As the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting and their loved ones struggle to recover from their horrific tragedy they are seeking answers to many questions, including how such an unimaginable crime occurred and what their legal options might be.

The authorities are still in the initial stages of their investigation into how a gunman was able to smuggle an arsenal of weapons into his 32nd floor room in the Mandalay Bay hotel and spray bursts of gunfire into a country music festival jammed with thousands of concertgoers.

It may never be determined what was in the mind of Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old professional gambler and caused him to pump thousands of rounds into the crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival Oct. 1, 2016 a few hundred yards away.

But as the police continue to piece together what has become a constantly changing chain-of-events timeline we do know this:

  • At least 58 people have died of injuries suffered in the shooting and nearly 600 are recovering from wounds. Many more suffered severe mental trauma or other injuries.
  • Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo in a media interview said “There’s more than 20,000 moving parts associated with this investigation and it takes time,” as he asked the public to have patience with local, state and federal authorities involved in the case.
  • Paddock somehow managed to evade detection as he smuggled 23 weapons, including 12 firearms with bump stocks – accessories that enable rifles to be fired more rapidly – into his room.

In the meantime, the victims and their families may be facing huge costs for funerals, medical expenses, rehabilitation and mental health therapy and wondering whether they have legal options.

Those who were victims in this, one of the country’s worst mass shootings, or have loved ones affected may have a claim. For more information about a possible claim please do not hesitate to contact http://injuryhelpdesk.com/las-vegas-concert-injury/ or email The Shapiro Legal Group – firm@shapirolegalgroup.com or call 1-800-225-8944.

The Shapiro Legal Group specializes in complex personal injury litigation and trial of cases involving multiple victims. In conjunction with its Co-Counsel for the Las Vegas shooting tragedy it has litigated many cases against corporate defendants.

Whatever your state of residence, those who attended Route 91 and believe they have a case should call us for a free consultation for guidance in the process of selecting your legal representation.

Some lawsuits are being filed over claims stemming from the Las Vegas shootings despite the fact that there is extensive investigation that is still ongoing and more will be undertaken to assure that all possible theories of liability and defendants are identified before filing suit. Our firms investigate all cases thoroughly and completely before filing a lawsuit so as to assure the best chance for a successful outcome.

In one lawsuit filed in connection with the shooting,  a college student wounded while attending the concert is seeking damages from the Mandalay Bay hotel, the concert promoter,  the manufacturer of one of the  bump stocks used by Stephen Paddock and Paddock’s estate. (Gasper vs MGM et all, A-17-762858, District Court, Clark County, Nevada)

The lawsuit claims the student was wounded by a bullet her lawyers believe was fired from one of Paddock’s guns.

The student’s lawyers claim MGM Resorts International, the owner or manager of the Mandalay Bay and subsidiary Mandalay Corp., and unknown John Doe employees or agents contributed to circumstances that enabled Paddock to “commit a mass shooting unencumbered,” according to details in the filing

In another legal action, three people who witnessed the mass shooting  have filed a lawsuit against the makers and sellers of the bump stocks and are asking to have their case declared a class action. (Prescott vs Slide Fire Solutions, A-17-762709, District Court, Clark County, Nevada)

The plaintiffs in their lawsuit allege that Slide Fire Solutions sold the devices to help people with limited hand mobility but extended its marketing beyond this group of consumers.

ABC News also outlined questions raised in the shootings in a recent article pointing out some contradictions that have surfaced. Here is part of the ABC report:

The first reports from hotel employees that there was a shooter in the Mandalay Bay hotel were not relayed to Las Vegas police until after the gunman had already begun the deadly rampage that killed 58 people across the street, according to a person who has reviewed the records and spoke to ABC News on the condition of confidentiality.

Stephen Paddock opened fire on a security guard, Jesus Campos, and a maintenance man, Stephen Schuck, down the hallway of the 32nd floor before he turned his attention to the concertgoers below. Both men called their supervisors, but neither the police account of the ensuing moments nor publicly transmitted police radio traffic indicate when the hotel security office dialed 911.

According to the latest police timeline, Campos was shot about six minutes before the rampage began. Hotel officials released a statement saying that timeline “may not be accurate.” Police say the current timeline will be revised again by Friday.

Many more lawsuits are expected to be filed in connection with this terrible mass shooting.
