Southbury motorcycle accident: legal causation

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Oct 03, 2011 | 0 Comments

A Southbury, Connecticut, motorcycle accident case can ruin you physically, emotionally and economically.  Who will pay your bills?  How do you go about getting your lost wages?  How much money are you entitled to receive for your injuries?  These circumstances create very difficult times that require immediate answers.

If your case is tried before a jury, then at the conclusion of your case the trial judge will glue instructions to the jury that tells them how to apply the facts to the law regarding a number of legal issues. NEW instructions are referred to as jury charges. One such charge that relates to causation would be:

Legal Cause:If you find that the defendant was negligent in any of the ways alleged in the plaintiff's complaint, you must next decide if such negligence was a legal cause of any of the plaintiff's claimed injuries.  Legal cause has two components: cause in fact and proximate cause.
