Who Can Be Held Liable After A Shooting At An Apartment Complex?
Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, an experienced crime victim lawyer, represents crime victims and gunshot victims injured or killed in shootings, stabbings, and assaults at apartment complexes and commercial properties.
Owners and operators of apartment complexes have a legal responsibility to keep the premises safe and protect residents and their guests from foreseeable third-party criminal acts. Certain security measures help deter crime. For example, sufficient lighting, controlled-access gates, security cameras, and security or courtesy officers all help deter crime. If the landowner or property management company fails to take reasonable steps to address crime, a resident or guest who is shot or attacked at a dangerous property can file a civil lawsuit against the owner.
