Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, are pleased to ensure local residents access to excellent legal services for all types of injury claims.

In fact, here in Collier County, some 1,953 accidents happened in the most recent year for which state statistics are available, and 1,778 people were hurt in those crashes. When you’re the victim of a traffic accident, the attorneys you can rely on for knowledgeable advice are the Everglades City car accident lawyers at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner.
Only half an hour southeast of Naples, Everglades City is a fishing village of about 400 people. Perched on Chokoloskee Bay and shielded from the Gulf of Mexico by Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands, the area was originally a Native American settlement. Slow growth began after the Civil War, but it was advertising magnate Barron Collier’s massive Southwest Florida land purchase in the early 20th century that led to eventual incorporation of the city in 1923. Located five miles below the Tamiami Trail, Everglades City offers easy access to Everglades national park, Big Cypress National preserve, and the Ten Thousand Islands. Kayaking, fishing, and watersports offer appealing pastimes for visitors.
Although Everglades City is one of our area’s more remote locales, residents and visitors still find themselves at risk from careless drivers. Everglades City injury lawyers at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner know that 280 Collier County accidents were linked to alcohol. Nationwide, about a third of the traffic crashes that occur are alcohol-related. When you’ve been hurt by a drunk driver, your injuries are likely to be serious. Impaired motorists are responsible for 187 injuries in our county yearly, and they cause at least one death each month. Because our firm has been a leading proponent of programs aimed at getting drunk drivers off of Florida roads, we are known as particularly aggressive advocates for the victims of impaired motorists.
