I was accidentally shot. Who is at fault?

Accidental shootings can be complex situations that require the advice of an experienced firearms injury lawyer. Many questions must be addressed, including:

  • Who owned the gun?
  • Where and how did the shooting occur?
  • Did the person using the gun have the legal right to possess a firearm?
  • Was the gun safely stored or was it kept in plain sight?
  • Was the firearm or ammunition defective, causing it to misfire unexpectedly?
  • Where was the gun bought?
  • Who manufactured the firearm or ammunition?

We will examine all of the relevant factors in your injury claim with the goal of helping you and your family obtain maximum compensation.

Do I need and attorney after a shooting accident?

After a shooting injury, you may be entitled to monetary compensation from a negligent shooter, homeowner’s insurance company, landowner, or even the manufacturer of a defective firearm/ammunition.

What if I accidentally shot myself?

Not all accidental shootings are the fault of the firearm owner.

In recent years, firearms manufacturers have paid hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and jury awards after gun owners were injured by defective firearms.

Defective gun accessories, such as holsters, can also lead to accidental shootings.

Our attorneys have the expertise to evaluate your case and the resources to challenge big gun companies and obtain maximum compensation for your injuries.
