Representing Crime Victims Throughout Ohio
Ohio premises liability law requires that property owners make their premises safe for visitors, including providing adequate security to protect against crime. This may include installing surveillance cameras and adequate lighting and hiring qualified security staff, depending on the location of the parking lot and other factors.
We represent people who have been victimized in unsafe parking lots by crimes such as:
- Parking lot assault
- Sexual assault (rape)
- Stalking and harassment
Foreseeability is an important element in negligent parking lot security cases. If the parking lot is in an area where crime is unlikely to occur, there is generally a lower standard of liability placed on the owner.
However, if the parking lot is in a crime-ridden neighborhood and many people have been victims of crime in the parking lot before, the owner should be able to foresee that more crime is likely to occur there and he or she should be held to a higher legal standard.
