Any person lucky enough to survive a gun accident can at the very least suffer serious personal injuries. Severe bodily harm, including harm to internal organs, paralysis and other serious consequences, commonly results from a bullet wound. Handguns and hunting guns such as rifles and shotguns, even when fired by accident, will likely lead to death or lifelong consequences for the victim.

Tanenbaum, P.A., we can assist in pursuing compensation from the individuals involved in the shooting or from their homeowners or liability insurance.
