Can You File a Claim for Compensation after an Injury by a Barnett Outdoors, LLC Crossbow?


Hunting is an incredibly popular past time and sport in the United States. The method in which a hunter chooses to engage in the sport can vary, with crossbow hunting being a favored tool for many outdoorspeople. According to the Archery Trade Association (ATA), in 2021, there were approximately 3.7 million bow hunters throughout the United States.

In New Jersey, there are around 88,707 hunters, and 77,175 enjoy hunting deer. Of the deer hunters in New Jersey, 59% used a crossbow. New Jersey has the highest percentage of deer that are hunted and killed with archery equipment.

In Pennsylvania, there are 646,000 deer hunters making Pennsylvania only second in the nation for deer hunting. Pennsylvania has the most deer hunters per square mile. Out of all of these deer hunters, 331,000 used a crossbow. Archery is responsible for 35% of the total deer harvest for the Keystone State.

Barnett Outdoors, LLC Crossbow Lawsuits

 The Barnett Outdoors, LLC crossbow models that are in question include:

  • Jackal
  • Penetrator
  • Wildcat C5
  • Buck Commander

Each of these crossbows lacked a finger and thumb guard, leading to the serious thumb and finger injuries to the hunters that used them.

Most manufacturers of crossbows make sure to include finger and thumb guards in the design and manufacturing of their gear. On these specific models, Barnett Outdoors, LLC did not. And, after these models without a guard were distributed to consumers, Barnett Outdoors, LLC did not issue a recall despite changing the design to add a guard. As a result, the company has been found to be negligent.

Many consumers who bought the defective product may not even know that they are in danger. Individuals who were harmed because of the lack of a finger and thumb guard may not know that they could be entitled to compensation.
