Venus Williams Files Court Protective Order in Wrongful Death Accident: Tennis star Venus Williams is being sued for wrongful death following a car accident in which another driver was tragically killed.

Do I Need a Lawyer If Someone Injured My Child?: What should you do if your child is injured and it’s someone else’s fault? Even it was not a purposeful injury, medical attention is not cheap and you should not have to pay for it. There are several situations where you should consider filing a personal injury lawsuit for the injuries of your child. Children are susceptible to injuries in a number of ways. When a Child’s Injury Could Need Legal Action Defective products: Many children’s toys and other products can cause serious health problems. Toys can cause choking hazards, which legally need to be labeled as hazardous. Another recent liability case involves crushing accidents from millions of IKEA MALM dressers, prone to falling over. Many dangerous children’s products are not recalled until consumer complaints and lawsuits are filed against the designers and manufacturers. Premises liability: Was your child injured on a poorly maintained playground or park area? The city...

Why Are Cosmetics So Unregulated in the US?: You may be surprised to find out that hair and skincare products in the US are much more unregulated than they are in other parts of the developed world. Our country has thousands of regulations for almost every industry, but somehow the cosmetics industry seems to have slipped through the seams. The US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) bans 11 ingredients from usage, while Canada bans 587, the European Union bans 1,328. This is a quote from the FDA’s website regarding cosmetics, “Under U.S. law, cosmetic products and ingredients, other than color additives, do not need FDA approval before they go on the market.” This is alarming, but product safety laws still apply to cosmetics when they are dangerous. Examples of Cosmetics Liability Cases Johnson & Johnson, a leading producer of talcum baby powder, was recently ordered by a court to pay $110.5 million to a Virginia woman after research...

Metier July 2017 Legal Newsletter: The Courts in Colorado looked at a few procedural questions these past few weeks. In one case, it was the long-arm statute and what determines the required minimum contacts, and in another, whether a finalized settlement can be reopened because of mutual mistake. In other cases involving injured parties, the Colorado Supreme Court examined the duty of a dog owner in very specific circumstances, and how to sort out the responsibilities of multiple tortfeasors. What Kind of Minimum Contacts Will Satisfy Colorado’s Long-Arm Statute and Permit Personal Jurisdiction Over a Non-Resident Defendant? The Colorado Court of Appeals examined that question in Rome v. Reyes, (2017 COA 84). In this case, Gerald Rome, the Securities Commissioner for the State of Colorado (“Rome”) is appealing the district court’s dismissal of claims against the defendants, Antonio Reyes, Craig Kahler, and Betty Schnorenberg. The three defendants were a part of a Ponzi scheme that...

Has the Legalization of Marijuana Caused More Car Accidents?: The amount of car accidents in Colorado has increased in recent years. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, accident fatalities have increased 24 percent from 2014-2016. Much speculation has been made as to why this is. Some of the main contributors are a growing state population and an increase in distracted driving, but the recent legalization of marijuana use has many people wondering if high drivers are to blame for the increase. The difficulty in detecting high drivers is one of the main concerns amongst Colorado law enforcement and citizens. Is Marijuana Use Directly Linked to an Accident Increase? In a recent CNBC article, they investigated rates of auto accident claims from insurance companies in three states with legal marijuana. According to the Highway Loss Data Institute, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington have experienced a 3 percent increase in collision claims following the legalization of marijuana. This is alarming, but...

What If Your Car Insurance Company Refuses to Give You Coverage?: Your car insurance is there to protect you, you purchased a decent plan, made all your payments, and shouldn’t be financially worried about getting hit on the road. Then it happens, and your insurance company says they can’t cover the damages. They say the accident was your fault or your plan doesn’t have the funds, or another reason for the denial. This can be financially devastating for many people who were in a car crash and feel like there is no other option to get this money back. However, you still have options to challenge your insurance company’s claims. When Should You Challenge an Insurance Claim Denial? Delayed claim processing: When a company keeps dragging their feet in working your case to avoid payment. Refusal to pay: If an insurance company refuses to pay you for damages that are covered in your contract, or tries to make a claim that...

Colorado Personal Injury Case Wrap-Up for May 2017: Recently, the Colorado and Nebraska Supreme Courts examined the necessity of contractual privity, including a case of first impression in Nebraska about insurance contract language. In a very complex case, the Supreme Court of the United States determined the limits of sanctions for bad faith spoliation in a negligence case involving Goodyear. Is Contractual Privity Necessary for a Home Buyer to Assert a Claim of Breach of the Implied Warranty of Suitability Against the Developer? The Colorado Supreme Court addressed this question in Forest City Stapleton, Inc. v. Rogers. (2017 CO 23). When Denver residents got together to refurbish the old Stapleton Airport, there were problems. Fast forward to a homeowner suing for breach—in addition to suing the homebuilder, he wanted to sue the master developer for problems with his home and property. The Colorado Supreme Court said no—there was no privity of contract between the homeowner and the master...

Colorado Personal Injury Case Wrap-Up for March 2017: Many of the cases that came down from the Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals near the end of 2016 and beginning of 2017 covered language and its interpretation. Whether it’s strapping on skis or trying to figure out whether the death of a plaintiff means the insurance company is off the hook, the specific language involved typically became the determining factor in the outcome: Enforceability of Ski Lift Waivers: When a person gets on a ski lift and is riding high to the top of the mountain, has that person really read the back of the lift ticket? How many people just sign or click “accept” without reading what is contained in the language? In Brigance v. Vail Summit Resorts, Inc., United States District Court D., Colorado, January 13, 2017, the Court granted Motions for Summary Judgment for Vail Summit Resorts, based on the waivers on the back...
