Financial Recovery Options for Crime Victims in Westchester

Westchester crime victims have more than one options for financial recovery. The most obvious one will lead you to the criminal offender. Once his guilt is proven in court and he is convicted, he will likely be liable for paying for your injury-related harms and losses. But a good lawyer will always advise you not to rely on this option. Criminals rarely pay for damages. Sometimes they don’t get caught by the police, and in most cases, the criminal proceeding takes too much time, and most often, they don’t have money to pay for damages. That’s why you should consider claiming damages recovery from responsible third parties or the Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation.

Third persons, or commercial entities, such as affordable housing complexes, banks, retail shops, gas stations, convenience stores, shopping centers can be liable for injuries sustained on their premises under Florida premises liability laws. They owe visitors a duty of care, which means they should take all reasonable measures for preventing crimes on their premises. Sometimes they breach this duty due to negligent security and that allows criminals to commit crimes there. If those crimes cause personal injuries, the third person or party controlling the location where it happened may be liable to pay for the injuries.

The Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation also offers a possibility for recovery. There are some requirements that your case must meet in order to qualify for compensation, but if you have the documents to support your claims, you’ll be set to get compensation for some of your economic losses.
