Our firm recently filed a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of a tree stand. In this case, we represent a young man from North Carolina who suffered severe back injuries when the ratchet strap on the tree stand broke causing the tree stand and this young man to fall from the tree to the ground. The hunting tree stand was purchased from Wal-Mart. Tragically, this particular tree stand was subject to a recall because of the defective strap. However, it was still being sold at the time of the accident.
When reviewing and investigating the claim on behalf of our client, we identified other lawsuits where the manufacturer of the tree stand was sued following a failure identical to our client’s fall. One of those incidents occurred in Alabama. Through that litigation we discovered the straps for the tree stand were made by a Chinese manufacturer. The straps were not properly tested and this failure to test most likely contributed to the tree stand failures.
The company filed bankruptcy, but has since emerged from it and is still in the business of manufacturing and selling tree stands. Our client used to be a brick mason, but as a result of his injuries he can no longer work. Our client is married and has children. His life has been forever changed because of corporate irresponsibility. Kendall Dunson from our firm will be the lead lawyer in this case.
