Can I sue if I was a victim of an assault and battery during an armed robbery in a shopping center parking lot?
Just because you were a victim of a criminal act by a third party in a shopping center or a parking lot doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a right to recover against the property owner. A lot of factors come into play in these types of cases. Number one: was the owner aware of criminal conduct in the past in that parking lot or shopping area? Number two: is there a general atmosphere of violence in the neighborhood that the owner should have known about and taken steps to protect you? Those are all factors that we consider in these claims and factors that will ultimately be determinative as to whether you are able to succeed in a claim.
