Our Practice Areas

There are a wide variety of ways in which an injury can occur. No matter your situation, we can help you determine the best course of action to help you find financial support. You should not have to suffer the consequences of another individual’s negligence, and we want to be your advocate. Our Port St. Lucie personal injury attorney is highly qualified, compassionate, and dedicated to providing legal representation to Florida residents.

Cases he can represent include:

With our experience in the legal industry, specifically in litigating cases at the St. Lucie County Courthouse and other Florida courtrooms, we understand the law and what it takes to win justice for your case. We have helped countless clients secure the financial support that they need and are ready to fight for you. Our team understands that in order to win a personal injury case, negligence must be proven.

Negligence is defined by the following factors:

  • That the defendant held a duty to avoid causing harm
  • That the defendant acted in a manner that disregarded said duty
  • That the defendant’s actions directly or proximately caused your injuries

Proving negligence generally means proving liability. However, it is important to note that your own negligence can contribute to the amount of compensation you are eligible to receive. For example, if it is determined that your own actions contributed to 25% of the fault of the accident, you will only be eligible to receive 75% of the total damage value. This means that you need an attorney who can fight for the maximum compensation that you deserve.

Seek Justice for Car Accident Injuries

If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver in Port St. Lucie, our accident attorneys can help you determine liability and fight for the compensation you deserve. We will use expert analysis from auto accident reconstructionists and medical professionals to build your case. If your accident occurred along a common road like Port St. Lucie Boulevard in an area known to produce crashes, we may be able to take action against the city government for poor or dangerous road designs.

Accidents we can handle include:

  • Rear-end collisions
  • Head-on collisions
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Accidents involving pedestrians
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Multiple car accidents

Furthermore, we can also help victims of motorcycle, truck, and bicycle accidents to help them stand up to negligence. Whether you were involved in an accident on city streets, Florida’s Turnpike, Interstate 95, or U.S. 1, we can help you ensure that drivers are held accountable for their reckless actions and the consequences they have caused you.

Were you injured in a boating accident?

Port St. Lucie, Florida is well-known for its access and proximity to numerous bodies of water. Boating is one of the most common recreational activities among local residents, which leads to ample opportunity for danger. Operating a boat requires as much, if not more attention and focus as operating a vehicle. Unfortunately, many do not take serious action to ensure their own safety, much less the safety of those around them.

Accidents can happen in any of the following scenarios:

  • Recreational boating
  • Cruise ship excursions
  • River cruises
  • Navy vessel operation
  • Fishing

Due to a lack of knowledge about boat safety, inattentive operation, or operating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, boat accidents are all too common. If you were injured in an accident caused by another’s negligence while operating a boat, we can help you take necessary action to pursue justice. Furthermore, if the boat you were present on did not follow safety standards, the boat’s owner may be liable for any damages you suffered.

Let our St. Lucie firm help you take action!

The statute of limitations for personal injury in Florida is 4 years, however, it is still imperative to take immediate legal action following an accident. The closer to the accident that you begin building your case, the more accurate will be the facts and testimony that can support your claim. Over time, it is common for your own memory, the defendant’s memory, and the memory of any witnesses to conflate, which could severely impact your ability to pursue compensation.

Our team of Port St. Lucie injury lawyers are ready to guide you through the complex legal processes. Contact David Golden, P.A. today and schedule your complimentary case evaluation to get started!
