Were You Injured In A Parking Lot Assault?
Parking lots are often high-crime areas. They provide access to victims who may be opening their purses to remove keys or are otherwise distracted. They provide areas for perpetrators to hide. If you were attacked in a parking lot, it’s likely that others have been similarly victimized.
At Isenberg & Hewitt, PC, in Atlanta, our lawyers represent crime victims in personal injury lawsuits against parking lot owners and managers who are negligent in providing security for their customers and guests. While no one can guarantee the safety of everyone who comes onto their property, owners and managers have a duty to take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for customers and guests.
When Are Parking Lot Owners Responsible For Assault Injuries?
The owners and managers of parking lots may be liable for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering if they were negligent in their duty to protect guests from unsafe conditions. Examples of unsafe conditions include:
- Failure to warn guests of known or foreseeable dangers
- Failure to install crime deterrence measures such as video cameras and appropriate lights
- Failure to provide adequate security
