Firearm Injuries

Posted on May 13th, 2009 No Comments

Although the ownership of firearms is protected by the United States Constitution, regardless of where you stand on the issue of gun control, it cannot be denied that firearms can be extremely dangerous if improperly stored or used. Injuries resulting from firearms are relatively common, and can cause numerous severe, life-altering consequences.  In fact, firearms play a role in over 38,000 deaths every year, almost as many deaths as from motor vehicle accidents. If you have been injured by a gun, understandably, you would seek compensation for your injuries.

However, it is often difficult to be fully compensated in cases such as these, especially without the aid of an experienced Cincinnati firearm injury attorney. In many cases, the defendant will try to prove that the victim was in some way responsible for their own injury or that they could have avoided the situation. Even when liability is proven, actually obtaining compensation can be exceedingly difficult, especially if the defendant does not have an insurance policy that covers these types of injuries.

Through the responsible use of firearms, their risk can be minimized. However, we cannot always rely on other people to be responsible enough to avert injury to ourselves. Anything from the negligent operation of a firearm to reckless horseplay or even pure maliciousness can result in a firearm injury.
