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.

Insurance Claims for Gun Related Injuries or Death

If you or a loved one was injured by someone else’s gun-related negligence, you have the right to file an injury claim. If your loved one was killed because someone else was negligent with a gun, you may also have an insurance claim. Our team of passionate personal injury attorneys have experience in locating any and all insurance that might be available to you and your family. It is important that the negligent party has insurance to pay for your damages. But there may be other avenues of insurance that may be overlooked by others. We’d appreciate the opportunity to start searching for any and all avenues of insurance for you.
