Dangers Associated with Hunting
There is always a risk of injury any time an activity involves high-powered guns and ammunition. One such activity is hunting. Every year, hundreds of thousands hunting licenses are sold to men, women, and children in the state of Wisconsin to authorize the legal hunting of a variety of animals. Hunting offers the following:
- A way to remain connected with one’s ancestors
- A way to obtain certain kinds of meat to feed one’s family
- An opportunity for the formation of lasting bonds among family and friends
Hunting accidents can quickly ruin one’s experience, potentially causing serious injuries or even death in the process. If you have been the victim of a hunter’s negligence, a civil lawsuit may be appropriate. The Wisconsin personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are prepared to fight for your legal rights and to get you the financial compensation you deserve.

The nature of the potential harm posed by a hunting accident depends upon the kind of hunting, the location of the hunt, and numerous other factors. Accidental shootings are the most common form of hunting accident. Over 100 people die every year in North America from these incidents. In order to stay safe while hunting, you should practice these safety tips:
- Always treat your gun like it is loaded
- Never hunt without telling someone where you are going
- Do not drink alcohol and hunt
- Dress appropriately: wearing enough clothing to protect you from the cold along with orange vests or hats to make yourself visible to other hunters.
Following the above safety measures will decrease your risk of suffering from a hunting-related accident. Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do to fully avoid becoming injured as a consequence of another party’s negligence.
If you have suffered harm at the hands of a negligent or reckless hunter, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills and other relevant damages. Contact the Wisconsin personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874.
