Inadequate Warnings Attorney
Protecting the Rights of Consumers Harmed by
People buy products assuming that they are safe for ordinary use. Unfortunately, dangerously defective products find themselves in distribution every day. There are three different types of defects that may make a product dangerous and they include defects in: design, manufacturing, and marketing. The area of law that deals with dangerously defective products that cause injury to consumers is referred to as “product liability law.” Pursuant to product liability law, a victim of a dangerously defective product has the right to seek compensation for the harm they have suffered due to the defect.
An inadequate warning, or a failure to warn, claim is a type of product liability action. It falls under the marketing defect category. This type of claim may involve the improper labeling of a product, insufficient instructions on how to safely use the product, or lack of adequate safety warnings on what to avoid when using the product. If you have been injured because you were not provided with the information needed to safely use a product, you have the legal right to compensation for your injuries. Fazli & Associates fights for the victims of dangerously defective products.
What Does an Inadequate Warning Claim Involve?
A product manufacturer has a duty to warn potential users of a product’s hidden dangers. Additionally, the manufacturer has a responsibility to provide instructions to users on how the product should be safely used and how to avoid any dangers associated with using the product. Warnings and instructions must be conspicuous and understandable to the average product user. When these things are not provided to consumers, the product becomes dangerously defective and can cause serious injury to unsuspecting users.
A product manufacturer, distributor, or retailer may potentially be held liable in an inadequate warning claim, meaning they would be responsible for compensating victims of the dangerous product. A party will usually be held liable in a failure to warn incident that resulted in injuries to the product user when:
The product presented a potential danger;
The manufacturer was aware of the potential danger;
The potential danger existed even when the product was used in its intended manner; and
The potential danger would not have been obvious to a reasonable user of the product.
When a manufacturer or some other party is held liable for providing inadequate warnings or instructions as to how to safely use a product, a person injured by the defective product has the right to seek compensation for the harm they have suffered. The injured person may seek compensation for things such as:
Cost of future medical care
Loss of future wages
