Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed at a Hotel

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced violent crime attorney who represents victims of stabbings and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Michael has provided insight into the legal options of victims stabbed at a hotel.

"Owners of hotels have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for everyone on and around their property. To uphold the safety of those on the property, the owners should implement security measures such as strong lighting and surveillance cameras. If a hotel fails to provide sufficient security and a patron is harmed on their property, the owner of the property may be found negligent and could be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"When a victim suffers from a violent crime, such as a stab wound, while on hotel property, they are encouraged to question if the hotel provided enough safety to ensure the environment was safe to the best of their ability. Hotel property owners can be found liable for a violent crime if the crime committed on the property was reasonably foreseeable. One example of a reasonably foreseeable crime would include if crime rates in the area increased, but the property owner did not provide an increase to the security measures. In such negligence cases, both victims and their families should know they could have grounds for a civil lawsuit and may even be entitled to compensation. At this time, they are encouraged to seek the advice of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
