Product Liability Attorneys in Denver

Denver Product Liability AttorneysWhen a consumer picks up a product from a store shelf and takes it home, there is an inherent assumption of safety. The consumer trusts this product will not hurt them if it is used as instructed. But all too often, that trust is betrayed.

Defective and dangerous products cause thousands of injuries to people and property in the United States every year. In 2015, for example, defective baby products sent nearly 70,000 children under five to the emergency room.

Product liability refers to the law that governs the liability of designers and manufacturers and others, such as suppliers, distributors, and retailers, for injuries to a consumer or a business caused by a defective or dangerous product. Designers and manufacturers generally have more insight and knowledge about their products than consumers do, so it falls to the designer or manufacturer to assume financial responsibility for any injuries or damage they cause.

When a consumer picks up a product from a store shelf and takes it home, there is an inherent assumption of safety. The consumer trusts this product will not hurt them if it is used as instructed. But all too often, that trust is betrayed. When consumers get hurt, the responsible parties need to be held accountable.

Defects can come in almost any form, but they all fall into one of three general categories:

  • Design defects: These defects arise when a manufacturer designs a product that makes it inherently dangerous. Design defect claims are independent of the manufacturing process. Cars, recreational equipment, consumer products, pharmaceuticals, and heavy equipment, are just a few of the products that hit the market with bad designs. These defects often lead to a safety recall by the manufacturer or regulators.
  • Manufacturing defects: These flaws are a result of the manufacturing process. Manufacturing defects typically affect just a few of the company’s products. For example, a food processing plant that fails to properly clean or maintain its equipment can be held liable for contaminating a product – such as ice cream, juice, or produce – with deadly bacteria.
  • Failure-to-warn defects: Manufacturers and sellers can also be held liable when they fail to warn buyers or consumers that their products can be inherently dangerous. This failure-to-warn of defects can cause a product to be unreasonably dangerous. Consumers are used to seeing product warnings on nearly everything they buy. Vehicles, recreational equipment, baby products, toys, pharmaceuticals, and other consumer products pose dangers that can lead to serious injury or death. (See alsofraud).
