Join Rashmiya Raviraj, B.A.Sc., CFEI, P.Eng. and Olivia Yalnizyan, M.A.Sc., B.A.Sc. for another of our product liability series, focusing on the most destructive duo in insurance: fire losses and water losses. We will take you through the engineering fundamentals of product design and manufacturing, and where engineering inadequacies lead to failures and catastrophic losses. Fire losses and water losses are two of the most common and most devastating results of product failures. Using electrical and material failure examples we will demonstrate the relationship between product liability and product design and engineering. Ultimately, we’ll provide you with a greater understanding of the impact of product design on its failure, to help you identify, understand, and pursue more of these subrogation opportunities.
