For more than 30 years, we have worked tirelessly to ensure those who have suffered serious injuries are justly compensated for their losses.
Bonita Springs is growing at breakneck speed – with the city reporting a nearly 200 percent increase in population since 1990 and a 60 percent increase since 2000. More than 47,000 people call this home, and many thousands more make this their vacation destination, seeking out Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, Bonita Beach Park, Lover’s Key State Park, The Naples-Fort Myers Greyhound Track and the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs.
Of course, this residential growth and uptick in tourism has substantially increased traffic volumes in recent years.Bonita Springs Auto Accidents
The Lee County Sheriff’s Office, responsible for policing within city limits, reports more than 5,000 auto accidents in a single year. Approximately one-third of those result in personal injuries to drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists.
If you are hurt in a Bonita Springs car accident, you may be entitled to compensation from:
- Personal injury protection (PIP) benefits, up to $10,000 per F.S. 627.736, usually obtained through claimant’s own auto insurer;
- Bodily injury liability benefits (not required by law but standard with most Florida auto insurance policies), paid by negligent driver’s auto insurer;
- Uninsured/ underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) benefits, per F.S. 627.727, paid by one’s own auto insurer when at-fault driver is not identified (hit-and-run), doesn’t have insurance or lacks enough insurance to fully cover damages;
- Umbrella insurance policy, additional liability coverage paid by at-fault driver or vehicle owner’s insurer.
You may have additional recovery options, especially if the crash involved a commercial driver or vehicle. It’s important to discuss these avenues with an experienced injury lawyer in Bonita Springs.Slip-and-Fall Accidents in Bonita Springs
Although Bonita Springs was historically a retirement and second home vacation community, that has changed in recent years as businesses have been drawn in by low tax rates, ample inexpensive commercial space and rising numbers of young professionals.
These businesses owe a duty of care to invitees to make sure the property is reasonably safe and guests are warned of any dangerous conditions not immediately remedied. Failure to do so is a form of premises liability, which can include slip-and-fall injuries.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Bonita Springs are committed to helping victims of negligence obtain fair compensation for their losses. Damages may include:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of consortium.
Initial consultations are free, and services are offered on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay no attorney’s fees unless we are successful in your case.
