Hialeah Crime Accidents

Hialeah is a city in Miami Dade County, located north-west of downtown Miami and north of Miami International Airport. Other neighboring areas include Miami Lakes, Opa-Locka, Miami Springs, Westview, Hialeah Gardens, and Medley.

Hialeah was incorporated in September of 1925. It is the sixth-largest city in Florida with more than 235,000 residents Most are of Cuban-American origin. In fact, Hialeah is the city with the highest percentage of Cuban-Americans in the country with 73%. It's a city with a vibrant life, with many businesses and many entertainment possibilities. Its chosen nickname is “City of Progress”.

The crime rates in Hialeah are not as high as in neighboring cities, such as Opa-Locka, but Hialeah is hardly crime free. Our Hialeah crime victim advocates regularly receive calls from good and decent people who have been at the wrong place at the wrong time and ended up as crime victims. We serve Hialeah crime victims in these roles:

We advise and represent clients who have sustained personal injuries in any kind of criminal attack. We work to help them recover financially through one of the three possibilities allowed by the Florida legal system.

We often advise Hialeah crime victims about the procedure at the Florida Bureau for Victims Compensation to obtain some compensation for economic losses such as lost wages or medical bills. The procedure is regulated, and you will have the burden of providing the evidence that you have been injured in Florida. Once you have satisfied the requirements you will be eligible to recover some of your economic losses.

The next possibility is recovering by the criminal offender, but this is usually a waste of time. Criminals often don't get caught, criminal procedures take time, and even when they are convicted, they don't have money to pay. While it may seem to be the simplest path, it rarely produces any satisfactory results.

Finally, if the accident happened at premises that someone was obliged to keep free of foreseeable crime, then the premises owner or manager may be liable for the damages caused in the crime. Locations where a third party could be responsible for failing to provide a reasonably safe environment from foreseeable criminal actions may include retail stores, gas stations, banks, nightclubs, gentlemen’s club, or any other commercial establishment that invites customers.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
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

I hired Gerson & Schwartz, PA for a personal injury/slip and fall case. Phil Gerson, Nick Gerson, and Ed Schwartz were awesome! They were very professional, supportive, and informative through the whole process. I was amazed at how much time and effort they put into presenting my case.
