Weapon Accidents

Gun ownership is a right under the law but even well-meaning citizens and the guns they possess can cause serious injury and death.


There will continue to be debate on the responsibility of gun ownership, but under the U.S. Constitution every eligible American can own firearms. Whether it's for personal protection or the sport of target practice and hunting, shotguns, rifles, and hand guns including revolvers are allowed as long as you have not been convicted of a crime that takes away your "right to bear arms." Yet according to investigations by the Associated Press and USA Today Network, gun accidents were the direct cause of death for children every other day in the first six months last year. Most accidental shootings and injury are the result of either product defects or an error on the part of the shooter. In a split second a gun accident can result in catastrophic injury or unnecessary death. Hiring the right attorney to determine who is at fault, even in an accident, is imperative to discover whether negligence or the manufacturer should be held liable for compensation.  Harry L. Harper and his legal team know the steps you must follow when guns cause injury or death and his firm has the experience to navigate the sensitive nature of gun accidents and those who suffer harm.
