ORS 30.910
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)

§§ 30.900 to 30.925
