Intervening Cause

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

A type of cause that helps to produce the result, but that comes into action after the negligence of the defendant. “Intervening” is used in a time sense; it refers to later events. For example, if the defendant sets a fire with a strong wind blowing at the time, which carries the fire to the plaintiff’s property, the wind does not intervene, since it was already in operation; but if the fire is set first, and the wind springs up later, it is then an intervening cause.
