$240,000 Settlement for Assault at Apartment Complex

Gerson and Schwartz, PA recently obtained a $240,0000 settlement for our client who was assaulted in her apartment complex. Our client, had returned home one evening and parked her vehicle in her assigned space in the parking lot area in front of her second floor condominium apartment. As she exited her vehicle she was grabbed by a young black male, pulled out of the vehicle and thrown to the asphalt pavement. The man got in her vehicle and drove off the property.


Our investigation showed significant history of serious crimes which pre-date our clients attack. Though, there were none of which that were substantially identical over the preceding years complaints concerning the adequacy of security were made to and discussed by the board.Unit owners made documented complaints about security on several occasions. At various times the board employed both a gate house guard and a roving patrol guard.

The roving patrol guard was only provided at night. To reduce costs, the roving patrol guard position was eliminated. The case settled at mediation for $240,000.
