John Prew Wins 5 Minute Defense Verdict In Treestand Case

A jury in Chester County Pennsylvania recently took only five minutes to conclude that treestand was not defective in a product liability, serious injury case involving one of Harvey Kruse’s many national product liability clients. The plaintiff, who had fallen approximately 15 feet from his treestand argued that damage to the treestand platform was the cause of his fall. The defense argued that the physical damage was the result of the fall and not the cause of the fall, and submitted that the incident did not occur as the plaintiff claimed. The victory is the latest in a long line of favorable results for the Harvey Kruse national product liability team.
