When is a gun defective?
A firearm is defective anytime it fires without the trigger being pulled. For instance, if a gun explodes, fires when the slide is racked, fires when it is dropped, or fires when shaken or jostled, it is defective. Unfortunately, unintended discharges like the ones mentioned above happen every year and often lead to the catastrophic injury or death of a lawful gun owner. Many times, the firearm is defective in its design or in the way it is manufactured. At Morris Haynes, we help gun owners and their family members hold firearm manufacturers responsible for their defective firearms. If you suspect that your gun is defective, please unload it immediately, seek the advice of a licensed gunsmith, and call Morris Haynes.
