He has a passion for what he does and it truly shows. He sincerely just wants to help get the best results possible for his clients and would not accept anything less!... View On Google +

Car Accidents

Dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be frustrating enough without insurance companies trying to lowball settlements. Although an insurance claim is intended to cover the cost of car repairs and medical expenses, insurance companies may not offer a fair settlement. In fact, in certain cases, a lawsuit is the only way to guarantee that you receive the compensation you are owed. We offer aggressive representation to make sure you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries. 

Our personal injury lawyers in Daytona Beach have represented clients involved in all types of accidents, from rear-end and head-on collisions to side-impact accidents, tire blowouts, and rollovers. Furthermore, we have worked with clients whose accidents were caused by a huge range of factors, including speeding, negligence and inattentiveness, use of controlled substances, failure to yield, failure to signal, texting or using cell phones, road rage, tailgating, rubbernecking, driver fatigue, night driving, teenage drivers, poor car maintenance, and inclement weather. As a result, we are deeply familiar with the ins and outs of car accident lawsuits. Our personal injury lawyers will work tirelessly to stand up to your insurance company and recover the full gamut of damages you deserve, including the cost of medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation, pain and suffering, and, if necessary, funeral and burial services. 

Practice Areas

Chanfrau & Chanfrau handles several types of personal injury cases. Specific examples include motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, dog bites, product liability, medical malpractice, child abuse, and more. Less than 10% of their cases end up going to trial.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are disproportionately affected by accidents on the road. In 2016, nearly six times as many motorcyclists were killed as drivers of passenger cars. The causes range from dangerous conditions and lane splitting to inattentive drivers and drunk drivers. Unfortunately, many motorcyclists also find themselves the targets of road rage, which significantly increases their risk on the road.

As a hotspot for motorcyclists, Florida can sometimes magnify this risk. During events like Daytona Bike Week and Biketoberfest® in Daytona Beach, the danger of an accident in the area increases substantially.

At our law firm, our personal injury lawyers will fight to make sure that those responsible for your or your loved one's injuries are held accountable. We can investigate the case, negotiate on your behalf, and represent you in court to ensure you receive the compensation you need to recover. Our personal injury lawyers strive to secure a better future for those whose lives have been changed by a motor vehicle accident.

If you are considering filing a lawsuit against the party responsible for your or your loved one's motorcycle accident, it is important to be aware of time restrictions. In Florida, the statute of limitations only allows you to file a claim within the first four years after an accident. If the victim was killed, then that window shrinks to two years.

Our attorneys stand up to insurance companies and strive to secure a better future for victims and their families facing the life-changing consequences of an accident.

Truck Accidents

Even though commercial truck drivers are held to a higher level of responsibility than other drivers, many accidents still occur. In 2017 alone, over 4,000 people in the U.S. were killed as the result of a collision with a truck. Because of their size, weight, and reduced maneuverability, trucks can be especially dangerous when driven or used improperly. Unfortunately, passenger vehicles are at much greater risk during impact: in a truck accident, occupants of cars account for 97 percent of the fatalities.

Some of the most common causes of truck accidents include inadequate training, lack of maintenance, fatigue, improper loading, drunk driving, and even simply inattentive driving. Any one of these factors can lead to head-on accidents, side-impacts, rollovers, jackknifes, and rear-end or under-ride collisions

In cases like these, it seems obvious that the fault should lie with the truck driver or their employers. However, insurance companies may not always come to the same conclusion. With the help of a personal injury attorney, you can hold drivers and their employers responsible for the harm they have inflicted upon you or a loved one.

It is important to keep in mind, though, that Florida is a no-fault state. As a result, unless there is a permanent injury or a wrongful death, there is a limit to how much insurance will pay. Insurance may only have to pay up to 80 percent of medical damages and 60 percent of lost wages. Consequently, having a personal injury lawyer on your side can make a world of difference and ensure you receive as much compensation as possible.

Our family has been involved in personal injury and other legal cases in Volusia County since 1936. W.M Chanfrau, Sr., established his legal practice in 1976 and his son joined him in 2003. Our dedication to the legal process is part of a long family tradition and we are proud to keep it alive.

Free Consultations & Convenient Services

Chanfrau & Chanfrau understands that simply coping with the aftermath of a traumatic accident can be difficult, let alone finding time to visit a lawyer. If you have been severely injured, traveling to an office may not even be a possibility. We are happy to meet with you at your place of work, at home, or even in your hospital room. 

This initial consultation is completely free. Our personal injury lawyers are available to provide legal counsel at any time, day or night

The Chanfrau & Chanfrau Difference

With three attorneys and seven paralegals and legal assistants, we like to say we are "large enough to serve you professionally and small enough to know you personally." You and your family are important to us, and we understand the complex emotions that accompany a catastrophic event and civil litigation.

Our family of lawyers and legal staff extend compassion and expertise to all our clients, as we work to recover damages for the pain and loss they have endured.

Our firm is trusted, knowledgeable, and well-established, with the resources to retain investigators and experts to obtain evidence and bolster your case. At the same time, each client always receives personal service and attention from the attorney handling the case, as well as the members of our top-notch support staff.

outside view of the office

Large law firms with significant overhead costs are often motivated to rush cases and accept lower settlements. Our goal is always to attain the maximum value for each claim. We never devalue a case by under-settling or moving too quickly. Our firm puts time and attention to detail into each case–efforts that pay off in better results for our clients. And, Chanfrau & Chanfrau works on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases, meaning you will only owe an attorney's fee if we obtain compensation for damages in your case.

Communities We Serve

Our law firm is proud to serve many communities, from our home base in Daytona Beach of Volusia County to our neighbors in the north in Flagler County. This includes Beverly Beach, Bunnel, Flagler Beach, Marineland, and Palm Coast. We also provide representation for those in the unincorporated communities of Andalusia, Bimini, Black Point, Bon Terra, Codys Corner, Deanville, Dupont, Espanola, Favoretta, Korona, Myrtle Island, Neoga, Painters Hill, Relay, Roy, St. John's Park, and Shell Bluff.
