$220,000 settlement – shooting at apartment complex starstarstarstarstar

A shooting at a high crime apartment complex resulted in Leighton Law, P.A. obtaining a confidential $220,000 settlement on behalf of its client.

Apartment complexes which do not provide reasonable security are vulnerable to crime. The residents and guests there may be robbed, raped or assaulted.  Why should apartment complexes care about whether someone is the victim of a criminal attack on their property? If there is no legal or financial consequence they will not.  That is why civil cases brought against properties that fail to have appropriate security should be encouraged. That way we will see a decline in crime and a safer environment for everyone.
