Defective Firearm Lawsuits
Defective firearm lawsuits are a type of product liability lawsuit and are brought when someone is injured from using a gun in the correct and regular manner in which the firearm is intended to be used. In these scenarios, the injured party can bring a claim against those who are responsible for the defect, which caused the victim’s injury. Guns are considered faulty when they fire without the trigger being pulled, or in extreme cases, when a defective firearm explodes, injuring the user and bystanders in the process. Defective gun lawsuits can also be brought when faulty ammunition is the cause of injury or death.
The laws pertaining to defective gun lawsuits can be governed at the federal, state or local levels. Therefore, retaining the expertise of a knowledgeable and skilled defective firearm lawyer is crucial to holding the liable party responsible and obtaining compensation.
