Abstract

The goal of this Products Liability IQP is to learn the basic concepts of products liability law. First, to gain this fundamental understanding, we watched nine videos and read two books pertaining to products liability. Using this solid foundation, we analyzed two liability cases and performed one accident reconstruction. This experience expanded our knowledge of safety, ethics, and good engineering practice.
