This article considers whether and, if so, to what extent a principal may be held liable for the negligence of an independent contractor in relation to what has been called “extra hazardous activities”.
Particularly, I shall consider
whether English Courts should still recognise “extra hazardous activities” as a special category in respect of which the principal cannot avoid or delegate responsibility, and
if so, the kind of activities which might (or might not) be characterised as “extra hazardous” at the present time.
