Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents victims of violent crimes in private civil lawsuits. Kevin works to help victims file lawsuits against negligent businesses for shootings. Below he details when victims can sue for being shot at a hotel

"By law, hotel owners have a responsibility to provide reasonable protection for guests and staff. To maintain a sufficient level of safety for their guests, hotel owners might equip their property with security cameras, ample lighting, upgraded room key cards, and patrolling security guards. When a hotel owner neglects their property's safety, and someone is shot, they could be held liable."

"Victims of hotel shootings have the right to inquire if the security measures were sufficient or neglected during the time of the crime. If minimal safety measures were in place but had a history of violent crime, the hotel owner could be considered negligent. When a crime is foreseeable, and the property owner is deemed negligent, the victim may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit. Victims and their families are encouraged to seek the counsel of an experienced violent crimes attorney to help them get the monetary compensation they deserve."
