strict liability

The liability of a property owner or occupier for injury to others despite the lack of any fault or wrongdoing by the owner or occupier.Typically, when people engage in an inherently dangerous activity on land,such as blasting rock,they are responsible for damage to adjoining property or to persons injured by the blast.This is true even if an independent contractor was responsible for the work and even if everything was done exactly as it should have been done using all possible safeguards and protections and the injury was the result of a freak accident.
