Sunset Place Crime Victim Lawyer

South Miami Personal Injury LawyerWere you injured in a criminal attack in Sunset Place? You should know that you are not alone. Folks who go to Sunset Place never think that they may end up injured in hospital after their visit there. But criminals count on you letting your guard down. They also factor in lax or inadequate security plans. If the security doesn’t pay attention either, they have a wide-open opportunity to harass, rob or hurt the guests.

Sometimes, there is no one to blame for a crime other than the criminal. But in other situations, the crime was foreseeable and therefore potentially preventable. To determine who, other than the criminal, might bear some responsibility for injuries or deaths arising out of crimes at Sunset Place, you can call our Sunset Place crime victim lawyer at the Gerson & Schwartz law firm in Miami for help.

Sunset Place

Sunset Place is the commonly referred name of The Shops at Sunset Place, a large outdoor shopping complex in Miami. It is located near the intersection between South Dixie Highway and the Red Road.

Sunset Place Crime Victim Compensation Options

People injured in crime attacks in Sunset Place should know that the mall and the stores have the duty to provide them with a reasonably safe environment for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Florida law requires the Sunset Place to take all the necessary measure to prevent any foreseeable crimes at their premises. In all too many cases inadequate or negligent security plans lead to a breach of that duty. When that happens, Sunset Place and potentially some of its tenants may be responsible for your injury-related expenses and losses.

You can also claim damages against the criminal offender, but don’t expect compensation from them anytime soon. If they are caught at all, it will take a long time until conviction. Even when they are convicted, they usually never have the money to pay for all of the damages they caused by their criminal actions.

There is one more option, too. It leads to the Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation, which is a governmental agency that compensates the crime victims in Florida for the economic losses incurred from crimes in Florida. There are some legally set requirements that your case must meet to qualify for compensation. But once you comply with those, you may be in line to receive compensation for some of your medical bills and lost wages. But this option will never lead to full and fair compensation for all of your damages following injuries or deaths at Sunset Place.

Client Reviews

I am a lawyer in Massachusetts. I had a case to refer against a cruise line in Florida and did my homework on which firm to represent the client. Let me take the guessing out of it for you. Call this law firm and sign up. Brandon Parrelli, Google User
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

I hired Gerson & Schwartz, PA for a personal injury/slip and fall case. Phil Gerson, Nick Gerson, and Ed Schwartz were awesome! They were very professional, supportive, and informative through the whole process. I was amazed at how much time and effort they put into presenting my case. They fought hard for me and I am very happy with the outcome. I love these guys and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an attorney who will look out for your best interest and fight hard for what you deserve. Deb Betts, Google User
