What is an Accidental Shooting?

A gun owner may be responsible for any death that occurs because of his or her gun, and a homeowner may be responsible for allowing a gun in his or her house or business without adequate safety precautions in place. We’ve handled a number of accidental shooting cases in which the shooting was preventable, or someone was negligent.

What is Wrongful Death in Florida?

In the state of Florida, surviving members of a family may be able to bring a wrongful death lawsuit where a family member is killed because of somebody else’s negligent conduct. 

Usually the representative must show negligence or other conduct falling below the standard of care on the part of the defendant.

Under Florida law, a party is negligent when he or she fails to exercise reasonable care, resulting in an injury to someone else. Reasonable care refers to the obligation to act as a prudent person would act under the same or similar circumstances. As a result, establishing negligence requires showing the following four elements. The defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care, the defendant breached this duty, the plaintiff’s harm was a direct result of the defendant’s breach, and reasonably quantifiable damages arose.

An experienced wrongful death attorney investigates and evaluates the events leading up to the death, sometimes making use of experts like physicians, accountants, and reconstruction specialists.  

Accidental gun shootings can seriously injure or even kill unsuspecting victims.  In such instances, the gun owner may be subject to criminal and civil liability.  Wrongful death claims are complex and can only be filed by certain family members. These claims are also subject to a different statute of limitations from other types of personal injury claims. Thus, it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as you are even contemplating such a claim.

If you or someone close to you has been hurt or killed due to an accidental gun shooting, it is important to act quickly.
