Albuquerque, NM Personal Injury-Gun Shots Wounds
Whether it’s for protection in the home or for hunting, firearms can provide safety, security, and power. However, firearms are also very dangerous when handled improperly or by the wrong individuals. Gun shot accidents occur without forewarning and can have severe repercussions on the lives of those involved in the shooting.
New Mexico, and 38 other U.S. states, is a “shall-issue” state which means that if you meet the minimum criteria for carrying a concealed weapon you can be issued a permit. While this may make some individuals feel safer in their daily lives, it can also increase the risk of an accidental shooting. Each year, hundreds of children and adults are afflicted with accidental gun shot wounds. When an individual is accidentally wounded, they deserve compensation for their injuries.
Gun shot wounds and other injuries caused by the accidental firing of a firearm is considered ballistic trauma. Injuries can vary greatly depending on the point of entry and trajectory of the bullet, but some of the most common injuries and effects include:
