Walnut Creek Failure to Warn Attorneys
California Failure to Warn Law
If the manufacturer of a product of any kind does not adequately warn users of potential dangers, side effects or other possible injuries from either using or misusing the product, that company or the seller could be liable under California failure to warn laws. Most any product that you can purchase has labels or literature explaining the possible uses of the product, how to use the product correctly and alerting the user to any possible dangers of using the product. These instructions and warnings are entirely necessary to prevent people from injury. If a product fails to alert consumers and warn them of possible dangers, the product may be considered an unreasonably dangerous product under the law. If this unreasonably dangerous product causes injury, the parties responsible for providing the product can be liable for failing to make the product safe to use.
If you have been injured or someone you care for has been injured or killed by an unreasonably dangerous product, the attorneys at Walnut Creek personal injury law firm Balamuth Law, may be able to help.
What Does Failure to Warn Apply To?
The liability for failing to provide adequate warning can apply to both the manufacturer of the product and the seller. In most failure to warn product liability cases, the inadequate warning pertains to the assembly of the product where improper assembly could potentially be dangerous to the user or others nearby. The manufacturer of any product is responsible for helping users of their product by providing clear and complete instructions for the safe use of the product. Although failure to warn liability can apply to products as diverse as toothpaste or a toaster, most failure to warn cases involve products which are "intrinsically dangerous" such as:
- Power tools
- And many other products
If a product is "intrinsically dangerous," the manufacturer is required to provide explicit warnings and alerts that warn users of the potential dangers of using the product in plain, easy-to-understand language. Failure to provide adequate warnings on these or any other types of products can result in product liability litigation.
