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

Responsibility of the Hotel and Motel Owners to Keep Guests Safe

It is the responsibility of the hotel or motel owners to keep the guests safe at the premises during their stay at the hotel. The hotel staff security, management, maintenance and front desk as well as the hotel or motel owner are responsible to keep the guests safe and secure at all times at the hotel or motel establishments. The hotel or motel owners need to be aware of their liability to manage security at the hotel or motel owners for every hour that the guests are on the property.

The hotel or motel owners need to understand the necessity to manage physical security, surveillance, movement control of the guests and strangers on the property, movement of any vendors on the property, management of the hotel or motel maintenance, and the safe securing of all public spaces for the guests frequenting the hotel or motel.

Sexual Assault Is a Horrific Crime

In general, sexual assault is an under reported crime. Many people suffer sexual assaults and blame themselves for the violent attacks, when they had nothing to do with it. The overwhelming victims of sexual assault are women, and some cases occur at hotels and motels where women are walking in, out and around the rooms as guests on the property at the establishment.

Hotel and Motel Property Owners Must Prevent Crimes at the Hotel

The hotel or motel owners are responsible to manage the safety of the guests at the venue at all times. That means that the managers and owners of the hotel or motel need to ensure that the lighting around the hotel or motel is bright, well lit and regularly maintained if any lights are damaged. There should be no dimly lit areas, where a stranger can accost a hotel or motel guest in the parking lot or areas around the hotel or motel in the dark.

Hotel Owner and Manager Must Prevent Trespassers Out of the Hotel

As the manager or owner of a motel or hotel, that individual or company is responsible to keep out trespassers from entering the hotel establishment. This will include the necessity of providing security lights, security detail or even a security guard if necessary. If any of the guests are injured, it is the responsibility of the owners and managers to keep everyone safe at all times, at the hotel or motel.

Hotel Owner Liability for Violent Crimes Per California’s Premises Liability Laws

California’s Premises Liability laws state that there is a different level of care based on the status of the victim when injuries are suffered by someone at a hotel. The owner of a property of a motel or hotel can be held liability for injuries to guests suffered by a trespasser onto the property who engage in violent crimes against the guests.

Victims of sexual assault and battery at a hotel or motel have rights against being attacked in or around their room during their stay at the hotel or motel. The hotel or motel staff need to take every precaution to prevent the sexual assault or attack of any kind taking place on the patron guests to the hotel or motel. This responsibility is extended to any nightclub, bar or tavern that is attached or also owned by the hotel or motel, if there is an attack on a guest in that outbuilding area as well.

Hotel and Motel Sexual Assault Injury Lawyer Is a Necessity in this Case

People who stay in a hotel or motel do not expect to be sexually assaulted during their stay as a guest at that establishment. People who are injured in a sexual assault at a hotel or motel can experience a violent encounter with a stranger who sexually assaults them when they are unawares.
