The objective of this Interactive Qualifying Project was to gain an understanding of product liability as it pertains to engineers. The methods we used to study product liability were to first research the law and then apply it to three test cases. The conclusion we arrived at was that engineers play a crucial role in the litigation process as expert witnesses. Any design engineer must be cognizant of the implications that small decisions create.
