This project deals with the integration of the basic principles of engineering and of product liability. The three cases that were studied were analyzed independently from the point of view of an expert engineer witness and the law. These cases were put through the litigation process for two purposes, monetary settlement and the purpose of accident reconstruction. By the completion of this project, our group gained a better understanding of the relationship between product liability and the principles of engineering.
