Self-Defense Insurance

You injured or killed someone in self-defense. What happens next?
We see this scenario play out regularly across the country. A legally armed citizen uses a gun in self-defense, and then appears in court to prove that the legal requirements were met to justify using deadly force. When the court rules that the citizen complied with the law and is not guilty of any crime, life just goes on, right? NOT!

Most of us would probably say "I'll do what I have to do to protect myself, family and friends." But very few think of the aftermath, and consequences, of taking a life or severly injuring an attacker. When strapping on a firearm for self-protection, we must understand, and be prepared for, the ramifications of injuring or killing an attacker. Coping with the emotions, the media storm, Investigations, Charges and Lawsuits, Interaction with Attorneys and more are things we don't fully consider, but must before we wear a weapon. Are you truly prepared to take a life?

Self-Defense Insurance is available to help deal with the legal and financial impact after a self-defense action.
