Legal Rights of Hotel Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau has represented numerous victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Bobby provided insight into the rights of a victim shot at a hotel on private property.

Do business owners have a legal obligation to protect the safety of patrons?

“Business owners have a legal obligation to protect their patrons and provide security for all patrons on their property. Ample forms of protection include, but are not limited to, security cameras and guards. If property owners fail to provide proper security measures for their patrons, and someone is hurt, the property owner could be considered liable in a lawsuit.

Can a victim sue a property owner for violent crime?

“For a property owner to be considered liable, there must have been negligence on behalf of the owner. An example of negligence is if a crime occurred, and the property owner did not improve the security camera. In this case, the crime would be considered reasonably foreseeable. If a crime could be deemed foreseeable, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the negligent property owner. If the property owner is found guilty, the victim may receive compensation for the damages.”
