Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Kevin to provide the following insight to help a victim’s family learn their legal rights when their family member is shot on hotel property.

“Hotel owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for patrons on or around their property. Property owners must provide adequate security to protect patrons. Examples of adequate security measures include well-lit parking lots and courtyards or security cameras. If property owners do not provide proper security, the property owner may be considered liable if someone is injured.”

“If a crime is deemed foreseeable, the property owner may be considered liable. For example, a crime would be considered foreseeable if previous crimes occurred on or around the hotel’s property, and the owner did not improve security measures. In such cases, the victim’s family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages. Victim’s families should secure the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer.”
