Did negligent security contribute to this casino hotel stabbing and are justice and compensation available to Emanuel Burgarino family?

LOCAL NEWS

A man was stabbed at a Joliet, Illinois casino hotel Sunday night, March 24, 2019.  According to Patch.com, “[a] 76-year-old Wisconsin senior citizen suffered 26 stab wounds as he was slain in a fifth floor hallway of [a]…Casino…on Sunday night…[t]he downtown Joliet casino murder occurred around 10 p.m.”  The news story reports that “Burgarino suffered a total of 26 stab wounds, mainly to his neck and chest…[h]e was pronounced dead at the St. Joe’s hospital emergency room.”  A suspect has been arrested and according to testimony heard at a court hearing, Patch.com reports, “at least one…Casino…guest on Sunday night noticed [the suspect] hanging around the Harrah’s hotel lobby area and [the suspect] tried to follow the guest on an elevator in hopes of getting onto one of the hotel’s floors.”

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 the 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 Emanuel Burgarino at the time of the incident?

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, Mr. Burgarino’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. 

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