Denver Product Liability Lawyer

Denver product liability lawyer

Dangerous and defective consumer products injure people quite frequently in Colorado. It can happen to anyone. Defective products are defined as any product that does not do what the manufacturer designed it to do. Even though the government puts regulations on manufacturers to prevent dangerous products from entering the marketplace, these rules are not effective in stopping all defective products from being sold to consumers. When consumers are injured or killed as a result of a defective or dangerous product, the victim or their family may be entitled to compensation from the product’s company or manufacturer.

WHEN ARE PRODUCTS CONSIDERED DANGEROUS?

There are a few ways that a product can be labeled as a danger to consumers. Sometimes the product itself is defective and other times the product is dangerous due to failure to warn or defective instructions. For example, the actual design of the product could be defective, meaning that the entire production line is dangerous and should be recalled by the manufacturer to prevent other consumers from being injured. In other cases, the danger is a result of manufacturing defects, which typically affect a smaller number of products and are a result of assembly line or human error. Remember, even if the product has already been recalled by the manufacturer because of a defect, consumers still have a right to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for any damages that the product has caused.

If you’re injured by using any defective consumer item, speak at once with an experienced Denver production liability lawyer at the Denver-based law firm of Norton and Bowers, P.C. Our attorneys represent victims in claims involving but not limited to:

  • Defective home tools and appliances

To recover compensation for your injury in a product liability case, the victim must have used the product as it was intended to be used.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU’RE INJURED BY A DEFECTIVE PRODUCT?

Safety should be your top priority if you are injured by a defective product. Seek immediate medical attention if you are seriously injured and call 911 if the product is still a serious threat and could harm others.

After you have received medical attention, begin to collect evidence for your case and contact an experienced Denver product liability lawyer at Norton and Bowers, P.C. Do not discard of the production  that injured you, however make sure that handling it or keeping it in your home will not put you at risk of further injury. If available, keep the instructions that came with the product and also the receipt that shows you purchased it. Take photographs of the damage and the production that caused harm. Do not alter the product in any way so that your lawyer can have a professional examine it.

In the days and weeks following the accident, keep track of any symptoms you may experience related to the injury. If your injury requires multiple doctor’s appointments, keep a record of all expenses that you have to pay and all time you have to take off of work so you can seek compensation.

COMPENSATION IN PRODUCT LIABILITY CASES

If you have been injured as a result of a dangerous or defective product, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the manufacturer.

Victims may receive economic damages which compensate you for medical expenses, loss of wages, property damages, impairment of your future ability to earn income, and any other expenses that have been incurred as a result of a defective product.

Noneconomic damages may also be a part of your settlement package. These damages will compensate you for any pain and suffering, grief, emotional anguish and inconvenience that you have experienced as a result of a defective product.

If the court believes that the manufacturer is at fault for your injury and acted egregiously, you may also be awarded punitive damages. These damages are used as a punishment and to prove to other manufacturers or companies that the court takes these situations seriously.

The amount and type of compensation that you receive may vary greatly depending on the details of your case. Work with the team of experienced product liability lawyers at Norton and Bowers, P.C. who will work tirelessly to recover the maximum compensation available to you.
