INJURED IN HUNTING ACCIDENT INSURANCE COVERAGE
Hunting in Minnesota is a very popular sport. In our own family, we have generations of hunters that love to go out together every year. Everyone understands the importance of safety while hunting. Nonetheless, accidents can happen.
Our lawyers have worked on a number of hunting accident cases. The first thought is someone accidentally shot while hunting. This does happen, and we have had several of those cases. However, our attorneys have represented people in a variety of other hunting accident situations as well. We had a gas explosion case from the heater in a camper. There have been several cases involving a defective deer stand. ATV accidents on hunting land are a risk, as is hitting a deer with your car.
In most cases, there is insurance coverage for a hunting accident injury. Even if you are shot in a hunting accident, the shooter’s homeowners insurance may provide coverage. Homeowners insurance covers personal liability regardless of whether the injury occurs at home. However, there are exclusions in every policy, so it will have to be read carefully. For example, family members who live together may be excluded.
