Gun Accident Attorney

St. Louis Gun Accident Lawyers. Nearly 6,885 people died from gun accidents in the U.S. from 2006-2016. It is said that children and teens are the main victims of gun accidents, and that most of these accidents occurred because a firearm wasn’t properly stored or locked away. This is a serious concern in St. Louis due to the popularity of keeping a gun in the home for safety. Awareness needs to be raised in regards to how firearms should be stored and how they should be safely used to prevent gun accidents. Gun accident injuries are serious and sometimes fatal. Consulting a Gun Accident Lawyer at the Dixon Injury Firm can ensure that your rights are protected during this difficult time.

I pride myself on tirelessly fighting for the injury victims who continuously trust me with their cases. It is an honor to serve and a passion which drives my existence.

If improperly handled, guns can cause serious and fatal effects in users. Common gun accident causes include lack of training, lack of supervision, and defective weapons. To guarantee safety when using a gun, it is important to be knowledgeable of how to use a firearm. Laws require gun users to complete a certified gun safety class to own a gun, but it can be easy to forget things over time. It is important to constantly learn about gun safety, and seek out further knowledge on the subject to ensure that you’re knowledgeable about everything concerning gun safety. Lack of supervision is a serious concern in regards to gun accidents. If a gun is improperly stored, children or other uninformed users can have access to the firearm and become seriously injured or killed. Gun safety defects are a common cause of gun accidents. The gun industry doesn’t require gun manufacturers to recall defective guns or ammunition, and users are entirely reliant on gun manufacturers to take action if there is a potential defect.

Gun Safety

A 3-year-old boy was killed this past summer in Missouri when a gun was left out in the family home. This brings about the question, “Why did this happen?” Gun accidents can occur when a gun is handled improperly and is discharged. This can be due to improper storage, shooting while cognitively impaired due to drinking or other intoxicants, lack of knowledge of how to handle a firearm, and many other reasons. Regardless of why gun accidents happen, to prevent them from happening it is essential to know how to properly handle a firearm and keep yourself and others safe.

The following steps can prevent gun accidents and improve firearm safety:

  • Always unload guns when they are not in use. A loaded gun could accidentally be triggered by a child with access to it, or by someone that isn’t experienced and assumes that it isn’t loaded.
  • Properly store guns in hard to reach, high places so that children won’t have access to them. A gun safe is preferred.
  • Before using a gun, make sure that you’re fully knowledgeable of how to use the gun, what it’s features are, and how to use the gun responsibly. There are certified classes available regarding gun use, and if you need to brush up on any rules or regulations, taking one of these classes again will certainly help.
  • Don’t modify guns. Altering a gun can cause it to act defective and dangerously.
  • Never rely on the gun “safety” and act carelessly with it just because the “safety” is on. Even if that mechanism is on, if you drop or accidentally do something else jarring to a gun, it can still go off.

If you or someone you care about has been involved in a gun accident, you should consult immediate medical attention, and then contact a gun accident lawyer who can help you with the case. Dixon is dedicated to fighting for any compensation that you might be entitled to such as lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses related to the injuries sustained in a gun accident.
