Attack at ATM Machine Leads to Filing Bankruptcy
As the holiday season is approaching, this very sad tale was told to this fellow Broward County bankruptcy attorney. An honest law abiding lady was minding their own business, going about her day just as you and I would. She stopped off at an ATM machine as all of us do regularly. As she made her way to the ATM machine, a rough looking character appeared. He yelled out to the her: “Happy now? You beat me to the machine.”
What to do? She did, what you or I might do. She ignored the comment. Cursing by the aggressor followed, and then that escalated to her being physically and suddenly assaulted and beaten to a pulp. The $700 withdrawn from the machine by the victim was taken, and the victim was left beaten.
Unable to Run Her Business Following Brutal Attack at ATM Machine
One Random Event Can Change Your World
The violent attack was just the beginning. Problems mounted from there for this unlikely victim. She was self-employed. Her clients, who provided the victim’s income, dropped to nothing as the victim could no longer do the work her business required of her following a long hospital stay and her resulting physical limitations due to the attack. This shows how one event can change everything. Hospital bills piled up. Other monthly bills were mounting as well. Creditors started calling and writing letters. The attack victim did not know what to do. The only solution was to reach out to a local bankruptcy attorney.
