Can I sue as a victim of an assault during an armed robbery in a shopping center parking lot?
Yes, you can. You may very well have a claim against the property owner if it’s clear that there has been ongoing criminal activity and the owner didn’t take the proper steps to protect the patrons. This would be referred to as a negligent security claim.
You may very well have a claim against the shopping center owners if they have a duty to keep their property safe, and if it’s clear that there’s been ongoing criminal activity and they didn’t take the proper steps to protect their patrons, then you may very well have a good case for that assault and battery that occurred on their property.
