Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Bunnell Lawyers Handle
A picturesque town serving as the seat of Flagler County, Bunnell is a hidden treasure in northeast Florida. A balmy climate and a host of natural attractions and parks make the town a comfortable home for its thousands of lucky residents.
However, despite its lovely qualities, locals and visitors to Bunnell alike may become victims of virtually any type of accident. Some of the personal injuries our lawyers handle most often include:
Roadways in our community, particularly U.S. Route 1, are frequent sites of serious crashes. Car accidents, trucking accidents, and motorcycle accidents can occur due to speeding, inattention, or drivers who are under the influence. Although the Florida Highway Patrol has found the overall rate of accidents in Flagler County is declining, fatalities are, unfortunately, rising. Our personal injury lawyers regularly represent victims who suffered injuries in auto accidents.
Accidents on private properties are also a common cause of injury in central Florida. Premises liability may extend to dog bites, a child falling onto an uncushioned surface of a playground, or similar scenarios. Growth and development in the area also mean that accidents on construction sites are not uncommon. Our lawyers can help you bring legal action against negligent parties if you suffer an injury on private property, whether those parties are individuals or giant corporations.
Nursing Home Negligence
Elder abuse is disturbingly common in Florida assisted-living communities. If you have a loved one in a nursing home who is showing signs of abuse, such as bedsores, unexplained injuries, emotional withdrawal, or paranoia, our attorneys can help you investigate the matter and potentially bring legal action against the nursing home. Some Florida laws enforce a relatively short statute of limitations on these kinds of cases, so you should contact our law firm as soon as possible.
Negligent or irresponsible healthcare professionals have the potential to cause great harm to their patients. Malpractice cases that our attorneys have handled in the past have included birth injuries, injuries caused by defective equipment, cerebral palsy caused by malpractice during birth, failures to diagnose or misdiagnoses, and more. If you or one of your loved ones has suffered an injury because of medical malpractice in Bunnell or surrounding areas, schedule a free consultation with our personal injury lawyers today.
Tragically, the worst-case scenario can become true for some families. If you have lost a loved one because of a personal injury, our lawyers will provide tireless representation to ensure that you and your family receive every possible form of compensation. While no amount of money can replace your loved one, our compassionate attorneys will stand by your side every step of the way until some level of justice is reached.

The Clock Is Ticking.
The personal injury cases we handle often involve truly debilitating injuries. While it can be tempting to solely focus on your physical recovery, waiting to file a lawsuit can harm you. This is because statute of limitations laws set strict deadlines for when you must file by. Failing to meet your deadline means you likely forfeit the ability to receive compensation.
In Florida, clients now have just two years from the date of their incident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Similarly, you have only two years from the date of your loved one's passing to file a wrongful death claim. In rare situations, such as in a medical malpractice case where the malpractice was not immediately obvious, you may have four years to file.
Regardless of your specific deadline, it is wise to speak to our attorneys as soon as possible. This allows us to preserve evidence while it is still fresh and increases the speed with which you can recover necessary compensation.

Who We Fight
No matter what their marketing may say, insurance companies do not want to give you the full settlement your personal injury claim deserves. Our personal injury lawyers can communicate with both your insurance company and another party's insurance company so that you don't have to worry about them taking advantage of you.
Oftentimes, injuries are the fault of large corporations, whether because of an accident on company property, a dangerous product malfunction, or some other reason. Our attorneys are not afraid of any company, whether they're based in Florida or a global superpower. We will fight them aggressively until justice is served.
Often, individuals are liable for causing an injury, such as in an auto accident. When people realize they caused an injury, they may become unwilling to cooperate. Our personal injury lawyers have handled a countless number of these cases and know how to bring legal action against negligent parties.
Other Law Firms
Individuals, groups, or companies that may be responsible for causing an injury will often hire lawyers of their own. With close to 50 years in practice handling personal injury cases in Florida, the attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau are familiar with other firms in the area and are not afraid to take them on in court.
You're Not Helpless Follow These Tips & Strengthen Your Case
See a Doctor
Your number one priority should be your health. See a doctor even if you don't feel it's necessary. A doctor can identify problems you might not even be aware of–as well as future concerns–and generate medical records that are key resources for our attorneys.
Under no circumstance should you ever admit fault for your accident. This type of admission can only be used against you. The wisest move you can make is to stay silent about your case and let our attorneys do the talking for you. Most importantly, don't speak to insurance adjusters. We can handle all of the communication for you.
Any evidence you may have can be crucial. Our attorneys know how to identify useful evidence that clients may miss. Duplicate any photos, videos, or documents you have and make sure you bring the copies to our team.
