Negligent Security at Apartment Buildings - Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett


Has it crossed your mind that perhaps you or a loved one were victims of a crime due to negligent security at apartment buildings in Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett counties in Georgia? Had there been adequate and reasonable security measures taken, would the crime still have occurred? If you think that there’s a possibility this may have happened to you, you should pursue a claim for your loss.

When we talk about a lack of adequate security, we’re referencing the idea of premises liability. An apartment building or complex has a duty to provide its residents, guests, or other authorized and invited individuals with proper security, but if they fail to do so, they could be found at fault. Our experienced attorneys have over 100 combined years of practice pursuing these types of cases, and they know what to look for when investigating. Here are some scenarios where negligent security at apartment buildings was found:

  • Lighting or light fixtures were found to be inadequate or not functioning.
  • Given known or prior criminal activity at or near the premises, not enough security was provided.
  • Surveillance systems went unmonitored or failed to capture any activity.
  • Door locks and gates were missing or malfunctioning. Windows were broken that allowed the crime to occur.
  • Security personnel that lack proper training or allowed unauthorized individuals onto the premises.
  • A lack of appropriate security standards was found.

If any of these conditions are found to be at the apartment building or complex in your situation, you may have a claim that you can pursue. Our attorneys know exactly how to fight for your right to receive compensation for your loss. They begin with a thorough investigation of your case and of the premises in question, checking for missing or broken equipment and security measures, as well as establishing the apartment building’s duty to provide the necessary security to prevent a crime. Oftentimes, our firm discovers that the accident could have been anticipated by the property owner or manager based on prior warnings.

Individuals in Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett counties in Georgia deserve proper representation after becoming victims of a crime. If you believe that the crime you or a loved one endured was due to negligent security at apartment buildings, do not hesitate to contact our attorneys.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
