PREMISES LIABILITY CLAIMS AT HOTELS
Companies have a responsibility to maintain a reasonably safe environment for the guest that come to visit. The level of security that a property owner must provide will vary depending on a number of factors. For example, buildings that are in a high crime area or that have a history of violence will tend to warrant increased security measures. No property owner can perfectly protect their guests from all assaults. However, security guards, cameras and lights can all help prevent crime. When a hotel chain fails to take adequate measures to help keep their guests safe, they may face civil liability. Any victim or their family may be able to file a premises liability claim for damages.
