Gun Liability for Firearms and Concealed Carry

Many gun owners own a firearm for protection then leave themselves wide open to liability claims. Improperly handled, a gun can cause serious accidental injury or death. Gun liability insurance is important for anyone who owns or works with firearms. A firearm or a business involving guns comes with significant responsibility. If you don’t have gun liability coverage in place, you’re taking an unnecessary risk.

Accidents Involving Firearms are Common

At XINSURANCE, we know that most gun owners are responsible and follow the essential safety procedures when it comes to handling their firearms. We also know that unforeseen incidents occur where it becomes necessary to use a firearm for protection.

In some unfortunate cases, a gun can end up in the hands of the wrong person. Whether it’s someone inexperienced at handling firearms or someone intending to use it for criminal purposes, responsibility for injury or damage caused by your firearm may come back to you.

Sobering Statistics

In 2017, 39,773 people died from gun-related injuries, of which the majority were caused by hand-guns. While most injuries are caused by assault (76,258), a staggering 18,362 injuries are unintentional. Firearms are the second leading cause of death for American children. These statistics prove that it’s never been more important to ensure you have the appropriate protection in place for you or your business.

Following the Correct Procedure

There are a number of procedures you can follow to minimize the risk of an accident or incident.

  • Carry the correct and valid licenses for your firearms
  • Ensure you are properly trained to handle your firearms
  • Keep firearms unloaded and locked away, out of reach of children and other unauthorized individuals
  • Keep guns pointed in safe directions when not firing
  • Never leave your firearm unattended
  • Have sufficient gun liability coverage in place
