Legal Options of Victims of Violent Crimes in Hotels

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crime lawyer, represents victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Bobby to provide legal commentary on the rights of victims shot at a hotel.

“Property owners have a legal obligation to protect those on and around their property, and this applies to hotels. To ensure the safety of patrons, property owners must provide protective measures. For example, bodyguards and bright lighting. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is hurt, they may be considered liable.”

“When a victim is hurt on private property, they must ask if there were any preventative measures. If there were no safety measures in place, the business owner could be considered liable. Liability would be assumed if the crime was foreseeable. Meaning, there have been high crime rates in the area, but no advances to security were made. In cases of property owner negligence, victims may receive monetary compensation for damages.”
