Hightower Law Group advocates for the design of safer firearms and for the recall of firearms known to be defective. We do not, however, call for gun control that would contravene a broad reading of the 2nd Amendment as expressed in the United States Constitution.
The design and warnings of firearms sold in the United States is overseen and regulated only through litigation otherwise known as the American jury system.
An example of a dangerously designed gun that has been sold to approximately 6 million unsuspecting Americans is the Remington 700 Bolt-Action Rifle. Remington knows that this gun fires without command. In fact, Remington has known this for over sixty years. But Remington still refuses to recall the rifle.
Hightower Law Group is very familiar with the long and infamous history of the Remington 700’s defective trigger. The most effective way—really the only way—to protect consumers and sportsmen from defective firearms is through litigation in American courts. Our laws are designed to hold manufacturers of all products sold in this country to a reasonable standard of safety.
Thousands of people are injured annually by defective guns. If you or someone you know has been injured by a firearm, a lawsuit may be appropriate depending on the circumstances of each individual case.
Hightower Law Group will provide a free initial evaluation for each individual case. Together, we may be able to prevent future injuries from defective guns.
