Hunting Accidents: Staying Smart, Staying Safe

Hunting is a wonderful activity, whether you enjoy solitude in nature or use it as an opportunity to bond with friends and loved ones. In many families, hunting is part of the values that are passed down through the generations.

But hunting also has its risks, particularly when negligent people have their hands near the trigger. If you or a loved one has been injured in a hunting accident, it is in your best interest to explore the legal options available to you. This includes pursuing a personal injury claim to recover financial compensation for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

Accidents happen, but negligence is a different story. When the basics — "alcohol and guns don't mix" — are ignored, people can have their lives changed forever in the blink of an eye. Attorney Chadwick McGrady takes on hunting accident cases stemming from:

  • Misidentifying a target
  • Failure to adhere to accepted hunting safety measures
  • Alcohol-related negligence
  • Defective firearms and bows and related equipment such as muzzle loaders
  • Failure to safely maintain equipment
  • Defective equipment such as tree stands

Whether the responsibility lies at the feet of fellow hunters, product manufacturers or strangers from another party, the lawsuit will be seeking compensation from the corresponding insurance companies.

Why is this important? You do not have to worry about going after a friend, family member or anyone else you'd be uncomfortable suing. You can hold the insurance company accountable and make sure you do not suffer financial ruin as a result of another's negligence.
