Best gun violence attorney for campus gun violence
On April 16, 2007, the Virginia Tech campus experienced the horror of one of the deadliest school shootings our country has ever experienced when an undergraduate student shot and killed 32 students and faculty members, and wounded 17 others. Gun violence and wrongful death attorney, Douglas E. Fierberg negotiated a historic and complex settlement in excess of $11 Million on behalf of 20 families who suffered the loss of a loved one or sustained traumatic gunshot injuries as a result of that event. The settlement guaranteed that those who were seriously injured receive compensation and their health care needs will be taken care of forever. Additionally, families who lost loved ones will be similarly cared for and compensated. During our investigation, we were also able to uncover information that led to a better understanding of how such a terrible tragedy happened and what schools and universities can do in the future to protect the lives of their students. It is our hope that necessary changes are made and no other family will have to endure the heartache of such a terrible tragedy.
