Gun Negligence Insurance Claims
Our Tri-State Injury Attorneys Fight for You
Across the country, negligent gun use and ownership is a growing cause of injury. Firearm deaths in general are the third most common cause of death in the U.S., according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. Those who own and use firearms should be held to a higher standard of care. At Burnside Brankamp Law, we are dedicated to helping those who have gun negligence claims. Whether you have been injured as a result of negligent gun ownership, training or operation, we are ready to help.
What is Considered Gun Negligence?
Because of the dangers firearms can pose, those who own them or use them in the line of duty should be held to a higher standard of responsibility and care for those around them. It is considered criminal negligence to threaten someone with a firearm, but negligent gun use can also lead to personal injury and wrongful death claims as well.
Examples of gun negligence include:
- Leaving loaded firearms in vehicles, homes, and storage.
- Failing to safely store firearms and prevent access by unauthorized users and children.
- Failing to install trigger locks on all stored firearms.
- Failing to ensure a weapon is unloaded before cleaning or handling.
- Failing to assure the firearm’s safety is on at all times until ready to fire at a lawful target.

I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.
Mr. Brankamp turned a very scary, unknown legal matter into a situation we could calmly navigate through. He was polite but frank, fact finding yet empathetic. He really made us feel like he had our daughter's best interest. Even during a pandemic when we could not meet face to face, he was easy to communicate with and always kept us in the loop on what was happening. I would definitely hire Jared again in the future. Thank you Mr. Brankamp.- Elisha Bound
