Who is responsible for injuries suffered during an armed robbery in a parking lot?

When somebody’s injured by a criminal in the parking lot of their apartment complex, the apartment complex itself may be responsible for all the harm that was done. What the apartment complex needs to do, at a minimum, is take whatever security precautions it tells its tenants that it’s going to take when they move in there. Usually, or at least very commonly, apartment complexes say that the place is going to be gated, that the common areas are lighted, those sorts of things. If the apartment complex doesn’t even do what it said it was going to do, then it’s going to have a lot to answer for for crimes that happen there.
