Strict Liability

Liability directed by law (statute or common law) without regard to the intention of the offender’s actions. Strict liability shifts the burden of proof; it creates a rebuttable presumption that the defendant must overcome. Strict liability is also called no-fault liability or absolute liability. Strict liability is often applied in inherently dangerous activities or in the manufacturing of products.
