Dangerous and Defective Products Liability
Denver injury attorneys: champions of the people
Manufacturers, distributors and sellers of products to the public have a responsibility to deliver products free of harmful defects. If a product is defective or unreasonably dangerous, the sellers must compensate those who are injured by its use. Over the years, product defects have been found in automobile tires, brakes or safety design, baby food, bottles of beer, and children's pajamas. Some products are defective because they lack proper labels warning of dangers known to the manufacturer or seller but not obvious to the consumer. Examples include some permanent hair care kits, certain children’s toys and various drugs. The key element in product liability law is that a person who suffers harm does not need to prove that anyone acted negligently. It is sufficient to prove either that the product was unreasonably dangerous or defective, or that a proper warning was not provided.
An injured person usually needs to sue only the seller who may then bring the manufacturer or distributor into the lawsuit. However, all known parties who may be responsible should be named in the suit as defendants.
