Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Hotel

Attorney contributor, Marc Lenahan, is an experienced violent crime attorney licensed in the state of Texas. He has years of experience representing victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. Below, Michael has provided some insight on the legal options of victims stabbed at a hotel.

"Hotel owners, similar to commercial property owners, have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for guests and staff on their property. In order to uphold safety, property owners should implement security measures, including strong lighting and security cameras. If a hotel fails to provide an adequate level of security and a guest or staff member is harmed on their property, the owner could be considered negligent and even liable in a civil lawsuit."

"If a victim is stabbed on hotel property, the victim or their family should inquire if the hotel had an adequate level of safety measures in place to ensure the environment was safe to the best of their ability. Hotel property owners can be held responsible for violent crimes if the crimes were found to be foreseeable. One example of a foreseeable crime could include if the area's crime rates increased, but the property owner did not implement additional security measures. In negligence cases such as these, victims and their families should be aware that they may have sufficient reason to pursue a civil lawsuit and possibly even receive compensation for damages. They are encouraged to seek the guidance of an experienced violent crimes attorney."
