Attorneys working for the complaintent work for a contingency fee. They only get paid if they win. If you are hit by another driver in traffic, the lawyer you get will get one-third of your recoveries if you win. If you loose, he will get nothing. If the the shooting takes place in a state without granted immunities, the BG or his family can hire an attorney for free. Their attorney will get his share if the family get theirs.
As I mentioned earlier, I used to work as an armed guard. During the gun certification course, our instructor, an ex DA, told us that almost one hundred percent of guard involved shooting end up in civil court. The person shot could have been the scum of the Earth with a mile long rap sheet. The guard will still have to face a civil case.
