Apartment Shootings: Landlords Can Be Liable for Lack of Security

Apartment complex owners charge thousands a month for rent, yet devote little or no effort to apartment complex security. This has led to Portland apartment complex shootings such as a recent shooting at Magnolia Manner. More likely than not, there was no security present, inadequate lighting, and no gates or barriers to keep trespassers off the property. The Mongolia Manner neighborhood is apparently a “thoroughfare for nefarious activities” yet the property owners appears to have done nothing to secure the property.

Premises owners must keep their apartment complexes safe. Experienced Portland apartment shooting lawyers can investigate the crime on the property, the property owner, and file a lawsuit for apartment shootings caused by negligent security. Under the law, property owners owe a duty to tenants to take reasonable steps to protect them from reasonably foreseeable criminal acts by third parties. If there have been prior similar crimes in the area or on the same property, then a property owner may be liability in a civil lawsuit for injuries. Apartment complex shootings ARE preventable with adequate security, cameras, lighting, and gates/fencing around a property.
