This Interactive Qualifying Project involves a description of the different aspects of Product Liability and the applicability of such aspects to the engineering world. Litigation and trial law as it pertains to product liability is described and outlined through the use of two books and nine videotapes. Then the knowledge gained about the usage of law in the engineering fields is applied to three case studies. An opinion is reached on each through accident reconstruction and the pertinent law.
