Legal Options for Victims of Shootings at Apartment Complexes

A regular contributor to the Legal Herald and attorney, Reed Martens represents victims of violent crimes in civil court suits. He has offered to share his own commentary below with regards to the civil litigation process.

"No matter what state you live in, property owners of apartment buildings have a legal responsibility to provide reasonable security for their residents and visitors. For instance, they may need to have lighting in parking lots, a form of security cameras, and on-site guards. These types of measures help protect owners from being sued if a crime takes place on the premises.

In the event that security is not provided, a property owner can be found to be negligent and hold partial responsibility for the crime and any resulting damages. To win a lawsuit for the victims, a violent crime attorney must prove that the owner was negligent because no security or safety measures were taken to ensure the safety of patrons or visitors.

Victims of shootings will likely be faced with substantial medical bills; often times, they will also turn to their families for help paying them. Unfortunately, loss of employment and wages will hinder anyone injured in these crimes from sustaining themselves, but a lawsuit may help provide compensation that makes up for these damages. Connecting with a crime victim attorney will help these victims and their families determine if a civil suit is the right choice," Kent described.
