Design-Defect Liability

Definition

A manufacturer is liable for the defective design of its product if the product fails to perform as safely as an ordinary consumer would expect when used in an intended or reasonably foreseeable manner, or if, in light of all relevant factors, the benefits of the challenged design do not outweigh the risk of danger inherent in such design.
