Injuries From An Accidental Discharge
The most common type of firearm accident is an accidental discharge, often from a trigger defect caused by poor trigger assembly or a defective trigger replacement. Whether the weapon was found to be a defective product or if you were accidentally injured by another individual, our firm can assist you in finding sufficient evidence like expert testimony and seeking compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
A firearm accident can cause a range of injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue damage
- Internal organ damage
- Shattered or broken bones
- Flesh wounds that may become infected
Unfortunately, many victims die as a result of their injuries. Our firm handles wrongful death cases for families who are dealing with a fatal accident.
Our Experience Is Your Advantage
Attorney Richard Ramler is the lead lawyer in a class-action lawsuit against Remington for the defective manufacturing of their Model 700 series bolt action rifle. This gun has been shown to contain a mechanism that allows it to fire without the firing mechanism being pulled. Rifles with this mechanism have been sold since 1948 and Remington refuses to recall the weapons. As a result, hundreds of people have been injured or killed.
