Articles Tagged with Brookfield Apartment Assault East Point


Georgia apartment residents have a right to feel safe and secure in their own homes. Yet, while home owners can implement any security precaution they deem necessary to protect themselves and their families, apartment tenants are largely at the mercy of their property owner and management company to deter crime. Security measures may include gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, off-duty police patrols, private security personnel, bright lighting, and background checks for both tenants and employees. Sadly, such precautions are all too often neglected to limit financial exposure. This inaction and greed can have devastating consequences.

According to The AJC, the “Brookfield Apartments on Washington Road may be one of the smaller complexes in East Point, but for three years, it had the most 9-1-1 calls….Criminal trespasses, burglary, stolen cars, shots fried, robbery. It ran the gamut,” East Point City Solicitor Antavius Weems told media. “Managers rented out rooms under the table and may have participated in some of the crime, [Weems] said. Police found violent gang members and other wanted criminals living at or frequenting the apartments.”  In November 2018, following “days of court testimony, three court orders, and at least tens of thousands of dollars in attorneys expenses” a judge finally ordered “the owners of East Point’s Brookfield Apartments to make it a safer place to live.”

Victims of East Point Apartment Assault or Injury: What Are My Legal Options for Justice and Compensation?

By law, Georgia apartment complex owners have a duty to protect tenants and guests from any foreseeable harm. Should a property owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, sexual assaults, or wrongful deaths suffered as a consequence. Compensation may be in the tens of millions of dollars. As each case and property is unique, victims of apartment crime should speak with an experienced security negligence firm as soon as possible to ensure all evidence, such as surveillance footage or broken lighting, is preserved and their best interests are protected.

Could These East Point Apartment Crimes Have Been Prevented?

Local News

City officials are reportedly cracking down on an East Point apartment complex, deemed a “nuisance” six months ago.

According to WSB-TV 2, a judge has ordered the “Brookfield apartment complex” to “pay for officers’ time after police said they’re answering too many calls on the property.” The property has apparently “turned into a haven for crime over the last few years.” Per the news report, “police answer about 25 crime calls per month,” including homicides, burglaries, car break-ins, and shots fired.

Did negligent security contribute to this alleged crime haven? We represent individuals and families in Georgia who have suffered a tragic loss or injury as a consequence of negligent property security, and we have recovered tens of millions of dollars for our Clients.

Our Legal Take

Apartment complex residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to those at the property and whether these crimes may have been prevented.

  • What security measures were implemented by the apartment complex owner and management following media reports of prior homicides, burglaries, and break-ins on property? 

By law, property owners in Georgia are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.  Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for any injuries or losses suffered as a consequence.

Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases against property owners in the State of Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
