Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor, Mike Pfau has worked with many victims in civil lawsuits as an experienced violent crimes attorney. In an interview, Bobby provided his insight on the legal options of victims shot at a hotel:

"Motels and hotels have a legal obligation to protect their patrons and customers at all times. This should be at the forefront of their minds as a business that looks to implement all safety measures at their disposal. Enhanced surveillance, reliable lighting in and around the premises, and trained employees are all measures that must be taken seriously and in place for the security of those residing within the property. Victims and their families have every right to question the hotel or motel regarding their preparation for crimes that can occur on their grounds. Victims' families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against hotel owners and management if a lawyer can prove that the business was not doing their job to protect individuals at the time of the shooting."

"The owners and overall management of hotels can be deemed liable when a crime is seen to be reasonably foreseeable, in the cases of violent crimes. As crime rates rise in a particular area, hotels and motels must increase their security accordingly, and if this does not occur, crimes can be seen as foreseeable. In reasonably foreseeable violent crimes cases where the owner is deemed negligent, victims and their families, with the support of a violent crimes attorney, may have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
