Are Apartment Complex Owners Liable For Violence On Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson has experience representing victims of preventable violent crime, such as apartment shootings or bar stabbings.

“All commercial property owners have a legal duty to prevent any foreseeable violent crime from happening on their premises. Therefore, property owners of bars, parking lots, and apartment complexes must provide adequate security to protect their patrons”, stated Mr. Gibson.

“In some cases of apartment complex violence, the property owner may be liable if there is negligent security. However, this could only be the case if it is proven that the violence occurred due to inadequate security or if the property has a history of criminal violence. Essentially, if the violence was reasonably foreseeable and only occurred due to inadequate security, the victims and their families could have a case for a lawsuit against the property owner“, explained Mr. Gibson.
