Absolute Liability

In law, the legal liability the owner of a property has for all damages committed by other persons on his/her property. For example, if a lumberjack working on Farmer John's property chops down a tree and it falls on Rancher Frank's barn, Farmer John may have the absolute liability to pay for Rancher Frank's new barn.
