Gun Manufacturing and Personal Injury Lawsuits
Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit if My Gun is Defective?
Sometimes gun-related injuries aren’t the owner’s fault. Gun manufacturers and designers can create products that are dangerous and harmful to consumers. However, just because a gun backfires, explodes, or otherwise malfunctions doesn’t necessarily mean you have a personal injury lawsuit on your hands.
On the other hand, you may have a legitimate personal injury claim if the following are true:
- Your gun malfunctioned and you were harmed as a result.
- The gun manufacturer, designer, seller, or other involved party had a duty that they breached.
- That breach of duty led or contributed to your injury.
Courts will also consider whether or not the party you are suing could have foreseen the damage they caused through error, omission, or other negligence. If it would have been impossible to know that the gun you were sold or given to use could have harmed you, it is unlikely that the courts will consider your personal injury claim to be viable.
However, if you have been injured due to a gun malfunction and are interested in exploring your legal options or filing a lawsuit against the person or entity that caused your injuries, get in touch with a Dallas personal injury attorney immediately to review your case.
