Representing Car Accident Victims in DeLand
Car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries and deaths in the United States. In Volusia County alone, there were 25,418 accident injuries and 448 fatal crashes reported between 2011 and 2015. In that same time frame, there have been 170 accidents resulting in three fatalities where I-4 meets State Route 44, just east of DeLand.
Although the city has taken measures to reduce the possibility of crashes through the construction of roundabouts, that risk will always exist due to human error and other unpredictable circumstances. The proximity of many highways to DeLand, including state routes 17 and 92, contributes to that risk.
As a result, there is a need for personal injury lawyers to represent victims of car accidents in DeLand and throughout Volusia County. The legal team at Chanfrau & Chanfrau offers thorough and aggressive representation to victims of these accidents so that they get the compensation they need to recover from their injuries. From expert testimony to accident reconstruction, we are willing to go the extra mile to protect your rights.
Personal Injury Lawyers Who Understand Motorcycle Accidents
Daytona Beach is home to both Bike Week and Biketoberfest, and Flagler and Volusia Counties have a very high rate of motorcycle accidents. Although 25 miles from Daytona Beach, DeLand still has a relatively large number of crashes involving motorcycles.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists are far less protected than drivers of passenger vehicles or trucks. Consequently, crashes involving motorcycles are often much more severe than those involving cars alone. If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident while driving or riding motorcycles, you are likely facing not only the exhausting process of physical recovery, but considerable medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses, as well.
The personal injury lawyers at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can help you pursue a lawsuit and win financial compensation to pay these expenses. You deserve to recover from injuries or from the loss of a loved one without the weight of unpaid bills hanging over you. Speak with one of our lawyers during a free initial consultation to find out the best course of action for your case. Although stigmas against motorcyclists exist, you can trust us to approach your case with an open mind and pursue any and all restitution to which you are entitled.
Protecting Construction Workers' Rights
With a number of significant groundbreakings during the last year, there is a considerable amount of construction going on in DeLand. While a positive development, this increase in construction may also lead to a parallel increase in accidents for workers.
Because of the hazardous environment and materials, many severe injuries and fatalities occur at construction sites. While some are unpredictable, negligence on anyone's part can create unsafe conditions and make injuries all too common. Slips, falls, cramped working conditions, long-term exposure to dangerous materials, falling equipment, and being struck by a vehicle can leave you unable to work.
If you have been injured at a construction site and you suspect that your employer, an equipment manufacturer, or the owner of the site contributed to the dangerous conditions, you can hold them financially responsible with a personal injury lawsuit. The personal injury attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can sit down with you to talk about your case and help you determine the best course of action.

"Someone in our family has been involved in the courthouse since 1936. We are proud of the fact that our family has such deep roots in the community...and we will continue to be here [for our clients] in the future." - W.M. (Bill) Chanfrau, Sr.
How Can a Lawyer Help You?
Recognizing When You Need Help
If you have been wounded and another entity is legally responsible, you may have grounds for a personal injury case. Personal injury encompasses a wide range of scenarios, including but not limited to auto accidents, construction accidents, nursing home neglect, and medical malpractice. Each case is governed by a unique set of rules and regulations, which make legal processes complex. In order to secure restitution, personal injury lawyers have to prove that another party's actions directly contributed to your physical damage. Our firm has the resources necessary to gather all relevant evidence and build a compelling case that proves exactly who is responsible for your losses.
Our personal injury attorneys can examine all pertinent documentation, including police reports and medical records, as well as talk to eyewitnesses. We can also reconstruct the scene of the accident and bring in expert testimony to bolster your claims. It is our goal to help you secure compensation for medical bills, ongoing care, home modifications, property damage, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, emotional distress, loss of companionship, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
While we make every effort to settle without going to court, our seasoned trial lawyers can advocate for you aggressively if your case goes to trial. Chanfrau & Chanfrau's personal injury team has earned the goodwill and respect of clients across Florida for over four decades. Our verdicts and settlements reflect our personal injury firm's mission to offer the best possible service to each client.
Protecting Your Interests
After an accident, the defendant's insurance company may attempt to settle the matter with you prior to consulting counsel. However, claims adjusters often try to minimize the extent of your damages to reduce their liability. An attorney who is well-versed in the nuances of personal injury law can protect your best interests and compile the evidence needed to demonstrate the full extent of your losses. In some cases, multiple parties may be responsible for your injuries. Our team is ready to pursue any and all negligent parties to ensure justice is served. We can determine if you have a case during a free consultation in which our attorneys will review the facts surrounding your accident.
