I was attacked in a dark parking lot. Is the owner responsible for my injuries and damages?

The owner of the parking lot, and they may well be responsible. The critical thing you’ve told be is that it’s a dark parking lot, and a parking lot should be lit. If it’s open at night and open for people to come into it should be lit, because lighting drives away many people who would cause damage to other people. They just don’t like lights, and that’s a very inexpensive thing to do. Also, if the land owner knows or should know that this is a dangerous area than they should take other precautions. Certainly they should like it. Maybe they should put gates around it. Maybe they should put warnings out. Maybe they should say “Do not come here between certain hours.” So the owner may well be liable.
