Collier County Personal Injury Lawyers
If you’ve been injured due to the negligence, recklessness, or wrongful misconduct of another party, then Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. can help you bring an action against the defendant for damages.
Florida law generally entitles the victims of such misconduct to compensation for their injuries. However, success is not solely a matter of securing a settlement or favorable trial verdict — you will want to secure the maximum possible compensation that is available to you.

Over the years, we have handled numerous cases for plaintiffs in Collier County (as well as other parts of southern and southwestern Florida).

About Collier County
Collier County is located in southwest Florida and was carved out of nearby Lee County in 1923. Though the county is relatively less populous (with around 320,000 people as of the most recent census in 2010), its largest city (Naples) is considered a part of the Fort Myers-Naples metro area, which stretches across two counties.
Collier County is considered a golfing mecca, and Naples itself has over 80 championship golf courses alone, drawing both domestic and international visitors. As such, despite the fact that Collier County is “less populous,” it is generally quite busy, and the year-round presence of tourists may contribute to an increased likelihood of accidents.
Collier County Injury Statistics
According to data compiled on Florida’s Integrated Report Exchange System, Collier County experienced 5,459 total motor vehicle crashes in 2018 alone, which led to 3,209 injuries and 43 fatalities. This data ties into general trends regarding unintentional injuries and health outcomes in Florida (and Collier County specifically). A comprehensive report put together by the Florida Department of Health showed that unintentional injuries ranked among the top 10 causes of death in Collier County, with motor vehicle accidents, unintentional poisoning, and drowning being the most prominent.
Personal Injury Litigation - We Can Help
In the wake of an accident, it’s quite normal for the plaintiff to be confused or even overwhelmed with their options for pursuing litigation. It might not be entirely clear to the plaintiff that they have a legitimate claim for damages in the first place, and even if the plaintiff does have a legitimate claim, they may have concerns about whether they will be successful in securing compensation (and whether it is worthwhile from a financial and emotional standpoint to commit themselves to the dispute).
It is important to understand that litigation does not have to be a hostile, tiring, long-winded affair. In fact, the majority of cases are settled before they ever advance to trial. One of our skilled Collier County personal injury lawyers will thoroughly examine your claims, investigate the facts, work with various experts, and put forth a persuasive argument on your behalf. The majority of cases are successfully resolved by way of negotiating a favorable settlement.

Contact Our Experienced Collier County Personal Injury Lawyers for Guidance
It is important not to delay the litigation process for too long. In Naples and the rest of Florida, personal injury claimants with negligence claims generally have four years from the date of injury to bring an action against the defendant (there are exceptions for medical malpractice, wrongful death, etc., which provide for a two year statute of limitations). Though this may seem like ample time to pursue litigation, contacting an attorney immediately is critical for collecting the evidence and guiding you through all medical and legal aspects of the case.
Once the statute of limitations has passed, the claims at issue are deemed abandoned. It is therefore important to secure the assistance of a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will evaluate your claims and file a lawsuit within the applicable timeframe, taking the steps necessary to preserve critical evidence that will support your arguments.
