For decades, the pre-sale duty to warn and instruct has been and continues to be the basis of much consternation by manufacturers and product sellers and the bane of many defense lawyers trying to defend the myriad of cases alleging a failure to warn. Failing to comply with the post-sale duty to warn, on the other hand, has served as the basis of most punitive damage awards and has been recognized by experts in the area for its expansive nature in the realm of product liability law. The DRI Product Liability Compendium: Warnings, Instructions, and Recalls was assembled to give readers a comprehensive summary of the current U.S. common law, as well as international common, civil, and regulatory law, in both of these areas-pre-sale warnings and post-sale duties to warn or fix a defective product-and to demonstrate how the two areas are inextricably intertwined. Recognizing that product liability has become global and that accidents, court rulings, regulatory activities, and settlements anywhere in the world can be easily discovered, it is clear that manufacturers and product sellers must consider all geographical areas in which they sell their products when deciding how to comply with pre-sale and post-sale duties and how to defend claims and litigation based on these duties.
