I had a very difficult car accident case that took four years to settle. Bill and Greg were there every step of the way giving me updates and keeping me informed on the progress of my case. I know they spent countless hours reviewing the accident, contacting witnesses, and investigating the claim. Being in any kind of legal situation is a scary thing, but I always felt comfortable knowing that Chanfrau and Chanfrau had my back.View on Google

Florida Gives Victims 2 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. However, this rule is new to Florida. Our state grants victims four years from the date of an accident to file their car accident claims if the injury occurred before March 24, 2023. Accidents that occurred after March 24, 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.

September 29, 2023
A motorcycle and an SUV were involved in a crash on Nova Road, one of Port Orange's most dangerous roads. The motorcyclist died at the scene of the crash.
The Most Dangerous
Intersections in the Area
Nova Road has some of the most dangerous intersections in Volusia and Flagler counties. Many accidents occur along this road, including accidents with fatalities.
In September 2019, a 22-year-old man lost his life when a vehicle broadsided his motorcycle at the intersection of Nova Road and Miles Drive. His family, as well as others in the community who recognize the intersection as dangerous, pushed to make the intersection safer, going as far as to raise their concerns at a Port Orange council meeting. Because Nova Road is a state road, changes cannot occur without the state's involvement. The family of the 22-year-old man lobbied the city and the Florida Department of Transportation, and an FDOT study determined a need to reduce the number of areas at the intersection where vehicles cross paths. They decided to move forward with plans to make the intersection safer, including implementing a right-turn-only lane.
However, the Dunlawton Ave. intersection, Isabelle Ave. intersection, and other areas along Nova Road still need work. When you consider that these intersections 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 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.
