Inadequate Warning Labels On Dangerous Products

Full Video Transcript

Have you or a loved one suffered injuries as a result of using a product, only to realize that the warning label about its dangers wasn’t adequate? There is a special area of law, called products liability law, whereby manufacturers and sellers have a legal duty to warn you of the dangers associated with the regular, or foreseeable, use of their products. The reason for these laws is simple – the folks who actually make and sell a product are in the best position to understand the product’s dangers and, thus, are in the best position to warn you about the dangers of using it. Otherwise, manufacturers may be tempted to make or market a product that they knew was unsafe, simply to make more of a profit. So, if the warning label on a product doesn’t adequately inform or warn you of the product’s dangers, and you’re injured as a result, then manufacturer or seller can be held liable for the inadequate warning and have to compensate you for your injuries.
