Non-Negligence / Strict Liability

Non-Negligence / Strict Liability – A person may be held strictly liable, even though their actions are neither negligent nor intentional. This is referred to as strict liability / ‘no-fault’ liability. Liability in contract is normally strict. It will usually be no defence to a breach of contract for the defendant to plead that all reasonable care was taken and there was no negligence on their part. Strict liability may arise under Tort and under Statute. There is a tendency to impose strict liability on people who engage in particularly dangerous activities. However, even when a strict liability exists, there are some defences available to the defendant.

A prime example of the requirement for Non-Negligence insurance cover is in respect of demolition of buildings.
