I read a lot of press releases, mainly the ones that interest me concern books and music, but occasionally some other subject will catch my eye. I read this one with shock and horror.

A legal company, literally an ambulance chaser is out to make money from the Las Vegas mass murder. In part the presser reads..

Those who were victims in this, one of the country’s worst mass shootings, or have loved ones affected may have a claim. For more information about a possible claim please do not hesitate to contact http://REDACTED.com/las-vegas-concert-injury/ or email The Shapiro Legal Group – firm@REDACTED.com or call 1-800-nnn-nnnn.

The Shapiro Legal Group specializes in complex personal injury litigation and trial of cases involving multiple victims. In conjunction with its Co-Counsel for the Las Vegas shooting tragedy it has litigated many cases against corporate defendants.

“Mass shootings such as those that tragically occurred in Las Vegas are unfortunately occurring more frequently and raise questions about the legal options of innocent victims of such events,” said attorney Mark Shapiro, managing partner for the Shapiro Legal Group.

“As was done in previous cases, our staff is currently investigating the various legal options victims and their loved ones may have including claims for negligence and willful misconduct. Our firm mourns for the victims of this tragedy, and offers the deepest condolences to those that have lost a loved one, or have suffered injuries as a result of this horrific act of violence. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of this tragedy, please do not hesitate to contact our firm immediately.”

These people apparently have quite a history of benefiting from misery:

Mark Shapiro has been practicing law for over 20 years and is the managing partner of Shapiro Legal Group PLLC. Mark has been actively involved in mass tort litigation since 2008. Mark and his firm have been involved in representing clients in: Avandia, Actos, Invokana, Xarelto, Pradaxa, Depuy Hip Replacements, IVC Filters, Talcum Powder, Invokana, Essure, Xarelto, Onglyza, Monsanto RoundUp, Risperal, Testosterone Replacement Therapy and many others. Mark is a member of the American Association of Justice and the New York Trial Lawyers Association.

I think this is disgraceful. What I wonder about is who does Mr Shapiro plan on suing? I doubt that the killers estate is rich pickings. My guess is that his target will be Mandalay Bay but I suspect that it will be an uphill battle.

I redacted the contact info from this article, however it is in the Press Release.
