What is a foreseeable injury?

Posted By on May 4, 2016

According to Florida case law as of the date of this article, a foreseeable injury is one which a careful person would expect to likely result from a given action; the exact injury or manner in which it happens doesn’t need to be foreseen, but rather it only needs to be foreseeable that some injury could result from the negligent act.

See: Guyton v. Colvin, 473 So.2d 266, 267 (Fla. 1st DCA 1985)
