Experienced Representation Helping Gunshot Accident Victims Recover Compensation

Many gun tragedies are the result of accidents that were waiting to happen. Gun owners have a duty to store weapons and ammunition securely — but many don't, and this results in the tragic loss of life.

Common Instances That Often Result In Tragedy

Common examples of gun owner negligence include:

  • Failure to put trigger, chamber or cable locks on guns
  • Failure to store ammunition securely
  • Accidental discharge of a weapon
  • Discharge of a weapon in a city or public area
  • Negligent handling of a weapon around others

Sadly, many victims of gunshot accidents are children. Neighbors are also commonly hit when gun owners discharge weapons carelessly.

Holding Negligent Gun Owners Accountable

Gun handlers have a duty to treat firearms as if they are capable of being discharged at any time. When careless people put others at risk, they need to be held accountable.
