Gun Accident and Defective Gun Attorneys
Many people are injured by defective guns and gun accidents each hunting season. Poorly designed rifles, shotguns, and muzzleloaders can fail explosively. Cheap imported guns sometimes explode due to poor testing and quality control. Improperly designed guns can discharge even with the safety engaged. Gun barrels made from cheap metal alloys can fail catastrophically. Hunters or target shooters can carelessly discharge their weapons. When a defective gun fails or a careless hunter shoots irresponsibly the results can be devastating.
