An Alabama man has sued Big Game Treestands, alleging the manufacturer sold a defective product that caused him permanent injuries.
Jason Phillips purchased a tree stand in 2015, around the same time that Big Game Treestands recalled three of its models, citing the risk of a fall hazard when its cable assembly could “release.” The recall affected more than 12,000 stands sold to consumers during a one-year period. In 2020, Mr. Phillips was attempting to climb into his stand when the cable snapped, sending him plummeting to the ground from a height of at least 20 feet.
The injuries he suffered from the fall were compounded by loss of employment compensation, diminished quality of life, and mental anguish, according to the Complaint filed by Johnson//Becker attorneys. Big Game Treestands failed to properly test its product, Mr. Phillips alleges, and “failed to disclose to users… that the… treestand was defectively and/or unreasonably designed, thereby making it dangerous to use.”
The lawsuit is filed in Minnesota, where Big Game Treestands is headquartered.
