Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Hotel? 

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience with violent crimes, such as shootings. As an experienced shooting victim attorney, he has represented hotel shooting victims and their families, helping them get the compensation they deserve. Brian recently discussed when victims could sue for being shot at a hotel

"Hotel owners are bound by law to offer security for their guests and staff while on their property. Security measures such as monitoring cameras, patrolling security guards, trained and attentive workers, and enhanced room key locks are just a few of the recommended preventatives. Hotels and their management can be held liable for preventable crimes that happen within their property lines if their property security is found to be lacking."

"In many cases involving violent crimes on properties, negligence is a persistent factor. Too often, hotel owners have not done enough to reduce the risk of foreseeable crimes. As crime rises in the area, hotels need to increase their security measures to minimize the risk of preventable crimes. Negligent hotel security can lead to the property owner being held accountable for shootings on the property. An experienced shooting victim attorney can assist victims and their families explore all their legal options."
