With the summer months upon us, Rob Sparling, B.Eng.Mgt., P.Eng. and Dr. Troy Eggum CIP, Ph.D., P.Eng. have put together a unique product liability presentation using case examples exclusively from the summer months. Specifically, when those leisure activities become stressful due to failures. They will illustrate the basic concepts of product design and product liability investigations using cases about boats, tubing ropes, water parks, jungle gyms, rope swings, pools, golf equipment, bicycles, gyms and much more. We will review the failures and identify any subrogation and recovery potentials.
