Florida Keys

The group of islands that appear to be dangling from the southern peninsula of Florida are collectively known as the Florida Keys. The islands were formed from an ancient coral reef that was exposed over time, coupled with the accumulation of limestone and sand. Similar to mainland Florida’s history, the earliest known inhabitants of the Keys include the Tequesta and Calusa Native Americans. Ponce de Leon originally coined the island group as “Los Martires” or the Martyrs, based on their desolate look upon their approach. The islands later became known as the Keys, based on the Spanish word “cayo”, which means “small island”.

Of the mixture of inhabited and uninhabited islands scattered at the southern-most region of Florida, Key West is the most well-known. Once representing the largest town in Florida, Key West historically prospered due to the many shipwrecks that occurred off of the coast, as well as its close proximity to Cuba and the Bahamas, which brought trade and shipping revenues to the Key. Until the early 1900s, the Keys were only accessible by boat. In 1910, the Florida East Coast Railway was extended down to Key West. Access by train continued until 1935 when a hurricane destroyed the railroad trestles. Rather than restore the original train route, the pathway was rebuilt for automobile use by widening and reinforcing what is now known as the Overseas Highway, or US 1.

The Florida Keys offer a variety of experiences. The tropical weather draws thousands of tourists to its beaches and resorts each year. The Keys are known for prolific fishing and boating. There are many parks that are built within the natural habitat of the Keys, featuring its tropical plants and trees, birds, and other wildlife. The wonders of the ocean can be explored through snorkeling, scuba diving, or by taking a ride in a glass-bottom boat. Cities such as Key West, Islamorada, and Marathon offer a laid-back beach community lifestyle, with a mixture of outdoor recreation activities, as well as shopping, restaurants, resorts and hotels, and an active nightlife. Approximately 77,000 people live in the Keys, of which 26,039 live in Key West, 6,481 live in Islamorada, and 8,701 live in Marathon. Commute times are generally less than 15 minutes, as most people work in the town that they live in. Residents living throughout the islands have different racial and ethnic backgrounds, as 68.3% are white, 22.5% are Hispanic, and 6.62% are African American.

Settling a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury claims are often resolved through a settlement or in court. Settlements frequently occur when insurance companies are involved. Taking a case to trial involves attorney, court, and filings fees. In most cases, insurance companies will go the route of settlement as a means to keep costs low. While as a plaintiff, you may receive a greater award if the case goes to trial, you will also incur similar costs associated with a lawsuit. It’s easy to see why almost 90% of personal injury claims are settled outside of the courtroom.
