Legal Rights of Shooting Victims on Hotel Property

Our attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, has represented numerous victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. During an interview, we asked Bobby to provide legal commentary on the rights of victims shot at a hotel.

“Commercial property owners, such as hotels, have a legal obligation to protect the guests and staff on their property. In order to maintain the safety of their guests, property owners should provide certain protective measures. For example, security cameras, sufficient lighting, and even guards securing the premises. If the property owner fails to provide adequate security and a crime takes place, such as a shooting, they could be held liable.”

“In the event that a crime takes place on the property, the victim should inquire if there were sufficient preventative measures. If the safety measures in place are found lacking, the business owner could be deemed responsible. A foreseeable crime could also lead the property owner to be considered negligent. This could include if there were increasing crime rates in the area and no advances to security were made. In cases of property owner negligence, the victims may even be entitled to monetary compensation for damages.”
