Ian, a door-to-door salesman, filed a negligence case against Mark. While ringing the doorbell on Mark’s front porch, he was bitten by a venomous snake that Mark kept as a pet. Ian had no previous warning of the snake being loose. In this scenario, Ian is most likely to have filed for damages under strict liability.
The reason being that the snake being venomous and that since no prior warning was associated with it, there was always a genuine risk involved of a fatal harm to any person. Further, keeping a venomous snake as a pet is itself a dangerous act that violates any kind of safety if set loose like in this case. In addition, the performance of this act was not part of a proximate community and hence Ian can most like file for damages under strict liability against the owner for this negligence and would have to prove the proximate clause and why was it not reasonably possible for Ian to foresee this event coming his way.
