$275,000 settlement – inadequate security – high crime apartment starstarstarstarstar

Apartment complexes owe a duty of reasonable care to their residents and guests.  Apartments are notorious for being crime magnets and the need for security is well known in the residential apartment complex management industry.  That’s even more so where there is an apartment in a high crime area.

John Leighton represented a man who was shot in a high crime apartment complex.  The shooting was apparently random, and fortunately did not strike any vital organ.  Our client sustained scarring to his arm.  A $275,000 settlement was negotiated for his benefit.
