Superseding Cause

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

A type of intervening cause which is so substantially responsible for the ultimate injury that it acts to cut off the liability of preceding actors regardless of whether their prior negligence was or was not a substantial factor in bringing about the injury complained of.

ly with “intervening” in which case it does not have this meaning. Properly, the term “superseding” is limited to an intervening cause which “by its intervention prevents the actor from being liable for harm to another which his antecedent negligence is a substantial factor in bring about.”
