Arizona Product Liability

Inadequate Warning Labels – Phoenix Product Liability Attorney

Warning Labels – Phoenix Product Liability Attorney - Arizona Burg SimpsonA consumer product can be designed and manufactured properly – and safely – and yet still be ruled defective because it failed to include appropriate instructions and/or warnings. This product liability flaw, also known as a marketing defect, can hold either the manufacturer, distributor, or the retailer liable. If a defective product has seriously injured you or a loved one, speak with a product liability lawyer as soon as possible.

Not every product needs to come with a warning. But if a product could pose a safety hazard in a non-obvious way, the manufacturer has a duty to warn if:

  • The product is dangerous
  • The manufacturer is aware of – or should be aware of – that danger
  • The danger exists when the product is used normally
  • The danger is not readily apparent to the consumer

Burg Simpson Arizona is a product liability law firm that has successfully litigated hundreds of cases for more than four decades. If a defective consumer product has left you or a family member seriously injured, speak with a Burg Simpson product liability lawyer at 602-777-7000 or fill out our Free Case Evaluation form now.

Most states accept that “failure to warn” can occur:

Before the sale: This is the most common form of failure to warn. The manufacturer is obligated to include instructions and/or warnings regarding inherent dangers before, or at the time of the sale, of the product. Obviously, a knife maker does not have to include a warning with their new chef’s knife that it can cut the consumer. But a car seat manufacturer should include instructions on proper installation, as well any appropriate restrictions, such as a weight limit, for example.

After the sale: This also can be referred to as a “continuing” duty to the consumer and is typically limited to a few situations, such as:

  • A seller is obligated to warn consumers of a defective and unreasonably dangerous condition associated with a product that was not discovered until after the initial sale. This is the most commonly accepted form of “after the sale” failure to warn.
  • A seller also can be held liable if it can be shown the manufacturer and/or seller should have known about a defect that was not communicated.

If you have been seriously injured by a defective product that lacked proper warnings or instructions, get in touch with Burg Simpson to talk to a Phoenix product liability attorney right now by calling 602-777-7000.
