Hotel Rape or Attack Lawsuits

When guests pay to stay at a hotel, they expect to receive safe and secure accommodations, both in their rooms and throughout the facility. Hotel owners and management have a responsibility to maintain reasonable safety for their clients, including protecting them from criminal activities. When a rape or physical attack occurs at a resort, hotel or motel, and could have been prevented with better security or protection for the customer, the hotel may be liable for the injuries.

Premises liability lawsuits cover most types of injuries and accidents that can happen on business property. Slips, falls, broken furniture and other preventable maintenance issues that can cause injury are all covered under premises liability. While criminal behavior is not always preventable, businesses do have a responsibility to put safeguards in place to deter criminal behavior. Security cameras, restricted entrances, locks, lighting and other security measures should be in place to improve safety for all guests.

Third-Party Foreseeable Crime Liability

Even with excellent security, criminal acts can occur at hotels and resorts. When looking at a third-party liability for a crime committed at a hotel, the key element is whether the crime was foreseeable and therefore, preventable. This includes several factors, including known crime in the neighborhood, previous criminal activity at the establishment, security measures and problems with employees. If similar crimes have occurred before, there is poor security or the hotel hires employees with a history of violent or criminal behavior, they could be liable for not doing more to protect their customers.

If you have suffered an attack or rape while staying at a hotel or resort, you deserve to receive the care you need for your injuries and emotional health. Contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP to discuss your case. You may be eligible to file a third-party liability claim against the hotel for lack of safety and security.

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
