Financial Recovery Options for Crime Victims in Miami Lakes

There are three compensation recovery options for crime victims in Miami Lakes. You can go straight to the Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation and go through their administrative procedure. There are plenty of documents to gather to prove that you were injured in a criminal accident and you sustained certain personal injuries. But when you manage to do it, you may be able to obtain compensation for some of your non-economic losses such as medical expenses or lost earnings.

There is another option, but it can be the most frustrating. You can pursue a direct action against the criminal. But in the experience of our Miami Lakes crime victim attorneys, criminals are rarely in the position to pay for the damages they cause. In addition, depending on the crime, the victim dies not want to be involved in an adversarial proceeding against the criminal defendant who would have procedural rights such as taking your deposition. To complicate matters even further, the criminal will “take the fifth” against self-incrimination while the criminal charges are pending. For these reasons, our Miami Lakes crime victim lawyers usually advise our clients to seek another avenue for compensation.

The one option for compensation that might be available is to proceed against the person or corporation that was supposed to take all reasonable precautions to prevent a foreseeable crime. Examples of those who might have a duty to keep you safe include: shopping malls; nightclubs; retail store; apartment complexes; gas stations; convenience stores; strip shopping centers; or banks. If these commercial establishments have inadequate or negligent security plans and you or a loved one is injured as the result of a foreseeable and otherwise preventable crime, then the owners and/or operators may be liable for all of your damages.

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
