Hotel Sexual Assault Lawyer
When you are at a hotel or motel, either as a guest or employee, that establishment owes you a duty of care. It is their responsibility to keep customers and staff safe from harm. Despite this, thousands of individuals every year suffer from acts of sexual assault in hotels, motels and resorts nationwide.
While Chicago has begun taking steps to make hotels safer and more responsive to concerns over sexual harassment, it remains a serious epidemic.
If you have been a victim of sexual violence, you have a right to seek not only criminal charges against perpetrators, but also civil claims for monetary compensation against liable parties.
When Should You Talk to a Lawyer?
In order to pursue a negligence-based suit against the hotel or motel, it is necessary to prove that i) the establishment owed a duty of care to you, ii) that the establishment breached the duty, and iii) that the breach of the duty was a cause of the incident which took place. Proving this can be difficult for an individual without an experienced attorney, and we recommend enlisting the services of a qualified attorney who has experience in these cases.
