Wilton Car Accident Case Jury Charge Proximate Cause

Wilton Car Accident Case Jury Charge Proximate Cause

You are seriously injured in a Wilton, Connecticut car accident and your entire world is turned upside down.  This is the exact reason why we wrote the book "The Crash Course On Personal Injury Claims in Connecticut" so you can educate yourself on what you need to do to get better quicker and to help your attorney get more money for you.

The lawyers conclude their closing statements and how it is time for the trial judge to turn your case over to the jury for deliberations. Prior to the jury getting your case, the judge will have to instruct the jury on how to apply the law to the facts of your case. The way in which the judge does this is to "charge" the jury. The judge might give the following jury charge as it relates to the issue of your Wilton, Connecticut car accident:

Proximate Cause - Foreseeable Risk.  To prove that an injury is a reasonably foreseeable consequence of negligent conduct, a plaintiff need not prove that the defendant actually foresaw or should have foreseen the extent of the harm suffered or the manner in which it occurred.  Instead, the plaintiff must prove that it is a harm of the same general nature as that which a reasonably prudent person in the defendant's position should have anticipated, in view of what the defendant knew or should have known at the time of the negligent conduct.
