Warehouse and Party Shooting Lawyer Los Angeles

Incidences of mass shootings have risen to epidemic proportions. In 2021, a gunman opened fire at a FedEx warehouse in Indiana, killing eight people before turning the gun on himself. The same year, a shooter targeted an outdoor birthday party, leaving two people dead and 12 injured in southern New Jersey.
According to data from the Gun Violence Archive (GVA), there's been an average of 13 mass shootings each week over 200 days into 2022. Survivors are often left wondering what to do following a mass shooting. Working with a mass shooting lawyer to pursue a personal injury claim can alleviate tremendous financial burdens.

How Can a Mass Shooting Lawyer in Los Angeles Help?

Even if you escape unscathed, surviving a shooting incident can be a traumatizing and life-altering experience. It’s advisable for mass shooting victims who have suffered grievous injuries or lost a loved one to schedule a consultation with an experienced and highly skilled mass shooting lawyer. A seasoned lawyer can fight for your rights and ensure you secure the compensation you deserve to cover steep medical expenses, lost wages, and prolonged recovery.

Families of victims who succumb to their fatal injuries are left struggling with the incredible grief of losing someone in such a horrific manner. Financial repercussions also follow a mass shooting. For example, families are left with medical and burial costs. If such is the case, families of deceased shooting victims may be able to pursue legal action for the shooting against a named negligent third party in the lawsuit.

Who is a Negligent Third-Party in a Mass Shooting Case?

Often, there’s a negligent third-party named in addition to or instead of the person or persons who committed the actual shooting. Case in point; a warehouse property or club owner might be guilty if they were negligent in their duty of care to the shooting victim(s). Preventive measures exist that a property owner should establish to ensure proper security on their premises.

These include a security system, guards, metal detectors, and emergency exits to escape in case of shootings. They ensure visitors to the property are protected from harm. Concert organizers or bar owners, public event spaces, parking lots, and apartments could also be held responsible if there was an indication potential shooting may take place. The question would be; have there been recent shootings or violent crimes around the area? If yes, what precautions did the owner take to prevent a shooting incident from occurring again?

Steps to Take if Injured in a Mass Shooting Incident

Historically, insurers who approve firearm risks have relied on their infrequency and favorable liability laws to ‘selectively’ exclude gun-related injuries when assessing such risks. Incidents of mass shootings in the U.S. are not rare occurrences today. They happen anywhere, any place, and at any time. Workplaces, whether in malls, factories, hospitals, schools, and office facilities, have become targets of deranged and senseless gun attacks.

When it comes to mass shootings, putting a number on potential gun violence exposure can prove challenging. However, with the rising incidents of mass shootings and the liability claims they’ve spawned, gun-related risks have taken on greater importance that insurance companies can’t ignore. You might have unique compensation opportunities if you sustained your shooting-related injuries while on the job (warehouse) or at a party.

  • Report your injuries and have a formal incident report drawn up.
  • Stay away from the media. Claims adjusters and the attorneys representing the at-fault defendant will look for reasons to undermine the credibility of your lawsuit.
  • If your shooting-related injuries were sustained at work, you should act quickly to preserve your legal options. While you may be eligible, workers’ compensation is notoriously time-sensitive, and any delay in intervening may hinder you from seeking damages.
  • Consult a personal injury lawyer with experience handling mass shooting cases to recover the compensation you deserve.

Hire a trusted lawyer if you’re a mass shooting victim. It increases your chances of being compensated for future medical bills, missed earning capacity, wrongful death, and more.

Litigation over Mass Shooting

No matter where a mass shooting occurs, it causes wide-ranging damages, losses, and expenses for victims, not forgetting the impacted businesses. Liability in a mass shooting event may include owners/operators of businesses premises where the shooting occurred, security firms, or events promoters. If a firearm was illegally acquired, a lawsuit could be filed against the individual or gun shop where the attacker bought the weapon.

Straw purchasers, employers, relatives of the shooter, including anyone who knew the shooter’s plan and failed to report them, can be held responsible. Depending on the mitigating factors, mental health providers and law enforcement officials in a position to intervene may be a target in a mass shooting liability. The economic implications for a first-party loss can include the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Events cancelations or business interruptions
  • Mental health counseling and crisis management
  • Cleanup payments and costs of security upgrades
  • Workers’ compensation for sustained injuries and death benefits (vary by state)

In most states, a property owner is not legally responsible should an individual(s) get injured by the criminal acts of another person. But, according to Section 344, Restatement of Torts, business premise owners can be held liable if the mass shooting was probable, and they took no precautions against the criminal acts. Although more focus is placed on third-party mass shootings liability, property and workers’ compensation insurers are becoming more responsive to the rising threats of gun violence. As such, they’re offering tailored risk assessment products that respond to the unique impacts victims may face.
