Hunting accidents don’t always happen by accident. Sometimes they happen because people do things they know are unsafe. If you or someone you love was injured by someone else’s negligence while hunting, you may have the right to seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and other losses.

Strong, Capable Representation For Hunters And Their Families
Many hunting accidents involve negligence. Here are a few examples:
- Gunshot injuries: Most gunshot injuries involve members of the same hunting party who are in close proximity at the time of the accident. Examples include accidental discharge when crossing a fence, tripping or handing a weapon to another person. Sometimes hunters are quick to fire at anything that moves and they mistake a person for game. In many cases, alcohol is a factor. Damages in these cases are often covered by the negligent hunter’s homeowners insurance.
- Defective deer stands: Hunters can suffer devastating injuries when a deer stand buckles or breaks while a hunter is in it. These accidents may be caused by poor design, defective parts or inadequate safety warnings. In these cases, the manufacturer, distributor and even the store that sold the deer stand may be liable.
- Defective firearms: Guns with design or manufacturing defects such as the Remington 700 are accidents waiting to happen. The manufacturer, distributor and even the store that sold the gun may be liable.
- ATV injuries: Accidents involving all-terrain vehicles are unfortunately common on hunting trips. If the accident was caused by a design or manufacturing defect, the manufacturer of the ATV may be liable. If the accident was caused by a careless operator, his or her homeowners insurance may pay for your losses.
