What is needed to bring a failure to warn theory claim?

Product liability cases often involve claims that a manufacturer failed to warn a consumer of any dangerous characteristics found in the product. Failure to warn allegations often arise in cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals and products that contain harmful materials such as asbestos. Failure to warn cases use the principle that a manufacturer has a duty to ensure that it sufficiently warns individuals of the damages that its products may cause.

If you have been injured while using a defective product, there are five basic elements that must exist in a product liability claim based on a failure to warn theory:

  1. The manufacturer sold the product in the course of its business.
  2. The defective product was unreasonably dangerous when put to a reasonably anticipated use without knowledge of its characteristics.
  3. The manufacturer did not give adequate warning of the danger.
  4. The allegedly defective product was used in a manner reasonably anticipated.
  5. The consumer was injured as a direct result of the product being sold without an adequate warning.

It’s important to keep in mind that the duty of a manufacturer to warn a client of the dangers of a product can vary depending on the type of product in question. The duty of who should receive the warning may also vary depending on the type of product in question. For example, medical device manufacturers often only have to warn physicians of the potential hazards of a device. Therefore, a patient often cannot use a failure to warn theory to bring a case if a manufacturer adequately warned a physician, but the physician failed to read the manufacturer’s literature that contained the warnings to the patient. The application of a particular theory of product liability law is highly dependent on the facts of a person’s case.
