Representing Victims of Apartment Shootings

If you’ve been shot at an apartment complex, you may have a claim against the owner and/or management company of the complex for your injuries.


Owners and managers of apartment complexes and other properties have a legal responsibility to keep the premises safe for tenants and their guests.

If the owner or manager fails to do so, a tenant or guest who is shot or attacked as a result can file a civil lawsuit against the owner or manager. A poorly managed apartment complex that has malfunctioning locks, inadequate lighting, damaged security gates or fences, no security guards, no surveillance cameras, or suffers from other security issues can be liable for an apartment shooting. An experienced attorney can help determine if you have a claim and advise you of your options.

Unsafe Apartment Complexes

Criminals who prey on victims at apartment complexes take advantage of poor or non-existent security.

In addition to shootings, common examples of crimes that occur at unsafe apartment complexes include:

  • Murder
  • Armed Robbery
  • Robbery
  • Sexual Assault and Rape
  • Carjacking
  • Assaults
  • Stabbings
  • Forced Entry Break-ins
  • Automobile Theft
  • Automobile Break-ins

Criminals who prey on victims at apartment complexes take advantage of poor or non-existent security. A burned-out light bulb can turn a breezeway or stairwell into a perfect opportunity for a criminal; dark parking lots and unfenced areas can aid both the entry and escape of criminals. Inadequate locks on doors and windows can allow criminals to break into an apartment and leave little or no trace showing how they got in. The absence of security guards and surveillance cameras can embolden criminals and eliminate any concern that they might be stopped or caught.
