Liability In Hotel and Casino Stabbings
All companies have a legal responsibility to take measures to keep their guests safe. According to California Code of Civil Procedure 1714, Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person, except so far as the latter has, willfully or by want of ordinary care, brought the injury upon himself or herself.”
This includes taking measures to protect guests from violence. There are a number of measures that businesses can implement to help keep guests safe including:
- Installing cameras
- Keeping parking lots well light
- Hiring armed security guards
- Patrolling parking lots
The level of security necessary for a business will depend on a variety of factors including previous incidents. A bingo hall filled with senior citizens may not need any security. A bar in a high crime area may need heavy security. Any person that is injured in a stabbing at the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim may include compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A premises liability attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
