Failure to Warn Claims Lawyer

When you buy or use a product, you deserve to know about any risks that could cause you serious harm. Product manufacturers and retailers have a responsibility to ensure that their products are safe when used as intended. They must inform consumers if there are any dangers. If you use a product as intended but are seriously injured without warning, the manufacturer could be liable if they failed to warn you of the dangers.

Every small electrical appliance has a tag on the cord warning you to keep it away from water to avoid electrical shock. This is a perfect example of a product warning. If you use your hair dryer correctly, it should not cause you harm. Since there is a danger if used in or near water, there is a warning to keep you safe. When a product has a similar risk, but the manufacturer does not provide adequate warning, they can be held responsible if injuries occur.

What is a Product Warning Defect?

If you cut yourself with a knife, it is unlikely that a manufacturer could be held liable, even without a warning defect. Consumers are expected to use common sense and understand basic dangers. However, products with a warning defect may have risks that are not obvious. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to reveal the risk of injury to protect the consumer. A warning defect occurs when:

  • The product can be dangerous and cause serious injury
  • There is a risk of injury when the product is used as intended
  • The risk is known or should be known by the maker of the product
  • The risk is not obvious to the consumer
  • There is not a warning of injury risk provided with the product

If a product causes you or a family member serious injury and the manufacturer failed to warn consumers of the danger, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about filing a failure to warn claim for a dangerous product, contact Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law today.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
