Legal Options of Shooting Victims within a Hotel

Attorney contributor, Kevin Biniazan, has experience with violent crimes and representing the victims of shootings. Below, Kevin outlines his knowledge regarding the legal rights of victims shot at a hotel:

“Hotels and motels have a responsibility to protect their customers and ensure patrons' safety while on their property. Safety measures like cameras, security guards, attentive workers, and enhanced room key locks must be in place to uphold an institution's legal obligation. Hotels and their management can be seen as liable for crimes that happen within their property lines when these measures are not present."

"When discussing violent crimes on properties, negligence can be a persistent factor. Often, hotels have not done enough to keep their customers safe and free of harm, which can lead to shootings being seen as foreseeable. As crime rises in a particular area and shootings are regularly occurring, businesses and hotels, in particular, need to maintain a secure place and ensure crimes will not be happening on their property. Negligent hotels and predictable offenses can lead to grounds for a civil lawsuit. To this point, an experienced law attorney can assist victims and their families and help with the exploration of all legal options."
