Gun Manufacturers Shielded From The Law

Wrongful Death AttorneyIn a world of ever-increasing gun violence, it is critical to examine the root cause and source of the many gun-related violent acts that lead to the wrongful deaths of innocent victims. The New Jersey wrongful death lawyers at Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. are well-aware of how gun laws can affect the families of victims, and they are dedicated to protecting the rights of gun victims and their loved ones.

In the D.C. sniper shootings, victims successfully sued Bushmaster (the company that made the semi-automatic rifle used) to the tune of $2.5 million. However, since then, Congress signed into law the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, functionally shielding gun-makers from lawsuits when their guns are used for violent acts. The 2005 legislation did stipulate that gun manufacturers may be sued if they “knowingly violated a state or federal statute applicable to the sale or marketing” of firearms, and in the event that said violation directly leads to injury. Just recently, three officers were injured in a New Jersey police station in the town of Gloucester when a man being processed for a domestic violence complaint opened fire inside the station. With a New Jersey injury attorney on your side, you can be sure that the makers of weapons used see some type of retributive justice.

Protect Yourself and Loved Ones Against Gun-Related Injuries

Considering just how frequent gun-related injuries can take place (over 200,000 non-fatal firearm injuries each year), it is paramount that you are up to date on the most recent legislation and all of the current regulations. In the event that you or a loved one is a victim of a gun-related injury, a wrongful death law firm like Gersowitz, Libo & Korek, P.C. will help you understand your rights and possibly recover damages for your losses. Navigating the legal obstacle-course regarding gun-related injuries can be very challenging and, at times, discouraging unless you have adequate legal assistance to help guide you through all of the many steps.

Any further questions or concerns should be directed to Gersowitz, Libo & Korek P.C. at 800-LAW-9997.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!!
