Plaintiff alleges that her lift chair exploded because the defendant-seller had repaired it and replaced its hand controller with a used one. However, plaintiff designated no expert witnesses, and the electrical contractor she hired to examine the used controller found no signs of electric damage. Plaintiff failed to make out a case of negligence in the design or manufacture of the lift chair.
We affirm summary judgment for defendants.
