Apartment Complex Security

Apartment complex owners and managers are responsible for providing adequate security to residents and visitors designed to prevent foreseeable criminal activity or intrusion. What constitutes adequate security may vary somewhat depending on the individual property. In general, adequate security measures may include:

  • Properly secured gates, doors, and windows
  • Installation of security cameras in public areas
  • Adequate lighting in hallways and parking areas
  • Properly maintained emergency exits and alarms
  • Presence of trained, pre-screened security guards on the premises
  • Recognizing and addressing criminal history on or near the property

Negligent Apartment Security Claims

Victims of assault, rape, mugging, or other crimes on a public or private property should immediately report the incident to law enforcement and the property owner. Proper reporting is important because it is the plaintiff’s burden to prove that their injuries were caused by negligence. Texas law requires plaintiffs in a negligent apartment security claim to prove:

  • They were lawfully on the premises
  • The property owner had a duty of care to provide adequate security
  • The property owner breached their duty of care to provide adequate security
  • The breach in the duty of care caused the incident resulting in injury

Successfully litigated negligence claims can help victims recover financially from medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, pain and suffering, or permanent disability. The damages pursued in a negligent security case largely depends on the individual facts of your case. That is why it is impreative you contact us as soon as possible.
