Strict Liability

By July 20, 2017January 25th, 2024No Comments

Strict liability is a standard for liability which may exist in either a criminal or civil context. It states that a person is liable for their own actions. It does not matter if they are found at fault or wrongdoing. For example, farmers are strictly liable for the actions of their cattle. A more relatable example would be when strict liability applies to defective products. The manufacturers are held liable for any injuries caused by the use of their product. Strict liability, in part, forces the defendant to show that they are not liable, instead of requiring the plaintiff to prove that the defendant was at fault.
