Our Personal Injury Law Firm Explores Casino and Resort Liability
Late in the evening of October 1, 2017, the most devastating mass shooting in United States history took place in Las Vegas. The shooting, which occurred during the Route 91 Harvest music festival, has claimed the lives of at least 59, while over 500 others sustained injuries. The gunmanfired from a hotel room in the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Later, law enforcement found at least 23 firearms in his room, including multiple high-powered rifles. As the city and the nation struggle to recover from the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting, thousands of people and families are still left with questions about how this tragedy happened and who is to blame.
The attorneys at Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C. are currently investigating the events surrounding this shooting. In particular, we are investigating possible parties, including the casino and its parent company, who may be liable for these injuries and deaths. Founding attorney Mary Alexander is a leading expert in helping individuals and families through large-scale tragedies like this. She is currently representing victims of the Ghost Ship warehouse fire in Oakland, California.
What Are My Legal Options After the Las Vegas Tragedy?
According to the most recent reports, the gunman was pronounced dead at the scene when law enforcement entered his room. However, this does not necessarily mean that injury victims and families who lost loved ones have no legal recourse. The question still remains: how did a guest manage to bring so many firearms into a hotel room without anyone noticing?
Attorney Mary Alexander is currently investigating the potential liability of the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort as well as its parent company, MGM Grand. Hotels and casinos may be liable for the actions of guests, in certain circumstances, especially if the guest causes injury. Additionally, these facilities must generally have adequate security procedures in place to protect foreseeable victims.
