It was stated, at the beginning of the first article in this series, that in order to make out a prima facie case in an action based upon a negligent tort of the defendant, the plaintiff must allege and prove not only that the defendant was negligent, but also that the defendant's negligent misconduct was at least a part of the legal or proximate cause of the plaintiff's damage. In this article will be discussed the subjects of legal or proximate cause and contributing misconduct of the plaintiff.
