Accidental shooting injuries happen more often than you might expect. In the U.S., there are 88 guns for every 100 people. Mass shootings occur in the U.S. at eleven times the rate as other developed countries. Firearm accidents are extremely serious.

Most Common Causes of Shooting Accidents

A gun accident can be a life-changing event. Unfortunately, most shooting accidents occur because of someone’s carelessness or negligence. For example, improper storage of guns by homeowners can lead to children getting access to firearms. Guns are also misfired while cleaning or hunting, especially when the safety is not on.

Alcohol is also involved in many gun accidents. Celebratory gunfire, while perhaps fun, can be incredibly dangerous. It is also possible a gun accident happens not because of the user’s fault, but because of defective design or mechanical failure.

Why Should I Hire an Attorney?

While you don’t have to hire a lawyer, working with one has many benefits. A lawyer can help maximize your payout in a lawsuit. You can bet the other side will have experts handling their trial, so not hiring one will make you the underdog. Lawyers have experience with similar cases in the past and are trained in negotiation. If you don’t hire a lawyer, you will have to spend the time getting up to speed for your lawsuit, while your opponent can rely on an attorney’s existing experience.

Additionally, a lawyer can help increase your potential compensation by better estimating your damages. Lawyers can compare your accident to similar past cases and arrive at a more accurate damage estimate, which can turn into a higher payout.

Finally, the aftermath of an accident is an emotional, stressful experience. Having one more person on your team can help alleviate the emotional burden. Hiring a lawyer will ensure someone advocates for your best interests.
