2. Intentional Torts
4. Strict Liability
In this video, you should consider the following:
- The injuries of the plaintiff must be a foreseeable result of the plaintiff’s actions.
- In the red light example, it was foreseeable that if I ran a red light, I could get into an accident.
- In the example with my daughter, it was not foreseeable that my spilling coffee would cause her to get hit in the head, even though it may have been the “but for” cause.
- What causes are intervening and do not cut off the defendant’s liability.
