Article Abstract

Each of us would like to believe that his actions are ethical. We refer to actions of which we do not approve as "immoral" or "unethical." The legal system divides its work into torts and criminal matters. There is a relationship between ethics, morality, and judicial decisions.Our interest is in product liability and whether unethical actions by industrial organizations or members thereof, including quality control personnel, have an adverse effect on the frequency and/or severity of product liability claims. The decision as to what is or is not ethical is a personal view. It will therefore be left to the reader to make his own decisions as to what should or should not have been done in the cases to be described.
