Proving manufacturer liability in Colorado

Regardless of how careful a manufacturer is in producing a safe product, it may be liable for injuries sustained while using that product.

Distracted driving occurs when individuals take their hands off the wheel, eyes off the road or minds off handling the vehicle.

Reading and sending text messages is considered to be the most dangerous form of distraction since it requires the use of the mind, eyes and hands. Residents of Colorado should take note of the following statistics in order to be aware of what drivers should avoid doing.
