Local Hazards on Bunnell's Roadways
In recent years, serious auto accidents resulting in injury have occurred too frequently in Bunnell, FL. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department, Flagler County averaged 827 car accident-related injuries per year between 2016 and 2018. Considering the county's population of 115,081 in 2019, that is a significant percentage of those living in and around Bunnell. State Road 100 and U.S. Highway 1, in particular, have been the scene of catastrophic accidents.
As the county seat of Flagler County, Bunnell is a small town with two major roads running through it. U.S. Highway 1, or State Street, passes through the center of Bunnell. Florida State Road 100 connects the town with Flagler Beach to the east and Palatka to the northwest. Along these two stretches of roadway, residents have experienced several serious car accidents in recent years.
This roadway is known for its speeding motorists and serious car crashes. The speed at which vehicles travel can be dangerous, particularly at certain intersections where it is difficult to merge into the fast-moving traffic. In fact, five people were killed in such a car accident in February 2017. Their vehicle attempted to turn onto U.S. 1 from Old Dixie Highway at an intersection with a stop sign. Locals blame the intersection and the fact it features a stop sign, rather than a traffic light, for contributing to the high number of car accidents here. Besides potential problems with traffic engineering, speeding motorists along U.S. 1 become particularly dangerous when cell phone use or alcohol is involved.
State Road 100
In February 2018, two people lost their lives in a car accident involving three vehicles along State Road 100. The driver of a Chevrolet S-10 slowed down and the car behind it failed to stop, slamming into the pickup. The impact caused the truck to be pushed into the eastbound lane, where it was hit by a second car. The second impact caused the S-10 to spin, ejecting two passengers who died of their injuries. While no cause for the failure to stop was made public, collisions like these are often due to driver negligence. A moment’s inattention – whether to check a phone, change the radio, or turn to look at a passenger – is all the time needed to cause a fatal car accident.
"All the satff members worked diligently to help me with my case. They were very professional and kept me abreast of what was happening. Never having been involved with an injury lawsuit or any kind of lawsuit; I felt lost, but Bill Chanfrau Jr guided me through the process. In the end I received a very just settlement. I was very happy to find I had chosen a kind, understanding and ethical lawyer who fought long and hard for me." Barbara Melendez - 5 Star Google Review
Our Injury Lawyers Take Special Care to Build Your Case
To make a winning claim, we will identify the most relevant evidence to your case. This may include police reports and photographs taken at the scene. We will also use witness testimony and review medical records, which are particularly important in these cases since they connect the injuries to the car accident. Healthcare bills and records also serve as a major factor in calculating past and future losses, which serve to inform the amount you should be awarded in damages.
