Understanding Foreseeability and Remoteness As Elements of Neglience Law Principles
The basic definition of negligence, generally, states that negligence involves the failure to do what a hypothetical person, acting reasonably and prudently would do or would refrain from doing in a given situation; however, there is much more involved in a negligence liability case.
In a negligence case, for legal liability to arise there are four essential elements that must be proven or the case shall fail. The four essential elements are:
- A duty of care is owed;
- A standard of care was breached;
- A breach was what caused any resulting harm; and
- A damage occurred that was foreseeable and proximate, meaning without remoteness.
The issues of foreseeability and remoteness are actually defensive concerns, meaning that a Defendant who is defending against a negligence case may allege that the damage that resulted was unforeseeable or too far remote from the causation incident. These aspects of negligence law often receive little attention
