In Missouri, many people have unfortunately experienced the trauma of living through gun injuries and deaths. In 2021, 17,395 patients were admitted into Missouri hospitals for gun related injuries and in 2020, Missouri had the 4th highest firearm mortality rate in the country. Some of these injuries and deaths were due to criminal actions and some were horrible accidents that could have been prevented. In either case, victims and their families may be eligible to receive compensation for their damages. Hiring a tenured personal injury attorney ensures that you will receive the compensation you deserve all while having a compassionate and knowledgeable ally on your side to help you navigate through your time of need.

Intentional Gun Injuries

In most cases, injuries and deaths involving a gun are intentional. These intentional actions, called intentional torts, are typically criminal in nature and will be handled as such. However, hiring a personal injury lawyer may ensure that you receive the amount of money you deserve by pursuing civil action as well.

Unintentional Gun Injuries

In the cases where injuries and death caused by a gun are unintentional, it must be established if the party responsible was negligent. If they are found to be negligent, the unintentional injuries are then escalated to negligent torts. To prove negligence, three standards must be met.

  • Duty of Care: the defendant must have had a legal duty to make reasonable actions and prevent harm. In Missouri, it has been ruled that the highest degree of care must be used when handling guns.
  • Breach of Duty: the defendant must not have upheld this highest degree of care when handling the gun by acting, or failing to act, in a particular way.
  • Causation: the actions of the defendant are directly responsible for the damages suffered by the victim.
