The Lanier Law Firm Investigating Remington Model 700 Rifle Claims

HOUSTON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on more than two dozen deaths and hundreds of injuries related to a faulty trigger mechanism used in the Remington Model 700 rifle, attorneys from The Lanier Law Firm are investigating potential claims for those who have been injured or whose family members have been killed by the dangerous firearm.

Many of the problems with the Remington Model 700 rifle were exposed in a 2010 report from CNBC, " Remington Under Fire: A CNBC Investigation." Since then, Madison, N.C.-based Remington Arms Company LLC has continued to profit from sales of the deadly rifle despite many injuries and deaths. Regardless of the damning evidence in the CNBC report, Remington Arms responded with a statement asserting that the Model 700 "has been free of any defect since it was first produced."

"Many gun owners and their loved ones are taking a bullet because Remington Arms decided to put profits over safety," says Mark Lanier, who founded The Lanier Law Firm and has successfully handled Remington Model 700 cases for the firm's clients. "It should scare everyone to death to know that there are more than 5 million homes in this country where you can find a Remington Model 700 rifle."

Lawsuits filed over the Remington Model 700 assert that the model includes a dangerous and defective trigger mechanism, called the "Walker Fire Control" system, which can cause the weapons to fire without a trigger pull. According to the claims, the Model 700 can fire upon release of the safety, when the main bolt is moved or when the gun is jarred or bumped.

In 2012, The Lanier Law Firm successfully represented a Texas man who was severely injured when his Remington Model 700 rifle fired unexpectedly, striking the man in the foot. The firm negotiated a favorable confidential settlement on the man's behalf, and has continued to investigate the details behind the Model 700 malfunction and why Remington Arms continues to sell the dangerous weapons to consumers.

If you have been injured or a loved one has been injured or killed while using a Remington Model 700 rifle, please contact The Lanier Law Firm to discuss your claim.
