Design defects can cause a multitude of serious injuries. Unlike manufacturing defects that may affect one consumer, design defects make the entire line of products unsafe. For example, a design defect in an infant swing can cause the swing to tip over at a certain speed, causing crush injuries or asphyxiation.

When we purchase a product, whether it is a high chair, car, or cell phone, we expect the product to work as advertised. As consumers, we trust the product has been through rigorous safety tests and other measures to ensure it functions as advertised. However, when that product fails due to a design flaw, the consequences are alarmingly severe.
According to the latest data, 401 people suffered injuries related to consumer products. Children are especially vulnerable. A Kid Report: Children’s Product Recalls saw 2,312,750 children’s products recalled in the last reporting year. Nursery products were among the highest recalled items.
Other examples of harmful design defects in consumer products include;
Medications have also been recalled due to design defects. Some medicines worked well for their designed purpose, like alleviating arthritis pain, but were found to be defective when they unintentionally caused heart attacks.
