Finding a School Shooting Victim Lawyer:
Schools are meant to be a safe place. When a school is no longer safe, parents and victims justly demand that comprehensive changes be imposed upon those who caused or failed to prevent their trauma. We have compelled schools to make their campuses safe and act responsibly towards victims of such tragedies.

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. School shooting victim 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.
For Children and Youth:
Children and youth are most directly affected by school shootings. School-wide drills and exercises can’t fully prepare the mental turmoil that follows a school shooting scare. Here are a few resources:
- The National Child Traumatic Stress Network
- SAMSHA – Tips for Survivors
- Managing Your Distress in the Aftermath of a Shooting
Families are indirectly involved in the aftermath of school shootings. There is often unique emotional and mental work that needs to be done by those close to victims as well. Parents who are looking to find the best ways to support their children will find these resources helpful:
