If you have been attacked, likely you are shaken up and not sure of what you need to do or what you should do it anything.
In Georgia, if you are attacked at an apartment complex you may have a claim against the apartment complex for negligent security. These cases are very fact specific, so you should contact an attorney who handles negligent security cases.
Some of the factors involved in these type of cases would be:
Is the apartment complex in a danger or high crime area?
Is there any security provided by the apartment complex?
How is the lighting?
Are there security cameras?
Are there live security guards?
Clearly as mentioned above, these cases are fact specific. Also, depending upon the type of attack which occurs can also have an impact on your potential claim. Attacks range from someone assaulting a person, to someone raping or shooting and killing another person.
