Legal Options of Shooting Victims Inside a Hotel

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has years of experience with violent crimes and representing the victims of shootings and their families. Below, Marc explains the legal rights of victims shot inside a hotel and their families

"Hotels owners have a responsibility to provide a level of protection for their guests and staff on their property. These safety measures can include installing security cameras, hiring security guards, training workers to be attentive. Hotels should have these or other security measures in place. Hotel owners and their management can be held responsible for crimes that happen on their property if security measures are neglected."

"When violent crimes happen on commercial properties, negligence can be a factor. Too often, hotels have not done enough to maintain the safety and protection of their guests. This can lead to crimes, such as shootings, as being considered foreseeable. If the crime rises in a particular area or shootings are regularly occurring, hotels should increase their security as a preventative measure. Negligent hotels and predictable offenses can be reasonable grounds for victims and their families to pursue a civil lawsuit. An experienced attorney can guide victims and their families with the exploration of all legal options."
