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.
