I represented a young man who was working away from home for the summer. He and a friend decided to spend the day shooting their shotguns. On the way home, my client’s friend shot him in the foot accidentally. The friend was carrying the gun under his arm without the safety engaged.
The friend committed negligence when he was carrying the gun loaded without the safety engaged. As a result, my client was shot and injured. In pursuing a claim on his behalf, we contacted the friend’s homeowner’s insurance policy. The policy ultimately provided coverage even though the accident took place away from home. When true negligence is involved, as opposed to intentional acts, insurance is typically available.
