This chapter analyzes the concept of strict liability. It shows that the difference between fault and strict liability is a gradual one rather than one of principle. In fact, most liability rules are a combination of fault and strict elements. When finding rules, courts and legislators in all jurisdictions use different elements from both categories to achieve what they consider to be the best mix to come to a fair decision.
