Georgetown Design Defects Lawyers
When you purchase a product, you expect it to function as advertised and pose no unnecessary dangers during use. We almost always take for granted that products have undergone a series of tests and design plans in order to ensure that they function well once available for purchase. Nonetheless, this is not always the case and some products may have dangerous flaws inherent to the design. This may put you at risk even when using the product for its intended purpose and may cause potentially serious injuries or illnesses.
Manufacturers may never intend to make an unsafe product, but often put their bottom line ahead of safety and are liable for the damage they cause regardless. These dangers may indicate inadequate testing or even negligence on the company’s part, and you should not have to face the consequences for their mistake. If you or a loved one have been harmed by a product, the Georgetown design defects lawyers at Evans Moore, LLC can help you receive justice. You may even be eligible for compensation for your losses.
Design Defect Liability
The company that produced the product is legally responsible for the injury the product caused if it is determined to be unreasonably dangerous as designed, even when using it for the intended purpose. This stipulation is essential, given that some products—such as knives or saws—have associated dangers and others do not.
When proving a company’s liability for creating an unsafe product, often a plaintiff may have to indicate the following information:
- An alternative design would have reduced or eliminated the risk
- The manufacturer had the ability to produce this alternative design
- The alternative design was economically feasible
- The product would still perform its intended purpose if made with the alternative design
Without providing this information, it may be difficult to make and support a product liability claim.
