Helping Seriously Injured Accident Victims Across Collier CountyCollier County, Florida – Personal Injury Attorneys
Collier County, which includes the cities of Naples, Marco Island and Everglades City, has a population of 300,000. Named after Barron Collier, a well-known land owner, Collier County was formed in 1923, when it was annexed from Lee County. The majority of the land within Collier County is located within the protected confines of the Big Cypress National Preserve.
There are approximately 300 car accidents each year in Collier County, which unfortunately result in an annual average of 44 wrongful deaths. The majority of car accidents and truck accidents occur along the Interstate I-75 as it passes through Collier County before or after crossing the Florida Everglades. As the main east and westbound thoroughfare across Florida, I-75 has a continual flow of tractor trailers traveling at speeds in excess of 70 m.p.h. Other dangerous roadways in Collier County include State Road 29, Collier Boulevard and State Road 41. Seriously injured accident victims in Collier County usually receive emergency medical care at North Naples Hospital, Marco Healthcare Center or Baker Hospital in downtown Naples.
The personal injury cases arising from those car accidents, and every other type of accident in Collier County, are resolved within the courtrooms at the Collier County Courthouse, known as Florida’s 20th Judicial Circuit. The 20th Judicial Circuit also includes Lee County, Charlotte County, Glades County and Hendry County. Within Collier County, the courthouse is located at 3315 Tamiami Trail East, Naples. The Collier County Courthouse hears cases from distant cities including Immokalee, which is known for its large agriculture based economy which brings many seasonal workers to the Collier County area. The Seminole Tribe of Florida also has one of its reservations adjacent to Immokalee. While these communities are located over 30 miles from the county seat in Naples, those injured there must travel to Naples to seek justice.
