Reis v. Volvo Cars of North America, 138

In an action alleging defective design of a product, the trial court erred in giving a jury charge that a defendant who has or claims to have "special skills" in a trade or profession is required to use the same degree of skill and care that others in the same, where: 1) said charge is generally given in case alleging malpractice; and 2) in this situation, the error requires reversal and a new trial.
