Motel Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Atlanta Super 8 Motel Robbery, Assault

Local News

A woman was reportedly robbed and beaten in a “Super 8 Motel room on Jonesboro Road” in Atlanta Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

Fox 54 News reports, “two males knocked on the door of hotel room and forced their way into the room….The suspects pistol-whipped [the victim] in the face and head, and stole approximately $200 and a cell phone.”

The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. Police are still searching for the suspects.

Our Legal Take

Motel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on property. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to residents and guests of the Super 8 motel, and whether this horrific assault may have been prevented.

    How did the suspects gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as security fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to protect guests at the time of the break-in?

  • Recent crime reports reveal a number of local thefts, robberies and burglaries in the area. Were any additional security precautions implemented by the owner and management to deter such crime?

By law, motel owners are required to protect all guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.  Should the facts of this matter reveal that the motel owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the victim may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for her injuries.

Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases in the State of Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the motel and property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
