Experienced Shooting Injury and Fatality Attorneys Representing Clients Throughout Georgia
At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our Georgia shooting death and injury lawyers know that gun violence can change the lives of victims, witnesses, and bystanders alike.
Whether you were injured or lost a loved one in a robbery or another attack, during a hunting incident, as an intended target, during an unintentional shooting, or as a bystander, gunshot wounds often cause debilitating, long-term injuries requiring intensive, life-saving medical care, reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy. Others can result in permanent disfigurement and necessitate in-home care.
When shooting victims do not survive their injuries, their families are devastated from the loss of their loved one, and the circumstances surrounding their death.
In most cases, the criminal courts will take the lead in investigating shooting deaths and injuries in Georgia. However, survivors and families who have lost their loved ones under these circumstances should know more about their legal rights and options to pursue the shooter, the gun owner, or another third party that negligently allowed the attack to occur, in civil court to seek compensation for their damages, and obtain personal justice.
We have guided our clients and their families through the legal process with precision for over a decade and have procured record-setting verdicts for our clients — because that is what they deserve.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Georgia Shooting Deaths and Injuries?
At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our shooting death and injury lawyers in Georgia strive to provide actual results for real people who have been injured or lost their family members because of another party’s negligence.
When it comes to shooting deaths and injuries in Georgia, our personal injury attorneys must investigate who pulled the trigger, who owned the gun, where the incident occurred, and how and why it occurred.
In some cases, shooting injuries and fatalities are facilitated by negligence.
If a child finds a gun at a neighbor’s home and shoots himself, another child, or an adult with the firearm, the gun owner may be found negligent for the incident because he or she did not secure the gun.
If a resident or visitor is shot during a robbery at an apartment complex, after several robberies had been reported in the same parking lot/area before the latest incident, the property owner may be held liable for the victim’s damages for failing to provide the proper security to help others avoid a foreseeable occurrence.
If another third party, including bar owners or event organizers, fails to provide adequate security measures or is otherwise negligent in protecting those on their premises by taking reasonable precautions to protect individuals from harm, they may be held liable for the shooting and the resulting damages.
Shooting incidents that may involve third-party negligence may also occur in various settings that include:
- Concerts, festivals, or public events with inadequate security planning or emergency response procedures.
- Schools, colleges, or other educational institutions with insufficient security protocols or training.
- Shopping centers, malls, gas stations, and convenient stores with insufficient surveillance or security personnel.
- Apartment complexes lacking security and monitoring protocols.
