We lived in a secure gated community and in 4/22 a car pulled in and did not have code so when a car pulled out of exit it pulled in exit. The people that we do not know went into our apartment and shot and killed my husband. The apartment states they have camara for the tenents protection but the camara are so old the police could not even get a plate # off them. I have 4 children I have to take care of. Is the apartment responible in any way.
My condolences to you and your family. Speak to local personal injury counsel to investigate an inadequate security claim can be brought against the community.
I am sorry for your loss. The responsibility of businesses for security varies state by state. One important thing is did the complex have prior notice of this type of activity. Contact a premises attorney or personal injury wrongful death attorney quickly.
