Understanding the Coverage: Strict Liability
One of the most important concepts in Pollution Liability is Strict Liability. Strict Liability is the legal doctrine that makes an individual or company responsible regardless of any negligence or fault on their part. That responsibility persists even after the waste has been disposed of via an approved facility.
Most business owners feel they have little pollution exposure and adequate risk control but Strick Liability, if not accounted for, leaves a company exposed.
