The focus of this Interactive Qualifying Project is to investigate engineering product liability and its various applications to court cases. Extensive resources were drawn upon to exhibit the role of an engineer in the courtroom. To further expound upon this issue, four ambiguous product liability cases were analyzed. Each case was dissected to determine who was at fault based on engineering standards, and an indisputable verdict was established utilizing the evidence presented.
