Financial Recovery for Damages due to Criminal Accidents

Palmetto Bay is in southeastern Miami-Dade County and Miami metropolitan area. It borders with Kendall, West Perrine, Cutler Bay, and Pinecrest. In 1992 it was one of the worst affected locations by Hurricane Andrew. In the aftermath, Palmetto Bay rebuilt with stronger building codes. In 2002 it was incorporated as a village. Estimates of the population in 2016 exceed 26,000. Florida legal system allows for several pathways to damages recovery for Palmetto Bay crime victims. You can choose from three roads to recovery. Talk to your Palmetto Bay accident lawyer, take all the circumstances of the case into consideration, and you’ll determine the best possible way to get compensated.

In general, we do not recommend choosing the most obvious one – suing the criminal. It seems easy to recover when the offender has been proven guilty and convicted, but from our experience, we can tell you that they almost never pay for damages. Very often, the offenders do commit the crimes due to lucrative reasons, because they don’t have money as well, so you can’t expect to get compensated by someone who has no money to pay you. That’s why we will suggest that you consider the other two options.

If the crime accident has occurred at premises owned or operated by third persons or parties, they may be liable for your injuries and damages. These premises can include:

  • Banks
  • Gas stations
  • Convenience stores
  • Apartment complexes
  • Strip shopping malls
  • Bars
  • Nightclubs
  • Hotels
  • Motels
  • concerts

Under Florida premises liability laws, they owe you a duty of care, which means that they must take all the reasonable measures to prevent foreseeable crimes. If they fail to provide that due to negligent or inadequate security, they may be liable under Florida law for your injuries and damages.

If you are not likely to get compensated by these two options, you may opt for the Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation. This is an avenue to recover some of your medical bills and lost wages. But there are certain legal requirements to prove that you qualify. Simply contact the Bureau and they will assist you with the process.

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
