Establishing Responsibility: Negligence, Strict Liability and Intentional Conduct

Posted By Patrick Rogan || 19-Jul-2010

If you have been injured in Scranton, but don't know whether you have a solid case against the party that caused your injuries, then you should speak with a Scranton personal injury lawyer. An experienced Scranton personal injury attorney will tell you that establishing legal responsibility, or liability, is among the first tasks you and your attorney will need to tackle.

There are really three kinds of liability: negligence, strict liability and intentional conduct. Negligence means a failure to act with proper caution or reasonable care. Strict liability refers to situations in which defendants can be held accountable regardless of intent. Intentional conduct is just as it sounds - it refers to situations in which one party willfully or intentionally harms another.
