Florida shooting death attorney Jason Turchin has represented many families in civil claims whose loved one was shot and killed in Florida. If a family member was shot and killed in Florida, you may have a civil claim against the shooter and any landlord, business, restaurant, apartment complex or business who could have prevented the shooting.

Gun violence is often preventable and foreseeable. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gun violence claims an estimated 30,000 lives per year and injures more than 60,000. If you are the victim of gun violence or lost a loved one as a result of a fatal gun shot in Florida, you may have a civil claim for financial support and pain and suffering.

Florida civil claim for shooting death

Accidental shooting deaths in Florida can occur in a house, party, apartment complex, shooting range, car, store, and outside. Some of the most common types of accidental fatal shooting cases in Florida are:

  • Cleaning a gun without the safety on
  • Cleaning a gun without checking to see that there are no bullets  
  • Handing a gun to another and accidently pulling the trigger
  • Firing the gun at someone as a joke or prank   
  • Drinking alcohol while handling a gun
  • Firing a gun into the sky

What type of negligence can lead to a civil claim as a result of a fatal gun shot?         

In order to hold someone civilly liable for gun violence in Florida, you must often show that there was negligence on the part of the shooter, gun owner, property owner or gun manufacturer. Gun owners generally have a duty to protect their gun and make sure it does not get into the hands of someone else, like a child or house guest. If they give their gun to another, they could be held responsible under what we call "negligent entrustment". Failure to properly store their gun, failure to act reasonably when operating a gun, failure to properly and adequately supervise their children, and other claims could give rise to a civil claim for money damages from an accidental gun death in Florida.

If my family member is killed in Florida as a result of an accidental shooting, how can I make a claim?

First, call Florida shooting death lawyer Jason Turchin at 800-337-7755 for a free consultation. We will walk you through the case. There may be several cases intertwined: criminal case, civil case, probate case, family law or child custody case, and other possible cases. The criminal case focuses on the criminal while the civil case focuses on the crime itself. If there is a death involved in the shooting, we will help you open up a probate case which allows a lawsuit to be filed on behalf of the victim.
