Florida Gives Victims Four Years
to File a Personal Injury Claim


Statutes of limitations are laws that set strict deadlines for filing personal injury lawsuits. The majority of U.S. states have a personal injury statute of limitations of two years. Some out-of-state victims may wrongly believe this is the deadline here as well. In fact, Florida grants victims four years from the date of an accident to file their car accident claims if the injury occurred before March 24th, 2023. Accidents that occurred after March 24th, 2023 only have two years to file from the date of the injury. If your loved one was killed in an accident, you have two years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death claim.

Auto Accidents in Port Orange

Our community continues to endure serious injuries and deaths from car accidents. In 2022 alone, a number of significant crashes have occurred here:

January 12, 2022

A bicyclist suffered serious injury in a Port Orange car accident. Their harm was so severe they were transported to Halifax Medical Center-Daytona Beach and their car accident case was put under investigation by the traffic homicide unit. 

March 7, 2022

A motorcycle crash in the early afternoon in Port Orange killed a motorcyclist. The Port Orange Police Department Traffic Homicide Unit immediately put the tragic car accident under investigation. 

April 26, 2022

A two-vehicle car accident occurred in Port Orange just after midnight, killing one. Surviving victims of the incident were taken to Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach for medical treatment. 

Our personal injury lawyers have successfully handled a wide variety of car accident cases in Port Orange. We are prepared to help you collect the compensation you deserve.

The Most Dangerous
Intersection in the Area

Dunlawton Avenue intersection

A 2017 report by the River to Sea Transportation Planning Organization found that Port Orange is home to the single most dangerous intersection in Volusia and Flagler counties, located at SR 421 (Dunlawton Ave.) & SR 5A (South Nova Rd.). There were 145 recorded crashes at this location involving 271 vehicles between 2011 and 2015, totaling nearly a half-million dollars in property damage alone. When you consider that the third and fourth most dangerous intersections in the area are located right next to the Daytona International Speedway, it becomes clear that traffic influxes have a considerable impact on the community of Port Orange.

A Community with High-Risk Traffic

To the 64,000 who call Port Orange home, it is a peaceful but growing community with excellent schools and a wealth of parks, nature preserves, and attractions to enjoy. However, being the immediate neighbor to the south of the Most Famous Beach in the World and the Daytona International Speedway means that traffic can be extremely heavy. Millions of visitors flock to the area each year for Daytona Bike Week, spring break, and other recreation, making driving inherently more dangerous.

Florida Is a No-Fault Insurance State

Florida is a no-fault insurance state

Florida takes a "no-fault" stance on insurance when it comes to car accidents. Motorists are required to carry an insurance policy that provides a minimum of $10,000 in coverage for injuries and $10,000 in coverage for property damage resulting from a car crash. If your losses exceed these totals, or if your injuries are considered permanent, you have the right to file a car accident claim against the other driver.

Why You Need
A Car Accident Attorney

You can expect that the other driver will have an attorney of their own working to discredit your claim and prove that your losses were minimal. Don't take chances when your health and livelihood are on the line–enlist the help of a law firm known throughout Greater Daytona Beach for helping victims collect. Our car accident attorneys have secured many multimillion-dollar settlements and jury awards for victims like you thanks to compelling arguments, the testimony of crash experts, and a commitment to helping victims achieve the justice they deserve.

But Chanfrau & Chanfrau is large enough to serve you professionally and small enough to know you personally. Our three dedicated personal injury lawyers will give you the time and effort necessary to secure the best possible outcome in your case.

I have dealt with a number of attorneys in my 63 years but none with the dedication and attention to their clients needs like this firm. Beyond a sharp professional staff and concern over every detail, Bill Chanfrau went beyond the norm to make sure everything was done right and for my benefit. I do not write these reviews often, but this is the team you want in your corner.
