I could tell from the first appointment that I could trust Bill Chanfrau Jr., Amanda Brown and the Chanfrau team. Being a Vietnam Vet, that does not come easy. As time went on I could see that this law firm represented honesty, integrity and professionalism. The team was diligent and courteous and treated me like family. At the end Bill Chanfrau Jr. kept all his promises to me and they exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Chanfrau & Chanfrau Law Firm to anyone.View on Google

The Right Lawyer Matters
For decades, our state operated under the legal framework known as pure comparative negligence. In March of 2023, Governor Ron DeSantis signed House Bill (HB) 837, Civil Remedies into law, changing our state to the usage of modified comparative negligence.
This change means that if a Florida car accident victim is determined by the courts to be primarily at fault for their crash, they cannot receive any compensation whatsoever. Furthermore, the amount of compensation awarded is in direct proportion to what percentage the victim is found to be responsible for their accident.
This law makes it imperative to hire proven lawyers – like our team that has won over $100 million for victims – since you may recover nothing in your lawsuit if your legal team fails to prove that you were not the most to blame for your wreck.
Don't Delay. There Are Strict Deadlines
A personal injury lawsuit is the type of claim filed by the injured victim of a car accident that was caused by someone else's negligence. In Florida, you have just two years from the date of your crash to file a personal injury claim.
A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by the surviving family members of an individual who was killed in a car crash by a negligent driver or third party. In our state, you have only two years from the date of your loved one's passing to file a wrongful death suit.
