Detroit Design Defect Attorneys
Products manufactured in the United States must undergo rigorous testing before being released onto the market. Many companies subject their products to a variety of safety tests to determine their limits and to ensure that they are safe for consumers. Sometimes, however, a product line is not fully tested for defects or other safety issues and may be sold to unsuspecting customers.
An inherently flawed product that reaches store shelves is like a ticking time bomb; it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.

About Design Defects
In a product liability case, it is important to distinguish between manufacturing defects and design defects. While manufacturing defects involve an unplanned error in the manufacturing process, a design defect is a flaw in the product plan that affects the entire line. Design defects can arise when a product is not properly tested against daily wear and tear or against other forces that the product is likely to be exposed to during use. A manufactured item with inherent design flaws may malfunction, break, collapse, or otherwise expose the user to unsafe conditions that lead to injury.
Design Defects and Product Liability
If you have been injured by a defective product, a design defect may be the cause and you may have legal grounds to initiate a product liability lawsuit for compensation. A consumer may sue the manufacturer, design firm, or other party in a design defect case for insufficient design standards and for the unreasonable danger that the product posed to users. You may be entitled to payment for any damages caused by the defective item, including compensation for medical bills, lost income from time off of work, and pain and suffering.
