Are you an Atlanta shooting victim?

Negligent security cases are based on the concept that tenants pay an apartment complex rent, and the apartment complex has a legal duty to provide tenants with a safe place to live. When an apartment complex fails to take the proper action to ensure that the apartment complex is safe, the apartment shooting victim has a case against the owner and management company of the complex as compensation for their injuries. If the shooting victim dies, their family could have a case.

Understanding the Law Protecting Apartment Shooting Victims

Apartment complex owners and management companies have a responsibility to keep their premises safe and free from dangers. Crime is one of those dangers. If crime routinely occurs in or around the apartment complex, the owner and management company are required to take appropriate steps to protect the residents from criminals. Common protections include hiring security, adding lighting, and fixing any broken gates or fencing. If the apartment complex fails to act and the crimes continue, shooting victims are entitled to receive money from the apartment complex.

Do I Need to Speak with a Certain Type of Lawyer for Apartment Shooting Cases?

Apartment shooting cases are very unique and very few lawyers actually handle these types of cases. At our firm, we received one of Georgia’s largest settlements of $2.2 million dollars for an apartment shooting case. Our experience and knowledge handling apartment shooting cases sets us apart from other lawyers or law firms in the area. Apartment shooting cases can take years and require multiple witness statements, multiple court appearances, and many experts. You need an apartment shooting lawyer who has the financial resources to go head-to-head with the apartment complex in a difficult case. Our firm has that reputation.

Why Our Investigation is Different.

Using our connections at local police departments, we start our investigation by pulling copies of every police report or 9-1-1 call for service at the apartment complex for a period of ten years. Often, this results in thousands of pages of records and thousands of lines of data. Using a specialized system, we organize and synthesize the data to determine whether the apartment complex knew or should have known how rampant the crime was at the property. Then, we interview witnesses and neighbors about complaints and reports to the complex about the dangers of crime. These items are critical evidence to win your case.

What To Do After an Apartment Shooting:

  1. Call the Police. A police report can be critical evidence in your case. If the police officer notates in the report that the crime was committed by the same gang or individual in the complex, this could be proof that the apartment complex should have acted. Allow the police to perform a complete investigation.
  2. Get the Names of Neighbors Who Witnessed the Incident. Providing your lawyer with the names of witnesses to the incident can be helpful in gathering information about what the complex knew about crime on the property.
  3. Take Photographs. After the police have completed their investigation, take photographs of the areas of the complex where the shooting occurred. Any bullet holes from this incident or other incidents could also be helpful when proving if the complex is responsible for the medical bills.
  4. Do Not Talk to the Complex Managers or the Insurance Company. Management might contact you after the incident. They could be recording you and you might say something accidentally which could harm the case. Let an experienced apartment shooting lawyer handle all communication.
  5. Call an Experienced Apartment Shooting Victim Lawyer. An experienced apartment shooting victim lawyer can take all the needed steps to protect you and your claim. If the victim is deceased, the lawyer can help appoint the representative who is responsible for bringing the case against the complex.
