Georgia Woman Shot at Apartment Complex: Is Negligent Security to Blame?

Recently, a 47-year-old woman was shot outside of her apartment in Savannah.

Several residents reported vehicle and property damage at the apartment complex the night of the shooting.

How safe is this apartment complex?

In Georgia, more than a million residents live in apartments.

By law, apartment owners are required to protect all its residents and guests from any foreseeable harm while on the property.

So did the apartment complex's actions or inactions allow this criminal act to occur?

Here are some things we would investigate to see if there is a claim for Negligent Security:

Prior Crimes

Did the apartment company know or should they have known about prior crimes in the complex.

Internal Reports

What Security practices are in place?

What security measures, if any, are in place to protect the tenants?  Are there gated entrances? Is there appropriate lighting for parking lots or breeze ways.
