1 October/Route 91 Harvest Music Festival
On October 1, 2017, the worst mass shooting by an individual in the United States occurred when the shooter opened fire on concert attendees at the Route 91 Harvest Festival. The perpetrator filed hundreds of bullets from the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay, which is owned and operated by MGM Resorts. MGM also owns the festival grounds at Las Vegas Village where the tragedy occurred.
If you or a loved one suffered harm in this senseless and deadly mass shooting, a Las Vegas mass shooting attorney at Lee Murphy Law Firm is ready to discuss your claim and right to compensation. As a nationally recognized personal injury law firm, we stand up for the rights of clients and fight to recover compensation on their behalf.
Lawsuits naming Mandalay Bay and, more broadly, MGM Resorts as legally responsible parties are on file. The civil lawsuits filed against Mandalay Bay, MGM and Live Nation (the concert’s promoter) focus on the many security issues that factored into the attack. Incredibly, MGM Resorts sued more than 1,900 victims and surviving loved ones of the attack in an attempt to escape legal liability.
Those lawsuits remain ongoing, as do the lawsuits filed on behalf of the mass shooting victims (though all litigation is currently stayed pending mediation).
