What is Causation?


Causation is the link between a person’s action (or inaction) and a specific outcome. So, in a medical negligence and/or personal injury claim, causation is the link between the opponent’s breach of duty and the resulting injury. The claimant has to establish that what the medical professional did (or failed to do) led to an identifiable injury and loss. In other civil claims, the causation depends on the type of claim.
