Asked over 1 year ago - Atlanta, GAFlag
I was beaten, arrested, indicted, and denied bond all within 84 hours. My family retain a lawyer, I was given bond and released 22 days later. I was charged with armed robbery. Indicteted on agg assult with deadly weapon + 2 other counts of false charges. My case was dismissed 4 months later
The person that assaulted me was a intruder in the interior of my gated parking garage. The complex had no interior cameras or security. I held a lease at this apartment complex for $1281 / monthly, 14 month lease.
I had multiple facial fractures, 5 to be exact. It was recommended that I get surgery immediately to repair one of my broken eye orbitals. I was never given surgery, I was held on the medical ward in the jail. I have no memory of any of it except seeing the guy with a gun.

I would suggest that you have the original incident reports, witness statements, the prosecutors file and any external surveillance recordings from the parking garage reviewed by an experienced premises liability attorney. From your description, it sounds like the police may have believed you were an aggressor in the incident, and, you may need to prove that you were not. The prosecutor's file may contain information that is helpful in establishing what evidence exists, and whether there is evidence tending to show that the complex negligently allowed a criminal threat to exist at the time of the incident.
