Attorney contributor Brian Kent has experience with violent crimes, such as shootings. He represents the victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian has explained the legal rights of victims shot at a hotel.
"Hotel owners and management have a legal duty to provide proper security in order to protect their guests and staff. These safety measures can include security cameras, patrolling guards, alert buttons for front desk workers, and even upgraded room key locks. If sufficient security measures have not been implemented, hotels and their management may be held liable for crimes that occur on the hotel's property."
"Too often, neglect is a factor when it comes to violent crimes taking place on hotel properties. If a crime is determined to be foreseeable, it could be a result of the hotel failing to do its part to keep guests safe. If shootings are repeatedly occurring in the area, hotel owners should increase the security of their property. If a crime is found to be both foreseeable and a result of negligence, it would be sufficient grounds for a civil lawsuit to be filed. It is advisable to have an experienced violent crimes attorney to help victims and their families explore all their legal options."
