3.1-4 Proximate Cause (Substantial Factor)-Revised to January 1, 2008: Negligence is a substantial factor in bringing about an injury if it contributes materially to the production of the injury. Negligence contributes materially to the production of an injury if its causative effects remain in active operation until the moment of injury, or at least until the setting in motion of the final active injurious force which immediately produces or precedes the injury. By this definition of negligence, which makes only a remote, a trivial or an inconsequential contribution to the production of an injury, is not a substantial factor in bringing about the injury, and thus is not a proximate cause of the injury.
