Our Community Endures Many Car Accidents
Ormond Beach, FL, and Volusia County as a whole suffer from many damaging auto wrecks.
Over the first 11 months of 2022, Volusia County suffered 8,600 total crashes. These resulted in 6,163 injuries and 100 fatalities.
Ormond Beach Is Especially Dangerous
The Ormond Beach and Daytona Beach areas are booming. While this is great news for business, it can mean terrible things for our roads. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects that traffic on US-1 will more than double by 2050 and will increase by over 40% on I-95. This means more commercial trucks will pass through our community, increasing the potential for truck accidents and endangering passenger vehicles.
The Destination Daytona area is already infamous for major crashes on US-1 at I-95. Additionally, tight loop ramps and bridges on these highways fail to meet FDOT standards. On top of our highway issues, a study published in 2022 found the Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach metro area to be the deadliest in the nation for pedestrians. Experts believe that improved road designs could prevent many of these deaths.
We Can Hold the Government Accountable
The Ormond Beach City Commission is actively involved in projects designed to improve road safety. It is the government's responsibility to maintain safe roadways. If your truck accident was fully or partially caused by governmental failure, we can hold the municipality accountable.

There Is a Strict Deadline But You May Have More Time Than You Think
Statute of limitations laws create hard deadlines for when certain types of lawsuits must be filed by. These deadlines vary state-to-state. Failing to file your personal injury lawsuit within the time limit likely bars you from ever collecting the compensation you deserve.
For personal injury lawsuits, Florida allows victims a full four years from the date of their harm to file a claim if the injury happened before March 24th, 2023.
This is significantly longer than what most states provide. If a truck accident tragically claimed the life of a loved one, you have just two years from the date of their death to file a wrongful death claim. Any injury that occurred after March 24th, 2023, has two years to file.

Florida Does Not Limit Your Compensation
Unlike some states, Florida has no limit on economic or non-economic damages in a personal injury case. While rare, punitive damages may also be awarded if your truck accident was caused by egregiously reckless behavior.
It can be tempting to accept a quick settlement from the responsible truck driver's insurance company. This type of offer is typically a lowball settlement that does not fully cover your harm. It is highly recommended that you speak to our attorneys so we can seek the most compensation possible on your behalf.
