About David C. Rash

Florida-Trusted for Over 20 Years

David C. Rash is a nationally recognized trial lawyer whose mission is to make our communities safer by holding accountable those individuals, healthcare providers, and corporations that chose to violate the safety rules. Mr. Rash represents victims catastrophically injured or killed by system failures caused by medical malpractice, mass torts, admiralty and maritime disasters, or other negligent actions. The bottom line is that the 7th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees everyone a right to a jury trial in civil cases, and Attorney Rash believes the only way to deter wrongdoers is for juries to enforce the safety rules and provide justice by way of a verdict for the victim. For more than two decades, Attorney Rash has been providing honest, aggressive and successful representation to those injured or killed by wrongdoers.
