RECREATIONAL INCIDENTS LIABILITY INSURANCE AND JUDICIAL INTERPRETATION FOR FEE ACCESS ACTIVITIES ON NONINDUSTRIAL PRIVATE FOREST LANDS IN MISSISSIPPI
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Private landowners refrain to open their land for recreational users in the fear of potential liability. This study covered the extent of liability, actual bodily injuries and property damages sustained by hunters and anglers in Mississippi. In order to aid for comparison, the study was divided in two sections. First it examined the risk and liability in fee access recreation through the review of court cases from 1904 to 2005. Second study explored the extent of actual bodily injuries and property damages sustained by hunters and anglers in Mississippi during 2002/03 to 2004/05 using telephone survey. It was found that landowners won 68% of the legal cases even though they charged fees for recreational access. The study revealed that 1% respondents of the total sample had accidents and only 16.8% respondents had the liability insurance coverage.
