Intentional torts are a purposeful act to do harm to another. Negligence is failing to act to rectify a problem that can cause harm to an individual(s). For a claim to qualify as negligence certain elements have to be met.

 strict liability is a legal doctrine that is understood as the standard for determining liability or fault. The standard can exist in either a civil or criminal context. Whether or not the person is actually culpable of the damage, strict liability makes it mandatory for the person to pay for the losses and damages caused by his or her actions or omissions. In other words, this is a legal doctrine that mandates that people pay for damages, even when they were not negligent or when they took precautions to prevent any harm to others through their actions. The standard of strict liability is a critical part of criminal law, corporations law, and tort law, but most often appears in product liability cases.
