Personal Injury Terminology: Causation

Last updated 3 months ago

Personal injury cases sometimes face challenges related to proving the plaintiff’s claims. Doing so involves concepts such as causation, which entails demonstrating that the injury was directly caused by the defendant’s actions or negligence.

If the plaintiff can show that he or she would not be injured without the involvement of the defendant, the court will likely deem the personal injury claim valid. However, the situation becomes more complicated in the case of preexisting injuries that were exacerbated by the defendant’s actions. For this reason, an experienced personal injury attorney can be a valuable help in obtaining the compensation you need to recover.
