Defective Product Liability in Colorado
Product Recall/Defective Products
Government regulations on manufacturers that produce dangerous products often lack teeth and offer little more than a wrist slap. An experienced product liability lawyer can help individual citizens prosecute reckless or negligent manufacturers of defective or mislabeled products. This type of lawsuit is often the consumer’s most effective weapon against unreasonably dangerous products. If you or a loved one has been injured by the failure of a dangerous or defective product, a product liability lawyer at the Denver, Colorado-based personal injury law firm of Bachus & Schanker, LLC can help.
A product may be considered dangerous or defective for various reasons. The design of the product could be defective, thus making the entire line of products unreasonably dangerous, leading to a possible manufacturer’s recall. Another type of product liability stems from manufacturing defects, which can occur during the production process and affect only a small number of otherwise reasonably safe products. Additionally, a product can be unreasonably dangerous if appropriate warnings are absent. Any consumer product can be considered dangerous or defective, including motor vehicles, baby products, defective medical devices, and pharmaceutical products that are unreasonably dangerous when used appropriately.
Even if the product has not been subjected to a recall, consumers possess the power to file a claim for their injuries and damages. As a result, manufacturers are constantly working to pass laws to limit consumer rights. A knowledgeable product liability lawyer at Bachus & Schanker, LLC in Colorado can advise you of how to proceed in the event of an injury caused by a defective product. For example, we can advise that injured consumers preserve any potentially defective product. This is very important because the consumer may be left with no proof if the item is lost, and the possibility of a successful lawsuit could be diminished.
Defective Medical Devices
There are more than 100,000 medical device products on the market in the United States, including thermometers, implanted heart valves and pacemakers, blood sugar monitors, and dental braces. These products are used by thousands of people to treat illnesses and improve quality of life. Unfortunately, each year many consumers experience devastating injuries as a result of unsafe or defective medical devices. At Bachus & Schanker, LLC in Denver, Colorado, the defective product attorneys handle complex lawsuits for individuals injured by defective medical equipment and devices.
The medical device industry in America is a multi-billion dollar industry. However, because competition is so fierce, the quality of the medical device product often suffers in the rush to put the newest, most improved product on the market. This rush to the market often leads manufacturers to produce faulty products or design products that have significant errors or flaws. Additionally, insufficient warnings may fail to provide potential product users with important information about possible side effects of the product.
The Food and Drug Administration regulates these medical devices and recalls Defective Devices in order to protect the health and safety of the public. At our Colorado law firm, the defect product attorneys can file lawsuits to help injury victims.
