Forensic Engineering Investigations Of Product Liability Cases
AbstractEngineers Are Regularly Retained To Perform Investigations To Determine Whether Or Not A Product Is Defective And Liable For Injuries Sustained By An Individual Or Damages By A Commercial Entity. While Engineers Are Trained To Solve Problems Based On Physical Principles, Little Training Is Given To The Graduate Engineer To Determine Whether A Product Is Defective Or Not. Since The Majority Of Product Liability Actions Result From An Injury Sustained By An Individual Using A Product, The Engineer Is Ultimately Evaluating The Safety Of The Product. The Authors Of This Paper Will Detail A General Methodology To Investigate Product Liability Claims Through The Use Of Safety Engineering Principles.
