Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Hotel?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau is a violent crime attorney licensed in California. He has represented many shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Bobby recently shared his response to the common question, can I sue for being shot at a hotel.

"Hotel owners by law are responsible for keeping their property safe from preventable dangers. Guests expect to stay on the property without the risk of suffering preventable injuries, such as gunshot wounds. If a hotel owner falls short of implementing sufficient safety precautions, violent crimes could take place due to its negligent security. Often hotel owners could have prevented violent crimes had they not failed to fulfill this legal obligation. Preventative security measures could include patrolling security guards, surveillance cameras, and properly training staff to be aware of security risks."

"Furthermore, the hotel owner is responsible for increasing safety precautions to reflect any increase in crime on the property or area. Victims may have reasonable grounds to file a civil lawsuit against a negligent third party, such as the hotel owner, rather than the shooter if they could have prevented the crime. Victims that are desiring to recover damages should seek the counsel of an experienced violent crime attorney, as they may be entitled to compensation."
