Design Defects Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

When designing a product, manufacturers have an obligation to ensure it will be safe when used as intended. This includes medical devices, toys, appliances, auto parts and any product that is on the market. Most products must go through rigorous testing process to ensure that they are safe, but some manage to slip through the safety protocols. When a product is designed with safety defects, they can be dangerous to consumers and cause injuries or death.

What is a Design Defect?

Defective products usually fall into two categories, design and manufacturing. Manufacturing defects are when a mistake is made during the making of the product. It is designed correctly, but there was an error made during the manufacturing process that caused it to be defective or unsafe.

A design defect is when a product is flawed in its overall design and may be dangerous when used as intended. For example, a motorcycle helmet that is created with a material that shatters on impact is a design defect. The material and helmet should have been tested to ensure that it would work as intended. If the helmet is sold to consumers, they could be at risk for a head injury if there is an accident. Those who sustain a brain injury due to the defectively designed helmet may be eligible to receive compensation through a design defect claim against the manufacturer.

Design Defect Injury Claims

When a product has a design defect that is unsafe, consumers can file a defective product claim against the manufacturer or retailer. A few stipulations must be met for a design defect claim. First, there must have been an injury and damages caused by the defect. Secondly, the product must have been used as intended when the injury occurred. There are many other possible considerations, which is why it is vital to have an experienced design defect attorney to build a solid case.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
