Failure to Warn: Product Liability Claims in Kansas City

Kansas City Defective Product Attorney

Under product liability law, a consumer injured due to manufacturing or design defects can pursue compensation from negligent or responsible parties. Products can additionally lack adequate warning or instructions for consumers thus making them a liability to the consumer. This is known as a "failure to warn." In many cases, it is not possible to make a product less dangerous while retaining its function. This is true for products that must have specific ingredients or components in order to retain their intended use.

In such a case, it is still possible to lower the risks associated with the product by providing adequate warning and full, detailed instructions for safe use. The manufacturer of a product has a duty to warn consumers about the inherent dangers of a product. When there is inadequate warnings, and it results in the injury of a consumer, a claim against the manufacturer can be filed, and with the help of an attorney it is often possible to recover compensatory damages. Defective products cause countless catastrophic injuries per year.
