Yes, you can file lawsuit against the hotel for premise liability if the hotel failed to provide proper security. You have four years from the incident to file your civil suit.

You may try to retain a personal injury Attorney or someone who handles premises liability to assist you with the case. These are Attorneys usually handle cases on contingent fee basis. This means that you would not be charged any fees upfront for the representation and you would only be charged if the Attorney prevail. If you prevail, your Attorney will take her Attorney's fees from your winnings/settlement.

You can use the following sites to find local Attorneys:
