Our Legal Take

Motel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.

  • How did the gunman gain entry to the property? What access controls and security measures, such as surveillance cameras, fencing and security patrols, were in place to protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the motel owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

(“More than a dozen people protested at the meeting. Some are owners of hotels they say would fail the city’s test.” WFYI)

Indianapolis city leaders hope “to decrease crime by flagging high-crime hotels, then giving owners a two-year period to either improve conditions or risk losing their license,” according to a WFYI report. The ordinance, which passed in March, targets hotels with a ratio of 2.5 or more emergency calls made per room.

“If this measure had been in place in 2017, 15 Indianapolis hotels likely would have been affected,” The Indianapolis Business Journal reports. “The city information shows those 15 hotels generated nearly 2,700 police and fire calls last year. Eight of those establishments generated more than 150 calls each in 2017 and another was responsible for 149. Three were the site of more than 300 calls, and police and firefighters responded to a whopping 510 calls at the Motor 8 Inn on North Shadeland Avenue. That’s 1.4 times a day.”

Guest Rights and Hotel Responsibility

By law, hotel owners have a duty to protect guests from any foreseeable harm. For example, should a hotel owner be aware of prior violence on or near their property, they have a duty to take security precautions to deter such crime in the future and to provide a safe and secure premises for their guests.

Hotel owners are encouraged to implement property security precautions and preventative measures to protect guests and reduce property violence, sexual assaults, injuries, and deaths.
