Legal Representation For Victims of Mass Shootings

If there is one topic that is at the forefront of the national conversation it would be mass shootings. Unfortunately, our children are bearing witness to this fact as the greatest number of these shooting are taking place in our schools across the nation. Only 20 weeks into 2018, the United States has seen 22 school shootings where someone was either hurt or killed. The question is not “if” it will happen again, it is “when” will it happen again.

Following an active shooter or mass shooting, you may be left with hospital expenses, physical therapy, funeral expenses, therapy bills, medical bills, in addition to being devastated and suffering from the senseless loss of a family member. Fortunately, there is something that can be done, and that is to hold the parties responsible that could have possibly prevented the tragedy from taking place. A civil mass shooting lawsuit may answer lingering questions about individuals and corporations who may have been able to prevent a horrible mass shooting.

If you lost a loved one to a mass shooting, contact the team of dedicated attorneys at Jones Brown PLLC to inquire about a mass shooting lawsuit. We will fight for you and your loved ones.

We are helping victims and their families pursue justice by holding Mandalay Bay, Live Nation, and MGM accountable for being negligent to clear warning signs, failing to follow proper protocol, and for a lack of security that allowed Paddock to carry out the mass shooting.

Pulse Nightclub Shooting

  • In June 2016, an ISIS-inspired shooting occurred at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida when 29-year-old Omar Mateen killed 49 people, injuring 58 in a devastating hate crime. Mateen was killed by the Orlando Police Department officers after a 3-hour standoff. We’re helping survivors and family members of the deceased pursue justice and obtain compensation, going after Google, Twitter, and Facebook. Allegedly, these defendants knowingly allowed ISIS to use these online and social platforms to recruit while raising funds and spreading propaganda used to help carry out the attack, allowing ISIS to acquire 30,000 recruits and funds. If you or a loved one were injured or killed in the Pulse Nightclub shooting, call us today. You pay nothing unless we recover compensation for you.
