Foreseeability is defined as being reasonably anticipated. That is, the event / outcome followed someone’s conduct and should have been anticipated by him or her.

  • Example : A driver that proceeds through an intersection disobeying a red traffic control light and striking another vehicle can reasonably foresee that another car traveling through that intersection with a green traffic control light in his or her favor would be struck and sustain injuries.
  • Example : It is foreseeable that a visitor may slip and fall due to a pile of snow that was left to accumulate on someone’s porch.
