Legal Recourse For Apartment Complex Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard works with apartment shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Mr. Haggard has prepared to share his legal advice with victims and their families regarding such matters.

Every commercial property owner is legally required to keep their patrons, employees, and residents safe from harm. To do this, a property owner must first provide adequate security on the premises. Adequate security includes things such as overnight security guards or video surveillance, but of course the list extends further. A victim of a violent crime like an apartment shooting may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if it can be determined that the owner failed to meet the legal requirement of adequate security.

But the failure to meet adequate security standards is itself not sufficient to generate a lawsuit against a property owner. Additionally, the victim must prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. If a shooting occurs at a location where previous violent incidents transpired or were even close by, then the violent crime that followed may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Overall a building owner may be held liable for a shooting if he or she did not provide adequate security and if the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable.

If you or a loved one has been a victim to an apartment building shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney.
