Can You Recover Compensation After Being Injured in a Crime in Pinecrest, FL?

If you or a loved one was a crime victim in Pinecrest, call Gerson & Schwartz P.A. as soon as you can. You deserve to learn more about your legal options. You have no control over whether a prosecutor pursues criminal charges against the culprit or whether a judge or jury finds them guilty. But you may have control over using civil processes to recover compensation. Our Pinecrest crime victim attorneys can explain your options.

One option is to pursue compensation from the offender through a personal injury claim. This may be a possibility, but not always. If the offender has little-to-no income or assets, then you may win a judgement they cannot pay. A personal injury lawsuit may be a waste of your time and money. We will look into this option for you.

A second option is to determine if the property owner where the crime took place is liable for your injuries. If you were harmed on someone’s personal property or on a business’s property, that property owner may have owed you certain security measures. If we find the property owner failed to adequately protect you from a foreseeable crime, then you may be entitled to compensation through a premises liability lawsuit. Our crime victim lawyers in Pinecrest will work to prove the owner is guilty of inadequate security to obtain you compensation.

A third option is the Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation. Through this organization, you may be entitled to compensation for your economic losses. At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we have decades of experience helping crime victims gather the necessary paperwork and submitting proof to the Bureau for processing. We are here to help you obtain the maximum compensation possible for your medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, this will not cover your pain and suffering, mental anguish, and many other 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
