Happens when a product is not manufactured according to its design: a screw is forgotten, a protective cover is not properly fastened; somewhere a mistake occurs, and the product is still sent into the stream of commerce.
A product with a design defect may be decently manufactured, but the design itself is unsafe. Personal Injury Attorneys of Florida claim that manufacturers have a duty to safely design products for the intended use and for misuse, if such misuse is predictable. A very appropriate example is sited by a noted design defects claim lawyer of Florida. He says that a kitchen cleaning agent must be designed to safely clean countertops and stovetops, but it can be foreseen that a child can drink the product, so a manufacturer must design the product in such a manner that it is safe when drunk or should have a child-proof cap.
