Can I File a Lawsuit For Being Shot at a Hotel?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works with victims of gun violence. Recently Marc has provided some key elements required to file a lawsuit after a violent crime. His commentary sheds some light on the common questions victims have, "Can I sue for being shot at a hotel?"

"First, all property owners, including hotel owners, are obligated by law to provide safety for their guests and staff. Hotel owners typically offer security measures such as video surveillance, sufficient parking lot lighting at night, upgraded key locks, but others may be necessary. These measures are critical to reducing the risk of preventable crimes. If a shooting occurs on the property, the owner may be held accountable if they did not take proper precaution to implement its property security."

"A gun violence victim attorney must also show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable or preventable. If they can prove the hotel owner knew about the increasing crime in the area but neglected to upgrade security, victims and their families may have grounds for a valid civil lawsuit. Hiring an experienced gun violence victim attorney is encouraged as the victim may be entitled to financial compensation."
