A Monroe County man has filed suit against the owner of a deer stand that he claims collapsed under him as he was standing on it.
Norman R. Schneider claims he was positioned in a deer stand on property owned by defendants Jeffrey P. Fay and George P. Fay on Nov. 13, 2010, when the stand collapsed and fell to the ground.
Because of the incident, Schneider sustained serious personal injuries, was hindered from attending to his usual duties and affairs, lost wages, sustained a great deal of pain and anguish and incurred medical costs, according to the complaint filed Nov. 9 in Madison County Circuit Court.
Schneider blames the Fays for causing his injuries, saying they negligently allowed the deer stand to remain on their property despite its dilapidated condition, maintained an unreasonably dangerous deer stand and failed to inspect the deer stand.
Schneider is seeking damages of more than $50,000, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
Clay B. St. Clair and Anthony P. Gilbreth of Crowder and Scoggins in Columbia will be representing him.
Madison County Circuit Court case number: 12-L-1836.
