A: The differences are technical. Bottom line--it's not a d.i.y. area of the law. Call a member of the Fla Justice Assn

A: Strict liability is a special class of liability. Rather than needing to demonstrate some form of breach of duty from a given standard of care, the general concept is that the claimant be able to show that a product was defective.
