Legal Options Available to Victims of Apartment Complex Shootings

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard specializes in civil cases dealing with apartment shooting victims and their families. Below he has provided some of his legal advice on the matter at hand.

"When an apartment stabbing victim is considering his or her legal options, they should first be aware that all commercial property owners are required by law to ensure the safety of all employees and customers on site. And to be able to protect these patrons from preventable dangers, such as a shooting, property owners need to have adequate security on or around the premises. Things like video surveillance or security guards may suffice, but of course there are various measures that can be taken. The point, here, is that if an apartment owner does not provide adequate security and someone is stabbed on their property, he or she may be held liable for the crime inflicted onto the victim. And in turn, the victim may have a valid lawsuit against the owner on the grounds that the level of security was inadequate."

"Nevertheless, a violent crime victim attorney needs to show more than just inadequate security in these types of cases. Additionally, they must be able to prove that the crime that was committed was reasonably foreseeable. What this means is that if an apartment owner does not upgrade security despite hearing about increasing crime in the area, he or she may be held liable if someone falls victim to a violent crime on their property. Overall, though, an attorney needs to show that the security was inadequate and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable before he or she may be able bring forth a lawsuit against the owner."
