Wichita Hunting Accidents Attorney

Put 75+ Years of Combined Experience

Within designated official wildlife areas, hunting grounds, and on private property, many Americans with the correct permits or licenses enjoy hunting for recreation. It is expected for anyone who takes up a shotgun, rifle, or other hunting firearm to know general safety provisions for his or her own safety and the safety of others around them. Indeed, in order to obtain a hunting license in the United States, all hunters must complete a Hunter Education Training Course, which may vary slightly between states.

Four of the firearm safety rules that every hunter should know and never disobey include:

  1. Any firearm must be handled as if it was loaded with live ammunition, even when the hunter knows confidently that it is not.
  2. The muzzle of any firearm must never be pointed at anything that the hunter does not wish to shoot.
  3. Never discharge a firearm at a target without being sure that is the correct target and that nothing lies behind it that could be shot due to a missed shot, bullet penetration, or ricochet.
  4. A hunter will never place any finger on the trigger until he or she is absolutely ready to pull the trigger and discharge the firearm.
We were very well taken care of.

Causes of Hunting Accidents

A hunting accident claim must prove that liability lies in the hands of the defendant. Our Wichita hunting accident lawyers have the legal experience – our firm was first founded in 1979 – necessary to thoroughly examine the details of your claim and pinpoint liability. Our objective is uncovering all the faults of the defendant so you are found to be 0% liable, entitling you to 100% of recovery amounts.

A hunting accident could be caused by an inexperienced, reckless, or negligent hunter:

  • Mishandling their shotgun, rifle, or other weapon.
  • Failing to check their surroundings before firing a shot.
  • Misjudging the influence of wind on a projectile.
  • Failing to give guests appropriate safety gear and brightly-colored vest.

Statistically, the majority of hunting accidents are actually caused by hunters negligently discharging a shotgun. A hunter with a buckshot shell loaded into a shotgun may fail to accurately understand how the buckshot will spread as the projectile travels, striking other hunters adjacent to the target animal. If you or a loved one were harmed by another hunter wielding a shotgun, we may be able to use the commonality of the event to your advantage when disproving or minimizing your liability.

When the safety measures taught are ignored, people can be seriously injured or killed in a hunting accident. At Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC, we believe that every permitted resident should be able to go hunting without fear of harm caused by other outdoorsmen who act negligently with their shotguns, rifles, and other firearms.

When something goes wrong and there is a hunting accident, our Wichita hunting accident attorneys are here to help the injured and their families seek peace of mind, justice, and fair compensation through an injury claim. By holding reckless hunters accountable for the harm they cause to others, we hope to help ensure that no such similar accident happens again.
