Connecticut Camping Injury Attorney

camping injuries

Camping is a popular pastime for many Americans who enjoy “getting away from it all.” Once you’re in the woods, however, you need your camping gear to work properly. A defect may cause serious injuries, including infection, broken limbs, or other harm – injuries that may be especially problematic if you’re miles from help.

Some camping gear that may conceal hidden defects includes:

  • Blankets: even flame-resistant blankets may catch fire if placed too close to a campfire, stove, or lantern.
  • Outdoor lanterns and stoves: Often, faulty wiring or mechanical failures inside the lanterns or stoves cause them to catch on fire.
  • Heating and cooling packs: This type of product has been known to spring leaks, spilling dangerous chemicals on people.
  • Tents and sleeping bags: Like blankets, these can be flammable when defective.
  • Climbing gear: With defective climbing gear, a person can suffer very serious injury.
