Our experienced premises liability attorneys have handled many complex cases involving tenants and property owners. Being the victim of a crime is terrifying, especially if the police aren’t able to catch the perpetrator. The good news is you could have recompense if you were on someone else’s property when you were targeted. Let Daspit Law Firm give your case the consideration it deserves.
As a tenant, you may be unsure of what you can reasonably expect from your landlord. You know they need to repair anything in your apartment that threatens your health or safety, and they cannot interrupt your access to utilities without good reason. Unless you damage the property, they will also need to return your security deposit. These obligations are fairly straightforward and outlined in your landlord/tenant agreement.
But what about protecting you from crime? If you were robbed in your apartment complex, is your landlord responsible because the crime occurred on their property? At The Daspit Law Firm in Houston, our attorneys have years of experience navigating these complex liability issues and helping clients secure million-dollar settlements for their injuries and losses. If you became a victim of crime because of your landlord’s negligence, we are ready to represent you in a court of law.
The time to file a claim is limited. Call (888) 273-1045 for immediate support—our negligent security lawyers are available 24/7, every day of the week.
Houston has experienced a surge in population growth in recent years. With more and more residents looking for places to live, landlords are tempted to take shortcuts and skip background checks in the screening processes. You may find yourself feeling unsafe in an apartment complex, not knowing if your neighbors or property employees are law-abiding citizens, or if your home is adequately protected from dangerous strangers.
Under Texas law, landlords and apartment complex owners are not obligated to protect their tenants and residents from crime. However, negligent security (a subset of premises liability) may allow you to hold your landlord liable if you suffer injury or loss from criminal activity on their property.
Here are a few examples of when you may be entitled to compensation after experiencing crime in an apartment complex:
Understanding the nuances of negligent security takes years of experience and rigorous training. Our lawyers are ready to answer all your questions and help you decide if you are entitled to damages.
