Representing Victims of Rape and Sexual Assault in Hotel Rooms – Who can be held Responsible?

An owner of a property including hotel and motel owners can be held liable for injuries suffered by a trespasser, or invitee to the property who engages in violent crime against innocent victims.  The liability can be extended to property owners, managers of the property, and hotel staff who were negligent in their responsibilities. Hotel owner liability for violent crimes is based on California’s Premises Liability Laws which prove different levels of care based on the status of the victim.

Invitee:  An invitee is owed the highest duty of care.  They are any individual who is either expressly or impliedly invited to another person’s premises for their mutual benefit. Licensee: Any individual who enters the premises at the owner or possessors consent for a non business or commercial purpose.  The most common example is a social guest.  In order to recover as a licensee, a victim must establish (all three):

  1. The owner or possessor knew or should have known of the dangerous condition, and should have known that it created an unreasonable risk of harm, and likewise should have known that the plaintiff would fail to discover the dangerous condition
  2. The owner or possessor did not make the condition safe or failed to warn the licensee of the condition
  3. The licensee did not know of the dangerous condition or the risks involved.
Trespassers: Unlike an invitee or licensee, a trespasser enters premises without the property owner or possessor’s consent.  Generally, no duty is owed to a trespasser.  However, in situations where the possessor knows of potential trespassers,  he or she must give reasonable warning for dangerous conditions, but only for artificial conditions, and only if the condition is not obvious
