A: It is highly unlikely you can successfully sue your apartment complex for the theft of your car absent very unusual facts and circumstances. But it does depend on the facts and circumstances.

Fortunately your car insurance should financially assist you under your comprehensive coverage.

A: It would be a difficult case, unless there are additional details in the form of any kind of representations or arrangements involved. You could reach out to local attorneys to discuss, but law firms might not handle something like this on a contingency basis. Good luck
