Causation is a fundamental concept in criminal law that refers to the link between a person's actions and the harm that results from those actions. Establishing causation is essential in determining whether a person can be held responsible for the harm they have caused. However, determining causation can be complex, and courts must consider a range of factors, including the defendant's actions, the victim's pre-existing conditions, and other external factors that may have contributed to the harm. This abstract explores the concept of criminal causation, including its importance in criminal law, the factors that must be considered in determining causation, and the implications of establishing causation for criminal trials.
