Legal Rights of Victims Shot Inside a Hotel

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has experience representing victims of violent crimes, such as shootings. Michael has explained the legal rights of victims shot inside a hotel.

“Hotels are legally obligated to provide safety and protection to their patrons and guests. Steps to preventing crimes on the hotel property could include safety measures like surveillance cameras, security patrols, and proper lighting throughout the property. If these preventative measures are not implemented, hotels and their management could be held liable for crimes, such as shootings, that occur on the hotel property.”

“Negligence is often the reason violent crimes occur on commercial properties, like hotels and restaurants. If a crime is considered foreseeable, it could result from the hotel not doing everything within its ability to keep its patrons and guests safe. If crime is continuously occurring in the area, hotels and other commercial property owners should ensure that the security on their premises has been increased as well. Crimes that are deemed reasonably foreseeable and negligent can result in grounds for a civil lawsuit. An experienced violent crimes attorney is necessary to help victims of shootings and their families understand their legal rights.”
