Firearm Accidents Lawyers

When a firearm discharge accident occurs, it can leave someone seriously injured and struggling to know what to do next. It can impact everything from your physical and mental health to your financial stability. But no matter the specifics of your accident, you do have rights. Getting back on your feet financially and physically after an accident is possible, and easier if you have the right help.

Common Firearm Discharge Accident Causes 


  • Improper handling
  • Improper maintenance or adjustments
  • Poor workmanship
  • Unsecured Firearms
  • Unsupervised Minors

The majority of these issues come from improper handling. It may be someone with little experience ‘playing around’ with a firearm and shooting a friend, or someone who has training but who overlooks a safety step and accidentally discharges the gun, for example. But no matter what the specific cause might be, the outcome is the same – someone is injured or even killed, and moving on afterwards can be complex and difficult.

Heavy Costs of Gun Accidents

The immediate repercussions of a firearm discharge accident are obvious. Serious personal injury and even death can occur. Those injuries can take time to recover from, and will be a big challenge not only physically, but financially.

Some of the costs include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Long term care costs
  • Loss of income entirely

If the person who is injured is killed or permanently disabled, they and their families lose an entire lifetime of income. Even this future potential earning is a cost of the accident, and as such it should be considered when working to get a settlement from a personal injury lawsuit.

But the other side often tries to avoid giving you a dime, bullying you around and offering less than you’re owed to try to save themselves money – even as you struggle to make your bills and stay positive. 


Can You Seek Compensation?

In order to seek compensation for your injuries, you have to show that the person who injured you was acting in a negligent or reckless manner. Improper handling is a good example of this, but even a store owner who hands you a weapon that is unloaded but that ends up being loaded could also be an example of a negligent individual.

The key is showing that someone else acted in a way that any reasonable person would have considered negligent or reckless. With firearm accidents you’ll need to prove that their actions directly led to the discharge of the firearm and the injury you sustained from it.

If you can prove this negligence, you’ll be able to start taking steps towards getting the compensation you’re owed and moving on after an accident. It’s not always easy, but with the help of our legal team you will be able to get the restitution you deserve.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
