Defective Product Claims - Design Defect

Article by
Kevin Timms
A product may be defective if it is unsafe for its intended use because of a design defect.

A defective product compensation claim in respect of a design defect can often be complex as the design of a product may involve a number of variables including durability, aesthetics and ergonomics.
A defective design in a product may lead to an early failure of the product causing personal injuries or cause personal injuries prior to the product failing. An example of a design defect in a product is Metal on Metal hip implants, which by their design using metal on metal components has resulted in a high rate of metal wear particles causing extensive damage to many people who have these metal on metal hip implants.

In order to bring a defective product compensation claim in respect of a product with a design defect it has to be shown that the product contained a defect and that the individual wishing to make a compensation claim  suffered a personal injury as a result of the defect in the product.
