On occasion, while traveling, people are unfortunately assaulted or otherwise injured by a guest or visitor of the hotel/motel/resort at which they are staying. As can be imagined, the scenarios in which assaults can occur are endless but, by way of example, they can occur in guest rooms as the result of faulty locks, in a common area due to a disorderly guest, or in a parking ramp as the result of lax security. The list goes on and on.
In some instances, the hotel management knew, or should have known, of this risk to its guest. And, if they knew, steps should have been taken to protect people from this type of risk. If appropriate measures were not taken then the hotel owner and/or operator may be held liable for these types of injuries. If you find yourself the victim of a crime while staying at a hotel/motel/resort, it is important that you contact attorney Christopher Johnston as soon as possible to help ensure the preservation and protection of evidence so your claim can be handled as effectively as possible.
