Home / Case Results / / Six-Figure Gun Injury Settlement

Compensation: Confidential, Six-Figures

When a young boy was severely injured after being shot by a pellet gun, his family turned to Raphaelson & Levine for help. The gun, a high powered pellet gun styled to look like a AR 15 was fired struck our client directly in the head, which resulted in a fractured skull.

The pellet lodged in his shattered skull necessitated surgery to remove the pellet and place a plate at the fracture site to facilitate healing.

Our firm brought a claim versus both the homeowner and the person who fired the shot. The claim against the homeowner was for failure to supervise and for recklessly permitting unsupervised children to play with high powered firearms. The claim versus the individual was for negligence for failing to be aware of his surroundings before recklessly firing the weapon.

Our firm successfully established fault on each party and secured confidential six-figure settlements from the insurance carriers for both the homeowner and individual who fired the weapon.

Justice was served and hopefully served as a wake-up call that will prevent a future tragedy.
