According to CBS Denver a mother had to cut a seat belt off her child to keep her from strangling to death after the seat belt malfunctioned. The mother strapped her child in the back seat and when she had returned to the car her child was wrapped in two seat belts and was unconscious. The woman had to rush into the nearby school and get a pair of scissors. The mother said that when she had tried to pull the seat belt back to get her child’s head and neck loose but it did not work, but instead the seat belt continued to tighten around the girls neck. According to the news report this is not a rare incident but a common occurrence, common not only among young children but also among older children and teens. Have you been seriously injured by a malfunctioning product that you commonly use? Contact a Denver product liability lawyer to see if you are entitled to financial compensation. The Automotive Safety Program reports seat belt strangulation is not an uncommon occurrence.  It is a common concern among many consumers, the frequency of a recalls for seat belts. Often a redesign of seat belts is suggested to fix this problem permanently. However, car companies believe that to fix this problem it is necessary to teach and educate parents on how to properly monitor children when they are in a vehicle. The ASP finds that what is causing children to become strangled in the safety belts is an interlocking mechanism. This is designed that when a sudden force is placed on the belt it will lock up to prevent a person from being ejected from the seat. However, what is currently happening is that children are pulling on the belt and causing the locking system to engage when the belt is around their neck. Then since it is not the same force of a car accident the belts continue to stay locked and retract the belt. It is this retraction process that is causing the children to strangle as the belt tightens. ASP believes that if parents don’t leave their children unattended in cars and maintained supervision over them that the children would not be able to get themselves in the dangerous situation of a being strangled by safety belts.

CBS4Denver.com has reported that a “wrongful death lawsuit was filed in Denver Wednesday by relatives of a Denver family killed on Thanksgiving Day in 2008 by leaking carbon monoxide.” The family was staying in a vacation home in Aspen at the time, part of a package deal they purchased in a charity auction for their kid’s school. Lawyers for the family allege that several people are responsible for the failures that contributed to their deaths, including the “owner of a plumbing company and two local building inspectors recently indicted in a separate criminal action.” The family hopes the lawsuit will prevent future deaths and will hold those accountable responsible. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that there are 15,000 emergency room visits and 500 deaths due to unintentional CO (carbon monoxide) poisoning in the US every year. The CDC reports that the symptoms most associated with CO poisoning are headaches, nausea, dizziness and mental confusion.

A Weld County man has been sentenced to prison for a December crash that killed his friend. The Denver Post is reporting that Bobby Lucero was sentenced to four years in prison for a DUI rollover accident that killed his friend London Burch. Authorities said that Lucero had a blood alcohol level of .177, more than twice the legal limit, when he crashed his Jeep. Burch was partially ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. Weld County District Court Judge Thomas Quammen sentenced Lucero Thursday and said he should have learned from his previous 1994 drinking and driving offense. The U.S. Department of Transportation defines alcohol-related deaths as “fatalities that occur in crashes where at least one driver or non-occupant involved in the crash has a positive Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) value.” According to Alcoholalert.com, between 2000 and 2008 there were 5,703 alcohol related fatalities in the state of Colorado. Unlike the average accident, when an accident includes a driver who was legally impaired during the crash, it is almost always immediately obvious who was negligent at the time of the collision. Typically injuries caused by drunk drivers are severe since drunk drivers often fail to apply their brakes prior to a collision as an unimpaired driver would almost defiantly do. If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver or a loved one was killed because someone decided to drive while ability impaired, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney experienced in defending victims of drunk driving crashes.
