Miami Beach Physical Abuse

Do you have a legal claim after a physical assault or battery in Miami Beach? Many people do not realize that if they have survived a battery or an assault, they may have a legal claim not only against the assailant in the situation but also against the property owner where the attack took place. The reality is that in many cases battery and assault as well as other crimes can be prevented with adequate supervision and adequate security.

If you would like to know whether you have a claim and would like to know how much your potential case may be worth, contact Flaxman Law Group to schedule a free case assessment. Flaxman Law Group is a full service law firm and our attorneys have more than 60 years of combined experience with battery and personal injury cases.

Do I Have a Premises Liability Case in Miami Beach or My Community?

Sadly, many instances of battery and assault need never happen at all because they are preventable. Some owners of workplaces and public properties do not take adequate care to provide a safe environment. For example, a property owner:

  • May be negligent in providing adequate lighting
  • May not take adequate steps to provide a safe environment, especially if it is known that an area has a high crime rate or recent crime activity
  • May not take care of windows, doors, and other points of entry to secure them
  • May not properly screen employees and others who have access to the property
  • May not hire off-duty police officers or others to act as security on the property
  • May not install security cameras or may fail to advertise that security cameras are in place

In all of these cases, it may be possible that the property owner was negligent in providing adequate security and may be held partly liable if an assault or battery took place on their property. This is especially the case if the property owner knew or should have known about a danger possible to visitors of the property.

Get Legal Help About Your Case

If you have been injured in an assault, rape, battery, or other violent crime, it is important to consult with a personal injury attorney as well as police officers in your case. Police officers can help you determine whether it is possible to file a criminal charge against the assailant. However, even if the assailant is never caught you may have a legal claim against other liable parties in order to seek compensation for any damages that you have suffered.

If you have been injured, feel free to contact Flaxman Law Group for courteous and honest legal advice. When you contact Flaxman Law Group, you can speak to a paralegal or to Charles Flaxman, the principal and founder of our full-service law firm, about your situation. Charles Flaxman has more than 30 years of experience as a trial attorney and he was also an insurance adjuster for more than 10 years before graduating near the top of his law class. His experience in the insurance industry means that he understands how insurance companies work and the policies that these companies use to potentially undervalue your claim. He can put this knowledge to work on your case today.
