Hunting season has begun in the state of Wisconsin and this means that accidents can occur more frequently. Research that was carried out by Gannett Wisconsin Media shows a link between young, inexperienced hunters and shooting accidents.
Hunting in Wisconsin is deeply rooted in tradition. The research shows that 18 percent of licensed hunters are 21-years-old or younger and are responsible for 27 percent of the shooting-related accidents that have occurred in the last decade. This equates to 337 accidents throughout Wisconsin.
Wisconsin hunting safety is at an all-time low and the state is below the national average for hunting-related accidents.
When these accidents do happen they can be severe or even fatal in some instances. Personal injuries occur all the time and if you were injured because of someone else you deserve to be compensated.
