When people are attacked in motels or hotels

In Georgia, some people have been assaulted when they are staying in motels or hotels. If you are one of them, you may believe that the establishment will be willing to step forward and agree to pay for your resulting losses, including your medical bills, lost wages and others that you incurred as a result of the attack on its property. Unfortunately, hotels and motels often try to evade their responsibilities to their guests who are assaulted during their stays.

Hotel and motel operators and owners have a duty of care that they owe to their guests to protect them from foreseeable harm. An establishment may be found to be negligent if it does such things as give out your name or room number to a person who calls, having poor lighting in areas in which criminals might hide, or having non-locking windows and doors to the rooms.

If you have been criminally assaulted in a hotel or motel as a result of the establishment's negligence, you may have the grounds to file a civil lawsuit against the hotel or motel based on a legal theory called premises liability. Since establishments often mount aggressive defenses to premises liability lawsuits, you may need to get the help of investigators and other experts to help you prove your case.

At Isenberg & Hewitt PC, our attorneys are experienced in advocating for our clients who have been attacked while staying in hotels or motels. We work to investigate our clients' situations so that we can build strong cases on their behalf. This often leads to our attorneys being able to reach settlements that fairly compensate our clients for their losses. If you have been attacked and have questions about your rights to recovery, you may want to review our hotel assaults page.
