A
Answered by: Lawyer Up
 
"Intervening causes" are things that happen after the D's negligence and before the P's ultimate harm that ARE "foreseeable". By contrast, "superseding causes" are things that happen after the D's negligence and before the P's ultimate harm that ARE NOT "foreseeable" and therefore break the chain of causation. In that way, "superseding" and "intervening" are opposites.
