Barnett Outdoors Recalls Popular Crossbows Due to Serious Injuries
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A popular crossbow company has
recalled six different models of crossbows due to injury hazards. Barnett Outdoors
is recalling the crossbows due to a sensor malfunction that can cause
the crossbow to fire unexpectedly which poses a hazard to the user and
any bystanders. This recall affects around 3,300 crossbows that are identified
by model numbers which are printed on the riser limbs and dome labels
located on the bow. The company said that they have received three reports
of the crossbow firing unexpectedly which resulted in one hand laceration.
These crossbows were sold at Bass Pro Shops, Dicks Sporting Goods, Cabela’s
and other dealers and retailers from April 2016 through November 2016
between $800 and $1600. The company recommends consumers should stop using
the recalled crossbows and contact them directly for a replacement trigger
with a nock sensor for free.
Product liability laws are put in place to help protect consumers against
faulty products that cause injuries. Each year defective products send
thousands to the emergency room for injuries or illnesses. This can be
worrisome because many times companies don’t even know that there
is a problem with their products until complaints are made. Any time you
notice a defect or a problem you should contact the company directly to
report the issue. You should also contact a product liability lawyer if
you have been injured due to the product. An attorney can evaluate your
case and determine if you have grounds to file a claim against the company
who may be responsible for your injuries.

to assist those who have been injured due to faulty or defective products.
