A defective crossbow lacking necessary guards


In Pennsylvania, many people anxiously await the arrival of fall and the beginning of archery hunting season. These hunters and their companions deserve to pursue their sport with safe equipment. Yet, there are all too many defective crossbows, recurve bows, compound bows and arrows sold.

For example:

It is easy to see that, unfortunately, many of the crossbows, recurve bows, compound bows, and arrows sold should not have been on the market for sale. However, these products are not the only ones which have caused an injury or death to the unsuspecting users. When you or a loved one is injured or a wrongful death occurs due to a defective product and want to pursue a product liability case, you need an attorney who is experienced and skilled in this field of law.

A product liability case which is a case in which the manufacturer or seller has sold a product with a defect which causes injury to a person. Investigating and pursuing a product liability case requires expertise as well as an understanding of the manner in which the particular product is expected to work. The manufacturer or seller can be found to have sold a bow without a proper thumb guard thereby failing to provide the safety mechanisms that a user would expect. A bow or arrow may also be defective because of a failure to warn of its particular dangers. A manufacturer or seller may also be liable for breaching the warranties that the bow or arrow will perform as safely as those of other manufacturers or sellers or even for the content of their advertisements of the bows or arrows.
