Accidental Shootings

In the United States, most citizens have the legal right to own a firearm. Unfortunately, some individuals misuse this right by purchasing a firearm without taking safety classes or getting proper training. These classes, most importantly, teach basic gun safety. As a result, there are hundreds of accidental gun shootings and injuries each year.

It is the responsibility of any gun owner to take great caution when it comes to using his or her firearm. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed in an accidental shooting, contact the Rhinelander Personal Injury Lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (800) 242-2874.

Accidental Shootings and Children

Many of the accidental shootings that happen each year involve children who are too young to understand the great threat that comes with misusing guns. Children see gun fights on television and in movies all the time and are often eager to simulate them if they can get their hands on one at home. Parents who own guns should do the following to help ensure their children’s safety:

  • Put guns in lock boxes far away from children
  • Teach kids about the dangers of guns
  • Never allow children to point toy guns at each other
  • Do not let children see where you keep your gun
