Q: Is there ever any type of claim in Missouri when someone is injured or killed by an accidental gunshot or firearm discharge?

A:

There are many different ways in which a gun can cause damage.  Many times the damage is caused by mistake.  Sometimes a child finds an unguarded/protected gun and plays with it, unknowingly discharging the gun.  In other situations, a person might mistakenly believe that a gun was unloaded only to have the gun fire.  Regardless of the reason a firearm arm accidentally discharges, it is extremely important to have a qualified legal expert review the particular facts.  Many times a claim for damages exists against the gun owner, home owner/business owner where the shooting occurred or the shooter themselves.  There is also often insurance that may provide a means to compensate the victims for their loss.  Our law firm has handled many different types of shooting claims.  Please give us a call so that we can help you see if you have a claim.
