Victim of an Assault in South Florida?
As a personal injury lawyer with over 30 years of experience I am sometimes asked the following:
Can I sue if I was a victim of an assault and battery during an armed robbery in a shopping center parking lot?
Yes, you can sue your attacker. Of course you can also always sue the person who assaults you. However, the problem is that person who attached you may not have any assets or insurance to cover the incident. If you are the victim of an assault and battery - call injury lawyer Mr. Rosen for free consultation at (954) 640-0259.
Can I sue the property owners?
So as your attorney, we would then look to determine whether or not the property owner where the assault took place had appropriate security based on any prior acts of violence in the area as well as appropriate lighting if the incident happened at night These are just two of the various factors that must be looked at and examined to assess whether you can make a claim against the property owner and in most cases property owners do have liability insurance that will cover your damages in a case like this.
As you can see, there are complexities to pursuing a case like this, but it is very possible to achieve a positive outcome if you have a lawyer on your side who is experience and will do the hard work it takes to attain justice for you.
