I own a commercial property off the road and someone is using my property to conduct their business without my permission and is not paying me for more than 3 years and continue to using my parking lot for their business.
Will I be able to file a lawsuit against them for my losses?
This could be a case of trespass. The part about "not paying" you is confusing, as it suggests there may be a lease? Consider consulting with an experienced real estate litigation attorney to file a lawsuit seeking an injunction to stop the activity. I am not sure what you could recover here in terms of money damages, if you waited this long despite knowing about this for all of these years. The attorney you consult with can talk throught that with you.
Yes you should hire a lawyer and get them paying or get them off your property.

If this business is not a lawful tenant or designated occupant, you will either need to have its officers criminally trespassed, or sue for trespass to land in civil court to have them removed. If you can show actual economic or other harm due to the putative defendant's conduct, you can sue for money damages as well. I would speak to a real property litigator for specific guidance on the civil aspects of this question, and let local law enforcement handle the criminal ones. Best wishes to you in December.
