An afternoon at the shooting range can be a great time. However, unquestionably, shooting ranges can also be extremely dangerous. It is critical that the owners and operators of the facilities take proper precautions to protect the safety of all guests. The negligent party must be held accountable for any shooting range gun accidents. Liable parties could include the shooter, the gun range, or both. All parties at a shooting range have a responsibility to look out for the safety of others. Specifically, these responsibilities include:
If you are injured by a gun at a business, you may be able to hold the business liable. This is true regardless of whether the injury was sustained because of an intentional act or an unintentional act. Nevada businesses have a legal responsibility to protect their customers from unreasonable safety hazards. This includes protecting them from acts caused by third parties. All businesses must have adequate security on the premises. If you were injured in a gun incident at a business, and you believe poor security was a factor, you should contact an experienced Las Vegas negligent security attorney immediately. Specific factors that are indicative of negligent security include:
Some gun injuries are sustained on public property. Often these occur as the result of ‘wrong place, wrong time’ type accidents. For example, a person may be injured while hunting or by someone else who is hunting. In this situation, many feel that they do not have any legal options. However, that is simply not the case. If you or your family member was injured or killed by a gun on public property, please get your case in the hands of an experienced attorney. Your attorney will ensure that all negligent parties are held accountable. In public property gun injury cases, this could include:
As a property owner, you too have a legal responsibility to ensure that your property is free from unreasonable safety hazards. This means that property owners can potentially be held liable for gun accident injuries that occur on their property or in the vehicle, although Nevada homeowners and other non-commercial property owners have lower obligations than do Nevada businesses. One of the primary obligations of all Nevada property owners is to warn invited guests about known safety hazards. For example, imagine that you own a considerable amount land behind your home. On this land you have a small shooting range. You allow your friends to use this range on a regular basis for some informal target practice. In this scenario, you would have a legal duty to warn your invited guests about the existence of the shooting range. This is so your guests can take active measures to reduce their risk of being injured in a gun accident. The bottom line is that you may be held liable for a gun injury that occured on your property if it is deemed that you failed to take reasonable care to protect your guests. If someone was injured by a gun on your property, or if you were injured in a Las Vegas area gun accident, it is imperative that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You must act quickly to protect your legal rights.
