Everyone was super nice and friendly.  I was unsure what to do but the Chanfrau and Chanfrau Team were great.  They helped make sure the other driver’s insurance gave me a fair settlement.  I would recommend them to anyone and if I needed an attorney again I would definitely use their services

About Ormond Beach

Ormond Beach is located just north of Daytona Beach and Holly Hill. It encompasses 39 square-miles of coastal land and water; it borders the Halifax River and the Atlantic, making it a highly desirable area for residents and tourists. According to the United States Census Bureau, the population has steadily increased over the last few decades, and as of 2018, it reached more than 43,000 people.

Each year, Ormond Beach experiences an influx of visitors, particularly during high season, such as spring break. The Daytona 500, Daytona Beach Bike Week, and Ormond Beach Beer Festival are all big events that attract residents and tourists to the area. In addition, snowbirds often spend several weeks or months here during the winter to escape the colder temperatures up north.

Visitor Attractions in Ormond Beach

In addition to Ormond Beach's downtown area, there are a number of other attractions that draw residents and visitors to the city, including:

  • Tomoka State Park
  • Central Park
  • Addison Blockhouse Historic State Park
  • Ormond Beach Memorial Art Museum and Gardens
  • Andy Romano Beachfront Park
  • Bulow Creek State Park
  • The Casements

Are Car Accidents Becoming More Common?

According to the United States Census Bureau, Volusia County's population has increased to more than 553,000 people. In terms of population, it is the 11th largest county in the state of Florida. The county encompasses a large area of coastline, including Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach in the north, and Oak Hill in the south. It also extends east into Deltona.

If car accident statistics in Volusia County are any indication, motor vehicle accidents are increasingly common. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' Traffic Crash Facts Annual Report for 2018, from 2016 to 2018, the number of car crashes and injuries increased each year, while the number of fatalities decreased in 2018:

Category 2018 2017 2016 3-yr Avg.
Total Crashes 9,967 9,601 8,903 9,490
Total Fatalities 106 130 122 119
Total Injuries 6,657 6,527 5,872 6,352

A 2017 report by the River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization found that Ormond Beach ranked third for the highest number of motorcycle-related fatalities and injuries among Volusia and Flagler County cities with populations between 15,000 and 74,999 people, a list that included a total of 94 cities.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Left-turn Crashes

According to the River to Sea TPO report, left-turn crashes were the second most common type of crashes in Volusia County during the study period from 2011 to 2015. The report specifically identified the main thoroughfare into Ormond Beach, SR 40, as a stretch of roadway with a high rate of left-hand turn car crashes.

Ongoing Development

The city of Ormond Beach is committed to ongoing development, and has detailed expansion goals in its Strategic Economic Development Plan. Continued development of the municipal airport, downtown redevelopment, and promotion of area attractions can increase traffic and increase the risk of car accidents.

Distracted Driving

Distracted driving continues to be a common cause of car accidents across the nation. Talking on the phone, texting, adjusting navigation settings, changing music, talking to other passengers, grooming, and eating while driving are all types of distracted behavior that can increase the risk of car accidents.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving includes speeding, driving under the influence, drag racing, tailgating, driving without headlights, and aggressive driving. These dangerous types of driving behaviors put other drivers and passengers at greater risk of being involved in an auto accident and suffering personal injury.

Everyone I dealt with at the Daytona office was very pleasant and a joy to work with.  Bill Chanfrau number one concern was always focused on me getting better.   Him and the staff worked diligently on my case.  The settlement was very fair.  I would highly recommend Bill Chanfrau to my family and friends.
