Tree Stand Injuries

Tree Stand

Injured From a Faulty Tree Stand? We Can Help

It's a beautiful morning. The leaves have changed and fallen, and your sightline is clear. You've waited all week to find time to climb up your tree stand and watch for game. Suddenly, the platform shifts and your tree stand falls away from you. You plummet to the ground in a crash of plastic, bolts, and straps.

Tree strands are a regular sight in the woods of Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. Many hunters prefer a higher vantage point when hunting, but might not realize the danger these stands can pose. Even a fall from just 6-8 ft. can be deadly.

If your tree stand was defective and caused you injury, you might have a case for compensation. If your tree stand came with incorrect instructions, the manufacturer might be liable for your injuries.

A fall from a tree stand could result in massive medical bills, missed time at work, and possibly permanent damage that could keep you from ever hunting again.

Make Sure You Act Quickly

There are certain time limits that may apply to your injury claim – also known as statutes of limitations. It's important to know the time frame for a tree stand accident claim, so that you don't wait too long.

Pennsylvania Statute of Limitations

Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.

A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.

However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.
