A Suwanee extended stay hotel is attempting to curb crime “by installing automatic license plate readers,” according to a recent CBS 46 report. The “InTown Suites off of Celebration Drive” has an apparent history of “criminal activity.” CBS 46 reports, the hotel is now one of ten InTown Suites properties to implement tag readers, which “recognize the license plate of every vehicle that drives by day or night….Police are then able to run the plate numbers for infractions, catching everything from people with warrants to violent criminals.”
According to The AJC, Norcross officials passed an extended stay ordinance in 2017, “targeted directly at preventing crime.” The regulations “include requirements for…functional video surveillance systems, adequate lighting and stricter vehicle rules.” The ordinance also requires Norcross hotels “collect more detailed identification information from renters.”
Victims of Hotel Violent Crime: Know Your Rights
Hotel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, Georgia hotel owners are required to protect all guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should a hotel owner or property manager fail in this critical duty, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries, rapes or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.

Choosing the Right Attorney
Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.
Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!
You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:
– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.
If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.”
