I offer you a job, and tell you in advance it is risky and you could hurt your limbs, blow out a knee or break fingers. Then you fatally injure your brain. I didn't mention long-term brain damage as a possible risk, and maybe I didn't know about it. If I did know about it, but didn't tell you, is that wrong?
