This project studies the principal aspects of product liability law and the fundamentals of product safety. It investigates alleged defects in a boring machine, a minivan seat, and a tree spade. From an engineering viewpoint, opinions are developed on each case using legal documentation such as complaints, interrogatories, and depositions. The study concluded with a mock trial where both plaintiff and defendant arguments were presented. With due process, the jury rendered verdicts entitling parties to the right of financial recovery.
