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 2021, 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.

Our Law Firm Charges Nothing Unless We Win Book a Free Consultation At Our Personal Injury Law Firm

Our personal injury team understands just how debilitating a car crash can be. When clients come to us suffering physically, financially, and emotionally, we do everything in our power to alleviate their burdens and never add any additional ones. 

To this end, our practice does not charge a cent upfront for personal injury or wrongful death claims. We only get paid by taking a percentage of any verdict or settlement we obtain. This ensures our focus is on getting the most compensation possible, not running up hourly attorney's fees. 

Some larger forms are pressured to devalue and quickly undersettle their clients' cases to pay their significant overhead costs. As a boutique law firm, we do not have this issue. This allows our car accident team to always seek maximum value, never rushing or settling a case for less than what it's worth.

Our personal injury law firm has four decades of experience serving clients in Ormond Beach and the greater Daytona Beach area.

Our car accident lawyers have obtained settlements and jury awards totaling over half a billion.

Our family of personal injury attorneys takes pride in the fact that our practice is large enough to serve you professionally, but small enough for us to get to know you personally. Contact our personal injury law firm online or call us at:

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, even in that year where people traveled less, the number of crashes remained alarmingly high. 2021 and 2022 then saw even more crashes and injuries.

Category 2020 2021 2022 3-yr Avg.
Total Crashes 9,141 10,497 9,646 9,761
Total Fatalities 137 147 131 138
Total Injuries 6,271 7,416 6,852 6,846

Years Of Tragic Accidents

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.

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.

Your Lawyer Truly Matters

Ormond Beach

In March of 2023, Governor DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 837, Civil Remedies into law. This bill made many sweeping changes to Florida's legal system. One such change could make it more difficult for car accident plaintiffs to receive compensation unless they retain truly skilled attorneys. 

As a result of this bill, Florida's comparative negligence system has been changed so that a plaintiff cannot receive damages from a defendant if the plaintiff is determined to be primarily responsible for their accident. Our lawyers know how to persuade judges and jurors that our clients were not at fault, allowing for major compensation.
