"Exceeded my expectations." Another Satisfied Client

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Chanfrau & Chanfrau on my personal injury case and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. The entire team, from the receptionist to the lawyers, was professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. They made sure I understood every step of the process and were always available to answer any questions I had. The end result was a settlement that exceeded my expectations and I am grateful for their hard work and dedication." Austin Harrell

You Don't Pay Unless We Win Chanfrau & Chanfrau handles personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning you will only owe an attorney's fee if we obtain compensation for your case.

Large law firms that have significant overhead costs are often motivated to rush cases and accept lower settlements. Our personal injury firm in DeLand, Daytona Beach, and Palm Coast always sets out to attain the maximum value in compensation for each claim. We never devalue a case by under-settling or moving too quickly. 

Our team of three attorneys and seven paralegals and assistants like to say we are "large enough to serve you professionally and small enough to know you personally." To help bolster your case, our team will use our resources to retain investigators and experts to obtain evidence. 
Chanfrau & Chanfrau handles several types of personal injury cases to best suit the needs of our clients. We build cases that are trial-ready, even though less than 10% of our cases end up going before a judge and jury.

Compassionate Representation Allows You to Focus on What Is Important

At Chanfrau & Chanfrau, we know how difficult it can be to deal with the emotional fallout of a catastrophic event, let alone the process of civil litigation. We are both large enough to serve you professionally and small enough to know you personally. Our team of personal injury lawyers strives to provide compassionate legal counsel to all of our clients. We will take care of every aspect of your case so that you can dedicate all of your time and attention to recovering from your injury.

"The best of the best." Another 5-Star Review

"Kelly Chanfrau and her team are the best of the best. Kelly represented me for a gender discrimination case. She listened to the facts about my case and agreed to take it after i was turned away from a high profile law firm. She presents herself with professionalism. She listens with respect and the utmost sincerity to your case. She is classic and tough and she fought for me tooth and nail... I was ecstatic with the outcome of my case that settled for six figures." Lisa Moore

What Our Personal Injury Law Firm Can Do for You

If you are a victim of a car accident, motorcycle crash, or sustained any injuries involving a motor vehicle, our attorneys are interested in hearing your personal injury case.  

Some people may be hesitant to contact an attorney after they've been in a car accident. Insurance companies may promise to pay you for damages and compensation like medical bills, and deter you from seeking legal representation. However, if you've been hurt in a car accident or a vehicle crash, it is in your best interest to have someone who will fight for you in court. 

Having a team on your side that has experience with Florida's personal injury laws can make all the difference in your case. A winning verdict in your favor can result in compensation for wages lost, medical bills, vehicle damages, and more. Our team of attorneys may be able to secure compensation for loss of future wages if your injuries make it impossible to work or continue working in your professional field. 

As a tourist location for motorcyclists and race car enthusiasts, Volusia County experiences an influx in both foot traffic and road traffic throughout the year. If you were involved in a personal injury, contact our Daytona Beach, DeLand, or Palm Coast office today. 

"Absolutely wonderful." We Are Here to Support You

"My daughter was in a car accident that left her with some injuries and some PTSD. Bill and his entire staff have been absolutely wonderful with my daughter. Their kindness and compassion really make her feel cared for and listened to in a situation where she has felt pretty hopeless. Bill is so great at explaining everything to her and making her feel comfortable and cared for like she is part of his own family." Eileen Spaulding
