Sanibel Island

The incomparable beauty of Sanibel Island is one of Florida’s enduring treasures, and the Sanibel car accident attorneys at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, are pleased to support efforts to ensure that roads on the island and on Lee County’s mainland are made safer. One way in which our Sanibel personal and wrongful death attorneys contribute to that goal is through aggressive representation of accident victims. That approach includes our commitment to ensuring that careless and negligent drivers are brought to justice.

Sanibel is a barrier island offshore from Fort Myers. The city encompasses the entire island and calls itself “A Barrier Island Sanctuary.” Home to the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and to what are reputed to be the best shelling beaches in the world, Sanibel gained widespread accessibility in the early 1960s with the opening of a causeway replacing the ferry that previously linked islanders to the mainland. A higher bridge has since replaced the original. A world-class tourist destination, Sanibel and its neighbor Captiva offer 15 miles of beaches, 22 miles of bike paths, fishing, bird-watching, and other activities.

For nearly 40 years, Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, have stepped in when car accidents – especially those caused by impaired drivers – have left Southwest Florida residents and visitors injured. Our Sanibel accident attorneys have been visible proponents of programs designed to help get the menace of impaired motorists off of our roads. When individuals are injured by drunk drivers – as some 447 are yearly in Lee County – our firm has the professional know-how and the resources needed to achieve positive results for you. Nothing can replace a lost loved one or make up for permanent physical damage you’ve suffered, but our Sanibel personal injury lawyers will work to win the compensation you need to ensure access to medical care and freedom from financial worries.

Picturesque island roads offer motorcyclists a lovely and relaxing place to ride. But our Sanibel motorcycle accident lawyers know that even our island roads see several motor vehicle accidents each month. When motorcycle crashes cause injuries or take lives, the Sanibel personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at our firm have proven themselves able advocates for injury victims. Here in Lee County, some 172 motorcyclists are hurt in a year’s time, and 14 riders lose their lives on our county’s roads. Our firm has secured significant wins not only for victims of motorcycle accidents, but also for those hurt in car crashes, truck accidents, drunk-driving crashes, pedestrian accidents, and many other traffic crashes.

Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner had its beginnings as a family firm in which Mr. Scheiner worked alongside his wife who managed the office. With nearly four decades of distinguished service to the people of Southwest Florida, the firm still has that family orientation, and son Preston joined the firm in 2007 as an associate attorney. Sanibel personal injury and wrongful death attorneys at our firm remain committed to Mr. Scheiner’s ideals of treating each client with dignity and respect, while providing effective legal advice and representation. In 40 years our firm has grown significantly, and we have a full range of legal, medical, and investigative resources at our disposal. We’re ready to fight for your rights. Call our firm for a free consultation. You pay nothing for our services unless we win.
