TASER® Injury Attorneys
At Crumley Roberts, We Take Away the Worry
Law enforcement officers and security personnel utilize TASER® electroshock weapons, or stun guns, to temporarily incapacitate individuals when other, less forceful methods are ineffective. Civilians may also use stun guns to protect themselves from individuals who mean them harm. Although they have their advantages when used responsibly, TASER® guns can cause serious injury or even death when misused.
If you suffered injury or lost a loved one due to TASER® or stun gun use, we may be able to help. Crumley Roberts represents individuals in TASER® injury lawsuits, helping them seek justice by holding at-fault parties accountable for medical bills, lost earnings, and other expenses or losses. The injuries associated with stun guns can be severe, leaving you facing an uncertain future. Our North Carolina attorneys are here to help take away the worry.
When you come to our firm, you become a part of our family. We realize you are facing one of life’s most difficult moments, and we want to offer you the support and counsel that can help pick you back up again. Our mission is to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.
TASER® & Stun Gun Injuries
A TASER® is a battery-operated, hand-held unit that shoots two barbed electrodes up to 35 feet. Embedded in the body, the electrodes deliver a pulse of up to 50,000 volts of electricity, causing the person to fall to the ground and become unable to think or move for a short period of time.
When a TASER® is shot into the face, upper chest, or genital area, it can cause serious injuries. It can also cause serious harm if multiple stun guns are used or a TASER® is used repeatedly. The following injuries may be associated with improper TASER® or stun gun use:
- Burns and lacerations at the electrode site
- Sprains and joint injuries caused by muscle contractions
- Head trauma or other injuries that occur when the victim falls to the ground
- Cardiac arrest
- Brain injuries
