Understanding Product Liability
Product liability laws hold the seller or producer responsible for any injury caused by a defective, faulty, or dangerous consumer product. In the State of Colorado, the manufacturer or seller of a faulty product will be held strictly liable for injuries to consumers. Such defects are a result of design, marketing, or manufacturing.
Types of Product Defects
In a Colorado product liability claim, a claimant may assert any of the following types of product defects:
Design Defect: A design defect is a defect that exists in the product's design, making it unsafe or dangerous for the consumer. Even when the product is correct, an inherent design flaw can expose the user to possible injuries or danger.
Manufacturing Defects: A manufacturing defect is a defect that occurs while manufacturing or producing a consumer item. Such an imperfection during the manufacturing phase can automatically make an item unsafe or dangerous for the user.
Failure to Warn (Marketing Defects): When manufacturers do not label properly or provide instruction with their products, they may be practicing failure to warn. A product liability claim is based on insufficient instructions, inadequate safety warnings, or improper labeling.
A knowledgeable attorney can review all of the facts of your unique situation, help determine liability, and explore your options to file a product liability claim.
To succeed in your products liability claim, you must prove negligence by showing that:
The at-fault party manufactured, designed, distributed, or sold a faulty or unsafe product.
The product contained the defect when it left the defendant's possession.
You used or operated the product in a reasonably foreseeable manner.
You suffered actual harm or bodily injury due to the product's defect.
A skilled attorney can help prove negligence and enlighten you about your options to file a product liability claim.
Filing a Claim
To recover damages, the product liability victim can:
File a claim with insurance.
File a third-party claim against the insurance company of the at-fault party (manufacture or seller).
File a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver in civil court.
An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate all of the facts of a situation, enlighten you about the time limit for filing, and decide the best way to proceed with your product liability claims.
Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for a product liability claim in Colorado is two years from the date of the accident, injury, or discovery of an injury. However, there are some exceptions to the time limit for filing, depending on the surrounding circumstances. Consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to understand your available damages and ensure that you meet your deadline.

Medical expenses, including future medical bills.
Lost wages/income and benefits.

An experienced attorney can review every detail of your case and fight diligently to pursue the financial justice that you deserve.
