Inadequate Security and Crime Victim Injury

Apartment complex owners and other owners of commercial premises have a duty to reasonably protect the safety of residents and other invitees on their property. If you or a loved one has been severely injured in an apartment complex shooting or assault, you may be entitled to a recovery against the premises owner for their negligence. The personal injury lawyers at Wilhite & Associates, P.C. are experienced and knowledgeable in shooting injury and assault injury cases on commercial properties throughout Harris County including Houston, Northwest Houston, Champions, Spring, Tomball, Klein, the FM 1960 area, as well as The Woodlands and Conroe in Montgomery County. Contact us today for a free consultation to learn your rights.

As a general rule, apartment complex owners and other commercial premises owners are not responsible for the criminal conduct of others. However, if their property is located in a high crime area, or there is a significant recent history of criminal activity resulting in injury on the premises, the owner of the property may be held responsible if a resident or other invitee is shot or assaulted. High violent crime rates in the vicinity of an apartment complex or other commercial property can put the property owner on notice that their residents, customers, or employees are at risk for serious injury from shootings or assaults. Widely publicized news stories of violent crime in the area should also give notice to property owners that they need to provide proper security.

Property owners with notice that persons on their premises are likely to be injured by the criminal conduct of others have a duty to take necessary, reasonable precautions to prevent the injury. Following are safe-guards that can be used by property owners to help keep individuals on their premises safe:

  • Operational security gates
  • Adequate fencing around the perimeter
  • Proper lighting
  • Video security monitoring
  • Properly trained security officers on duty
  • Notice to residents and invitees of criminal activity
