This is why an engineer reviewing the drawings needs to actually review them, and not simply rubber stamp it and then only stamp it when he is satisfied. This is also why consultants carry liability insurance. Chances are this review will not be cheap.

mayvik, in the event of a problem, everyone who was in contact with the product is liable. the only parties which would have to pay would be those found negligent. so yea, if there was a serious design flaw and the engineer says it's cool, then yes. even if no one is negligent, the insurance company still has to pay for legal fees... they pay out a lot more than you think.

and yea, I'm not expecting it to be cheap, even if we get a good deal. I expect nothing to be cheap, ever... so I am never disappointed, and once in a while I even feel fortunate or lucky
