Thousands of people are hurt or killed every year in gun accidents. However, just because a firearm goes off doesn’t mean someone pulled the trigger. Poorly designed rifles, shotguns and handguns can fire a round even when the trigger has not been pulled. The most common unintended discharges occur when the firearm is bumped, a round is chambered or the safety is moved. Other defective firearms can discharge even with the safety on. Monsees & Mayer P.C. is an experienced personal injury law firm representing victims and their families nationwide injured by defective firearms.
We are not an anti-gun law firm out to put American gun makers out of business. Several of our lawyers are gun owners themselves. We are simply defective gun injury lawyers who are not afraid to hold Remington and other big or small firearm manufacturers responsible for designing and building unsafe products.
If you have been injured by a defective firearm, or a family member was killed by defective gun, contact our gun accident attorneys right away. The sooner we get involved, the more options and greater chance you have to recover fair compensation for your injuries or loss.

While firearms are unlike other consumer products, we approach gun accident cases involving defective weapons much like any other defective product case. These cases can be complex, and gun manufacturers are quick to blame the gun’s user who may not be able to explain what happened. We analyze the events of the accident and the gun itself, consulting with firearm engineers, gun experts, law enforcement personnel and game wardens to identify known defects and consequences.
We also consult with medical specialists and life care planners to determine the extent of injury and its impact on your life moving forward. If an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, we are not afraid to go to court where we will present a compelling case in a clear and understandable manner.
