Causes of Gunshot Wounds

No matter how severe a gunshot wound is you should seek medical attention immediately. Bullets can cause devastating internal damage to your organs and bones, sometimes causing irreversible injuries. Accidental shootings happen for a number of reasons including:

  • Thinking the gun is unloaded or on safety
  • Playing around and pointing it in someone’s direction
  • Keeping guns in your home where children can find them
  • Hunting accidents
  • Cleaning the gun without unloading it first

Regardless of the cause, if you have been injured in an accidental shooting that was the result of another party’s negligent or reckless actions, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation to address your medical bills and other damages.
