Flawed Product Design

A design defect is a defect that is inherent in the product itself. A design defect is a defect in the design of the product that makes the product unsafe for its intended use. A product with a design defect was manufactured and marketed just as it was intended, but it was designed improperly. In most instances, the manufacturer of the product could have used a safer design that may have helped avoid foreseeable risks. A design defect will be found in every product that was produced according to the design, and the defect is actually present prior to the manufacturing process.

An example of a product with a design defect is a toy made with small magnet pieces that easily come off. Even when used correctly, the small pieces can still pose a serious injury to young children who may take the magnetic pieces and swallow them.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP
  • ★★★★★
    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
