Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea, an experienced violent crime attorney, works with victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to share insight on the legal right of victims of stabbings family's legal rights.

"Hotels have a legal obligation to provide safety to those on and around their property. To ensure safety from preventable dangers, hotel owners should implement security measures such as cameras, guards, and strong lighting. Unfortunately, often hotels fail to provide adequate security. In such cases, victims and their families could have grounds for a civil lawsuit for negligence."

"Families of victims of stabbings should question if the hotel did everything possible to prevent violent crimes from occurring. A victim's attorney would have to prove there were inadequate security measures in place and that the crime could have been prevented and was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime could be if the crime rates were rising in the area, but no security adjustments were made. In cases of negligence, victim's families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
