In this, the final article of this series on understanding negligence law, the causation and remoteness of damage is discussed. The final element that needs to be established in a negligence case is that the defendant's breach of duty was the cause of the claimant's loss and that this loss was not too far removed or remote from the actions of the defendant. The law involved in this area can be quite difficult to understand as some of the principles used are uncertain and the cases can be quite hard to draw together and reconcile.
