Strict Liability: Under the theory of strict liability, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers can be held liable for injuries caused by defective products, even if they were not negligent.

Negligence: The theory of negligence requires the plaintiff prove that the defendant was careless or acted with intent and that this behavior led to the plaintiff’s injuries.
