  • Could an armed robbery, at a well known bank (in front of their ATM) be a Personal Injury case?

    I was the victim of an armed robbery. This incident happened at a well known bank in front of their ATM. The thief took the cash from the ATM ($180), my wallet(Social/Passport), purse, cell phone, and keys as he wielded a knife at me. I don't thin...

    You possibly can purpose a claim for damages but since the harm was mainly emotional (and the stuff that was taken), you have some rights through the criminal process to recover as a victim. I think the civil suit would just open up your past more and make you relive this bad night for much longer for minimal gain. It's rarely worth it.

    I'm licensed in Florida and Alabama and we practice in Jacksonville. You should see a doctor and probably speak to a lawyer. Why would you be fired?

    I have a scar on my right arm about 5 inches long that I have to wear for life and headache something. I have a lawyer from a different state that practice in NC and I don't think he fighting for me to get a reasonable amount.

    John’s Answer

    It's always best to have a lawyer licensed in the state where you were injured. Scarring tends to make for valuable cases and needs to be presented in the best light- literally and figuratively. Give a GA licensed lawyer a call.
