Product Liability Protection Available in Colorado
Defective products cause nearly 30 million injuries each year. (Source: U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.) Countless items are connected to product liability in a wide array of injuries. Consumers can be injured or killed by products they use or ingest, leading to thousands of product liability claims every year. The cost incurred by manufacturers for injuries, deaths, and damages caused by their defective products can exceed $500 billion annually!
When a defective product is allowed into the market, and then causes death and/or injury to consumers, then product liability protection comes into play. Even isolated incidents of defective products can be cause for a claim against the manufacturer.
If you (or someone you care about) have been recently injured by a product, there are three categories of product liability cases. These include defective product design, defective product manufacturing, and failure and negligence to warn of product defect.
By hiring an effective product liability attorney, you’ll be guided through the process of understanding these types of claims. The fault can lie with the product designer, product manufacturer, or a sales or retail outfit that is aware of a product defect yet still continues to offer it to consumers.
A product liability lawyer will seek payment for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and living costs associated with your claim. Reaching a fair settlement and simply getting your claim properly processed is of utmost importance. Don’t just accept an offer directly from a manufacturer; you can’t re-open your case after you accept a settlement.
