Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
According to a study by Smart Growth America, from 2016 to 2020, the Deltona–Daytona Beach–Ormond Beach area was the most deadly metropolitan area in the United States for pedestrians. According to the study above, the region had an annual pedestrian accident fatality rate of 4.25 per 100,000 population.
The study also found that Florida is the second most dangerous state for pedestrians overall.
Bicyclists face similar risks as pedestrians. Pedestrian and bicycle accidents carry heightened risks of traumatic brain injuries and fatal injuries.
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, an average of 194 bicycle crashes occur yearly in Volusia County, resulting in five fatalities and 176 injuries. An average of 304 pedestrians are hit by cars each year, resulting in 29 deaths and 206 injuries.
Pedestrians and bicyclists have a legal right to use the roadways, and motorists have a legal duty to watch for them. If you have been injured in a pedestrian or bicycle accident, our personal injury lawyers in Daytona Beach can help you find insurance coverage and identify all the liable parties to help you recover as much compensation as possible.
An accident that may only result in minor injuries when two or more passenger vehicles are involved can be deadly when a large commercial truck, such as a tractor-trailer, is involved. This is because trucks are significantly heavier and larger than cars and have a significantly longer stopping distance.
I-95 and I-4 are major trucking routes converging in Daytona Beach, and truck traffic is always increasing.
Big-truck accidents are more complex than car accidents because the trucking companies that own the truck or employ the truck driver may be liable, in addition to numerous other companies and individuals. Our Daytona Beach truck accident attorneys have successfully recovered compensation from the following parties after truck accidents:
- Trucking companies
- Truck drivers
- Negligent truck mechanics
- Tire manufacturers
- Truck manufacturers
- Companies responsible for loading and unloading
- Businesses with unsafe loading docks
Trucking companies are often large corporations that tend to fight injury claims. Our personal injury attorneys in Daytona Beach have a proven record of successfully fighting large companies, and we have the resources and skills to fight back and win.
On average, Volusia County sees an average of 489 motorcycle accidents per year. Motorcycle crashes are unfortunately common in Dayton Beach because our area is a popular motorcycle destination due to the mild weather and local attractions. It is also home to numerous annual biker events.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Daytona Beach have handled thousands of claims. In many cases, we have found that drivers could prevent most motorcycle accidents by consciously watching out for motorcycles. One of the common causes of a motorcycle collision with another vehicle is a left-turning driver failing to see a motorcycle that is going straight.
If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s carelessness, our wrongful death attorneys in Daytona Beach can help your family file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover the losses your family has suffered from their death.
If your family member started a personal injury claim but did not survive long enough for the case to resolve, our Daytona Beach personal injury attorneys may be able to help you continue the case. This is known as a survival claim. While a wrongful death claim is a means to recoup your family’s losses, a survival claim is meant to recover the losses your loved one suffered.
Premises Liability Claims
If you are injured on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable for your injuries. To prevail in a premises liability claim, you must prove that the owner of the property was negligent. This is what our Daytona Beach personal injury lawyers help with.

Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Florida
Personal injury damages in Florida are monetary compensation for financial and subjective losses. These damages are categorized as economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are verifiable monetary losses, including lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. Economic damages can be significant when an injury results in ongoing medical care and long-term disability. Anticipated future losses are included in your case value calculation. For example, if you are permanently unable to work, you could recover a lifetime of lost wages.
Non-economic damages are compensation for subjective losses related to how your injuries impact your quality of life. These damages are also known as pain and suffering.
If you have clear and convincing evidence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence by the person who injured you, you may be able to recover punitive damages. Such damages are awarded to punish the person who harmed you and deter future misconduct.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?
The personal injury statute of limitations in Florida is two years from the date of the injury or the date you discovered the injury. However, it is important not to wait to contact a personal injury attorney in Daytona Beach. While some exceptions exist, and your attorney will need early access to valuable evidence before it is lost or destroyed.
We will need to interview witnesses while they recall clearly what they saw or heard. Video or still camera footage may be available if we retrieve it promptly. However, it’s essential to work quickly as many types of video footage are only stored for a specific amount of time.
If your lawsuit is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, you forfeit your right to file a claim and recover the compensation you deserve.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Answers to questions we frequently receive are provided below.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Lawyer?
Hiring a Daytona Beach personal injury attorney at Farah & Farah requires no upfront cost. After we successfully recover compensation for you, we charge a percentage of your recovery, which is disclosed to you upfront. If we fail to get you compensation, you owe us nothing.
Is There a Limit on Damages in Florida Personal Injury Cases?
Florida has no cap on economic or non-economic damages, but state law does limit punitive damages to $500,000 or three times the total of your economic and non-economic damages, whichever is greater.
How Long Does It Take To Receive Compensation?
The time required to recover compensation depends on the insurance company’s cooperation, the complexity of your case, and the amount you seek. It could take a few weeks to several months. If your case goes to trial, it could take a year or longer.
We understand how important it is to recover compensation quickly when you have been injured. Thus, our attorneys will help you seek presettlement funding options so you can survive financially while waiting for your case to resolve.
What Do I Have To Prove in a Personal Injury Claim?
To prevail in any personal injury case, you must prove:
- The defendant owed a duty of care.
- The defendant breached the duty of care.
- The breach of duty is the actual and proximate cause of your injury.
- The breach of duty caused you to suffer an injury.
A duty of care may be breached when a driver fails to pay attention or violates traffic laws. Healthcare providers breach the duty of care when they fail to treat you according to established medical standards. A property owner violates a duty of care by failing to remove safety hazards.
