Products Liability Case Against Gun Manufacturer For Drop Fire Incident Results in Confidential Settlement

Firm client sustained a devastating gunshot wound when his firearm discharged upon falling on the floor. The stray bullet entered his leg and struck his tibia then fragmented causing our client to suffer from compartment syndrome. Our client underwent emergency surgery and extensive rehabilitation in his recovery.

The lawsuit alleged a defective design in the firearm that allowed it to fire under inertia. Ultimately, on the eve of trial, Attorney Shana P. Nogues was able to obtain a confidential settlement against the firearms manufacturer for the severe and painful injuries suffered by our client.
