Mandalay Bay Shooting Lawsuits
Las Vegas Personal Injury Attorneys – 888.662.2013
On the night of October 1st, 2017, Stephen Paddock used several modified rifles to fire into a crowd
of some 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest music festival in
Las Vegas. From his 32nd floor Mandalay Bay suite across the street, he ultimately killed 58 and
injured 500+ others, many grievously. Surviving victims of the shooting
and the family members of the fallen are now filing claims and lawsuits
against Stephen Paddock’s estate, as well as a few other parties
that could be found partially liable.

Parties Who May Be Liable for Your Injuries
Unfortunately, after many mass shootings, there is little to be done to
compensate the injured and the families of the fallen. Trying to sue the
estate of a gunman or terrorist often reveals that the finances there
are minimal or nonexistent. The Mandalay Bay shooting is slightly different,
as it does appear there could be multiple parties who could be liable
for the damages, including Paddock’s estate.
Our Las Vegas shooting victim attorneys can investigate your claim, discovering
what liable parties you can file against, such as:
Paddock’s estate: Preliminary reports claim that Stephen Paddock’s estate is quite
sizeable due to numerous investments in real estate across Nevada and
Las Vegas Review-Journal also claims that his brother said the estate would be used to benefit
the victims of the shooting. If true, this defendant could provide the
majority of compensation.
MGM Resorts: Several victims of the Mandalay Bay shooting have targeted MGM Resorts,
the parent company of Mandalay Bay, in lawsuits for
negligent security and inadequate staff training. The claims state that hotel staff reasonably
should have noticed that Paddock was creating an arms stockpile in his
room and intervened.
Live Nation Entertainment, Inc.: The organization that put together the music festival has been named as
a defendant in many lawsuits for failing to provide adequate emergency
exits and guidance during the shooting. Due to the layout of the event
and the sheer number of people permitted to attend, some were trampled
during the panic and many more could not find a quick escape, which may
have been prevented with better event planning.
Slide Fire Solutions: Paddock modified his semiautomatic rifles into fully automatic rifles,
which are subject to strict state and federal regulations, by using a
“bump stock” manufactured by Slide Fire Solutions. Complaints
have been filed against the gun part manufacturer for allegedly mislabeling
the bump stock as a device to help people with limited hand use operate
a firearm when it was actually created to turn a rifle into a machine gun.
There have already been class actions filed against some of these liable
parties. If a class action or mass tort is the better option for you in
pursuit of fair and maximized compensation, then we would be happy to
sit down with you and explain how we can be of service in this regard as well.
