Property owners are required by law to notify guests of deadly hazards, even if the guest was uninvited (such as a trespasser). Additionally, property owners must notify all invited guests of potential hazards that could be discovered during a reasonable inspection of one’s property. Failure to warn in any of the previously mentioned scenarios may make the property owner liable for any injuries incurred while on his or her property.
Product manufacturers must warn consumers of any hazards that their product could cause. This is especially significant for electrical products and children’s toys. While these warnings may seem like they&re stating the obvious, they help protect product manufacturers from lawsuits. However, in the event that a person is injured by a product, and he or she was not adequately warned of the potential hazard, the product manufacturer could be held liable for damages.
