About Lee County, FL
Lee County is a populous, historic county in southwest Florida with modern roots going back all the way to 1850 when Fort Myers was constructed during the Seminole Wars. Since that time, Lee County has grown to nearly 620,000 people, with the Fort Myers and Cape Coral metropolitan area dominating the socioeconomic landscape.
Today, Lee County is perhaps best known for the fact that many MLB teams make use of the county (and have done so for decades) for spring training. Aside from that, however, the county continues to serve as an important economic center in the state, with thriving construction, retail, and hospitality industries.
Lee County is well connected to other metro centers in Florida. Interstate 75 connects Lee County with Fort Lauderdale and Miami to the south, and Tampa to the north. Further, ferry terminals (and Boca Grande port) serve passengers looking to journey to ports in Key West or the busy port in Fort Lauderdale.
Lee County Vehicle Accidents - The Statistics Are Concerning
Lee County is among the most dangerous counties in the state of Florida when it comes to motor vehicle accident risks. According to a USA Today report that used the state’s integrated report exchange system for data, in 2017 alone, there were 111 fatalities and 7,836 injuries due to traffic crashes in Lee County. In fact, the risk of motor vehicle injury and death is substantial enough that the Lee Health Trauma Center and the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization have created a project called “Driving Down Fatalities” to reduce the incidence of traffic-related injuries and death in the county.
Lee County does not fare better when it comes to other personal injury risks, such as slip and fall accidents and boating accidents. Since the county is on the coast, it attracts a number of boating enthusiasts and other recreational visitors to its waterways, and unfortunately, the statistics reflect the high risk of injury posed to boaters in the county. According to an annual report conducted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, there were 43 boating accidents in Lee County in 2017 alone. Statewide studies have also revealed the unfortunate frequency of slip and fall deaths in Lee County, with the county recording 94 slip and fall-related deaths in 2017 alone.
What Makes Us Different?
In the wake of an accident, plaintiffs have many options in choosing an attorney. A quick search online or a glance through the local listings will reveal a number of personal injury firms in Lee County (and its surroundings), many of which seem to be offering the same basic services: free consultations and contingency fees.
So, what makes us different?
Randall Spivey, the firm’s president and founder, will personally manage your case. He is Board Certified in civil trial law by the Florida Bar, an honor achieved by less than 1% of Florida lawyers. Mr. Spivey has handled thousands of personal injury and wrongful death cases. He is AV rated as pre-eminent by Martindale Hubbell, the highest peer rating in the country.
It is important to understand that personal injury litigation firms adopt different strategies to stay in business. Many firms churn through a high volume of clients. They seek to negotiate quick and easy settlements — the sooner they can reach a positive resolution, the better, as it will minimize their overall costs. With such firms, if they can secure a $100,000 damage recovery for a client whose claim is potentially worth $1 million, they might still view that as a “win.”
We take a different approach. Unlike many of our competitors, we invest a great deal of time and energy into each client, maintaining a highly-engaged and communicative partnership with the client through every stage of the litigation process. This ensures that we have a deep understanding of the client and their case, which gives us the insight necessary to act appropriately on their behalf.
We make use of this informational advantage in conjunction with our aggressive litigation mentality. We are willing and able to take a case all the way to trial for our client. Opposing counsel is aware of our willingness to do so and must therefore take your claims seriously from the beginning. This enables us to negotiate favorable settlements early on and maximize the damages.
