Is Negligent Security Responsible for the Las Vegas Shooting at Mandalay Bay?
The premises liability law in Nevada states that it is the responsibility of the property owner to maintain it in a condition that is safe for guests who are on the property. Failure to maintain the property in a safe condition entitles the injured party to file a premises liability claim for negligence against the hotel or casino.
Paddock managed to carry multiple bags with an extensive array of long-range guns, explosives, and thousands of rounds of ammunition up to the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Investigators later found 23 guns, including AR-15-style and AK-47-style rifles, in his room. Paddock reportedly had a “do not disturb” sign on his door all three days so no housekeeping staff members entered the room.
According to court documents, Paddock once sued the owner of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in 2012 for negligence, saying that he “slipped and fell on an obstruction on the floor” while he was a customer there in 2011, resulting in $30,600 in medical expenses. A judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2014, according to court records.
What Can The Families Of Las Vegas Shooting Victims Do?
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. Negligent security at both Mandalay Bay and the Route 91 Harvest Festival may be held responsible for your loss.
A civil lawsuit may answer lingering questions about individuals and corporations who may have been able to prevent this horrible mass shooting.
