Common Shooting Injury Claims in St. Louis

According to a 2017 study, 1,300 children die and 5,790 are treated for gunshot wounds each year. Aside from children, the most likely victims of gun accidents are individuals under the age of 25 and people that live in states with a higher availability of guns.

While it might be easy to assume that hunting accidents are one of the most common causes of shooting injuries, the truth is that hunting is one of the safest outdoor activities, with a rate of only 5% of hunters sustaining injuries in hunting accidents. The most common types of shooting injury claims in Missouri include:

  • Improperly stored firearms
  • Lack of gun training
  • Alcohol use
  • Improper supervision
  • Gun defects

Missouri Shooting Injury Lawsuits

The State of Missouri ranks sixth in the nation for gun death rate, including intentional and accident shootings, according to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the past month alone, several people have died or been critically injured in gun-related accidents, including a 23-year-old man near Amberg Park, a 33-year-old Florissant man, and a man that was shot on Natural Bridge and taken to the hospital in critical condition.

If you have been injured or your family member has been killed due to shooting injuries caused by another person’s negligence, it’s essential to keep in mind that you could be entitled to recover damages depending on your state’s personal injury and wrongful death laws. After a gun accident, to ensure that the best results are produced for your case, it’s crucial to gather substantial evidence from the accident, seek medical attention or have an autopsy performed, and consult a Missouri Shooting Injury Lawyer about the situation.

It can be challenging to prove that another person’s negligence has caused a shooting injury without adequate knowledge of your state’s laws, but an experienced St. Louis Shooting Injury Lawyer can analyze your case, determine who is liable for damages, and help you file a compelling claim against the negligent party.
