This may include compensation for physical or emotional pain and suffering, inconvenience, the loss of capacity to enjoy life, scarring or deformity, or other related damages. Americans possess a Second Amendment right to own firearms. Guns provide protection and safe recreation for many citizens. Injuries rarely occur unless a person or company acts negligently or intentionally. When weapons are mishandled or used in a crime, however, the resulting injuries are often permanently disabling or fatal, and always have very serious outcomes.

Reasons accidental firearm injuries occur:

Guns by nature are dangerous and need to be handled with caution. A careless moment can be catastrophic, especially if children or adolescents gain access to these guns or firearms. Owners are responsible for keeping their weapons in a safe space and away from children. All persons who are intended to have control of the weapons should be well-trained in safety and use.

Factors that can contribute to accidental shootings include:

  • Poor training in gun safety and use
  • Improperly stored firearms
  • Failure to use gun locks or locked cabinets
  • Children or Adults playing with guns
  • Children or Adults showing off guns to friends
  • Handling weapons after using alcohol or drugs
  • Hunting accidents
  • Design or Manufacturing Defects

What if I was victim to assault with a gun?

Non-existent or inadequate security and poor lighting can increase the risk of gun crimes in and near bars, resorts, theme parks, commercial buildings, apartment complexes, public spaces and quiet streets. Assailants view dim lighting, ample hiding locations, remoteness and abandonment as ideal opportunities to attack unsuspecting victims. In many cases, security companies, building managers and government departments are culpable for brutal firearm assaults. If the criminal assault was foreseeable and more could have been done to prevent it, the premises owner may be held liable for your injuries and damages.
