Were you seriously injured while using a defective gun? Were you harmed by the deceptive trade practices of a gun maker? If so, we want to learn about your case.
There are hundreds of accidental injuries and deaths from guns each year. Some of them are due to design or manufacturing defects that cause guns to explode, unintentionally discharge, or otherwise malfunction. If you suffered harm due to a manufacturing defect or were the victim of deceptive trade practices related to your gun purchase, you could get compensation.
Our Houston product injury lawyer at the accident and injury law office of Terry Bryant is standing by to help you learn whether you have a case. Call us at (713) 973-8888 or toll-free 1 (800) 444-5000 to arrange a free, no-obligation consultation with a skilled product liability lawyer.
Turn to a Defective Products Law Firm for Help
Led by former Texas judge Terry Bryant, our law firm has come to the aid of people who have been harmed by defective products for over 35 years.

Don’t Pay the Financial Price for a Defective Gun Injury
When you aimed at your target and fired your gun, you trusted it to do the job for which it was made. If it exploded in your hands due to an incomplete discharge, failure to extract, or another reason, you shouldn’t be responsible for the medical expenses and other costs of the harm you’ve suffered. When rifles, handguns, shotguns, and other firearms are made that are poorly designed, use inferior materials, or are improperly tested, companies responsible for making and selling the guns should pay the price for the injuries their weapons cause.
Our defective gun lawyer will examine all the evidence in your case to determine liability. Then we’ll hold the responsible party to account.
What You Might Get in a Defective Gun Claim
If a defective gun has seriously injured you, you may be able to get money to pay for your damages through a defective gun claim against the manufacturer or other parties. Compensation could include payment for:
- Doctor bills
- Lost wages when you can’t go to work
- Lost earning capacity if you can’t work again or your work is restricted
- Pain and suffering for physical pain and mental distress
- Replacement of your gun.
Contact us today so that we can review your circumstances to determine whether you may have a gun injury claim and, if so, what it may be worth. Call us at (713) 973-8888 to schedule a free case evaluation.
You Could Have a Claim for False and Misleading Practices
The Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) protects consumers, including buyers of guns, from false, misleading, and deceptive statements or business practices. If you’ve bought a gun that is defective or doesn’t do the job you were told it could do, you may have a claim under this act for injuries or other damages you’ve suffered.
Under the DTPA, gun manufacturers, distributors, and sellers could be liable for:
- Breach of warranty when a product doesn’t perform the way it was claimed to in written or verbal statements, or if it’s claimed that a gun is made of higher quality material than it actually is
- Misrepresentation when false or misleading statements about a product cause consumers’ losses
- Unconscionability when companies take gross and unfair advantage of consumers’ lack of knowledge or experience to sell them guns or other products.
Recovery of Damages Under the DTPA
Depending on the circumstances involved, you could recover three times your damages under the DTPA. Damages can include both economic and non-economic losses, including pain and suffering. You can learn more details about a DTPA claim by visiting the website of the Texas Attorney General or speaking with an experienced defective product lawyer from our law firm.
