Re: Read and Inciteful Comment on Story Actually, you're wrong. If a Mechanic is aware that a certain part is faulty and continues to use the item, he or she may be liable. Let's give the example of tires. Say the Mechanic has repeated complaints about a tire blowing out and ignores the customer.
Said Mechanic fails to notify company of complaints, and a customer dies. If the family finds out the Mechanic didn't take due diligence and let the manufacturer know the part he received were faulty, then he MAY be liable, too.
Ignorance is not an excuse to ignore one's duties.
