MASS SHOOTING LAWYERS I ROMANUCCI & BLANDIN

The plague of mass shootings in America has devastated hundreds of communities, needlessly cost thousands of lives and caused injuries and trauma for countless other people. These types of tragedies are particularly heartbreaking and have taken place in locations like churches, elementary schools and high schools, shopping malls, houses of worship and in office settings - all places where people should be safe and not have to encounter gun violence.

Mass shootings are uniquely tragic because the shooting victims are innocent victims, often targeted by a gunman determined to carry out a racist hate crime as a white supremacist, go on a personal rampage or even create a domestic terrorism event. There is no way of understanding these events, but our team of mass shooting attorneys has experience bringing justice to mass shooting victims and their families.

The mass shooting attorneys at Romanucci & Blandin are honored to represent survivors and the families of victims of the Uvalde school shooting and the Highland Park, IL Fourth of July tragedies, as well as those injured and killed in the Las Vegas Route 91 mass shooting and the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando that targeted the LGBTQ community.

What happened in Highland Park, Illinois on July 4, 2022 was deeply traumatic and should have never happened. The incredible people in that community have shown amazing strength in the face of injury and loss. The tragic school shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas on May 24, 2022 was also intensely heartbreaking with the loss of 19 children and two teachers, and countless others traumatized because of what they saw and heard. These are two of hundreds of mass shootings that have taken place across the country.

In September of 2022, Romanucci & Blandin was proud to file lawsuits for more than 40 people who lost loved ones, were shot and wounded or suffered emotional trauma in the Highland Park shooting. We are proud of our collaboration with co-counsel Everytown Law and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison in our fight for justice for these clients.  The lawsuits are focused in their allegations of deceptive marketing on behalf of gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson, along with negligent business practices of the online gun and local gun shops involved in this case for selling the murder weapon to the shooter, despite local ordinances that banned assault weapons. The shooter and his father were also named as defendants in this case and the legal process will ultimately ask a jury to hold all of them accountable.

Systemic change to end the marketing and advertising of assault weapons used in these shootings takes a fierce and steadfast pledge to pursue the manufacturers, holding them accountable for what happened and demanding change to the relative ease of acquiring these guns. This critical change in our culture and communities will require both legislative reform and litigation – and Romanucci & Blandin has deep experience in both facets of change.

Our legal team of mass shooting lawyers knows firsthand how devastating mass shootings can be on the victims as well as their loved ones and family members. Our team was lead counsel in the Pulse Nightclub shooting that took place in Orlando in 2016, killing nearly fifty people and injuring even more. We also represented victims of the Las Vegas MGM mass shooting in 2017, that killed 60 people and injured more than 400.

These tragic events of gun and other mass shootings are also deeply challenging for law enforcement officers and first responders, dispatchers and police officers, public safety officials, school districts, company owners and leaders of religious organizations impacted by gun violence. Everyone is touched by these traumatic events.

Separate from litigation, our firm continues to strongly advocate for gun control to try and stop these mass shootings before they take place, by creating common sense safety measures to for background checks on individuals who want to purchase automatic weapons or even handguns which can cause mass casualties, and to create red flag laws and stringent background checks so people with serious mental health issues or a history of violence do not gain access to weapons.  

Although no amount of money can bring a loved one back, delay can mean the difference between success and failure in finding justice for your loved one. Contacting a mass shooting attorney for a case review and evaluation as soon as possible will ensure that valuable evidence is protected and that your claim is brought within the required statute of limitations.
