Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has worked with numerous victims in civil lawsuits as an experienced violent crimes lawyer. During an interview, Haggard shared some insight on the legal options of victims shot at a hotel:

"Hotels have a legal duty to protect their patrons and customers while they are on their property. It should be a top priority to try to implement all safety measures possible. Surveillance, ample lighting in and around the property, and well-trained employees are all security measures that should be a high priority and put in place for the security of those staying on the property. Victims, along with their families, have a legal right to question the hotel regarding their security measures. Victims' families may even have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the hotel owners and management if a lawyer can prove that they did not do their job to protect individuals in the event of a shooting."

"Hotel owners and management can be held liable if a crime is seen to be reasonably foreseeable, in the case of a violent crime. An example of a foreseeable crime could include if the crime rates rise in the area, and the hotel fails to increase their security accordingly, and a crime takes place. If the owner is found negligent during reasonably foreseeable violent crimes cases, victims and their families may have the legal option to pursue a civil lawsuit and are encouraged to seek the aid of an experienced violent crime attorney."
