Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced violent crime attorney licensed in Florida and represents victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. Below, Michael provides insight into the legal options of victims stabbed at a hotel.

"Hotel owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for those on and around their property. To uphold the safety of those on and around the area, property owners should implement security measures such as strong lighting and cameras, but there are more. If a hotel fails to provide adequate security and someone is harmed on their property, the property owner may be deemed negligent and liable in a civil lawsuit."

"When a victim is stabbed on hotel property, they should question if the hotel provided adequate safety to ensure to the best of their ability the environment was safe. Hotel property owners can be deemed liable for a violent crime if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a  reasonably foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area increased drastically, but the property owner did not implement more security measures. In negligence cases, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages.
