Gun Accidents and Defective Firearm Lawsuits
Guns are the only consumer product that aren’t regulated by the federal government. The gun industry is exempt from all federal safety and health regulations, making it so that federal agencies cannot require gun manufacturers to recall defective guns, ammunition, or gun accessories. Just like with recalls for airbags and other car parts, gun owners are at the mercy of the gun manufacturer to issue a recall, which may not be issued before the gun defect presents a dangerous problem for the gun owner.
According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, up to 40 percent of new guns come with some degree of defect. That’s a concerning statistic that means millions of people across the country have a gun in their home that poses a potentially fatal danger to them and their family. If you believe you have a gun with a defect, or if there’s been an unintended gun discharge that you believe was caused by a gun defect, our law firm is equipped to represent you.
