Assignment 1 (Forensic Engineering) Staying within your area of engineering expertise: 1. Go out and find something that can be argued to be an act of engineering negligence (negligent design or manufacturing). 2. Take a picture that shows what part of the product, system, design, component, etc. is negligent. 3. Write a forensic assessment as an engineer (1 or 2 sentences) explaining in terms of responsibility, standard and practice, using engineering terminology to describe how the engineering is deficient. 4. Using legal terminology write an explanation of how the design is negligent. Example: FORENSIC EXPERT: Whoever designed this outdoor lighting system had a responsibility to produce a safe system. Use of exposed wires wrapped in electrical tape violates good engineering practices and standards and is violative of the national electric code (references omitted). LAWYER: This is an example of negligent design. A reasonable and prudent designer of outdoor lighting systems has a duty to design such that system failure and injury are not likely. This design by its nature creates an obvious and foreseeable risk of failure and injury or even death. The design fails to meet even the minimum safety standards as codified in the National Electric Code. Injury resultant from failure to adhere to the NEC standards would be by definition negligence per se.
