“Neighbors said the complex’s security gate hasn’t worked in quite some time.”
It keeps happening. Almost every day brings another incident of violent crime in Memphis area apartments. Apartment residents in Memphis have a right to demand that property managers and owners take reasonable steps to prevent foreseeable crimes on their premises.
Over the last few years, our litigation attorneys are spending an increasing amount of our time representing crime victims when property owners fail to take these reasonable precautions. While not every crime is preventable, and not every crime is the result of a failure of property owners, frequently, bottom line profit is placed before safety of residents.
