Filing Lawsuits For Families of Victims Fatally Stabbed 

Attorney contributor Phil Edwards represents victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. As an experienced violent crime attorney, Phil shared his knowledge regarding the legal options available for the surviving family members of victims fatally stabbed at a motel

"Motel owners are legally responsible for maintaining a safe environment for everyone on and around the property. Motel owners should implement security measures, such as sufficient lighting and working security cameras, in order to reduce preventable dangers, such as shootings and stabbings. If a guest or employee is injured on the motel property due to the owner's failure to provide adequate security, the motel owner may be considered negligent and possibly held liable in a civil case."

"If a victim is injured during a violent crime, like a stabbing, while on the motel's property, the victim or their family should question if the motel provided adequate safety. If the crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the victim's family could file for compensation. For example, if violence had increased in the area, yet the owner failed to increase its security measures, a crime committed on the property could be deemed foreseeable. In cases of negligence, the families of victims fatally stabbed should be aware that they have the right to file a civil lawsuit. Family members are encouraged to speak with an experienced violent crimes attorney to best understand their legal options for compensation."
