Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed Inside a Hotel

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crimes lawyer who represents victims of stabbings along with their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian has shared his insight regarding the legal options of victims stabbed inside a hotel.

"Hotel owners are legally obligated to provide a level of safety for everyone on and around the hotel. In order to uphold safety, hotel owners should implement security measures, including proper lighting and security cameras throughout the grounds. In the event that the hotel neglects to provide adequate security and a guest or employee is harmed on the property, the hotel owner could be considered negligent and even be held responsible in a civil lawsuit."

"If a victim suffers from a violent crime, like a stabbing, while on the hotel's property, the victim or their family is advised to inquire if the hotel provided adequate safety, ensuring the property was safe to the best of their capabilities. Hotel owners can be deemed liable for violent crimes if they were committed on the property and reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime could include if the area's crime rates had increased, yet the property owner failed to increase its security measures. In cases of negligence, both the victims and their families should be aware that they have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit and could even be owed financial compensation. At this time, they are encouraged to seek the advice of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
