Description

Read the question or topic carefully and compose a quality answer including reference to the source of your information. When completing any written assignment in this course, you are expected to express your own ideas and thoughts, using your own words. Do not plagiarize a response. To serve as a guideline-your original post must be a minimum of 400 words although some topics may need more to thoroughly discuss. Add a citation or reference in all your initial discussion board responses. While driving on Interstate 40 in North Carolina, Carroll Jett became distracted by a texting system in the cab of his tractor-trailer truck. He smashed into several vehicles that were slowed or stopped in front of him, injuring Barbara and Michael Durkee and others. The injured motorists filed a suit in the federal district court against Geologic Solutions, Inc., the maker of the maker of the texting system, alleging product liability. Was the accident caused by Jett’s inattention or the texting device? Should a manufacturer be required to design a product that is incapable of distracting a driver? Please discuss in detail and support your viewpoint.
