Beautiful Daytona Beach is an idyllic tourist destination nearly all year around, but it’s never more exhilarating and active than during the week leading up to The Great American Race: the Daytona 500. Between February 15 and February 23, 2014, thousands and thousands of racing fans will gather in Daytona to celebrate the thrill of the pedal hitting the metal. This year represents the 56th Daytona 500, and Budweiser is sponsoring a week’s worth of events that will cause the heart of every racing fanatic to pound just a little bit faster.
Unfortunately, accidents aren’t confined to the track during Daytona Speedweek. With the influx of tourists and racing enthusiasts into Daytona, car accidents become an even greater risk on our crowded roadways.

Auto Accidents during Daytona Speedweek
It is important to note that the vast majority of racing fans are truly excellent people who come to Daytona with the best of intentions. Some attendees, however, get carried away, whether due to excessive alcohol consumption, a combination of fatigue and excitement, or simply a heightened motivation to drive at unsafe speeds after watching professionals race throughout the day. These reckless drivers put other racing fans, as well as local residents, at increased risk of serious injury or, tragically, death due to their negligent actions.
If you or a member of your family is harmed in an auto accident during Daytona Speedweek, our personal injury attorneys can file a claim on your behalf. Using our expert accident investigation and reconstruction skills, we will gather compelling evidence and build a solid argument to present before the courts. In most cases, we are able to resolve claims before they proceed to trial, but we will only do so if it is in our clients’ best interests. When we feel that an acceptable conclusion can only be reached by pursuing a case to verdict, that is precisely what we will do.
Whatever the case, you can depend on the lawyers of Chanfrau & Chanfrau to provide you with the strongest representation possible.
