What is strict liability?

Strict liability is a legal doctrine that allows a person to hold another party responsible for an injury, whether or not the other party was at fault. For instance, if a person keeps pit bulls as pets, yet contains them in high-grade pens, the owner can still be held liable if a dog happens to escape the quality fencing and attacks someone.

Basically, even if the owner takes the necessary steps to keep the dogs in an enclosure so they cannot escape, the owner may still be responsible for a dog’s escape because he or she is keeping dangerous dogs in the first place.

If you suffer from an injury, the party responsible may claim that they are not at fault. To help you prove your case, contact a Danville personal injury attorney from the respected firm of Spiros Law, P.C., today at (217) 443-4343.
