HI all,
Could someone tell me, where I could find an example of strict liability in civil cases?
I am in the middle of writing my essay and one of my points is that, strict liability is to prevent causing harm to the public. Thereofre I was wonder if using Halsey v Esso Petroleum Co. Ltd [1961] 1 WLR 683 case would be a good example? I cannot find any informations as to whether it is an example of strict liability. And whethear I am wrong or right so I wanted to double check. Could anyone help, please?
Thanks

Types of Strict Liability TortsThere are instances when a person becomes responsible for things that may go wrong even if the person did not intend for the wrong to occur. In other words, some actions hold a person strictly liable regardless of the circumstances. Say you owned an exotic Python. If the snake creeps out of the house and bites your neighbor, you will be held responsible even though you did not let the snake out. Ownership is enough to hold you responsible.
In other words, strict liability tort means a defendant is held fully liable for any injury sustained by another party regardless of whether the injury was intended. Dangerous animals are just one of three major strict liability categories. Strict liability categories include:
  • Animals, owned or possessed
  • Abnormally dangerous acts
  • Product liability

I think Product liability is a really good area to include in your essay (Check out Escola v Coca Cola) and the Consumer Protection Act 1987
