The motorcycle accident attorneys at The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A represent individuals who have been injured in accidents in Port St. Lucie and the surrounding areas. Because of the motorcycles’ small size and lack of protection, bikers are more likely than other accident victims to suffer from head, neck, and spine trauma, and paralysis. These injuries can be catastrophic and often require emergency medical treatment.

Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience handling motorcycle cases, and we will work diligently to make sure that you receive every bit of compensation that you are entitled to.

Motorcycle Accident Claims We Handle
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in 2015 there were 4,976 motorcyclists killed on U..S roadways, an eight percent increase in fatalities from the previous year. Further, the NHTSA estimates 88,000 motorcyclists were injured in accidents in 2015. Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Driver error
- Driver negligence
- Driver recklessness
- Poorly maintained roadways
- Manufacturing and design defects
Unfortunately, in these and other instances, motorcycle accidents can be caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness. If this is the case, the victim and their family may be able to recover compensation for the damages they suffered.
Negligence in Motorcycle Accident Cases in Florida
Florida follows what is known as a pure comparative fault rule in regards to negligence cases. This means that even if the victim was found to be partially at fault for the accident, they could still recover compensation for their injuries from the other parties involved in the accident. The victim’s total award for damages will be reduced by the percentage which they are found to be at fault, and the other parties will pay the remainder to the victim.
At The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A, we have been representing accident victims for over 25 years and have seen how traumatic a motorcycle accident can be for the victim and their family. Accidents can take a toll, physically, mentally, and financially.
