What is a strict liability cause of action?

Strict liability is a legal doctrine that makes a person or company responsible for their actions or products which cause damages regardless of any intent on their part. A plaintiff filing a personal injury lawsuit under a strict liability law does not need to show intentional or negligent conduct, only that the defendant’s action triggered strict liability and that the plaintiff suffered a harm. Whether or not a tort action is considered strict liability and what damages are appropriate will depend on your state law, so consult an experienced personal injury attorney prior to filing a strict liability claim.
