Legal Rights of Victims Shot in a Hotel

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has years of experience representing the victims of shootings along with their families. Dan has explained some of the legal rights of victims shot inside a hotel.

“Hotels have a legal duty to take the responsibility of protecting their guests into the utmost consideration. These legal obligations should entail them implementing safety measures such as security cameras, security guards, front desk alert systems, and upgraded key locks. If these measures are lacking, hotels and their administration could be deemed liable for crimes, such as shootings, that take place on their property.”

“Too often negligence is a contributor to violent crimes that take place on hotel properties. If a violent crime, like a shooting, is found to have been foreseeable, it could be a result of the hotel not doing its part to keep its guests safe. If violent crimes have been increasing in the area, hotels should increase their security measures to combat the chance of them happening on their property. If the hotel has lacked in either area, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. It is recommended to gain the counsel of an experienced violent crimes attorney in order for victims and their families to explore their legal rights fully.
