The UNLV Shooting of 2023

December 6, 2023, changed the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) community forever. A senseless act of violence took three innocent lives and injured one. The shooter, a former professor who was denied a position at the school, was killed in a shootout with police. While details are still emerging, students, faculty, and their loved ones are forced to deal with the life-altering aftermath.  

Resources to Support the UNLV Community

The emotional trauma from mass shooting crimes, like the UNLV tragedy, can be just as hard to deal with as physical injuries. Consider connecting with mental health service providers like Fuente de Vida Mental Health Services, the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center, or the Crisis Support Services of Nevada

A support group can also help. Surrounding yourself with others who understand your experience can offer invaluable guidance and connection.

Exploring Your Legal Options

As a gun crime survivor, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and the emotional pain and suffering you’ve endured. Or if you lost a loved one, you may be entitled to recover for wrongful death. 

The legal complexities of UNLV violent crimes like this require an attorney with extensive experience in gun crimes and a deep understanding of Nevada’s specific laws and regulations. This knowledge ensures that your rights are protected and your case is handled with sensitivity and skill. 

When searching for an attorney, look for someone who:

  • Has a proven track record of successful outcomes in shooting victim cases,
  • Treats you with respect, empathy, and understanding, and
  • Prioritizes your well-being and advocates for your best interests throughout the legal process.

Legal advice may be essential as you work toward emotional and physical recovery from the aftermath. A knowledgeable attorney can guide you through the legal system and help you get the justice you deserve.
