      This chapter provides an outline of the elements which determine criminal liability, and of the rules relating to proof of those elements. Liability for an offence requires that the defendant’s outward conduct satisfies the requirements of that offence (ie the actus reus components) and that the defendant’s has the requisite legally blameworthy state of mind (ie the mens rea components).Author: Richard Card. THE STRICT LIABILITY IN FAULT AND THE FAULT IN STRICT LIABILITY. John C.P. Goldberg* & Benjamin C. Zipursky** Tort scholars have long been obsessed with the dichotomy between strict liability and liability based on fault or wrongdoing. We argue that this is a false dichotomy. Torts such as battery, libel, negligence, and nuisance areAuthor: John C. P. Goldberg, Benjamin C. Zipursky.

      Strict liability, sometimes called absolute liability, is the legal responsibility for damages, or injury, even if the person found strictly liable was not at fault or negligent. Strict liability has been applied to certain activities in tort, such as holding an employer absolutely liable for the torts of her employees, but today it is most commonly associated with defectively manufactured products. In tort law, strict liability is the imposition of liability on a party without a finding of fault (such as negligence or tortious intent). The claimant need only prove that the tort occurred and that the defendant was responsible. The law imputes strict liability to situations it considers to be inherently dangerous.

      With strict liability, an injured party could receive damages by showing that the product was inherently dangerous and also defective. The result was a subtle shift from focus on the manufacturer’s behavior to the product’s characteristics. Many people consider strict product liability to be anything but a subtle shift from negligence.

This chapter deals with the relation of strict liability to corrective justice. The first half criticizes Richard Epstein's sustained effort to vindicate strict liability as a requirement of justice between the parties.

Epstein's position is consistent neither with corrective justice's equality nor with its idea of agency nor with its correlativity of right and duty.

Strict liability torts require neither intent nor carelessness. In fact, if strict liability applies, it is irrelevant how carelessly, or how carefully, the defendant acted. It doesn’t matter if the defendant took every precaution to avoid harm—if someone is harmed in a situation where strict liability applies, then the defendant is liable.

The legal theory of strict liability allows a victim to collect damages without having to show that the other side acted negligently or intentionally to cause harm. Strict liability is just like it sounds — strict. The jury doesn’t take into account whether the defendant could have or should have done anything differently to avoid the accident.

Hylton. Strict liability is the imposition of liability without fault for damages on the defendant. This is different from negligence as the burden of proof is not placed on the plaintiff to prove that the damages were a result of the defendant’s negligence, only that.

Strict liability provides a remedy when harm is suffered through no intentional fault. The courts needed to create a standard that would cover this form of tort, or one without fault. The courts came up with the abnormally dangerous activity standard, which assigns responsibility when an individual engages in some form of dangerous activity, even if care is taken to avoid mishap (CCBC Legal Studies, n.d.).
