Legal Liability

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I've been wracking my brain trying to recall details of a story I heard a 
few years back regarding engineers making jobsite visits, and the assumption 
 of liability on their part for doing so.

I seem to recall a story about an engineer visiting a construction job, and 
 being sued for legal malfeasance resulting from an injury accident occurring 
 on a part of the project (or perhaps a separate project simultaneously 
occurring) with which he was not actually involved.

Anyone remember that? Or have any other interesting examples of how just 
being an engineer in the wrong place/wrong time turned into a tale of woe?
