While most people think either hunting accidents or tragedies involving children when they think about non-criminal gun fatalities and injuries, those are not the only possibilities. The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence points out that, in 2010, firearms were used in 19,392 suicides throughout the nation, constituting some 62% of all gun related deaths in that year. Studies suggest, in fact, that the risk of suicide actually increases in homes where the guns are kept loaded and unlocked. While the Law Offices of Burg and Brock don't know how many of those cases could legally fall into the area of personal injury liability, there is no doubt that every one of those deaths represents a failure by a gun owner to control his guns properly – even, or especially, if the person committing suicide was the gun owner.
