Legal Rights for Victims of Shootings at Hotels

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, has years of experience representing victims of violent crimes, such as shootings. Michael has shared some of his knowledge on the legal rights of victims shot at a hotel:

“Hotels and other establishments that offer lodging have a legal obligation to protect their guests and to ensure the patrons' safety while on their property. The hotel and management should utilize safety measures like surveillance cameras, security guards, trained and attentive staff, and even enhanced room locks to uphold the establishment's safety. Hotels in addition to their management can be held liable for any crimes that happen on their property if such security measures are not in place."

"When it comes to violent crimes on commercial properties, negligence can often be a factor. If a hotel has not provided enough security to keep their customers safe, and a shooting takes place, it can be seen as foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if the area's crime rises but the hotel fails to maintain a secure place and a crime occurs. Negligent hotels and foreseeable offenses can lead to grounds for a civil lawsuit. An experienced violent crimes attorney can assist victims and their families with exploring all their legal options."
