Florida Laws

The operation of any motorized vehicle poses a potential danger to people and property. Florida state law recognizes the need to impose liability upon the owner of a car, motorcycle, golf cart, or other vehicle, when the actions of the driver cause harm to another. Florida's no-fault insurance laws make it mandatory for drivers to carry personal injury protection (PIP) to cover their own medical bills, and an uninsured motorist is subject to penalties. In addition, careless drivers who cause an accident can still be held liable. Damages and other financial compensation can be recovered for serious injuries or death caused by another party's negligence or recklessness.

Car Accidents

Florida residents spend a great deal of time navigating the freeways to commute to work or pursue leisure activities. Over the years, an occasional fender bender is almost inevitable, but if a serious car accident occurs, life-altering losses can be the unfortunate result. Our state's no-fault insurance laws do not rule out just compensation for devastating losses. In the case of serious injury or death, the victim and their family are entitled to compensation for the negligent or reckless actions of another driver.

Trucking Accidents

When a car is involved in a collision with a commercial tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler truck, devastating consequences can occur. Because of the inherent danger caused by the size of these trucks, the state and federal government strictly regulate their operation. Drivers and trucking companies must follow these rules or they risk being held liable for negligence - especially in the case of an accident. If your family has been impacted by a truck accident, it is important to contact the experts at Chanfrau & Chanfrau before talking to any insurance representatives. We perform the necessary investigations to determine liability, and unlike the insurance companies, we advocate for you.

Bicycle Accidents

Statistics report as many as 42,000 Americans are injured each year riding a bicycle, and 30% are under the age of 14. Despite the prevalence of bike paths in Florida, distracted automobile drivers frequently fail to see a bicycle rider on the side of the road. A bicyclist's exposure makes him or her particularly vulnerable to serious injury, or even death. In the event of a collision, a car or truck driver's oversight often constitutes negligence, and a bike rider who is harmed by carelessness deserves compensation. Our law firm has years of experience handling personal injury cases stemming from bicycle accidents, and offers a free consultation and case review.

Each year, thousands of pedestrians are struck by motor vehicles and killed or injured. The majority of these victims are children or the elderly, people who are less visible or not as quick and agile as others. The fact is, pedestrians do have the right of way, and a driver of a car, truck, motorcycle, or taxi is expected to make reasonable efforts to ensure the safety of people walking along a street or in a parking lot. If you or a family member has been a victim of a pedestrian accident, do not hesitate to pursue the compensation that is rightfully yours. Our experienced personal injury attorneys are here to help.
