Cincinnati, Ohio Product Liability Lawyer and Gun Safety Attorney reviewing the defective Blackhawk gun holster recall and holster defect cases nationwide
Defective firearms have injured thousands of consumers in the last few decades, and the gun industry has largely escaped legal action. Americans, however, have a right to file lawsuits when a defective product is marketed and sold to the public.
Defective guns and defective holsters are extremely dangerous, and yet every year there are cases of accidental discharge and misfire accidents that claim American lives. Following any dropfire accident or accidental discharge injury, a victim may choose to contact a gun defect attorney and file a personal injury and product liability lawsuit against a gun manufacturer.
The recent Blackhawk gun holster recall involves over 3,000 T-Series L2C gun holsters. The gun holster defect is very hazardous to consumers as the holster design can potentially change the position of the gun safety switch on the firearm. If the trigger is pulled, the firearm can fire unexpectedly, leading to accidental discharge injuries.
The recall was announced by the CPSC in October 2019. The defective Blackhawk T-Series black gun holster is made of molded plastic material, and is reportedly defective in design. The holster is designed to be used with Sig Sauer handguns that clip onto the belt. “2101213 A” is printed on the recalled Blackhawk gun holsters.
The defective gun holsters were sold at Bass Pro Shops and other sporting goods stores, as well as online at www.blackhawk.com from June 2019 through August 2019. Consumers should stop using the defective Blackhawk holster and contact Blackhawk for a refund. In the event of an accidental discharge injury, contact a product liability lawyer to review your legal options.
In holster defect cases, and defective firearm lawsuits, companies like Federal Cartridge may be held accountable for failing to properly warn consumers of gun injury risks, and failing to test their products before selling them.
The Federal Cartridge gun holster recall was conducted voluntarily by the company, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) The CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products.
