Defective Deer Stands
There are many potential dangers associated with hunting. Hunters could burn themselves on their own guns or in a campfire, and there is always the risk of accidentally shooting another hunter. Another common hunting danger is falling from a deer stand if the structure is poorly made or if it malfunctions. Falling from a deer stand could have devastating consequences, especially if a hunter lands on his or her head, neck, or back.
If you have been injured because of a defective deer stand, you may be able to secure financial compensation to help pay for medical bills and lost wages. For more information, contact the Wisconsin personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
Deer Stand Safety
Because deer stands place hunters high off the ground – oftentimes as high as 18 or 20 feet – falling from one could cause painful and severe injuries like broken bones or serious neck and back injuries. Some helpful tips for staying safe in a deer stand include:
- Before using a deer stand, test it out to make sure it can hold the desired amount of equipment and weight.
- Remember to always use safety restraints.
- Try to always hunt with at least one other person. That way, he or she can help you in the event of a fall.
- Do not drink alcohol and hunt.
Unfortunately, even if you are perfectly safe while hunting, you may still suffer because of a defective product. In these instances, it is important that you fight for the compensation you need to pay for your accident-related losses.
