Parking Lot Assaults

FREE CONSULTATION

We don’t give them much thought, but parking lots can be dangerous places. And business owners have a responsibility to ensure their customers are safe while towing goods to and from their vehicles.

Premises liability covers a wide range of injuries including slips, trips, and falls as well as assaults and other crimes that may occur in poorly maintained parking lots. Things like security staff, security cameras, and adequate lighting all have a role to play in keeping people safe in parking lots.

During a recent interview on Good Day Tulsa, injury lawyer Michael Carr reviewed who can be held responsible for an assault in a parking lot as well as what types of damages victims may be able to recover.

“If you’re assaulted in a parking lot, of course you have a claim against the person who assaulted you and potentially against the business owner…and you may even have a claim against the security guard,” explained Carr. 

“If you’re assaulted you’d have a claim for damages…those would include medical bills, if you had to go to the hospital for your wounds,” Carr continued. “It would also include pain and suffering. If you’re assaulted, that’s a traumatic experience…the law allows you to receive compensation justly for all the things you’re going through…If you had to miss work you could seek a claim for lost wages. There’s a combination of things you could seek to recover if something like this happens to you.”
