Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Laurence to provide insight into victims and their families’ legal rights when someone is shot on hotel property.

"Hotel owners have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for patrons. To ensure the safety of patrons on and around their property, owners must provide adequate security measures. Examples of adequate security measures include well-lit parking lots, security cameras, and police presence. If a property owner does not provide ample security for those on their property and someone is shot, the property owner may be considered liable."

"If a victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the property owner may be considered liable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if previous crimes have occurred on the property, but the owner did not increase security measures to provide a safe environment for patrons on their property. In such cases, the property owner would be deemed negligent in the violent crimes that occurred. Victims and their families should secure the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer to help them determine whether their case involves negligence."
