What Are the Causes of Shooting Accidents?

Unfortunately, there are many different possible causes of accidental shootings. Some of the more common causes are:

Insufficient Training

Handling a gun is not a skill that comes naturally, which is why it is very important that every person who is going to touch the weapon has sufficient training to know how to handle it. Whether you’re at a firing range with an instructor or at home with a family member, that other person should take the time to make sure you know how to use and navigate the weapon. When they don’t, it can be extremely dangerous.

Dangerous Assumptions

A common cause of an individual shooting accidentally is assuming a gun is unloaded when in fact it is not. Whether the individual is going to clean the gun, is showing it off to friends, or is just relocating it, assuming that the weapon is unloaded can be very dangerous and can cause an accidental shooting. The best practice is to always assume every gun is loaded and handle it with that assumption in mind.

Lack of Muzzle Discipline

As you may know, muzzle discipline refers to keeping the firearm pointed in a safe direction at all times. The purpose of muzzle discipline is that if the gun is always pointed in the safest direction possible, then if there is a negligent discharge, it will not physically harm anyone. Whether it is because of a lack of maturity, insufficient training, or intoxication, oftentimes gun owners leave their muzzle discipline at the door; when they do, it is very dangerous.

Inadequate Trigger Discipline

Another important discipline for gun owners to practice is trigger discipline which refers to keeping their fingers off of and far away from the trigger until the gun handler is ready to fire. If a handler lacks trigger discipline and has their finger on it before they are ready, it makes it that much easier to accidentally fire and injure someone.

Gun Range Negligence

Customers go to gun ranges to learn how to safely handle a gun, but if a range is poorly maintained or uses faulty equipment, customers can end up shooting accidentally at other customers or employees nearby. This can turn what was supposed to be a learning and fun experience into an absolute tragedy.

Defective Parts

Firearms, unlike most products in the United States, are not within the scope of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Unfortunately, this means that it is not uncommon for a gun to be defective or have a defective part. Defective parts, as you may expect, can be very dangerous and cause accidental shooting accidents.

If you or a loved one were injured in an accidental shooting in El Paso, but the cause of your accident is not listed above, don’t let that stop you from reaching out to one of our personal injury lawyers. We recognize that these kinds of accidents can happen for a myriad of reasons, and we believe that if yours was caused by negligence of some kind, you deserve compensation regardless of your circumstances.

Who is Responsible for my Injuries?

Who is liable for your injuries will largely depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident. If, for example, the accident was caused by the negligence of an employee at a gun range, then the range owners could be legally responsible in addition to the negligent employee. If on the other hand the accident occurred at a friend’s house while they were showing off their new gun, the friend’s homeowner insurance would be responsible for compensating you.

Figuring out who is responsible is not as easy as it may sound, which is one of the many reasons why it is important to hire an El Paso injury lawyer. Someone shooting accidentally happens so fast, it may be hard to figure out what went wrong; was it user error, or was it a defective part in the firearm?

Figuring out the answer to that question may not be something you can do on your own, but thankfully you don’t have to. At Zinda Law Group, our experienced injury attorneys know how to investigate your case, figure out who was liable, and fight for you to be compensated to the maximum.

What Kind of Compensation Might I Receive?

This is unfortunately another question where the answer is “It depends.” Every case is different, so despite how experienced our accidental shooting lawyers are, we can’t give you an exact amount of compensation you might receive. However, we can explain generally what types of compensation you may be awarded.

The type of compensation you may be awarded depends in part on the type of claim you bring. In the example where the accident was caused by a gun range employee’s mistake, the claim would likely be negligence.

In successful negligence cases, a plaintiff is normally awarded economic and non-economic damages. Together, these cover costs like medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and lost quality of life.

Unfortunately, accident shootings can also cause fatalities. If you lost a loved one due to an accidental shooting, we extend our sincere condolences for your devastating loss and want to help you seek some remedy.

In these kinds of cases, your cause of action would likely be wrongful death.  Under this cause of action, you can be awarded other kinds of damages to help relieve some of the stress of your grieving process, such as compensation for funeral and burial expenses, lost earning capacity, lost love and companionship, and emotional anguish.

Texas also recognizes exemplary damages which are sometimes called punitive damages. In an El Paso accidental shooting case, these damages can be awarded where the incident was caused by especially reckless conduct. When a jury awards exemplary damages, the jury is essentially punishing the defendant for their reckless and unacceptable behavior.

Exemplary damages can add up, making a significant difference in your compensation award. Hiring an experienced injury attorney like the accidental shooting lawyers at Zinda Law Group can greatly increase your chances of recovering the maximum amount of compensation possible.

I had the privilege of working with Zinda Law Group recently and was thoroughly impressed with the level of service and support they provided. When we began, I had reservations about the likelihood of reaching a settlement, but the team's professionalism, intelligence, and dedication quickly put those doubts to rest. They went above and beyond to ensure that I was informed and comfortable throughout the process, and their hard work and strong advocacy ultimately led to a successful outcome. I cannot thank Zinda Law Group and their staff enough for their exceptional service and support, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of legal assistance. Their commitment to their clients and their willingness to fight for what's right truly sets them apart. In short, I give them a rating of five stars for their outstanding work.
Zinda Law Group is amazing! My husband was in an accident and they made the process super easy and hassle free. They took care of everything, we are so appreciative for them! They exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be telling everyone we know about them. Thank you Zinda Law for everything!
Zinda Law Group is an amazing firm! My case was not without its challenges, but they handled it all in stride. They kept me up to date, kept me informed every step of the way, and ensured I understood the process and all of my options. Burgess, Ryan and their extremely capable staff of Paralegals made a very challenging process as painless as possible. They were kind, compassionate, and patient, and just a real pleasure to work with. I would, and will, recommend them highly to anyone needing an attorney.
My experience with Zinda Law Group was pretty awesome. I definitely would recommend their Law firm.

I really appreciate all of their hard work and dedication, I highly recommend.Thank you all again for your help and your time.Sincerely,Pat.b
I was very satisfied with the professionalism of my attorney and the paralegals, they helped me threw this accident and got me a great settlement, all while keeping me involved and informed. Zinda law group made me feel comfortable and I trusted them to fight for me. The trust was well placed! Thank Yous, I appreciate all that Yous done for me and my family!!
I’ve had such a great experience with Zinda law group! They’ve handled everything relatively quickly and professionally. They really have made my life a lot easier. I recommend anyone dealing with auto accidents (or similarly) to Zinda Law group.I felt I was very important to them and that my feelings and thoughts were validated. They treated me with much care and respect, not like “just another client”. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.

Very accommodating they work extremely hard to make sure that you are compensated from start to finish they made it happen and made a rough time a lot smoother than I could of ever imagined thank you all for everything if you are looking for a lawyer that goes above beyond look no further Michael will get you taken care of!
Zinda Law did an excellent job for us from start to finish. They communicated clearly and their staff was great! My son Nic was in a car accident and had an injury to his eye. Zinda Law took care of everything start to finish and obtained the maximum amount possible from insurance for his injury.
I am so glad I called Zinda law group. being hit by a drink driver was the worst experience of my life physically and emotionally. As soon as I reached out they got the ball rolling with all my medical needs. They were in contact with all of my appointments and made my recovery as smooth as possible. I would definitely without a doubt recommend them. A huge shout out to Shivangi for taking over and fighting for what my family and I deserved.
My experience with Zinda Law Group has been OUTSTANDING! Big shoutout to Joe Caputo and his team!I was the passenger in a terrible car accident that left me needing medical attention. The person at faults insurance company reassured me that my medical bills would be taken care of. However, that was not the case. I started receiving multiple calls from debt collectors, and bill after bill by mail. The driver’s insurance company no longer returned my calls, and emails went unanswered. I was so stressed and over my head with how to handle the situation. It was time to call the pros! As soon as I made the call to Zinda Law Group, Joe and his team I were on it! I no longer received calls from debt collectors, so I knew action was taken immediately. I was informed every step of the way, and every call/email was answered. Had I called sooner, I would have never gone through all that stress. I was treated like a friend, not just a client.Thank you Zinda Law Group!
I hired Zinda for a crazy situation involving an 18 wheeler where an object flew off a trailer and blasted through my windshield.I reached out to Zinda and spoke with Michael Cupero, my attorney at Zinda, after the accident once I realized this is affecting my day to day life in a significant way (PTSD from a "Final Destination" type of incident) and Michael was nothing short of fantastic through the entire process.The Zinda team, including Michael and Mary-Catherine Holt and several others, guided me through the entire process from initial settlement offers, filing the lawsuit, depositions, the whole 9.They listened to my concerns, provided clarity and perspective when needed, and not once did I feel that my best interest was not at the forefront of their actions and behavior through my experience as a client.Thank you Michael, Mary-Catherine and Zinda!If you want a team that will treat you with professionalism, respect, and understanding then do yourself a favor and reach out to Zinda!
Extremely professional and communicative . They explained the process as we went along and made it very clear weighting pros and cons. They understood my pain and my worries but kept their expertise always on the top of things finding elements for me to win my case. I am thankful to have had Zinda Law Group to support me during those two years as it finalized and I can keep on living.
My experience with Zinda law group has been wonderful from start to finish. Natasha and Emily explained everything very well and answered any questions I had, communicated well throughout the whole process , and handled the case very professionally, they worked very hard on my case I would definitely highly recommend to friends and family.
I found myself in a situation where I needed legal representation. After looking over reviews in the area, I decided to contact Natasha at Zinda law group in the hopes that she could represent me . Natasha put me at ease with her responsiveness and her ability to accommodate my last minute needs. I had no idea what to expect. It felt like a wave of relief knowing that you're working with a professional that knows what she's doing, and knows how to get things done quickly and efficiently. I appreciate the time and attention that Natasha put into my case. I hope I won't be needing their services again in the future, but I would absolutely contact them again if I do. Thanks again
I am very satisfied with the service and the outcome of my case.Since the first phone call, and every step of the way until the end, Zinda Law was on top of every detail pertaining to my auto accident case.The case is now closed, and looking back, they made every step of the process easy and manageable. They were very thorough in explaining the different scenarios, and extremely transparent with all the possible outcomes.Thank you to every person who aided in the success of my case, all of whom were exceptional in their tasks and working as a team.
The Zinda Law Group was outstanding in helping me with my aunts case. My two Attorneys Neil and Shivangi were very compassionate, kind, eager to help, and really listen carefully and attentively to my case about my aunt. My aunt got hit by a driver while crossing the street and killed. I went after the guys insurance; although, this doesn't bring back my aunt, but allows for this not to happen to other people like this in her case. These attorneys worked very hard and efficiently to bring the justice that they saw fit. When I had a question they explained in terms I understood and not above and beyond me. I appreciate it when people can come down to my level and not intimidate and use trepidation on someone in feeling like they are the fly while they're the spider waiting for the right moment for the fly to walk into its web.Neil and Shivangi always whenever they called asked me how I was at the beginning of our conversations and is there anything I needed at the end of each call. Each call they made to me, was made very professional, personable and felt heart felt as if you were part of the family. At the end of each subject matter they always asked, "Do you have any questions for me before we go to the next thing we need to talk about?" They always wanted to make sure I understood everything before the next item we needed to talk about. These guys really are good and want to please the client anyway they can I thought; when I first started talking to them. I give them above and beyond a 5-Star rating if there was such a thing. I Highly Recommend The Zinda Law Group to Anyone who needs them. This is what I give them if I could!!💯💯💯💯💯 and👍👍👍👍👍 and⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐❗❗❗THANK YOU TO NEIL, SHIVANGI, MARA AND TO EVERYONE AT THE ZINDA LAW GROUP WHO WORKED ON MY CASE!! I APPRECIATE YOU ALL!
I would like to recognize a fantastic attorney named Joe Caputo from Zinda Law Group. I was involved in an auto accident that had many complicated moving parts that were hard to navigate and understand as a victim. Joe was so gracious and spent quality time explaining what courses of action I needed to take as a victim to protect myself. Joe was also diligent in following up with me regarding my case and provided guides and checklists that were extremely helpful to keep things organized and moving. Joe was always readily available for my questions and responded promptly. Joe Caputo's excellent counsel ensured I protected myself when dealing with the opposing insurance company and ensured the best possible outcome for my case. Joe's expertise in personal injury lawsuits helped alleviate the stress and anxiety that follows the aftermath of an auto accident. Thanks again Joe! You are truly an amazing, kind person and attorney!
Zinda Law was incredibly amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Michael and his incredibly hard working team after my wreck in November. They went above and beyond keeping up with my health, bills, insurance companies, all that fun stuff I had no time for. After what felt like such a short amount of time, they were able to win every last penny from the "bad guys" insurance (loved that term). I couldn't happier, and even though I went through something traumatic, it was still the best experience I could have ever asked for. Thank you Michael and everyone that helped with my case, yall are the best!!
My attorney was Christina , she and her team gave me the best outcome for my case .I am giving an honesty review at first I was very upset because I kept getting moved around and I never knew who I was talking to because they switch attorneys and kept changing my paralegals.. I was going to go with another law firm but Christina helped me with my case from then on out and she worked around my schedule to talk to me which I appreciate. Also my last law firm took 30 percent, and this one took 33 percent which I wasn’t to happy so just a heads up. Overall I rate this 4 stars cause I’m just happy the case is over with and I get to go back to my life.Update: I just received another call from my attorney and they have worked to negotiate my case with the billing and have put more money in my pocket. All the money that I had spent while working on the case has came back to me. I can fully move on and say that I have gain every penny that was lose during those hard times. I’m so happy and thankful to Zinda law group!!!!!!
Zinda Law Group did an excellent job with my case. The staff was super friendly and super effective as far as communicating with me throughout the entire case. I highly recommend Zinda Law Group for your next case and for any of your future cases. 5 Stars across the board thank you so much for everything!
Joh Harper, Priyonka Bhikha, and the rest of the team gave my case a quick and satisfactory conclusion. The attorney, Mr. Harper did an absolutely amazing job keeping me on the same page as far as the case goes. Honestly, if anybody is hurt in a car wreck or another personal injury case, I WILL STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU SPEAK TO THEM.
I was in a motor vehicle collision about two years ago. From the minute I picked up the phone to speak with a representative to the case finally settling, it was a great experience. I worked with Burgess Williams and his team (Kathy, Ryan, and Linda) throughout the process. They were all very professional and helpful when I needed them the most.
Great Firm. I was in motorcycle accident- T-boned at a full stop with my daughter riding on back. Zinda's team was instantly responsive. Christina was very compassionate, organized and scheduled time before every legal event to discuss goals and overview. The process was 2 years but during that time the lawyers and staff (John and Shane were also great) were always available and understanding. The team is focused on doing what is right and by the book. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who is suffering from a motorcycle accident.
Jason Aldridge and his paralegal Mara did an absolutely amazing job on my case. They were very responsive to all emails, calls and even texts. They treated me with dignity and respect from start to finish. I never once felt like my case was at the back of the list or anything. Not only did they explain and walked me through everything, they got me the help I needed and a final outcome over what I had expected. I would highly recommend this law firm, Jason and Mara to anyone seeking legal assistance.
Highly Recommended-100% Satisfied!.From the initial phone call I felt confident I chose the right firm. They explained the process and I was always in the loop, even when we were at a stand still. Very grateful I was quickly referred to them by a friend who had a similar case. Both of us are happy with the end result. Thank you!
My team of lawyer were very professional and communicated extremely clearly. They kept me updated on their status and did not make me worry at all about my situation. They explained everything to me very well and put things into simple terms for my understanding. I am very satisfied with their performance.
I would recommend them to anyone that's been involved in an accident and feels skeptical in engaging an attorney.When one gets into an accident, you're traumatized, confused, angry and helpless.That was me last year, getting all kinds of advice becomes your next norm, to use or not to use an attorney.I was in so much pain from my injuries but at the same time knew I had to act fast.I called Zinda Law Group for consultation, they took my case seriously and treated me with respect, they were very professional and understanding.Elizabeth, kudos to you, you're true to your word, Integrity should be your last name.Jason Aldridge my attorney went to work immediately, he assured me that all be well and I should concentrate on my healing and he will do the rest. Thank your Sir, You did just that.His team, Mara, Zuleyma and Andrew, they all become my support system, so professional and lots of respect in each and everyphone call or email. Thank you guys.I would recommend anyone to use Zinda Law Group.
I honestly loved not dealing with the hospital bills while I was recuperating. It gave me peace of mind going through this process and Zinda took care of everything. They found awesome health providers for me and haven't had to worry about anything while they've been taking my case. I've been well informed, communicated with, responded to and understood by Zinda. They have been efficient and effective while working on my case and I'm so glad I choose to go with this law firm.
When I was injured in a car accident in March of 2020 the insurance companies were not concerned with my well being. I called Zinda Law group & spoke with Reagan, who went over my concerns & later had Jono contact me. After reviewing my information with Jono my case was immediately put in motion. I worked mainly with Sam Thomas who truly was a blessing to me, he was very supportive & genuinely concerned with my well being, everything wasn't simply about the case it was about me being healed & getting the proper treatment that I needed. Sam was also emotionally supportive when I went through several losses in my family & is a great friend. In all everyone was extremely supportive & all worked for me which was quite a different legal experience for me from Law groups in my past. I was well supported, always informed, treated with respect & made the priority in all decisions. Zinda Law Group made sure I was compensated completely & that I didn't have financial stresses over hospital bills after all was said & done. Sam, Katrina, Mary Catherine, Reagan & Jono I just want to thank you & all of Zinda for the incredible experience & the wonderful caring people that you all are, you are truly Golden in your field.
They helped me after I got into car accident, they are such a great professional business. I would honestly recommend them to anyone that would need help after a car accident for sure, they kept me up to date with everything that was happening on with my case. I had multiple people working on my said case and they were very professional and nice whenever they had called me and kept it very simple for me to understand what was actually going on. I'm extremely happy that I had found them and went with them to help me and I'm so thankful for them. 10/10 would recommend!
I am so glad I got in touch with Zinda! My car accident occurred just 4 days prior to moving, during the busiest week of the year at my job, and just a week before the quarantine was declared a new reality for all of us. Everyone at Zinda remained persistent, supportive, and most of all advocated for me throughout such a chaotic time. I’ll always be grateful for the care they took to make sure my health and well-being were taken care of. So super grateful to know that a split second mistake someone else made doesn’t have to dictate my life. Thanks!
My experience with Zinda Law Group was better than expected. After an accident that totalled my car, I reached out and was paired with a wonderful attorney. She communicated frequently and responded to my calls and texts in a timely manner. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. I was kept in the loop during every step of the process. I would call Zinda Law if I ever need this type of support again.
I had an excellent experience working with the attorneys at Zinda Law Group! They were knowledgeable, professional and patient. They walked me through every step of the long process of getting treatment after my car wreck and kept me updated with timeframes and next steps. I would absolutely recommend anyone working with them!
They helped me with so much! I had a dog bite happen 2019 and it was very heart breaking! This law group made everything so easy to help me through a rough time! John Rogers and Shane Eckert were very easy to talk to and open about if I needed to talk about frustrations I had with bills. Everything got closed before Christmas and I was so blessed! I highly recommend them no matter what! Thank you guys so much!
Zinda Law Group helped me with my personal injury case after an auto accident. I was hurt pretty badly and I wasn't sure which attorney to call, I looked at reviews for Zinda Law and called right away.Kaitlin Nares and her team were so responsive and helpful. Kaitlin called me right away and helped me navigate through a very difficult process and time in my life. Being hurt in a car accident changes you!!! My case settled for more than I thought it would, and a lot quicker. I know sometimes things are more complicated, but my case was settled in only 3 months after my accident. Mary-Catherine was also so helpful in making sure everything was finalized! I have referred two people who have recently been in auto accident because it's not IF, its WHEN these days... I usually don't write reviews unless I feel strongly about sharing my experience to help others! Thank you!!!
I was referred here by a family member. Our lawyer jason and his team did and amazing job. They kept me updated in everything made sure I understood what was going on. My son was hit by a van in the hospital jason came right over. He's awesome so much down to earth straight forward. I would recommend him and his firm to everyone and I have thank you zinda but most of all thank you Jason for being there for us for being a friend
Zinda Law Group was recommended to me from another satisfied client and I certainly received excellent service. The attorneys and staff are very proactive with communication and I knew every step of the way what was happening on my case. I never felt pressured with decision making and they went above & beyond to answer questions with satifactory explanations. This is a very professional group of attorneys & support staff. In addition, they were willing to meet me at a location more convenient for me. I appreciated their concern for my time.
Could not speak highly enough of the firm. I was involved in my first accident and thankfully had Zinda Law Group supporting me through the scary time. Jono took care of me every step of the way. He made me feel like I was a priority through the entire process. A big thank you to Jono and the rest of the Zinda crew!

Why Do I Need an El Paso Injury Lawyer Near Me?

Accidental shootings are oftentimes traumatizing experiences. Even if the negligent party didn’t intend to cause you harm, they did, and you deserve to be compensated for all that you lost. Moreover, the negligent party needs to be held accountable for their mistakes so that they don’t make them again; hiring an accidental shooting lawyer is the best way to make that happen.

An experienced injury attorney can listen to your story, investigate your case, and negotiate with the defendants or their big insurance companies. Negotiating with lawyers from insurance companies—lawyers whose main goals are to compensate you the least amount possible—is an intimidating experience and not one you should have to take on yourself.

Our personal injury lawyers are experienced negotiators and have obtained great settlement offers for countless clients. More importantly, if negotiations are unsuccessful, our lawyers are ready to fight for you in court and have the experience necessary to present the strongest case to help you win.

The best part is that our injury attorneys not only offer 100% free case consultations, but they also promise a No Win, No Fee Guarantee. That means it won’t cost you a penny to hire us, and it’ll only ever cost you anything if we win. We know you have struggled physically and financially; it’s our job to make this process as easy for you as possible.


Despite how common gun ownership is in El Paso, most gun owners don’t know what they would do if they found themselves involved in a shooting accident. Although gun accidents may seem rare, they are much more common than you might think. These accidents happen fast and can be extremely overwhelming, so the best thing you can do for yourself and your family is to be aware of the steps you should take if you find yourselves in this unfortunate situation.

Seek Medical Attention

It’s probably no surprise to you, but the first step you should take is to always seek the appropriate medical care. Wherever the gunshot wound is, it can be fatal, which is why it is so important to act fast and see a doctor right away.

Even if the wound is minor, getting it checked out as soon as possible will help avoid infection. If you wait and it gets infected, the defendant could use that down the line to argue that you didn’t properly mitigate your damages by failing to take care of the injury. To avoid this argument and to take care of yourself, always seek medical care as soon as you can.

Report the Accident

After you have seen a doctor and been taken care of, you should try to report the incident to the police as soon as you can. Reporting the incident to the police and filling out a police report will help you and your personal injury attorney down the line.

Filling out a report quickly when the details are still fresh in your mind is important and helps set you up to succeed in any subsequent lawsuit you file. If you don’t file a report, the defendant could argue that the story happened differently than how you explained it, and you won’t have a report to back you up.

Reporting the accident can also help protect others. If, for example, the accident occurred at a gun range that was being improperly maintained, the police can begin an investigation and the gun range owners will be on notice to better manage their shop.

Document Everything

Starting the day of the accident, try to document everything that you can. Write down the names and contact information of any witnesses of the incident so that we can call on them later on if necessary.

If possible, take pictures of the scene where the accident took place or pictures of your injuries. Keep a log of the days that you had to take off work or any other expense you incurred.

Although the tragic event will likely stay with you forever, your surrounding memories of it might fade. Documenting your road to recovery is extremely helpful for when it comes time to prove to a jury that you deserve compensation for your struggles.

Call Zinda Law Group’s Accidental Shooting Lawyers in El Paso
