- Aggravated assault and battery
Was There a History of Crime at the Motel or Hotel?
We frequently find that the incident was not the first to occur on the property. If the motel or hotel has experienced criminal activity like rape and sexual assault before, the property owner should have taken measures to prevent further crimes. Security personnel should have been hired or increased. Stronger locks should have been placed on doors and windows. Parking lots should have been better lit. Video surveillance should have been installed. When this does not happen, the property owner can be held responsible.
Who Was to Blame?
Motel and hotel negligent security claims can become very complex. We may file suit against multiple parties, including the property owner and also a security firm.
If these cases go to court, there is an additional layer of complexity because of a law requiring the jury to divide fault amongst everyone involved, including the person who committed the crime. We must take great care to convince the jury that the property owner and other parties were at least partially at fault in order to get compensation for the victim. We know how to build cases that get justice for those hurt by criminals and negligent property owners.
