Late Friday afternoon, on December 4, 2009, a Lee County Jury returned a verdict in excess of $44.9 million as restitution for the catastrophic and life-altering injuries sustained by Cape Coral resident Gerald Aloia in a motorcycle collision which occurred on October 21, 2006. At the time of the collision, Mr. Aloia was riding home on his motorcycle to care for his disabled daughter when he was struck from behind by a Chevrolet Corvette driven by the Defendant.

Client Reviews
Bruce L. Scheiner and his team were the most friendly people I've ever met they genuinely cared about me... I highly recommend them Brooke Krause
I was really satisfied with services I received. Bruce is not only an attorney, but like family. He got me three times what I thought I would receive and was always there when I needed an answer on something. I'd say he is the best attorney I have dealt with in my 68 years. Harry Zulauf

BLS was incredibly helpful with my case, even during the hard challenging periods of my case Bruce & PJ were always just a call away. Even though they couldn't answer my call at that direct moment, they ALWAYS made a point to call me back. The staff at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner were always helpful and friendly, if they didn't have the answer they would always call me back with what I needed to know. Robert Drawdy
