MGM Resorts International has agreed to pay up to $800 million to victims of the 2017 Las Vegas massacre that left 58 people dead and hundreds more wounded. Lawyers announced the settlement on Thursday.

The settlement potentially covers 4,500 people, more than half from California. Newport Beach law firm Robinson Calcagnie is one of dozens representing those victims, some of whom are relatives of those killed, some are suffering post-traumatic stress, and others were left severely injured.

MGM had been faulted for lapses in security. The company did not admit to any liability as part of the settlement.
