The Lihula incident saw two killed and several injured. According to Sorainen, “on June 6, 2020, a 32-year-old man fired shots at strangers, killing two and injuring three, in Lihula, Parnu County, Estonia. [Sorainen] submitted civil claims for damages on behalf of the family of victims who were in a car that the man shot at, killing one of the passengers and injuring three more people, including two young children.”

Furthermore, according to Sorainen, “on May 20, the court ruled that all civil claims will be satisfied in full. The accused did not contest the claims. The total amount of compensation was close to EUR 300 000.”

Sorainen’s team included Partner Kaupo Lepasepp, Associate Mari Haamer, and Legal Assistant Hanna-Elise Rahni.
