As with all other places in Florida, getting injured in Hollywood will set you on a crossroad of three options for recovering damages.
One of them requires conviction of the offender. If he is caught by law enforcement authorities, proven guilty in court and convicted, he will likely be ultimately liable for paying for your injury-related expenses and damages. Unfortunately, most criminals lack the finances to pay for the full measure of the damages they caused. If he’s never caught and convicted or you don’t want to wait for the long criminal trial to end, then you can turn to other options.
One of involves the premises under control of a third person or company. This includes, but is not limited to retail stores, gas stations, banks, water parks, hotels, convenience stores, apartments and other establishments that invite guests and could be a target of criminals. Owners and managers of these premises owe guests and invitees a duty of care. It means that they must reasonably do all they can in order to provide an environment free of foreseeable crimes. If they breach this duty due to wrongful act or negligence, they may be liable for the damages and injuries that can result.
The last option is recovering some of your economic losses from the Florida Bureau of Victim Compensation. If your case meets the requirements set by the laws, you may be compensated by them for your injury-related expenses. It doesn’t matter if someone else’s responsibility has been proven or not. So long as your case meets the requirements, you’re may be able to recover some of your medical bills and/or lost wages.
