Hunting Accidents

Hunting is a common sport enjoyed by people worldwide. While hunting technology in America has rapidly increased one’s likelihood of success at catching game, it has also increased the possibilities for human injury. Despite campaigns for safer hunting practices, injuries and fatalities are still all too common.

If you or someone you know has been involved in a hunting accident caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses. Contact the Cincinnati hunting injury lawyer Stepleton Dugan, LLC by calling 513-321-7733 to discuss your grounds for a claim.

Potential Accidents

Most hunting accidents occur when people hunt in groups. The more people who are nearby, the more likely it is that one will suffer an injury. Camouflage can make it difficult to see if a fellow hunter is in your sites.

Self-inflicted hunting injuries are also fairly common. These can occur when a hunter is reloading his or her weapon, or if he or she is mishandling a loaded gun.

Accident Prevention

Wearing bright colors, such as a neon orange vest, will greatly reduce your chances of being accidentally fired at by a fellow hunter. Although this may seem counterintuitive while hunting, the truth is that many types of game are colorblind. Wearing brightly colored clothing will not increase their ability to detect your presence.

Additionally, everyone should exercise extreme caution when handling loaded weapons. Most hunting accidents could be prevented if operators would be more conscientious of the risk of injury.
