At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., our lawyers are proud to offer representation to crime victims in Miami Springs. The city is located in Miami-Dade County and has a population of more than 14,300 people. The community was founded by Glenn Hammond Curtiss, who was known as the Father of Naval Aviation. He founded Miami Springs, originally known as Country Club estates, in 1920s when many of the first planned communities were just getting off the ground. The community was later incorporated in August 1926 and eventually had its name changed to reflect a local water source.
Since the beginning, Miami Springs has been closely linked to the aviation industry, particularly because of its close proximity to Miami International Airport. When some major airlines went bankrupt, it harmed the local economy. However, Miami Springs remains a welcoming community that is considered insulated from many of the issues bigger cities like Miami face, including higher crime rates.
That being said, Miami Springs does see its fair share of property, violent, and sexual crimes. If you are injured in during an assault and battery, attempted murder, sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery, burglary, terrorism, a shooting, or other offense, contact us right away.

Depending on the circumstances, you may not have to rely on a criminal case to provide you with justice. You may have the right to hold someone responsible through a civil case, which also provides you with the opportunity to demand compensation for your physical, psychological, and financial injuries.Crime Victim Compensation
Once you tell us what happened, we will scrutinize your case in regard to whether you may be able to pursue damages from an at-fault party, whether that party is the perpetrator or a negligent property owner. Our team of Miami Springs crime victim lawyers are highly experienced in these types of cases. We know how to investigate the case, identify liability, and pursue compensation.
One of the most common ways we obtain compensation for crime victims is by proving a property owner, manager, or commercial tenant failed to implement and maintain adequate security measures. Negligent security is an all too common premises liability claim. Property owners should be aware of the risk of crime surrounding the premises and respond accordingly. When they fail to do so, you and others are put at risk.
For over 48 years, we have helped crime victims pursue full and fair compensation for their injuries. This includes compensation for your:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Income
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Reduced Earning Potential
- Loss of Consortium
