How Design Defects Can Hurt You

When a product is poorly designed, it can easily cause serious injury or illness to an unsuspecting consumer. Many design defects occur because of the negligence of product designers and manufacturers, and most of these defects could be prevented if those responsible for their products’ safety attended to those responsibilities more carefully. Unfortunately, designers do not always uphold this responsibility, causing consumers to suffer a myriad of injuries.

Potential Dangers

Millions of products go onto consumer shelves each year in the U.S., and most of these products are perfectly safe to use. However, if they are designed poorly, defective products can cause extreme harm to those handling them. Some of the potential dangers of a poorly designed product include:

  • Electrical burns
  • Food contamination
  • Infection
  • Lacerations / bruising
  • Accidental choking

These are certainly not the only dangers laid open to consumers if they handle a poorly designed product, but they are among the more common. But if you are injured in any way because of a designer or manufacturer’s error or negligence, you might be due financial compensation.
