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 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 seasons, 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. Meanwhile, snowbirds often spend several weeks or months here during the winter to escape the colder temperatures up north. This influx of visitors translates to growth and, unfortunately, greater risks on the road.

Car Accidents Are Becoming More Common In and Around Ormond Beach

Ormond Beach is in Volusia County, which the United States Census Bureau reports having a population of more than 553,000 people. In terms of population, it is the 11th largest county in the state of Florida. The county contains a large area of coastline, including Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach in the north, and Oak Hill in the south. It also extends west into Deltona.

Car accident statistics in Volusia County illustrate that motor vehicle accidents are common here. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles' Traffic Crash Facts Annual Report for 2020, the number of car crashes is alarmingly high, even though people traveled less during 2020. The total number of fatalities in car accidents is also rising:

Category 2020 2019 2018 3-yr Avg.
Total Crashes 9,141 10,133 9,967 9,747
Total Fatalities 137 126 106 123
Total Injuries 6,271 6,817 6,657 6,582

In 2019, there were nine fatal traffic accidents and seven pedestrian deaths in Ormond Beach. Meanwhile, 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.

Our attorneys encourage you to drive safely and defensively, but if circumstances out of your control (such as a negligent driver) cause you or your loved ones to suffer, we are here to protect your rights and help you achieve justice. We can assess your case during a free consultation.

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 will 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, pedestrians, and passengers at greater risk of being involved in an auto accident and suffering personal injury.

I am extremely grateful and thankful to Kelly and her team (Melanie and Dahiana) for all the work they did on my case. At my initial meeting with Kelly, I knew I was in good hands as she was very kind, understanding, and took the time to listen to my concerns without dismissing or rushing me. Her team was such a pleasure to work with throughout the course of my case; they kept me fully informed on the progress of my case.

Kelly and Laura get the best results while making it a pleasant experience! I recently settled my case for high six figures! Kelly and Laura also got my family 6 figures policy limits and also go her the limits on the uninsured motorist. I had a prior injury as well so don't believe nay sayers that you can't get anything if you have had a prior injury. Kelly and Laura are aggressive with the insurance company and they will get you the best results!

Building Your Car Accident Case

Evidence that the other driver was negligent or acting recklessly is paramount to the success of your case. When investigating your car accident, one of our attorneys will review evidence such as:

Witness Testimony

Credible third-party witnesses who watched the car accident occur may be able to relay critical information supporting your car accident claim.

Photos and Videos

Photos and video evidence collected on your smartphone or from traffic cameras are often indisputable evidence in car accident cases involving a personal injury lawsuit. They can help us determine exactly how a motor vehicle accident unfolded and who is at fault.

Medical Records

Medical records can help prove credibility when you have serious injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident. They can also help us determine how much compensation you need now as well as in the years to come.

Police Reports

A police report is an objective source because the responding officer shouldn't have had any bias toward one driver. Their account of the car accident can be instrumental in collecting compensation from the at-fault party.

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
