Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Hotel?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard, an experienced gun violence lawyer, represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Recently, Michael provided some information in response to the common question, can a victim sue for being shot at a hotel?

"Hotel owners are obligated to uphold the safety of all guests and staff on their property, focusing on preventing violent crimes. The hotel owners and management should provide adequate security to see this is maintained. This may involve keeping a well-lit environment, installing security cameras, and hiring patrol guards. If ample security is lacking and someone is injured on-site by a violent crime, such as a shooting, the victim may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the property owner."

"The property owner is may be liable if the crime is proved to be foreseeable or the property owner was found negligent. A crime might be considered foreseeable if a history of violent crimes occurred on their property, but improvements were not made to the hotel's security. If a victim's gun violence lawyer can prove the crime happened because of inadequate security, the property owner may be found liable."
