Product disputably presumed not unreasonably dangerous

It is a disputable presumption in a products liability civil action that a product as manufactured and sold or leased is not unreasonably dangerous for its intended use. [1977 c.843 §2]

Notes of Decisions

In deciding whether evidence of defective design is sufficient ques­tion for jury, court must balance utility of risk created against magnitude of risk, then determine if alternative has been shown practicable in terms of cost, overall design and opera­tion of product. Glover v. BIC Corp., 987 F2d 1410 (1993)
