Elements of Design Defect Cases
Design defects are difficult to detect, both during the manufacturing process and in a court of law. The trouble rests in the fact that the dangerous defect could have arisen during distribution as opposed to actual design. In order to prove that the product designer was negligent in regards to its customers, the following must be proven:
- An injury has occurred
- The product failed dangerously with regard to reasonable expectations
- Improved design would mean that the injury in question could have been reasonably avoided
The consumer-expectations and risk-utility tests are also used to determine if design flaws are severe enough to merit some form of restitution in the event of an injury. A qualified lawyer can help you prove that the product caused your suffering and can secure you the compensation you deserve.
If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of a defective product design, you need to take legal action in order to prevent other people from being injured by the dangerous item as well.
