Why should I be concerned about causation in an personal injury case?

Every personal injury claim requires proof of causation to succeed. The basic test for determining causation remains the "but for" test. The plaintiff bears the burden of showing that "but for" the negligent act or omission of each defendant, the injury would not have occurred. Without proof of causal connection, a personal injury claim will fail.
