Knowledgeable Denver Attorneys Assist People in Product Liability Cases
Respected Colorado law firm seeks compensation for clients injured by faulty consumer goods
When you purchase a product, you don’t expect it to harm you. However, injuries and even death from common household items, medications, medical devices and other products happen frequently. If you’ve been injured by a defective product, the skilled attorneys at the Law Offices of John D. Halepaska can advise you about your options for bringing a product liability legal claim. We also take on cases involving defective construction and building materials that cause injuries. Our firm serves clients in the states of Colorado, Illinois and Missouri.
Diligent lawyers take on makers and distributors of defective products
When a product malfunctions and causes injuries, a product liability lawsuit may be warranted. Liability for injuries might fall with product designers, manufacturers, distributors or, in some cases, more than one party might be found to be responsible. Companies can also be held liable if they fail to adequately label potentially dangerous products with suitable warnings and someone is injured. A wide variety of common products can be targets of legal claims, including:
- Defective household items such as electric blankets, garage door openers and leaking dishwashers — which can cause burns, head trauma and slip and falls. Additionally, toys with small parts that are not appropriately labeled can cause choking. These are just some examples of the dangers posed by defective or poorly labeled common products.
- Pharmaceuticals that aren’t properly tested or manufactured can cause organ damage, abnormal bleeding, strokes and more, prompting drug liability claims. Defective medical devices such as pacemakers and surgical equipment can sometimes cause more issues than they were intended to fix.
- Poorly designed or manufactured building and construction materials may contain cancer-causing chemicals, not be fire retardant or, if they are structurally unsound, could collapse on people.
There are many ways that everyday items can harm us. If you’ve been injured, our attorneys will stand up for your rights to compensation.
Dedicated firm helps injured clients and decedents’ families gain compensation
Defective products can cause severe harm, and when injuries or a wrongful death occur, victims and their families can sue to gain compensation for their damages. In wrongful death claims, some of the damages families of the deceased might ask for include wages the decedent may have earned, money for loss of companionship and love, funeral expenses and medical costs. We can advise you based on your individual circumstances and aim to hold the responsible party accountable.
