Gun Injury Lawyer in California

No matter how it happens, victims of gun-related accidents frequently face significant struggles on their personal roads to recovery. Victims of firearms accidents face mounting medical expenses, red tape involving insurance companies, and the understandable emotional and mental aftermath of handling an accident involving a weapon. All types of firearms, including pistols designed for personal protection, antique and vintage guns favored by collectors, hunting rifles, and assault weapons, can be used improperly in ways that result in personal injury or even death. Even air guns, pellet guns, and BB guns typically used by children can cause bodily harm if used in the wrong way.

gun injury

Accidents involving guns occur in a variety of situations, such as

  • Inexperienced gun handling
  • Impaired gun handling
  • Unsecured guns
  • Hunting mishaps
  • Unsupervised children with guns
  • Ricochets
  • Mass Shootings
  • Improperly maintained guns
  • Disagreements among individuals

Who Can be Held Liable for Gun Accidents

Under California law, premises liability requires property owners to practice a reasonable standard of care to ensure the safety of household residents as well as visitors. Several factors are involved in negligence.

  • Duty — the homeowner has a basic responsibility to take reasonable care to ensure the personal safety of other residents and guests.
  • Breach of duty — clear evidence of negligence must exist.
  • Causation — it must be established that the injuries in question were a direct result of that negligence.

If the weapon involved in the gun accident was defective, recovery might be possible under products liability law.
