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.

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.Lehigh Acres Crime Victim Attorneys
