Abstract
  • This thesis discusses the field of products liability as it relates to the electronics industry. The historical development of products liability is traced and the various legal theories are examined. These legal theories and background are then used to discuss the judicial obligations imposed upon the manufacturer and seller of equipment with regard to product development and marketing of the product. The usual elements of a typical products liability case are presented and actions which the manufacturer or seller can take to avoid liability both before and after a case is filed are discussed. In the event that a products liability action is successful the damages awarded to the plaintiff are of significant importance to the manufacturer or seller and are therefore discussed. Past decisions and stated objectives of the products liability field are used in an attempt to predict further developments in the field.
