Did negligent security contribute to this Ventura motel sexual assault and are justice and compensation available to the survivor?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a woman was reportedly sexually assaulted while sleeping in her room “at the Ventura Beach House Motel on 1220 E. Thompson Blvd.” Friday morning, December 7, 2018, according to KTLA 5.

Police told The Citizens Journal, a man “forced his way into the victim’s motel room and assaulted her while she was sleeping.” A suspect has since been arrested and charged with “forcible rape and burglary.”

 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 at the motel and whether this unconscionable assault may have been prevented.

  • How did the assailant gain entry to the motel?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, guest screening, fencing, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, dead bolts, and visible security patrols, were in place to protect guests and deter crime at the time of the assault?

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 property manager failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the survivor may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and suffering.

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.

HotelOpenDoor-300x211Hotels and apartments are frequently targets for criminal activity. Guests and tenants have little control over, or knowledge of, those entering and exiting the property, making it difficult to identify a person who does not belong. This is particularly dangerous in isolated common areas, such as a parking lots, laundry rooms, and swimming pools. Hotel and apartment complex grounds are frequently landscaped with trees and bushes, providing ample hiding spaces for criminals, especially at night.

Hotel and apartment owners have a responsibility to deter such crime and protect guests from foreseeable harm. Proactive security measures, such as guarded entry, fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and access-controlled common areas, help to reduce risk of violence.

Local law enforcement often provides crime prevention training programs for apartment and hotel owners, managers and security staff.  The Reno Police Department describes their Crime Free Multi-Housing & Hotel initiative as “a state-of-the-art crime prevention program designed to reduce crime upon properties. This program was successfully founded by Tim Zhering of the Mesa Arizona Police Department in 1992. The program has spread to nearly 2,000 cities in 48 U.S. States, 5 Canadian Provinces, England, Nigeria, and Puerto Rico.”

Property owners and managers are encouraged to implement security precautions and training programs, such as the one described above, to protect guests and deter crime.

Guest Rights and Property Owner Responsibility

Hotel guests and apartment tenants have a right to be safe and secure while on property. By law, hotel and apartment owners have a duty to protect those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should a property owner or manager fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or deaths which occur as a consequence.
