This project explored the role of an engineer as an expert witness in cases dealing with product liability. To do this, an engineer must become involved with all aspects of the case, including background research, and the litigation process. We learned about the legal process through videos and books then applied our newly acquired knowledge, along with our engineering skills, to several actual cases. We then formed opinions using sound engineering practices and reported our findings.
