Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has represented many victims in civil lawsuits as an experienced violent crimes attorney. In an interview, Dan provided his insight on the legal options of victims shot at a hotel:

"Property owners legally have an obligation to protect their guests, and this includes hotels and motels. Safety measures should be a high priority to the owners and management of the establishment. Examples of safety measures can include surveillance cameras, reliable lighting in and around the building, and trained employees. These should be in place for the security of those residing within the property and those visiting. Victims and their families have the right to question the hotel regarding their steps to provide their guests with a safe stay following a shooting on the property. Victims' families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the property owners if an attorney can prove that they did not do their job to protect its guests at the time of the shooting."

"Both the property owners and hotel management can be found liable if a crime is seen to be reasonably foreseeable. As crime rates increase in an area, hotels and motels should increase their security accordingly. If they fail to make these changes, crimes can be seen as foreseeable, and if a property owner or its management is deemed negligent, victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. At this time, it is encouraged for them to seek the representation of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
