Abstract

Each year thousands of product liability cases inundate the United States Court systems. The engineer is often used in these cases to provide his expertise to the court. This IQP analyzes three product liability cases that range from product design negligence to accident reconstruction. Furthermore, the relationship between product failure and its affect on society is analyzed.
