Parking garages present inherent security challenges as they frequently occupy a large space with low levels of activity and numerous hiding places for would-be attackers.

A woman was sexually assaulted in the RSA Battle House Tower parking garage Tuesday, June 5, 2018, according to FOX 10 reports. Police told media the incident occurred “around 9:20 a.m. in the RSA Tower parking garage on Water Street.”

The attack raises grave security concerns for parking facility owners throughout the state. Mobile police are now making “suggestions to RSA on how to improve security so a crime like this doesn’t happen again.”

“This is a pretty open parking garage. It’s pretty easy for people to get into,” Public Safety Director James Barber told FOX 10. “There is a lot of walk through traffic also that occurs between the RSA and YMCA and so again, what type of measures can they reasonably take to secure the area from unauthorized entry and certainly people that are up to ill will.”

Victims of Parking Facility Violence: Know Your Rights

Parking facility patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. For example, should a parking garage owner have knowledge of prior violence on or near property, they have a responsibility to implement additional security precautions to protect patrons and deter such crime. Should a property owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, rapes, sexual assaults, or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.

I am the Victim of a Parking Lot Assault. Should I Hire an Attorney that has Telephoned Me or Contacted Me Directly?

The American Bar Association Rule 7.3 states that a lawyer “shall not” contact a prospective Client through a “live telephone” or an “in-person” visit. If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
