A person who suffers personal injury or property damage as a result of pile driving and blasting with explosives does not need to prove the proprietor knew or, in the exercise of reasonable care, should have known that his work would cause damage. Rather, the successful plaintiff must only prove that the proprietor engaged in pile driving or blasting with explosives and that activity caused damage.

Other hazardous activities like crop dusting, dredging, storage of hazardous materials, demolition of buildings, and keeping of wild animals requires that the plaintiff prove the defendant was negligent in the activity engaged in.
