West Virginia Firearm Accidents Lawyer

Who should you trust with your West Virginia hunting accident or gun injury case? Attorney Jeff Robinette is an Army-trained firearms expert who has had experience handling a wide variety of firearms ranging from shotguns, handguns, rifles, and even Howitzers. Jeff served our country as a field artillery officer for the 82ndAirborne Division before attending law school.

Jeff was raised in the coal fields of southern West Virginia and his upbringing naturally included hunting and fishing with his father. Jeff still enjoys this privilege today and is active in teaching his children how to safely handle and enjoy sporting firearms.

Unfortunately, not everyone who uses firearms has “safety first” in mind. Jeff Robinette has experience in handling all types of injury claims involving the use of firearms.

Hunting or gun accidents may result from accidental discharge, unsafe handling of the firearm, or from the victim being out of sight or mistaken for a game. Firearm or hunting rifle accidents can occur when:

  • Failing to engage the firearm’s safety;
  • Removing a weapon or placing a weapon in a vehicle;
  • Running, walking, or climbing with a loaded firearm;
  • Negligent gun handling;
  • Climbing trees or fences or performing any awkward action with a loaded gun;
  • Hunting in the woods or in an area without a clear target;
  • Shooting before a target is identified;
  • Shooting out of range across the road, near buildings, or in populated areas;
  • Gun or product defects exist.

Many people do not realize that if the person responsible for causing the serious gun injury or death has homeowners insurance, such coverage follows that person even when they are out of their home. The hunter could be responsible for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, and other economic damages, as well as non-economic damages like pain and suffering. This insurance coverage can help pay your medical bills or the funeral expenses for your loved one.

Jeff Robinette has the experience and knowledge to tell you what your rights are and what type of compensation you may be entitled to receive for your gun injury. Many hunting accident victims receive either no compensation or inadequate compensation because they don’t have the right advocate on their side to fight for them. Don’t let this happen to you.

Our Case Results

Crushed Foot Injury

While working in Morgantown, WV for a large national retailer, our client, a young woman in her early twenties, was ordered to use equipment that she was not properly trained to use. In the course of attempting to complete her task, she sustained a severe crush injury to her foot. Due to this incident, our client lost full use of this foot for the rest of her life and was living with chronic, persistent pain.

Our firm was able to obtain a sizable settlement which took care of all her medical bills and future treatment for her foot injury. The settlement was ample enough to allow this young woman to go back to college and retrain for employment which will accommodate her permanent disability.

Crushed Leg Injury

Imagine having your leg crushed so badly in an accident that you have to undergo two surgeries to insert multiple pins and have a rod hammered into the bone just to stabilize the femur. Unfortunately, the first rod inserted into the bone didn’t accomplish the desired effect, so the rod had to be removed and surgically reinserted. Imagine the great pain, the months of therapy and recovery, and the frustration of knowing you can never return to the type of work you have performed for decades.

Jeff Robinette was able to obtain a great enough settlement to pay this man’s medical bills in their entirety and money enough to start a new business so he could work and live a productive life even with his permanent impairment.

Brain Injury

While timbering in WV, a heavy equipment operator sustained a permanent brain injury while performing the duties of his job. What price can you put on the loss of a fully functioning, fully reasoning brain? Jeff Robinette was able to negotiate a settlement that was annuitized to provide for this man for the rest of his life.
