Dangerous Products
Manufacturers generally invest large sums of money and time in the design of their products, both to ensure that they will be desirable to the general public and to safeguard against potential dangers. In the design phase of a product under manufacture, a cost-benefit analysis is expected to be conducted. In this analysis, the critical question is whether the newly designed product presents more benefits than risks to the user. If too much risk is associated with the use of the product, the expectation is that the item will be re-submitted to the design phase and put through alterations prior to being manufactured.
Sometimes, in an effort to maximize profits or to rush the product out to market, a company will take shortcuts in the design process, opening the door to dangerous defects that have the potential to cause serious injuries. When the foreseeable risks of a product’s design could have been reduced or avoided altogether by applying changes to the design, a defective design case may be in order. The designer of a product is held professionally responsible for creating a product that is free from any seriously hazardous potential. Should he or she fail to do this, and the product’s defects result in catastrophic harm to another, the victim of such harm is entitled to compensation.
Any type of consumer product with a defective design may potentially provide the basis for a personal injury lawsuit, such as automobile tire sidewalls that blow out, airbags that fail to deploy in a car accident, malfunctioning pedals or SUV’s that are prone to rollover while cornering. Other common examples include children’s toys which break down and cause injury and home appliances with faulty wiring which cause fires or electrocution.
