Legal Help for Exposure to Dangerous & Defective Products
The vast majority of the products we use are safe and reliable. We use hundreds or even thousands of them on a daily basis and they enhance and help us with our lives. Electronic equipment, cars, body care and hygiene products, are all of great benefit to us as consumers. Unfortunately, if a product is defective and even dangerous, it can cause injuries that can last a lifetime or result in death. If you or someone dear to you has been exposed to and injured by a dangerous or defective product, such as a DePuy hip implant, a Denver personal injury lawyer from Andrus, Hood & Wagstaff can help.
Children can also become victims of consumer product defects or dangers from food, medicines or other items intended to treat and help them. Defective products containing harmful chemicals may sometimes cause even stronger effects when babies are the victims. This could be because their bodies are much smaller and thus they may be less tolerant to the poisonous substances.
Types of Product Defects
Products can be dangerous from defects in manufacturing, in the design of the product itself or from a failure to provide adequate consumer warning about dangers inherent in the product. Even a product that becomes defective before its warranty expires can be dangerous. Depending on the circumstances, the manufacturer or distributor of the product can be held accountable for the defect which resulted in injury. For example, if a drug manufacturer does not provide sufficient warning on a drug and it results in injury or death, that pharmaceutical company is liable.
If you believe that you or anyone in your family has been exposed to a defective or dangerous product that has resulted in injury, we are very interested in helping you to bring the offending company to justice, not only to compensate you, but to eliminate harmful and irresponsible dangers from product liability in the marketplace. We accept cases from Denver and surrounding areas, including Boulder, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
