What if the person who shot me was a member of my own hunting party?

A member of your own hunting party could still be liable for negligence if he or she made a careless mistake that lead to the accident. In fact, many accidental shooting claims involve people who were hunting together or target shooting together. In most cases, the hunter’s insurance policy will cover your damages, so you should not be concerned about bringing a claim against a friend.
