What is Product Liability?
Manufacturers have an obligation to make sure that the products they release on the market are reasonably safe and free of known hazards or defects that could result in injury or death. If the product is shown to risk causing severe or life-threatening injuries, the manufacturer must publish these risks on the warning label or package to inform consumers. If a manufacturer neglects to follow this protocol and issue warnings pertaining to the potential dangers of a product, it may be held responsible and those injured may seek compensation for damages caused by the product.
A Colorado product liability attorney may be able to help you determine if more than one party is responsible for your injuries such as the designer, supplier, retailer, or manufacturer. Any product that is available for purchase can potentially have defects, including lights, appliances, trains, airplanes, boats, vehicles, medical devices, medications, drugs, child or infant safety seats, high chairs, cribs, and more.
Many of the deaths that occur due to defective products could have been otherwise avoided if the manufacturer had warned of the potential for complications. Individuals who have been injured may be able to work with a Colorado product liability attorney to file a product liability lawsuit against those responsible for the damages or losses.
Additionally, if your family is grieving the loss of a loved one following his or her wrongful death as a result of strangulation, electrical shock, fire, or one of many other injuries that can stem from a defective product, a Colorado product liability lawyer can assist you in filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
How a Colorado Product Liability Attorney Can Help
Product makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a product maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by defective products may be eligible to recover money for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
The families of those killed may be eligible to recover money for funeral expenses and the pain that comes with losing a loved one.
