Assault on Business Property
In Florida, assaults on commercial property can happen in almost any business setting. You may be entitled to recover damages if you were a victim of violent assault at a location such as:
- Shopping centers or malls
- Theme parks
- Concert halls
- Sporting arenas
- College or university facilities
- Parking garages or lots
- Department stores
- Other business establishments

As Florida has grown in population and because the state’s great beaches and tropical climate attract visitors from around the world, development of commercial properties has skyrocketed over the past few decades in order to keep pace. Malls offer store after store with products to please all tastes. Those shopping facilities, along with concert halls and other entertainment venues attract thousands of people, and parking lots and garages fill to overflowing – just the kind of scenarios that attract purse snatchers, car thieves, muggers, rapists and other criminals. If you’ve been assaulted on commercial property, you may be entitled to recover damages from the property owner or manager if measures to address your safety were lacking.
Fort Myers and Naples personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Attorneys for the Injured, know that our cities offer some of Southwest Florida’s most upscale and popular shopping and entertainment venues.
Establishments are designed and operated to appeal to a wide range of tastes when it comes to products, dining options, and other consumer preferences. But the premises liability attorneys in our firm also know that business owners and property managers may not exercise as much thought and care when it comes to ensuring that their premises are safe.
Sexual assaults, muggings, kidnappings, episodes of bullying, and other types of violent assault can happen in a matter of moments in the dark recesses of a parking garage or in isolated hallways and walkways in or between buildings. When business owners open their doors to customers, they do so with a duty to ensure that their premises are maintained properly. Because our Cape Coral and Fort Myers attorneys represent victims of assaults on business properties, they know that duty means that property should be free of obstacles or hazards, and that it should be clean and safe. If business owners anticipate that there might be risks to anyone visiting their premises, they have a further duty to warn customers.
