Recovering Damages from Firearm Accidents in Dallas


We’ve represented parents who have lost a child to defective guns, to people who were careless with firearms, and to mass murders. We’ve represented orphans who have lost parents to the same tragedies. You’ve seen enough suffering and injustice.

Each and every year, individuals using firearms are injured by faulty manufacturing and poor firearm design, as well as criminal negligence while firing a gun. Firearm accidents often result in life-threatening injuries or death. Manufacturers must be held responsible for their errors and compensate injured individuals.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in a firearm accident, you need a Dallas personal injury attorney at your side who will stand up to insurance companies and firearm manufacturers no matter what. Fatal accidents resulting from defective gun models happen far more often than they should.

Not only can compensation for serious injuries be obtained, but you could also help ensure that the defective models are remedied and that no further injuries will be sustained as a result of the manufacturing of defective guns. Our firm fights to protect innocent individuals injured in gun and firearm accidents. We hold gun manufacturers responsible for their errors and demand that they remedy the damages. No one should have to endure the physical and emotional trauma of a firearm accident.

Potential Firearm Malfunctions

When purchasing a firearm, we expect it to work as advertised. But guns, even when not defective, can be incredibly dangerous if used improperly. When they malfunction, it can be deadly. A few of the potential defects to be aware of are:

  • Hair-trigger (an overly sensitive trigger)
  • Barrel failure
  • Requiring the safety to be off in order to load/unload
  • Flawed firearm accessories
  • Faulty chamber indicator
  • Firing when dropped
  • Defective ammunition

When any product, especially weapons, are involved, manufacturers have a responsibility to make sure they are as safe as possible. Whether the malfunction happened because of purposefully cutting corners, or a simple mistake, manufacturers should be held liable for the pain they cause.

Injuries Sustained From a Firearm Accident

Every year thousands of people across the United States are injured or killed in gun accidents. A malfunctioning firearm is a recipe for the worst kind of disaster. Any number of injuries can occur, but here are a few of the more common ones:

Catastrophic injuries, like the ones listed above, lead to high medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and emotional distress for both you and your loved ones. If you have been injured by a malfunctioning gun, you deserve justice. Manufacturers have a responsibility to keep their customers safe. If they fail that responsibility, they should be punished to the highest degree possible.
