Inherent

Derived from the essential nature of, and inseparable from, the object itself.

An object which is inherently dangerous is one that possesses potential hazard by its mere existence, such as explosives. By contrast, other objects are dangerous only when used in a negligent manner, such as a pipe wrench or baseball bat. The rule of Strict Liability is applied when accidents arise from objects that are inherently dangerous.
