City of Tamarac was built in the early-1960’s.

Tamarac is governed by a City Commission and is run by a City Manager. The City has a Mayor, a Vice Mayor, three City Commissioners, and a City Clerk. Settlements of lawsuits against the City must be approved by the City Commission. These cases are known as cases of “sovereign immunity” (which includes a case against any City, County or the State of Florida). Sovereign immunity cases carry with them certain restrictions, including notice requirements (you must give the governmental entity six-months notice before filing a lawsuit) and caps on the amount of money you can recover (typically $200,000).

If you decide upon Mr. Quackenbush as your lawyer, he will work on contingency – meaning that he won’t be paid for his work until you’ve made a recovery in your case. As such, there is absolutely no risk to you.

There are 12.08 square miles total in Tamarac. Of these, .46 square miles are made up of water. Water-related activities are a big part of the lifestyle in South Florida and can be a lot of fun.

15.4 percent of homes in Tamarac included children as of the year 2010. 13.4% of the people in Tamarac were children under the age of 19 as of the year 2000. Tamarac is therefore a very kid/family-friendly City. Mr. Quackenbush represents children in their personal injury cases of all sorts. When a minor brings a personal injury case, it is technically the minor’s parent who must act as the “Plaintiff” and bring the lawsuit. When the case is settled, it must frequently be approved by a judge.

Whether the case involving the minor needs to be approved by a judge depends on the amount being received by the child. If the child is receiving more than $15,000 (after attorneys fees, medical bills, costs, etc. are taken out), then the settlement must be approved by a judge. If not, then the settlement will not typically need to be approved by a judge. Note that the minimum number of $15,000 applies to the amount of money being received by the child, not the total settlement. For example, if the total settlement is $20,000 but the child is only receiving $10,000 out of the settlement (after attorney’s fees, medical bills and costs are taken out), then the settlement will not need to be approved by a judge (even though the total settlement is over $15,000). On the other hand, if the total settlement is $25,000 and the child is receiving $16,000, then the settlement will need to be approved by a judge since the amount the child is receiving is over $15,000.

These judge-approved cases will oftentimes result in structured settlements, wherein the total amount is distributed to the child in installments once he or she reaches the age of majority (18) and becomes an adult.
