Roads to Financial Recovery for Crime Victims in Broward County

You, as a crime victim or a survivor due to wrongful death of a close person, may have the right to be compensated for your harms and losses. The Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation offers a road to recovery for some of your losses provided your case meets the requirements set by Florida laws. We can help you determine if you qualify and advise you how to gather all the paperwork necessary for the procedure.

Aside from victim compensation from the state, you may also consider claiming damages from the person or persons who have committed the criminal attack. However, don't expect to get money from them. Most often they don't have the money, even when they are caught and convicted.

There is one more option that involves a third party when the criminal attack takes place at commercial property. If you were attacked or injured as the result of a criminal action or negligent security in a bar, nightclub, gas station, convenience store or a strip shopping mall in Broward County, then you may be able to make a claim against the owner or company in charge. When negligent or inadequate security results in injury or death in Broward County, a full investigation is required to determine if the potential defendants took all the reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable crime at their premises. If they failed, they may be liable to pay complete and fair compensation.

Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
