Inadequate Security Case Against Apartment Complex
Sam McGee represented a family in a case for the death of their adult son who was gunned down at his apartment complex. The details of this settlement are confidential, including the names of the parties and the venue in which the case was pending. However, we can disclose that the young man was completely innocent in the incident, and was shot several times by someone who apparently mistook him for someone else that was involved in a dispute. Plaintiff alleged that the apartment complex failed to have adequate security measures in place in light of significant crime in the area, and also that the apartment complex violated its own rules by failing to do required background checks and allowing felons to live on the property. The apartment complex contended that its security was adequate, and that it was unaware of the alleged perpetrator living on the property. The case settled for $850,000.00.
