Being injured in Palm Beach County, Florida, will lead you to consider options for damages recovery.
You can apply for compensation from the Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation. All they ask is to prove that you’ve been injured due to a criminal attack in Florida and prove your
harms and losses due to the sustained injuries. It’s an administrative procedure that requires lots of paperwork and it can lead to a recovery of some of your economic losses such as lost wages and medical bills.
The second one requires claiming damages recovery from the assailant himself. He is liable for the damages caused by his deeds, hence once he is convicted, and he would likely be liable for your injury-related expenses. But criminals rarely pay for their damages. This might take a while, though. If you don’t have time to wait until he is convicted, or caught and taken to court, you have the choice to rely on the Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation or third person’s liability.
Third parties, such as stores, gas stations, bars, or affordable housing complexes can be responsible or liable under Florida premises liability laws. They are obliged to provide a duty of reasonable care to invitees, which means they have to take all the necessary measures to prevent foreseeable crimes on their premises. When they breach this duty due to negligent security and it leads to injury-causing crimes, the injured person can claim damages recovery from the person in charge of the premises.
