Phoenix Injury Lawyers: What is Strict Liability?


Answer: Strict liability means the defendant is strictly (automatically) liable.

Most strict liability scenarios offer very few if any defenses. For example, dog owners are strictly liable for injuries their dogs inflict, such as dog bites.

The victim need not prove any negligence by the dog owner. The only two allowable defenses are provocation or trespassing.
