Strict Liability Law
Strict liability is a legal term used to describe any situation in which a person or entity is responsible for damages (even without negligence). This is also known as liability without fault and it means the person or entity is liable regardless of negligence. Additionally, the law imposes liability on dangerous activities, such as using explosives.
This type of liability can also apply to manufactured products and does not involve the need to prove whether someone manufactured the product appropriately or not, regardless of the plaintiff’s fault. This means that the defendant will be found liable for damages if the plaintiff found the product to be defective. A plaintiff does not have to prove a manufacturer was negligent if:
- the accident was caused by a defect in the product;
- the plaintiff correctly used the product; and/or
- there was no substantial alteration of the product from the time it left the manufacturer to the time it reached the plaintiff.
