Minnesota Shooting Incidents

Has a shooting Left You or a Loved One Injured or Worse?

If you’ve been the victim of a shooting accident or have a loved one who has been injured or even died in a shooting, safe to say emotions run high. Trying to work your way through those emotions can be quite difficult. This is especially the case when the shooting did not have to happen in the first place.
So, the time may have come where you need to seek a personal injury attorney to sort through everything. Now is one of the most important times to get legal counsel to review your potential case.

Let a Minnesota Injury and Wrongful Death Attorney Take Aim at the Case

When you or a loved one is the victim of a shooting, time is of the essence. This is why getting as many of the details related to the shooting into your attorney’s hands is critical. He or she needs to have as much information as possible to begin seeing what kind of case you may have.

Among the areas to focus in on:

  • Where and when the shooting took place and who was involved – Provide your legal counsel with as much detail on where the shooting took place, when it happened, and who was involved. It is important to point out that not all shootings are committed by bad people. Yes, some shootings are the result of police being involved. While many officers use their weapons as a last resort, this is not always the case. According to an Associated Press report, accidental shootings by law enforcement officers over the last few years nationwide have caused injuries and fatalities to not only crime suspects, but also officers and even bystanders.
  • Who can be held responsible for the shooting – In looking at who may be held responsible for your shooting or that of a loved one, remember that gun accidents still mean liability in a fair number of cases. Given laws pertaining to gun accident liability, be sure your legal team discusses with you who in fact is legally responsible for your injuries or those of a loved one. Such responsibility can end up in the hands of the owner of the gun, the person who fired it (if different from the registered owner), who sold the weapon and even the company responsible for manufacturing it.

Whether the shooting was an accident or not, by consulting with a Minnesota wrongful death attorney, you can better ensure your suffering or that of a loved one does not go unpunished in a court of law.
