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.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

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 got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
