Hunting is one of the longest-held traditional past times in the United States and has evolved from a practice of necessity to a sport of leisure for many of those who engage in it. While solid training and education give hunters the tools they need to safely use their weapons without incident, accidents or negligence sometimes occur that may cause personal injury.

Causes of Hunting Accidents
Handling live firearms in the field with other people around can always end badly if proper care and safety precautions are not taken. Injuries may happen in the following circumstances:
- Unintended firing
- Peppering from shells fired at a near-vertical angle
- Failure to notice a fellow hunter due to camouflage
- Defective firearms
Gunshot wounds can be grievous injuries with serious consequences, and the medical costs of treating such injuries can be so substantial that they leave a family unable to keep pace with the essential cost of living.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a hunting accident caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you are likely entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and other damages.
