Defective Firearms

Defective Firearm Lawsuit

Fight for Compensation with an Alabama Product Liability Lawyer

Gun accidents hurt or kill thousands of people every year. However, just because a firearm goes off does not mean a trigger was pulled. When the gun does not work in the way it was intended or expected to operate, those within its firing range can be seriously injured. Hunters, marksmen, customers at firing ranges, and innocent bystanders can all be wounded or killed.

Cunningham Bounds fights for just compensation on behalf of victims of the negligence of others. Whether the manufacturer, designer, seller, or other party was to blame, our firm has the resources to investigate and prepare a case that effectively fights for your best interests. Since 1958, we have become known as one of the top personal injury firms in the State of Alabama and have obtained billions on behalf of thousands of clients.

Common Firearm Defects

Guns may be considered defective when the weapon misfires, improperly recoils, explodes, or causes injury.

Legal actions stem from defects such as the following, and more:

  • Firearm safety failure
  • Overly-sensitive triggers (hair-trigger)
  • Design flaws (guns that need the safety switch off in order to load or unload)
  • Barrel or chamber failures and explosions
  • Defective chamber indicators
  • Faulty firearm accessories

Common gun safety features that can prevent injuries include chamber indicators that specify whether a firearm is loaded and injuries caused due to a faulty reading may be the fault of the manufacturer. Any modifications done by a re-seller may void the manufacturer’s warranty, but in certain situations leave the manufacturer liable if the modification, such as certain types of trigger modifications, magazine modifications, or sight modifications, cause injury.
