How We Approach Instances of Gun Violence Against Law Enforcement
Our experienced attorneys know that there are a number of serious considerations in any shooting involving law enforcement. Whether it was simple negligent gun ownership or a malicious act, you can trust that our team will get to the bottom of it. We will carefully investigate the event and find out what the best course of action may be in resolving the issue.
We will look into:
- Where the gun came from. Was it registered to the defendant? Are there any police reports involving the weapon? Was the weapon a department-owned firearm? In some cases, guns get into the hands of dangerous people due to the negligence of retailers and other important gatekeepers.
- The circumstances of how the officer was shot. Were they on duty at the time? Was this a routine training accident, the result of negligent handling, or a criminal act?
- Any parties who could be civilly liable for your injuries or the death of an officer. Was negligent gun ownership to blame? Could proper departmental policies or training have prevented this? Were there any criminal records, departmental disciplinary actions, or other record that should have prevented the individual responsible from possessing or handling a weapon?
- Whether there is any potential civil liability for the injury of death of the law officer. It is likely that a criminal trial will follow an officer’s shooting, but is there any civil liability to help pay medical expenses and pain and suffering? Our attorneys can help provide answer to the important questions.
By performing a thorough investigation into whether or not negligence played a role in you or your loved one’s injury or death, our legal team will be able to bolster your insurance claim and improve your chances of receiving the compensation you need. We can also help ensure insurance providers give your claim fair consideration and don’t give you the run-around or avoid providing you with the funds you need to make up for a serious injury or loss of life.
