Port St. Lucie Auto Accident Attorney

Aggressive Representation in Stuart

The nation's roadways are becoming more crowded each day. With more traffic comes the increased risk of being involved in an auto accident that could seriously injure you or a loved one. When insurance does not provide full compensation for your losses, there is someone willing and able to fight for the money that you are rightfully owed. Based in Martin County, near Port St. Lucie and Jupiter on Florida's Treasure Coast, auto accident attorney David Golden and his staff can help you pursue compensation for losses and expenses resulting from someone else's negligence.

Car Accident Causes

A number of factors can contribute to auto accidents, and even the most seemingly minor fender-benders can have lasting consequences for victims. Regardless of whether the outcome is a minor fender-bender or a major injury crash, the repercussions can be costly.

Some contributors to auto accidents are:

  • Bad weather
  • Road hazards
  • Road rage
  • Driver distraction
  • Driver fatigue
  • Excessive speed
  • Drivers failing to observe the rules of the road
  • Age and/or inexperience of the driver
  • Mechanical defects

Types of Auto Accidents

Auto accidents can take the form of single-car collisions, such as when a car strikes a tree, building, or another structure. Often, the causes of single-vehicle collisions involve road hazards (such as potholes, construction barriers, or stalled vehicles) or faulty equipment (such as defective brakes, tires, or transmissions).

Multiple-vehicle accidents often involve head-on, rear-end, and/or side-impact collisions. Liability is frequently disputed by those involved. Though an individual's personal injury protection may provide the coverage needed to compensate victims of multiple-vehicle accidents, litigation in the event of serious or life-threatening injuries may be necessary to obtain the full and necessary compensation on behalf of victims.

Some of the deadliest auto accidents involve collisions with tractor-trailers, big rigs, or other large commercial trucks. These vehicles often weigh between 10,000 and 80,000 pounds fully loaded. Their size makes them difficult for drivers to control, particularly when having to make sudden stops. State and federal regulations are in place to ensure that drivers and their employers are held to a stringent standard of safety, but unfortunately, these laws are often overlooked or ignored. This kind of negligence is to blame for many truck accidents and the serious injuries and wrongful deaths they cause.

Auto Accident Compensation

Victims of auto accidents caused by the negligence of others are entitled to compensation for losses related to their injuries. In many cases, victims and their families may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Funeral costs

It often takes determined legal representation to obtain for victims and families the full amount to which they are entitled. At David Golden, P.A., in Martin County and serving Port St. Lucie and Jupiter, experienced auto accident attorney David Golden will fight to protect your rights and help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.
