A product liability claim is a civil lawsuit that allows you to seek damages, or financial compensation, from a product manufacturer, distributor or retailer for injuries caused by a defective product. If a faulty or hazardous product injured you or a loved one, you may be eligible for monetary damages for your past and future related losses from the company that created or sold the item.
Colorado product liability laws typically do not require injured consumers to prove negligence. To make things more just for the little people when going up against powerful corporations, Colorado uses a strict product liability law. This law states that if it is proven that the item contained a defect and caused the victim’s injuries, the victim does not have to prove negligence. The three types of product defects are:
