The difficulty of proving proximate cause

Posted on October 15th, 2009 No Comments

Plaintiffs involved in personal injury cases must typically prove proximate cause. This legal concept applies to showing that the negligent behavior of a defendant is directly related to the plaintiff’s injury.

For instance, if the injury could have been caused by an outside factor, then the plaintiff likely did not prove proximate cause. One useful test for proximate cause is determining whether the injury would not have occurred if the other party were not present.

Proving proximate cause can be a difficult legal task. If you are considering filing a personal injury case, contact the San Antonio personal injury lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999.
