Las Vegas shooting victim sues hotel

Of course when there is a tragedy especially in the USA a portion of blame will be thrust upon someone. If there is blame then there is a claim. Despite all the loss and suffering of hundreds of people lets think about the money. Is it the regular American person on the street that creates an angle to be able to sue an organisation to make mega bucks or is it the lawery’s & attorney’s contacting the victims ?  Well the scale of the greed should not surprise anyone anymore


Paige Gasper, 21, said in the lawsuit that the defendants’ negligence led to the life-threatening injuries she suffered when a bullet shattered her ribs and lacerated her liver. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday in Clark County, Nevada.

Stephen Paddock, the 64-year-old gunman, fired into the festival crowd from a 32nd-floor hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel on Oct. 1, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. Paddock killed himself before the police stormed his suite.


Victor Schwartz, an attorney specializing in injury cases, said that in order to hold MGM liable, victims would have to show the company could have foreseen the shooting and taken steps to prevent it.


Gasper’s lawsuit says MGM Resorts International and its subsidiary Mandalay Corp. [MGGMR.UL], which own the hotel, failed to properly monitor Paddock’s activities and responded too late to the shooting of a hotel security officer. Paddock fired at the security officer six minutes before opening fire on the crowd below.

Gasper’s lawsuit also accused Slide Fire Solutions, the maker of bump stock devices that were used by the gunman, of negligence, design and manufacturing defects. The devices are legal and allow semiautomatic rifles to operate as if they were fully automatic machine guns, which are heavily restricted in the United States.
