Can I Sue For Being Shot in a Hotel Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced violent crime attorney in Florida. He has recently discussed the legal options available to shooting victims and their families.

"Like other commercial property owners, hotel owners must maintain a safe space for their patrons and staff. To do this, property owners must provide adequate preventative security measures. If a violent crime, like a shooting, occurs on a property without sufficient security, then the owner may be held liable for the crime in a civil lawsuit." 

"The foreseeability of the crime also factors into whether a victim has grounds to pursue a lawsuit against a hotel owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of violent crime where the owner neglected to improve the security of the property. Victims and their families are encouraged to learn more about their legal options with an experienced violent crime attorney."
