Tree stand injury accidents outnumber even gun injuries during hunting season. Deer hunting is popular, and deer hunters want every possible advantage to ensure a successful hunt. One such advantage is tree stands, sometimes referred to as “deer stands,” which hunters use to avoid detection. Tree stands reduce the hunter’s scent, remove them from a deer’s line of sight, and increase camouflage.
Using a deer stand also provides the utility of a higher vantage point and better shooting angle for the hunter. The elevated height is what makes tree stands so popular, but also what makes them extremely dangerous. Falls from these elevated heights can cause life-threatening injuries or even death.
Our attorneys at Monsees & Mayer, P.C. take pride in their ability to successfully represent hunters injured in tree stand accidents. In fact, Timothy Monsees, Bobby Thrasher and Reed Martens are experienced hunters themselves. They understand the sport, the equipment and the inherent risks. They use their knowledge and love of the sport to help injured hunters obtain the compensation they deserve.
