Police-lightsThe Aspen Post reports that a woman has filed a civil claim against the Roaring Fork Transportation Authority as well as a bus driver following the death of her adult daughter in a public transportation accident. The daughter, who was walking in the bus lane in the early hours of the morning on New Years Day, was struck from behind by a bus, causing the windshield of the bus to shatter. The woman was dragged by the bus, and died as a result of the accident. The mother is seeking close to $500,000 in the claim, hoping to recover compensation for funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship. Have you or a loved one been injured in a public transportation accident? Contact an experienced Colorado public transportation accident attorney immediately; time is often of the essence. When filing a claim against a government agency such as a public transportation district, the statute of limitations is generally significantly shorter than it would be when filing a civil claim against a private person or company. For this reason, acting as quickly as possible to protect your rights is vital. While it is unusual for a government agency to be found responsible for injuring a person, when this does happen, you don’t want to lose your rights. No one should have to suffer financial hardship on top of physical injury because of the negligent actions of a government agency or a government employee. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneyContact the dedicated Denver public transportation accident attorneys at Fuller Law today if you or a loved one have been seriously injured in a bus accident.

Liberty Mountain has recalled the Easy Go XP Lock Via Ferrata Lanyards, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The lanyard features elastic webbing which, it has been determined, may deteriorate over time, putting climbers at risk of falls that may cause injury or death while using the product. No injuries have been reported, however the potential for serious injury is severe. People who have this product should stop using it immediately, and get in touch with Liberty Mountain for a replacement or refund. The CPSC is a federal agency charged with ensuring the reasonable safety of consumer products in the United States. In most cases, the company whose product is being recalled cooperates with the CPSC, particularly in cases where the potential for serious injury or death is high. Have you or a loved one been seriously injured by a defective consumer product? Contact an experienced Denver product liability attorney today to discuss your options. We hear about product liability lawsuits every day, but many people don’t truly understand what the phrase “product liability” means. In simple terms, companies that manufacture consumer products have a legal responsibility to ensure the reasonable safety of those products. In some cases, and a climbing lanyard is a good example of one, a product may be designed to be used during an activity that carries inherent risk. In other words, anyone could be seriously injured while rock climbing, regardless of the equipment used. In these cases, the manufacturer has to create a product that is reasonably safe when it is used as intended. It also must be reasonably difficult to accidentally use incorrectly. If a defect in design or manufacture, or a failure to warn of potential danger, causes injury or death, then the manufacturer may be liable for the damages suffered by consumers. john-fuller-personal-injury-attorneyCall Denver product liability attorney John Fuller today if you or a family member have been seriously injured by a defective consumer product. While most people probably don’t regularly check the CPSC website, if you have been seriously injured by a product that you believe you were using correctly, John can help you look into whether there was negligence by the manufacture.
