Assault Victim in the Fort Lauderdale Area?
As a personal injury lawyer in the Wilton Manors and Fort Lauderdale area I am sometimes asked – Can I sue if I am the victim of an assault and battery…in a shopping center parking lot or at a night club for example? You are in fact able to sue the property owner or your attacker.
Suing the Property Owners
If your assault was at a bar or in a parking lot for example, we would determine whether the owner of the property had proper security surveillance in place and / or appropriate lighting. These are two of the many factors we would look at as your personal injury attorney when deciding to sue a property owner.
We would also look into whether the property owner has liability insurance to cover damages on their property.
