Legal Rights of Victims Shot Inside a Hotel 

Our attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced violent crimes lawyer that represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, we asked Michael to share some of the legal rights for victims shot outside a hotel.

“Hotel owners, like other commercial property owners, have a legal duty to protect the guests and staff within their property. They should implement an adequate level of preventative security in order to provide this protection while attempting to prevent crimes from taking place on the premises. Some prime examples of adequate security measures that should be implemented include lighting in parking lots and courtyards, security cameras, and updated room keys. In the event that a hotel property owner does not offer sufficient security measures and a crime takes place, like a shooting, they may be held liable in a civil lawsuit.”

“Additionally, if a property owner is proved negligent, the crime would need to be reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime could include if crime in the area has been increasing, but the property owner failed to improve the security measures on the property. In cases of foreseeable and negligence incidents, the victim’s family should be aware of their option for filing a civil lawsuit. Victim’s families are encouraged to gain the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer in order to explore their legal rights fully.”
