Bitesize blog - what is 'causation' in an RTA?

What does “causation” mean?

So you have established that you were not to blame for the accident, what next? You must now demonstrate that the accident caused injury to you. This is the concept of causation.


Causation - admitted or disputed?

Sometimes an insurance company might admit that their driver was to blame for an accident, but they might deny that the accident caused any injury to you or caused damage to your vehicle. This often occurs where the speeds involved were low or very low.


What does this mean to you?
