Action News 30 has reported that two men were stabbed in the parking lot of Motel 6 located at 1087 N Parkway Dr, Fresno, CA 93728.
At approximately 2 a.m. on Friday, December 31, 2021, police responded to a stabbing at a motel in central Fresno. The two men were taken to the nearby hospital and are in critical condition. Police believe the stabbing occurred in the motel parking lot rather than inside one of the rooms.
The investigation is ongoing as they try to determine what led up to the stabbing. Many witnesses have been questioned, but no suspect has been named at this time.
Attorney Bobby Thompson helps stabbing victims recover compensation to cover any personal and financial burdens following the injury. As an experienced stabbing victim lawyer, Bobby recently answered, "Can I sue for being stabbed in a motel parking lot?"
"Motel and hotel owners have a legal obligation to make sure their businesses are reasonably safe and secure for their guests to stay. This includes protecting against foreseeable violent crimes such as stabbings. While not all motel stabbings are preventable, some could have been prevented if the motel owner had maintained adequate security standards. These often include security cameras, upgraded room key cards, and limiting entry and exits. If a motel owner fails to offer a standard of security, they can be deemed negligent by a court."
"Additionally, if the area was suffering from an increase in violence or criminal activity, the motel owner would be responsible for increasing its security. This may include hiring patrolling guards to monitor the property. In cases involving security negligence, motel stabbing victims may have reasons to pursue a lawsuit against the motel owner. Stabbing victims and their families are encouraged to speak with an experienced stabbing victim lawyer to learn more about their legal options and a possible chance for compensation."
