Hunting Accidents

Many people enjoy the challenge of hunting and go out every year during open season to try their luck. While thousands of hunters across the country participate without injury, each year some people are injured in hunting accident that could have been avoided. When these accidents involve a gun, bow, or other lethal weapon, the results can be tragic. If you or a loved one has been injured in a hunting accident, someone else may be liable and you may be able to sue for your injuries.

Causes of Hunting Accidents

Negligent individuals or companies are responsible for causing hunting accidents every year. Some possible causes of hunting accidents include:

  • Gun or bow misfire
  • Deer blind defect
  • Deer stand collapse
  • Accidental shooting
  • Defective safety equipment
  • Because hunters or bystanders are often injured in reserves or parks, getting emergency medical attention after a hunting accident can be difficult. Even a relatively minor injury can become a serious health risk if it is not treated immediately.
