Have You or a Loved One been Wrongfully Injured? Protecting Your Rights Through a Personalized Approach

Miami Gun Accident Lawyer

Accidental Shooting Injuries & Death

We often hear about gun violence and shooting accidents frequently on the news. According to the Centers for Disease Control, a person is killed every 15 minutes by gunfire, with much of it due to careless handling or storing of firearms. When someone is injured or killed in an accident that was entirely preventable, it can be devastating.

If you or a family member has been shot or suffered fatal injuries by an accidental shooting, Mitchell & West LLC can help you recover compensation and seek justice. We can evaluate your claim and fight for full and fair recovery that includes medical bills, missed wages, pain and suffering, and other losses.

Some common gun injury accidents occur from:

  • Handing a gun to another person
  • Using a gun while drinking alcohol or using drugs
  • Defective gun safety features or design flaws
  • Accidents at firing ranges
  • Hunting accidents
  • Children accidentally firing guns
  • Accidentally firing a gun while cleaning it

Who is Liable in Shooting Accidents?

Owning a gun is a right that comes with great responsibility. Gun owners are required to safely store their gun and make sure that others are not able to access it, especially children. Owners of firearms also have a duty to use their guns responsibly, or they can be held liable for injuries and deaths that result.

Civil liability can fall on one or more of the following

  • The gun owner
  • The owner of the property (negligent security and supervision)
  • The gun manufacturer if the accident was caused by a defect (product liability)
