The goal of this Products Liability IQP is to learn the basic concepts of products liability law. First, in order to gain a fundamental understanding of the topic, we watched nine videos and read a book pertaining to the topic. Using this as a foundation to work from, we analyzed four liability cases, three of which were product liability cases and one of which was an accident reconstruction. This experience expanded our knowledge of safety standards, the responsibility of management and engineering analysis techniques.
