Florida laws offer crime victims in Riviera Beach several ways to recover financially from the criminal offense consequences.
The most obvious one leads to the criminal proceedings against the offender. If he is proven guilty and convicted of the crime, then he is likely liable for paying for the injuries as well. There are few downsides to this option. First and foremost, offenders rarely pay damages because most often they don't have money to pay you. Second, sometimes they are never caught by the police. And finally, even if they get caught, the procedure to get convicted can take a while.
There are two other options to try out. One of them leads to third persons and commercial owners that invite people to their premises. If you've been injured at premises of a third party, they might be liable under Florida liability laws. Commercial property owners owe visitors a duty of reasonable care, which means they have to provide a safe environment for guests and invitees and work to avoid foreseeable crimes. When crimes still happen due to negligent security, the owner or management may be legally responsible for the sustained injuries and damages.
Finally, the Florida Bureau for Victim Compensation offers a good chance to get compensated for some of your economic losses. All you need is to deal with all the administrative paperwork, proving that you've been injured due to a criminal offense in Florida and you've had economic losses consequently.
Although it sounds as if it was easy to recover, be assured that there are many obstacles on the road to just compensation.
