Portland Product Liability Claims: Failure to Warn

About Failure to Warn and Legal Action Against a Manufacturer

Failure to warn is a product liability issue that arises when an otherwise well designed or manufactured product fails to provide adequate warnings or instructions about proper use. This also applies if a product is dangerous when incorrectly used. The product may require special precautions that are not obvious or made known or to the consumer through proper warnings.

Examples of products that fall under the "failure to warn" category include hazardous chemicals that do not provide adequate instructions for use and toys that do not warn of choking hazards. Products are required to be safe for consumers who use the product for their intended purpose, and by following the directions supplied. Products that contain an inherent danger must have warnings to consumers so that injury or death is avoided.
