Hunting Accident Claims Life, Settlement Confidential

Litigation Type - Wrongful Death Accidents

Client Injury - Death

Our client’s husband was hunting coyotes in North Dakota with his friends in February. A member of his hunting party took a shot at a coyote without knowing where all the members of the hunting party were located. He accidently shot our client in the leg. Unfortunately because the snow cover was so heavy, he died before his colleagues could reach him in the deep snow.

Jeff Sieben filed a claim against the party that accidently but negligently shot our client’s husband and was able to obtain a settlement from the shooter’s homeowner’s insurance policy.

This case is a very sad lesson to reinforce one of the most basic rules of hunting safety; before shooting, clearly identify your target and what (or who) is beyond it.
