Civil Liability for Home Invasion Robberies at Rental Apartment Buildings
A home invasion crime is commonly defined as the illegal entry by an individual into an occupied single-family home, apartment complex rental unit, condominium unit, business or other residence with the intent of robbery or another crime. Burglary, rape, assault & battery, false imprisonment, homicide, stabbing and gunshot crimes or injuries, etc. that are committed while the resident occupants or their guests are in attendance in their residence are usually “home invasions.”
If you or a loved one has been the victim of a home invasion crime, call our attorneys immediately. You may be entitled to monetary compensation for any damages you incurred as a result of the home invasion crime. The criminals simple threat of using force against the resident of the home is sufficient basis to hold the apartment complex owner, Management Company or Security Guard Company liable for the home invasion crime.
The owners of commercial properties and business owners, including convenience stores, gas stations, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, rental apartment buildings, condominium buildings, office buildings and shopping malls, have a responsibility to maintain reasonably safe premises for their tenants, invitees, guests or patrons. If their negligent security or inadequate security measures have resulted in an injury caused by another person’s home invasion criminal act, the commercial property owner or business owner may be liable for the resulting damages.

What Should a Crime Victim Do After They Have Been Injured?
If you have been hurt due to a home invasion robbery and/or on commercial property or within a business establishment due to another person’s criminal act, the first thing you should do after having your injuries tended to is a) take photos of the crime scene and b) get a copy of the initial police incident report or the final police report. The police report may include valuable information such as:
- Name of the perpetrator
- Location of the property
- The property owner’s name
- The property management company’s name
- The business owner’s name
- Details about the crime
It is important to get this information as soon as possible, so your attorney can begin to form the basis for your lawsuit. You can also ask your attorney to obtain the police report.
