Defective Products and Vehicles

Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

Our lives are made easier due to countless manufactured products used in our everyday lives. Cars, medication, and appliances are just a few of the convenience items we often take for granted. While motor vehicles and other products are designed to enhance our lives, unsafe or defective products can lead to serious injury or death. Fortunately, product liability laws are in place to protect consumers from harm due to the negligence of product manufacturers. If you have lost a loved one or suffered injuries due to a defective product or vehicle defect, you may be entitled to recover damages from the product manufacturer or seller for your losses. It is important to consult a Colorado defective product attorney with expertise in product liability claims as soon as possible in order to file a claim within Colorado’s statute of limitations.

Defective Products Overview

If you have been injured in a car accident, a negligent driver may not be the only one at fault. Motor vehicle defects including faulty air bags, tires, and seat belts are the cause of many car accident injuries. When a consumer is injured due to product defects, the responsible party may be held liable for resulting damages under Colorado product liability laws.

Most defective products are the result of negligence in the design, manufacturing, or distribution of a product. Design defects may include air bags with poorly designed sensors while manufacturing defects include products assembled with missing pieces. Absent or inadequate warning labels are another common cause of serious injuries from vehicle defects and other product defects.

Common Vehicle Defects and other Defective Products

While manufacturers may recall vehicles or other products found to be defective, many product defects are caught too late – after someone has been seriously injured or killed. Some common vehicle defects and other defective products include:

  • Inadvertent or late deployment of air bags
  • Failure of airbags to deploy in an accident
  • False latching seat belts and other seat belt defects
  • Tread separation and other tire defects
  • Missing warning labels or inadequate warnings
  • Defective drugs
  • Defective medical equipment, including implants and prostheses

Injuries Resulting from Vehicle Defect and Other Defective Products

Motor vehicle defects and defects in other products can lead to serious injuries including:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Whiplash
  • Back and Other Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Wrongful Death

What to do after a Motor Vehicle Defect or Other Defective Product Injury

Depending upon the type of product that caused your injuries, you may be able to file a product liability claim against the responsible party for negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty. Product liability law can be complicated, so it is imperative to contact a Colorado defective products attorney to determine your options for filing a claim.
