Sexual Assault in Hotels

Hotel Sexual Assault Attorney

hotel key in a lock | Hotel Sexual Assault AttorneyNearly every person in the United States will, at some point in their life, stay at a hotel or motel. Anytime a road trip is on the horizon, travelers—at least those without an RV—will stop to rest for the night at a hotel or motel. Unfortunately, hotels and motels both can lack the security needed to protect travelers from being assaulted or attacked. When this occurs, it’s important to contact an experienced hotel sexual assault attorney as soon as possible to find out what your legal options are.

Hotels are generally a step up, both in accommodations and amenities as well as price—from motels. Motels tend to be geared toward a one-night stay, and are typically off the beaten path and directly accessible from the motel parking lot. Many motels stay open around the clock, therefore even a gated parking lot could conceivably be open all night long. Hotels appear to offer a higher level of safety because of a few factors: their rooms are rarely accessible from the street, visitors must check in at the reception desk and it is more likely there will be multiple staff members and possibly even security guards.

Despite the appearance of safety, in both hotels and motels, the employees have access to all rooms. The question then becomes, how well do hotels and motels vet their employees? A woman who was in Las Vegas for business was raped by an employee she shared the elevator with on the way up to her room. Although this particular employee had a clean background check, he had been disciplined for sexual harassment of a co-worker, but the hotel did not place him under any level of supervision and he had unfettered access to guest rooms.

According to Bureau of Justice statistics the average number of violent victimizations between 2004 and 2008 was 5,507,130 per year. About 7,840 of these occur each year in a hotel or motel room.  Motels and hotels have a responsibility to keep their guests safe and secure, and must correct any existing hazard—or warn guests about the hazard before they check in.

While the employees who work at a hotel have the most access to the guests, other guests can also occasionally be the instigator of a sexual assault. If there is an obviously intoxicated, unruly or disorderly guest, and the hotel staff is aware of the guest, they must ensure that person causes no harm to the other hotel guests. Those who have been victims of sexual assault in a hotel must immediately contact law enforcement, the hotel staff, and an experienced Colorado personal injury attorney in order to protect their rights and future.

The Gold Law Firm and Greg took on my unique case when no one else would. They were amazing through the whole process. Making sure we clearly understood everything. Always taking extra time to answer all our questions. In the end we got justice! I just learned that now they have a special victims unit, and it warms my heart to know that someone is there for those unique victims.

Janet Christensen -

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
