On October 1, 2017 shortly after 10:00 P.M., a gunman who has since been identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of nearly 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival. His rampage injured 500 people and fatally wounded 59 more. Swat Team first responders later discovered that Paddock wreaked all of this havoc from the window of his room on the 32nd floor of the nearby Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino after having carried more than a dozen long-range firearms up to his suite. —
Each time a tragedy of this magnitude occurs, what victims, their families, and the public at large want most is answers to their most critical questions. Personal injury attorney Paul Padda believes that impending lawsuits could bring them the answers they need.
"The litigation process is the perfect environment for questions, investigation, and - eventually - answers. With so much information swirling around from the media and other sources, it may be that a lawsuit will be the only way for victims and their families to get the information and the closure they're looking for," said Paul Padda, the experienced personal injury lawyer at the helm of Las Vegas-based Paul Padda Law.
Attorney Padda acknowledges that, while lawsuits can be beneficial for bringing critical information to light, litigation in cases like this isn't a cakewalk by any means. Victims will carry the burden of proof on their shoulders as they seek to show that the incident was indeed foreseeable. The Nevada mass shooting lawyer points out that family attorneys will most likely argue that the increase in mass shootings in America should have led to better awareness of the gunman's actions prior to the shooting and a heightened level of security at and around the festival.
Padda went on to say, "At the end of the day, people want to know how Stephen Paddock was able to pull off something so horrific without anyone being aware or even the least bit suspicious of his actions. It is our hope that in the midst of the immense grief these victims and their families are facing, hope and answers will emerge through the litigation process."
