The high cost of property and large population of California have led to the development of massive apartment complexes throughout the State. Unfortunately, many apartments are unsafe for tenants and their guests. Unsafe locks, unlit parking lots, gang activity, and the failure to provide security at large apartment complexes can result in significant crime occurring. Murders, shootings, and stabbings are all too common in the news. Apartment break-ins that involve rape or robbery often should have been prevented.
San Diego California Apartment Crime Victim Lawyer
Many victims of crime or their families do not know that they can potentially hold a property owner or property manager responsible for crimes that occur on their property. However, apartment owners and managers have a duty to maintain apartment complexes in a safe and secure manner. This is especially true when significant prior crimes have occurred on the property and the owners have done nothing to increase security or make the area safer.
