Can Victims and Families File School Shooting Lawsuits Against School Districts, Police, and Gun Manufacturers?

Earlier this year, one of the most tragic events in recent memory took place in Uvalde, Texas. The school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde claimed the lives of 19 students and two teachers. Many believe that along with the shooter, the government, school district, law enforcement, gun retailers, and gun manufacturers share responsibility for the Uvalde school shooting due to negligence.

In August, Yahoo! Finance reported on a $27 billion civil lawsuit that the families of the survivors and victims of the school shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde are filing against a long list of defendants.

Reportedly, the defendants named in the Uvalde school shooting lawsuit include the following:

  • Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District Police Department
  • School Police Chief Pete Arredondo
  • Multiple sheriff’s offices
  • Texas Rangers
  • Texas Department of Public Safety
  • Border Patrol
  • Uvalde Independent School District school board
  • Uvalde City Council
  • City of Uvalde
  • Daniel Defense (gun manufacturer)
  • Oasis Outback (where the shooter bought the gun)

The Uvalde school shooting wasn’t an isolated incident. It is part of a long series of school shootings that have happened in the U.S. since the late 1990s. This unfortunately means that until our nation makes some drastic changes, it isn’t a matter of if there will be more school shootings, but only a matter of when the next one will happen.

The Uvalde school shooting lawsuit could be a big step in the right direction if it can force those in power to begin to make changes that can help prevent school shootings, and mass shootings in general, in the future.

There are certain things that no parent wants to ever think about, and one of those things is what to do if their child is injured or killed in a school shooting. No parent should have to go through that, but it is unfortunately a reality of the world we live in today.

Nothing can bring back a child who is killed in a school shooting, nor can anything heal a child who suffers a permanent injury because of a school shooting. However, for many parents, when they file a school shooting lawsuit, it’s about holding those (school districts, gun manufacturers, and law enforcement) whose negligence led to the tragedy accountable. Doing so can help lead to change and help prevent other children and their parents from suffering because of the same negligence in the future.
