Nicholas Adams of Fort Campbell, Kentucky, is the second person this year to file a civil case against Taurus International for the gun manufacturer’s alleged defective trigger design, which reportedly caused Adams severe muscular damage. Adams’ lawsuit implies that the gun maker knew about the Taurus PT 24/7 Pro’s defect but didn’t adequately warn its consumers.
According to news sources, the alleged injury occurred in October 2014. Adams was stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, when his .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol fell off a shelf and discharged a round when it hit the ground. The discharged round reportedly hit Adams’ left hand and knee, causing him extensive bone, muscle and nerve damage.
