Filing Claims for Harmful Design Defects
Unfortunately, many defective products make it into the hands of consumers and have the potential to cause serious harm. When a harmful defect can be traced back to the negligence of the manufacturer, individuals who have been harmed by defective products have grounds for filing claims to compensation for any financial, physical, or emotional hardships that may have resulted.
When these defects were included in the original design of the product, they are called design defects. These types of defects can pose a serious threat to consumers, and those who have harmed as a result of a design defect may have grounds to file a claim to compensation for their suffering.
Pursuing Claims for Design Defects
It will be the plaintiff’s responsibility to prove that the design flaw could have been prevented had the manufacturer adopted a different design that would be the following:
- Easily implemented by the manufacturer
- Within financial reason for the manufacturer
- In line with the product’s originally intended use
Building a strong claim to compensation can be difficult to do alone. As such, an experienced attorney can provide the necessary legal assistance to increase your chances of success.
