The Importance of Instruction Manuals

Instruction manuals are an essential part of the packaging for many products. They help show consumers how to correctly operate the purchased item, as well as provide warnings about potential injuries that may be caused by the product. If a manufacturer forgets to include safety instructions or other cautionary warnings in the instruction manual, they may be held liable for consumer injuries.

The consumer is expected to use products purchased in a safe and responsible manner to prevent injury to oneself and others. The manufacturer should provide adequate documentation of the safety risks that may come with use of the product in its intended fashion. If you have been injured by a product that did not have adequate safety documentation, contact the Rhinelander personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, S.C at 1-800-242-2874 today.
