Alaska Premises Liability Lawyer Helps Injured Guests

Rob Rosenthal:

Can a hotel be held responsible if a guest is hurt or assaulted while on their property? We ask Alaska lawyer Mark Choate for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Mark Choate:

They're responsible to have safe premises, and so if a guest, let's say the door locks are not good or the security fails to allow someone to be able to gain access into someone's room, you can have a liability against the hotel. If there are dangerous conditions in the hotel, which include everything from maybe windows that don't meet code and someone falls out, or a dangerous pool that is not marked properly, or a restaurant that provides bad food that causes food poisoning or injury. Hotels can all be held responsible for things like that when they injure guests.
