I was in a domestic dispute with my boyfriend when he started to physically attack me. This happened in the lobby of the apartment building I live in right in front of the security desk. I am a tenant there and I pay rent. I asked the security gaurd to call the police for me and the security gaurd watched my b/f beat me up and did nothing. I suffered two broken ribs, a laceration to the face as well as other brusing and a sprained ankle. Is there something I can do legal I felt the security officer should have done more to protect me as a resident of that building.

Whether the guard's employer or your landlord can be held liable for your injuries will depend on the specific nature of the services the guard/security company was contracted to perform. It will also depend on whehter he departed from the internal rules established by the contract or by your landlord. Please contact me so that we can discuss this in further detail. Please note that this is not specific legal advice, is not intended to create an attorney/client relationship and should not be relied upon without further consultation with our office.
