Lehigh Acres Crime Accidents

Lehigh Acres is the largest suburb of Fort Myers. It has 100,000 residents, which is more than the city itself. Other suburbs in the area, such as Buckingham, Olga, Gateway, Alva, Estero and Bonita Springs are significantly smaller. Cape Coral and Fort Myers are of comparable size. Lehigh Acres was particularly hard hit by the real estate market crash in 2008 and it is still struggling to recover.

Compensation for Crime Victims in Lehigh Acres

When people call us for advice on how to get compensated after a crime attack in Lehigh Acres, we listen carefully to their story. There are three roads to recovery in Florida, so there are some facts that need to be determined before choosing one of them. The best one to take depends on the specific circumstances of your case.

However, we don't advise taking on the criminal offender, even though inexperienced do-it-yourselfers choose to go that way. Criminals procedures take a long time to conclude, and even then, offenders don't pay. They simply don't have money to pay large sums for compensation.

That’s why we always try to determine if a person is liable under the Florida premises liability and negligence laws. Under these laws, an owner or operator of a commercial establishment, such as bar, nightclub, retail store, affordable housing complex, banks, convenience stores, gas stations or strip shopping centers owe visitors a duty of reasonable care. That means they must take all the necessary and reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable crimes. However, when they ignore the facts and fail to meet their obligation though inadequate or negligent security, that may constitute a breach of that duty. In that case the operator or owner may be liable for your injuries and damages as the criminal action.

The last option is provided by the government. The Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation compensates Florida crime victims who can prove that they have been injured in a crime attack on Florida soil. This road involves plenty of paperwork, so take your time to avoid missing something and losing valuable time. Remember that there is a deadline for applying for compensation.

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
