Truck Accident Lawyers Serving New Smyrna Beach
New Smyrna Beach, FL, is a beautiful tourist hotspot surrounded by major interstate highways.
Our proximity to I-95 and I-4 means many large trucks pass through our community, causing devastating truck accidents.
The Chanfrau & Chanfrau law firm stands up for truck accident victims and has proven our ability by winning millions for our clients.
Commercial Trucks Engage In Dangerous Work
Commercial trucks are used to complete important work. Unfortunately, much of this work is inherently dangerous and risky. On October 24, 2022, a tanker that was siphoning fuel at a Texaco gas station on S. Dixie Freeway in New Smyrna Beach became engulfed in flames. The blaze injured three individuals, two of whom were rushed to the hospital for medical treatment. Not all truck accidents involve passenger vehicles. If your harm was the byproduct of an incident similar to this, you should reach out to our law firm.
Our Roads Are a Known Issue
Our local government has acknowledged that high-risk roads in New Smyrna Beach must be addressed. For example, a portion of Orange Street was converted into a one-way because the road experienced such a high volume of car accidents. In the first 6 months of 2022 alone there were 10 different crashes on this one stretch of road.
It is the government's responsibility to maintain safe driving conditions. This includes fixing potholes, properly marking hazards, and providing proper drainage systems. If you believe that your truck accident was caused by the government's failure to protect you, the truck accident attorneys at our Daytona Beach law office or Palm Coast law office can hold local authorities responsible for your harm.

Truck crashes involving large trucks and commercial trucks often cause catastrophic harm to victims. We know that your suffering can include physical injury, skyrocketing medical bills, an inability to work, and more. Our law firm refuses to add any additional burden.
We provide free consultations for truck accident cases and represent our clients on a contingency basis. Our contingency arrangement means we do not get paid unless we win your case. This ensures our injury attorneys have no interest in running up hourly attorney's fees and that our number one priority is achieving the maximum compensation possible. Reach out to us to request your free consultation.
Our family of attorneys includes board-certified civil trial attorney W. M. Chanfrau, Sr., National Trial Lawyers Top 100 member William Chanfrau, Jr., and 2021 Best Lawyers in America honoree Kelly Chanfrau. They combine for nearly 100 years in practice handling truck accident cases, car accident cases, and other personal injury claims.
We keep our team large enough to serve our clients professionally but small enough to know them personally. Many bigger law firms struggle with significant overhead costs, financially pressuring them to rush to settle cases. Keeping our team small means we avoid this risk, allowing us to seek maximum compensation while never under-settling.
We Achieve Major Verdicts and Settlements
Our client sustained major injuries during a trucking accident that required several jaw and spinal surgeries. The $750,000 we recovered for him was his policy limit.
A truck illegally backed onto an unlit highway, causing our client to suffer major closed head injuries. We were very proud to achieve a six-figure settlement in this case.
A grieving family came to us after their loved one passed away in an under-ride truck accident. The million-and-a-half dollars we obtained helped the family move forward.
Act Now, Before Your Deadline Passes
Statute of limitations laws set strict deadlines for when lawsuits must be filed by. Allowing your statute of limitations to pass likely means you forever lose the right to pursue compensation for your truck accident. Most states have a deadline of just two years from the date of incident for personal injury claims.
Florida gives victims a full four years from the date of injury to file a personal injury lawsuit if the injury occurred before March 24th, 2023. Injuries after March 24th, 2023 have a 2-year window to file a lawsuit.
This is often great news for out-of-state victims who worry their time to receive financial justice may have passed. If your loved one was tragically lost in a truck accident, you have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side
Following a harmful crash, it can be tempting to accept a quick settlement from the truck driver's insurance company. This is very rarely in your best interest.
It is the insurance company's job to minimize their losses, not to offer adequate compensation. Even speaking to them is unwise, since insurance representatives often try to obtain out-of-context statements that can be used against crash victims. If you are contacted by the insurance company, direct all communication to our New Smyrna Beach truck accident lawyers. We know how to protect you and keep your best interests at heart.
Clients Rely on Our Daytona Beach Law Firm
Following an auto accident in which I was the victim of a red-light runner I initially contacted a lawyer in the city where I work; however, following the recommendation of my daughter-in-law, I decided to have Chanfreau & Chanfreau represent me. This was my first experience dealing with anything of this nature and can attest this is a top-notch firm.View on Google
