Legal Rights for Victims Shot Inside a Hotel

Our attorney contributor Reed Martens is an experienced violent crimes attorney. Martens has represented numerous victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked him to provide legal commentary on the rights of victims shot inside a hotel.

“Property owners, such as hotels, have a legal obligation to protect those in and around their property. In order to maintain the safety of their patrons, property owners should provide protective measures. One such example would include security cameras installed inside and outside of the hotel. Additional measures would be installing proper lighting throughout the property and hiring security guards. If a property owner lacks the proper security and someone is hurt, they may be held liable.”

“When a victim is hurt on the property of a hotel, they should ask if there were sufficient security measures in place. If only minimal safety measures were in place, the business owner could be considered negligent. If a crime can be seen as foreseeable and the property owner is deemed negligent, then the victim may have reason to pursue a civil lawsuit. An example of a foreseeable crime could include if crime rates in the area are increasing, but no advances to security have been made. In cases of property owner negligence, victims may even receive monetary compensation for damages.”
