Instructions and warning labels for possible hazards must be prominent and easy to read and follow, including diagrams, if necessary. If you can show that the product was installed according to instructions and you understood the warnings and were using the product for its intended use, you are entitled to seek full and fair money damages for your injuries. Parties held liable for damages may include the manufacturer, the distributor and the installer.
