Can Apartment Building Owners Be Held Responsible For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney  Dan Lipman works closely with victims injured by violent crime. Below is a brief generalization of Dan’s thoughts on apartment building owner’s liability for violent crime on their properties.

“Commercial property owners have a legal duty of providing their customers with adequate security to ensure their safety. Adequate security may include things like establishing well-lit parking lots and hiring security guards. If this legal duty is not met, the property owner may be held partially responsible for any violence that takes place on their property," states Mr. Lipman.

He continues: "Additionally if a shooting takes place on a property with a history of violence in the area, but the owner did not take the steps to improve security measures, then the crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable. A violent crime victim may only have a valid lawsuit against a property owner if the crime was deemed reasonably foreseeable and if the crime was caused by inadequate security."

If you or a loved one has fallen victim to an apartment building shooting, you are encouraged to contact an experienced crime victim lawyer to discuss the potential legal options available to you.
