At Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, we believe injury victims and their families deserve immediate access to experienced legal help.
It is a principle upon which Bruce L. Scheiner founded the firm in 1971, and it is a cornerstone belief of the firm today, where Mr. Scheiner continues to work alongside his wife, Cheryl Scheiner, and son, Preston J. Scheiner, who has spent more than a decade building a reputation as a successful personal injury and wrongful death trial attorney. While still a family law firm, today Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, is among the largest law firms in Southwest Florida dedicated to personal injury and wrongful death litigation.
Our family firm has grown up with the City of Cape Coral, which incorporated the year after our firm’s founding, when The Cape was home to just 10,000 residents.
Today, our Cape Coral personal injury lawyers work in a thriving city of 180,000 people, eight elementary schools, six middle schools and 5 high schools. In 2017 Forbes named Cape Coral #1 out of 25 in "America's Fastest Growing Cities of 2017." That same year, it was also named the most dangerous place to walk in the nation by Road Safe America.Cape Coral Traffic Injuries
Traffic collisions are by far the most common type of injury claim in Cape Coral.
Statewide, statistics show about 400,000 traffic accidents are reported to law enforcement each year in Florida, killing more than 3,000 motorists and injuring 250,000 people. Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports about 12,000 Lee County traffic collisions kill more than 100 motorists each year. Another 8,000 are seriously injured.
America’s Fastest Growing City has about 5,000 traffic collisions a year, according to the Cape Coral Police Department. More than one-third of fatal accidents involve a drunk driver. Motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians are also at increased risk. Drivers over the age of 65 are most commonly involved in collisions, followed by new drivers ages 15-19.
For five decades, our Cape Coral personal injury lawyers have been fighting for the rights of those injured or killed in traffic collisions. At Associates and Bruce L. Schiener, Attorney for the Inured, we believe our clients are best served by our soul focus on personal injury and wrongful death litigation in Southwest Florida.Types of Cape Coral Injury Claims

Negligence claims in Florida tort actions are outlined in Florida Statute 768 and require plaintiff to prove a defendant owed a duty of care, breached that duty and that breach resulted in compensable injuries (damages). Florida’s comparative fault statute (F.S. 768.81) permits some injury victims to still pursue damages even if found partially at fault. Consulting an experienced Cape Coral injury lawyer will best determine your rights in your particular situation.
Other types of claims involving premises liability, defective products, medical malpractice, or construction accidents, may involve one or more legal theories of liability, including strict liability, negligent entrustment or vicarious liability. Choosing a Cape Coral personal injury lawyer dedicated to representing clients in all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims can help ensure your chosen law firm does not overlook a potential avenue or recovery in your case.
