We Represent Injury Victims Of Gunshot Accidents
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.
