Stun Gun Injuries

Stun guns and other electroshock weapons are most commonly used today by law enforcement officers in order to apprehend suspects. Stun guns deliver a short and powerful electric shock to an individual, rendering him or her incapacitated enough to be apprehended. While stun guns are generally thought to be a relatively safe way to subdue a dangerous person, electroshock weapons can be very dangerous if used improperly.

Stun guns can be very painful, regardless of proper or improper use, and in some cases may prove fatal if used incorrectly. If you or someone you know has been injured due to the reckless use of a stun gun or other electroshock weapon, you may qualify for compensation.

Potential Injuries from a Stun Gun

Stun guns are intended to deliver an intense, yet nonlethal, electric shock. If used incorrectly, people can have adverse reactions to the weapon. Common injuries that result from an electroshock weapon include:

  • Electrical burns
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Heart palpitations
  • Nerve damage

Stun guns should always be used responsibly by a qualified person. Unfortunately, many people acquire electroshock weapons and use them improperly, causing severe injuries to others.
