Guns at Home, Teenagers & Curious Children

A gun owner always has a responsibility to keep the guns they store in their home out of the hands of negligent or dangerous parties. Failing to take the proper steps to make certain a privately-owned gun is safely secured and stored can make that gun owner accountable for damages. To this end, negligent storage may be a centerpiece of any gun negligence case brought against a gun owner for an attack or accident involving their firearm.

Parents in particular need to be aware of the damage that can be done by:

  • Teenagers: In many tragic school shootings, the teenage shooter accesses their parents’ firearms to conduct the attack. Parents can be held both criminally and civilly liable for the harm done if they are found to have been negligent in keeping guns away from their children.
  • Curious children: In-home gun accidents often involve young, curious children who were not supervised properly and who found a gun that was not stored properly. Parents and homeowners can be found liable for damage caused by a curious child, whether they hurt themselves or another.

Gun Negligence Requires Serious Advocacy

If you have been hurt by a firearm that was negligently handled or stored by its owner, you need to consider how to seek damages from them. You can demand medical bill, lost wages, and even pain and suffering from them through a personal injury claim filed with the help of our personal injury attorneys in Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia. It is our hope that bringing claims against negligent gun owners and parents who allow their children access to guns will help reduce the incidents of gun negligence overall by spreading awareness of the problem and dangers.
