In recent news, a man from Long Beach was shot and wounded at an Island Park bar at around midnight. It seems like all we hear in the news today is gun related incidents, and it’s getting out of control. America has about 11,000 gun related deaths a year, while Britain has 35. Clearly something needs to change in our country. While congress sorts the issue out, we want you to know that if you are the victim of gun violence, you have rights. Pursuing a civil case can provide the necessary funds for medical bills as well as pain and suffering and also give victims a sense that justice was served to help them move forward with their lives.
The recent public awareness of gun violence is tied to an array of agonizingly sad stories. The innocent children taken in the Sandy Hook shootings, a high school student shot in Washington, DC just a week after performing for the President, Christopher Dorner’s nightmarish rampages in California, and the list goes on.
We pray we never receive any more phone calls from someone who’s been shot at or has a family member injured or killed in from gun violence, but unfortunately that is not necessarily today’s reality. Gunshot wounds are serious, often resulting in one or more of the following injuries and results:
- Bone shattering
- Organ puncturing from shrapnel
- Spinal cord damage
- Severe bleeding
- Hypovolemic shock
- Central nervous system damage
- Severe disabilities
