Design defects in mass-produced consumer products can cause harm to many people. In the case of factory-produced goods, a design defect will result in every single individual product within a particular product line coming out with the same defect. Exploding gas tanks in Ford Pintos were an early example of this phenomenon. It is important for consumers and vendors to pay attention to product recalls, which often sound a warning after injuries have occurred. Vigilant sellers and users of products who respond to product recalls can prevent injuries and fatalities.
Preparing a design defect claim or lawsuit will involve proving that an engineer or designer should have known of reasonable alternative designs that would have been safer and prevented injuries. The concept of “reasonable” alternatives is, of course, a matter of subjective judgment, however there are certain factors considered in evaluating alternative designs such as cost and usefulness.
