Minnesota is a beautiful state to go hunting in during the fall, so the woods are filled with hunters attaching deer stands to trees. Deer stands are an effective way to blend into the surroundings, while also receiving a bird’s eye view of the surrounding woods so that deer can be easily seen and the kill shot can be easily achieved.
Unfortunately, some deer stands are the subjects of faulty manufacturing, which means that they can malfunction while they are in use. If the safety harness breaks or it comes loose, head injuries, paralysis, and even death can occur from the fall. If that has happened to you, you need a Minneapolis product liability lawyer to pursue compensation for you.
Deer Stand Defects
We have represented hunters who have been involved in deer stand accidents that have been the result of device failure. This failure is in regards to poor design or manufacturing defects. There are other instances in which the design was not the issue. Instead, the poor quality materials led to the accident. We make sure that manufacturers are held accountable when they use shortcuts to get a product on the market as soon as possible.
Improper warnings and instructions can also be responsible for accidents. The stand may be made out of solid materials and it may even be designed carefully, but the manufacturer has a duty to provide users with instructions that are written carefully and accurately. If the instructions do not clearly state how the deer stand needs to be set up, then the manufacturer can be held responsible for an accident. Not even stating the hazards associated with the assembly or use of the stand is also a liability for the manufacturer.
