Causation in your Case

on August 1, 2011 in Terms of the Law

Causation is a very important factor in valuing your case because it focuses on what injuries or damages will be considered in calculating the amount you may be able to recover. Very simply, you can collect for injuries that were caused by the accident, but you will not be able to collect for anything that was not caused by the accident. For example, if you get into an accident and your head hit the windshield, you can collect for any treatment necessary to repair your head injuries. You will not be able to collect compensation for treatment for your sinus infection that you had when the accident occurred.
