Gunshot Wounds

One of the most fundamental rights in the United States is the right to purchase and own a firearm in one’s home. Although guns and firearms are useful in protecting individuals or for hunting, they are also dangerous and cause hundreds of thousands of accidental injuries and more than ten thousand deaths every year. Suffering an injury from a firearm can be extremely devastating, and if you have sustained gunshot wounds due to the negligence of another party, you may be able to pursue financial compensation.
