By Dave Hurteau
From The Southeast Texas Record:
[Texarkana hunter] Dustin Stringer [has] filed a product liability lawsuit against Ameristep Corp.
Stringer states that on Sept 28, 2008, while climbing into his deer stand that he caught his right arm on a Grizzly Tree Step causing "serious and permanent injuries."
The complaint alleges the tree step was in a defective condition, which "rendered it unreasonably dangerous even though it was being used for its intended purpose."
Stringer alleges the defendant is liable for "designing and manufacturing a step that created a safety hazard and/or danger and a failure and/or to provide adequate warnings regarding use of the step. . . ."
