Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced violent crimes lawyer in Indiana who represents victims of stabbings and their families in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Jeff shared his knowledge regarding the legal options of victims stabbed at a hotel.

"Hotel owners are legally bound to maintain the safety for everyone on and around the hotel premises. Hotel owners must implement adequate security measures, including a well-lit environment and security cameras throughout the hotel's property. If the hotel owner does not provide adequate security and a guest is injured, the owner could be deemed negligent and possibly held responsible in a lawsuit."

"Victims of violent crimes, like stabbings, are advised to check if the hotel owner provided sufficient safety during a crime. Hotel owners could be held liable for crimes committed on the property if they were reasonably foreseeable. A foreseeable crime might include if the crime in the area was increasing, but the property owner did not increase the security measures on the property. Victims and their families should know that they have the right to file a civil lawsuit which could help them recover financial compensation. However, they are heavily encouraged to explore their rights under the counsel of an experienced violent crimes lawyer."
