Did negligent security contribute to this motel shooting and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

LOCAL NEWS

A man was shot at a Santa Fe, New Mexico motel Thursday afternoon, March 21, 2019.  According to SantaFeNewMexican.com,  “a man was hospitalized Thursday after he was shot during a suspected armed robbery at a Cerrillos Road motel…[t]he shooting was reported about 4:20 p.m. at the Motel 6 at 3007 Cerrillos Road.”  When officers arrived they “found a man in his 30s with multiple gunshot wounds.”

According to the SantaFeNewMexican.com news story, there have been other violent incidents at this motel. “In June, a man was beaten in the motel’s back parking lot by a group of men demanding drugs…[i]n 2016, a Santa Fe police officer fatally shot a robbery suspect in the motel’s parking lot.” 

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Hotel and 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 hotel and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • Was the suspect a guest staying at the hotel?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries. 

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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
