Orange City: an Evolving Community
Located in southwest Volusia County, Orange City has largely served as a bedroom community for both Orlando and Daytona Beach. Recently, a number of large scale construction projects aimed at the city's economic development have been moved forward in an effort to turn the area into a hub for commerce. With all of this construction and expansion, a personal injury case can happen anywhere and at any time.
If you have been injured in an accident in Orange City, a dedicated personal injury attorney can make all the difference in your case. Our law firm has successfully brought litigation against insurance companies for over 40 years and will fight vigorously on your behalf.
A growing number of construction projects continue to contribute to the growth of the city and its neighboring communities. Construction projects immediately east of the Interstate 4 and State Road 472 interchange in neighboring Deltona include plans for retail shops, commercial buildings, residential areas, and medical offices. With its prime location along I-4, Orange City serves as a gateway to Volusia County from the Orlando area. It was only a matter of time before developers discovered the opportunities available in Orange City and the adjacent areas such as DeBary, DeLand, and Deltona.
While the continued growth of the area will certainly benefit the communities of Volusia County, it will unfortunately also bring higher instances of vehicle accidents of all kinds. These projects aimed at bettering the community will lead to an increase in not only the population of the area, but the amount of people commuting to and through the Orange City area. With this increase in population, the area will also see a substantial increase in traffic. More traffic will inevitably lead to an increase in incidents and accidents, including motorcycle and car accidents, and resulting injuries, property damage, and other effects.
Fortunately, the esteemed personal injury lawyers at the trusted law firm of Chanfrau & Chanfrau are conveniently located within 30 miles of Orange City at their Daytona Beach office. Our family-run law firm has provided clients with dedicated service for over 40 years. If you were injured due to the negligence of another party, our personal injury attorneys are here to help you reach the settlement you deserve.
Experience the Chanfrau Difference
Determining If You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
No two personal injury cases are alike. The range of cases that classify as personal injury vary from auto accidents, slip and fall, and defective product injuries, to mistakes made by a doctor. This broad umbrella of cases means you may qualify for a personal injury case, but it is important to determine if you need to hire a lawyer to assist you in the process.
Will the Insurance Company Cover Your Damages?
If you are injured and believe someone else might be legally responsible, you may want to find out if that person has insurance coverage that will cover any personal injury claim you make. If you are hurt in a car accident or while riding a motorcycle, does the other driver have insurance? If you injure yourself in a slip and fall, who is the property owner and do they have liability coverage? Our attorneys can answer these questions for you so that you can focus on your recovery.
How Severe Are the Effects and Your Condition?
With the rare exception of a simple case involving minor injuries where you believe you can get a satisfactory result on your own, it is in your best interests to discuss your case with a personal injury lawyer. This is especially true because injuries can develop over time, worsening when you thought they had resolved and moved forward. When you choose Chanfrau & Chanfrau, your attorney will gladly discuss the details of your case and explain the legal options that are available to you.

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Dramatically Improve Your Situation
An accident can have lasting consequences, resulting in countless medical bills, and insurmountable pain and suffering.
Our injury lawyers know that no amount of compensation can help you overcome the trauma of an accident or the loss of a loved one. But fair, full compensation to cover medical expenses and other costs related to the incident can help you focus on your recovery. We've helped many victims in Orange City and throughout Florida get the compensation they deserve. Our notable settlements include:

The Timeline for Personal Injury Litigation
When it is determined that you have a viable personal injury claim, your lawyer will provide you the framework involved in building your specific case. With over four decades practicing law as personal injury attorneys, the team at our law firm can give you an estimate as to the length of your case. Depending on any number of factors along the way, the timeline of your case may change in order to reach a satisfactory result.
Your lawyer will guide you through the process, but it is important to know the steps required to build a successful case in order to reach a beneficial settlement.
If you have been injured in an accident, you need to get medical treatment. When it comes to a personal injury case, going to the hospital or a doctor is about more than just your health. Your recovery is paramount, but so is documenting your injuries and all associated medical procedures performed. If you don't seek medical help, an insurance adjuster and a jury will presume that your injury is not genuine.
Your attorney will interview you about the accident, your background, the condition of your injury, and the medical treatment you are receiving. Leave nothing out, as it is important that your personal injury lawyer knows everything that you know about the accident, your injury, and your medical treatment. After the interview, your lawyer will review all of your medical records and bills related to your injury. At this point, your personal injury lawyer will have a good idea as to the strength of your case.
Depending on the extent of your injuries and the treatment needed, we may attempt to settle your case outside of court. To do so, we will reach out to the attorney of the defendant or defendant's insurance company. Regardless of whether your claim is related to a minor injury or a permanent injury or impairment, we will fight for you throughout the process to get you the most beneficial outcome available.
The process where each party investigates their adversary's legal claims and defenses is called the discovery process. This can take anywhere from several months to a year to complete, and the duration depends on court deadlines and case complexity.
Mediation and Negotiation
At the end of the discovery period, the lawyers from each side may begin talking about reaching a settlement. Sometimes your attorney can reach an agreement via discussions, but oftentimes, a case is settled in mediation. In mediation, both clients and both lawyers join a mediator in an attempt to settle the case without a trial. If unsuccessful, the case will proceed to trial.
In the case of an unsuccessful mediation, we will vigorously fight for you in court. The timetable for a personal injury trial relies on a number of factors, and can last as little as a day or extend longer than a week. Delays such as rescheduled dates can extend the period of a trial significantly, but we will be here to support you at every step of the process through to the final judgment.
