This exists in contrast to a higher-level ultimate cause (or distal cause) which is usually thought of as the "real" reason something occurred. Thus, Rommel Abrogar having voluntarily participated in the race, with his parents' consent, assumed all the risks of the race.75, The doctrine of assumption of risk means that one who voluntarily exposes himself to an obvious, known and appreciated danger assumes the risk of injury that may result therefrom.76 It rests on the fact that the person injured has consented to relieve the defendant of an obligation of conduct toward him and to take his chance of injury from a known risk, and whether the former has exercised proper caution or not is immaterial.77 In other words, it is based on voluntary consent, express or implied, to accept danger of a known and appreciated risk; it may sometimes include acceptance of risk arising from the defendant's negligence, but one does not ordinarily assume risk of any negligence which he does not know and appreciate.78 As a defense in negligence cases, therefore, the doctrine requires the concurrence of three elements, namely: (1) the plaintiff must know that the risk is present; (2) he must further understand its nature; and (3) his choice to incur it must be free and voluntary.79 According to Prosser:80 "Knowledge of the risk is the watchword of assumption of risk.". 97 Presidential Decree No. Moreover, the Isuzu truck sustained extensive damages on its cowl, chassis, lights and steering wheel, amounting to ₱142,757.40.14. To understand the difference between the causes, you first need to understand the concept of negligence. Evidence must be presented that the victim, if not yet employed at the time of death, was reasonably certain to complete training for a specific profession. 2d 962, 167 N .J .7. For one, the police authorities specifically prohibited Intergames from blocking Don Mariano Marcos Highway in order not to impair road accessibility to the residential villages located beyond the IBP Lanc.49. The judgment of the Regional Trial Court of Valenzuela City, Branch 172 dated January 31, 2001, is MODIFIED, in that the award of ₱1,000.00 per day from March 1997 up to November 1997 representing unrealized income is DELETED. "Assumption of the risk in its primary sense arises by assuming through contract, which may be implied, the risk of a known danger. In the case at bar, having established respondents� right to compensatory damages, exemplary damages are also in order, given the fact that Mendoza was grossly negligent in driving the Mayamy bus. a If my mind does not fail me, your honor, I met him twice because he lives just within our area and we always see each other. 518, 522 (1978). In the present case, the award of costs of suit to respondents, as the prevailing party, is in order. "33 The Civil Code makes liability for negligence clear under Article 2176,34 and Article 20.35, To determine the existence of negligence, the following time-honored test has been set in Picart v. Smith:36. Neither was the waiver by Rommel, then a minor, an effective form of express or implied consent in the context of the doctrine of assumption of risk. Is it Enriquez, the actual owner of the bus or Lim, the registered owner of the bus? Whether or not appellant Intergames was negligent in its conduct of the "1st Pop Cola Junior Marathon" held on June 15, 1980 and if so, whether its negligence was the proximate cause of the death of Rommel Abrogar. Dear PAO, My name is being included as a suspect in an alleged homicide case. As explained by a well-known authority on torts: "The general principle underlying the defense of assumption of risk is that a plaintiff who voluntarily assumes a risk of harm arising from the negligent or reckless conduct of the defendant cannot recover for such harm. In the decision of the trial court, it stated that the risk mentioned in the waiver signed by Rommel Abrogar only involved risks such as stumbling, suffering heatstroke, heart attack and other similar risks. In the case at bar, although the award of exemplary damages is unliquidated in the sense that petitioners cannot know for sure, before judgment, the exact amount that they are required to pay to respondents, the award of actual or compensatory damages, however, such as the truck repairs and medical expenses, is arguably liquidated in that they can be measured against a reasonably certain standard.55 Moreover, justice would seem to require that the delay in paying for past losses which can be made reasonably certain should be compensated through an award of interest.56. 47 G.R. The proximate cause of an injury is that cause that, in the natural and continuous sequence, unbroken by any efficient intervening cause, produces the injury, and without which the result would not have occurred. The proximate cause of an injury is that cause which, in natural and continuous sequence, unbroken by any efficient intervening cause, produces the injury and without which the result would not have occurred. Since Rommel was 18 years of age at the time of his death, his life expectancy was 41 years. The RTC observed that the safeguards allegedly instituted by Intergames in conducting the marathon had fallen short of the yardstick to satisfy the requirements of due diligence as called for by and appropriate under the circumstances; that the accident had happened because of inadequate preparation and Intergames' failure to exercise due diligence;19 that the respondents could not be excused from liability by hiding behind the waiver executed by Rommel and the permission given to him by his parents because the waiver could only be effective for risks inherent in the marathon, such a:s stumbling, heat stroke, heart attack during the race, severe exhaustion and similar occurrences;20 that the liability of the respondents towards the participants and third persons was solidary, because Cosmos, the sponsor of the event, had been the principal mover of the event, and, as such, had derived benefits from the marathon that in turn had carried responsibilities towards the participants and the public; that the respondents' agreement to free Cosmos from any liability had been an agreement binding only between them, and did not bind third persons; and that Cosmos had a cause of action against Intergames for whatever could be recovered by the petitioners from Cosmos.21, The petitioners contended that the RTC erred in not awarding damages for loss of earning capacity on the part of Rommel for the reason that such damages were not recoverable due to Rommel not yet having finished his schooling; and that it would be premature to award such damages upon the assumption that he would finish college and be gainfully employed.22, On their part, Cosmos and Intergames separately raised essentially similar errors on the part of the RTC, to wit: (1) in holding them liable for the death of Rommel; (2) in finding them negligent in conducting the marathon; (3) in holding that Rommel and his parents did not assume the risks of the marathon; (4) in not holding that the sole and proximate cause of the death of Rommel was the negligence of the jeepney driver; and (5) in making them liable, jointly and solidarily, for damages, attorney's fees and expenses of litigation.23. q Following the observation of the Court, considering the local condition, you will agree with me the risks here are greater than in the United States where drivers on the whole follow traffic rules? 27 G.R. Rommel Abrogar cannot be faulted because he was performing a legal act; the marathon was conducted with the permission and approval of all the city officials involved. q So you did not have let us say a ... you don't have records of your meetings with these people? Even if there were fences or barriers to separate the lanes for the runners and for the vehicles, it would not prevent such an accident in the event that a negligent driver loses control of his vehicle. 647; Everton Silica Sand Co. v. Hicks, 1939, 197 Ark. This Court finds that the trial court erred in holding appellant Cosmos liable for being the principal mover and resultant beneficiary of the event. It is worthy to stress that proper coordination in the context of the event did not consist in the mere presence of the volunteers, but included making sure that they had been properly instructed on their duties and tasks in order to ensure the safety of the young runners. Q But the fact is that the people did not agree. ROMULO ABROGAR and ERLINDA ABROGAR, Petitioners 12-13; Testimony of Gomez. To my mind, I cannot believe this because, although the... Read more. b. Exemplary damages in spite of the fact that there is no finding that the vehicular accident was due to petitioner-driver�s gross negligence to be entitled thereto pursuant to Article 2231 of the New Civil Code and pertinent decisions of the Supreme Court to that effect. 21 TOLENTINO, Civil Code of the Philippines, Vol. 1976, 534 S. W.2d 916; Klein v. R.D. The formula for this purpose is: Net Earning Capacity = Life Expectancy x [Gross Annual Income less Necessary Living Expenses ]96. 86-88; penned by Judge Floro P. Alejo. The issues revolve on whether the organizer and the sponsor of the marathon were guilty of negligence, and, if so, was their negligence the proximate cause of the death of the participant; on whether the negligence of the driver of the passenger jeepney was an efficient intervening cause; on whether the doctrine of assumption of risk was applicable to the fatality; and on whether the heirs of the fatality can recover damages for loss of earning capacity of the latter who, being then a minor, had no gainful employment. 97412, July 12, 1994, 234 SCRA 78) embodying BSP-MB Circular No. (People v. Villacorta, 672 Phil. The route of the race could still be safe for runners if a proper coordination or the agencies are notified especially police detailees to man the particular stage.58. 63. In Filcar Transport Services v. Espinas,27 we held that the registered owner is deemed the employer of the negligent driver, and is thus vicariously liable under Article 2176, in relation to Article 2180, of the Civil Code. Ordering the [petitioners] except Enriquez to pay [respondents] the costs of suit.18. In this case, appellant Cosmos was not negligent in entering into a contract with the appellant Intergames considering that the record of the latter was clean and that it has conducted at least thirty (30) road races. a Normally, sir, many of the races don't have that except when they called them to meeting either as a whole group or the entire cooperating agency or meet them per group. The submission that Intergames had previously conducted numerous safe races did not persuasively demonstrate that it had exercised due diligence because, as the trial court pointedly observed, "[t]hey were only lucky that no accident occurred during the previous marathon races but still the danger was there."73. The evidence presented undoubtedly established that Intergames' notion of coordination only involved informing the cooperating agencies of the date of the race, the starting and ending points of the route, and the places along the route to man. In McLeod Store v. Vinson 213 Ky 667, 281 SW 799 (1926), it was held that a boy, seventeen years of age, of ordinary intelligence and physique, who entered a race conducted by a department store, the purpose of which was to secure guinea fowl which could be turned in for cash prizes, had assumed the ordinary risks incident thereto and was barred from recovering against the department store for injuries suffered when, within catching distance, he stopped to catch a guinea, and was tripped or stumbled and fell to the pavement, six or eight others falling upon him. It may not be the first event that set in motion a sequence of events that led to an injury, and it may not be the very last event before the injury occurs. The shortage must not … Such familiarity of the organizer with the route and the fact that previous races had been conducted therein without any untoward incident56 were not in themselves sufficient safeguards. (1109a). No. Ordering the [petitioners] except Enriquez to pay [respondents], jointly and severally, the amount of ₱100,000.00 as moral damages, plus a separate amount of ₱50,000.00 as exemplary damages; 4. And more comprehensively, 'the proximate legal cause is that acting first and producing the injury, either immediately or by setting other events in motion, all constituting a natural and continuous chain of events, each having a close causal connection with its immediate predecessor, the final event in the chain immediately effecting the injury as a natural and probable result of the cause which first acted, under such circumstances that the person responsible for the first event should, as an ordinarily prudent and intelligent person, have reasonable ground to expect at the moment of his act or default that an injury to some person might probably result therefrom. Respondents cannot rely on Article 2219 (2) of the Civil Code which allows moral damages in quasi-delicts causing physical injuries because in physical injuries, moral damages are recoverable only by the injured party,41 and in the case at bar, herein respondents were not the ones who were actually injured. Engaged in the business of buying plastic scraps and delivering them to recycling plants, respondents claimed that the Isuzu truck was vital in the furtherance of their business. If the disease is the proximate cause of the employee’s death for which compensation is sought, the previous physical condition of the employee is unimportant, and recovery may be had for said death, independently of any pre-existing disease. 29 Filcar Transport Services v. Espinas, supra note 28 at 130. Lomotan, et al.,42 the Court, in a claim for damages based on quasi-delict causing physical injuries, similarly disallowed an award of moral damages to the owners of the damaged vehicle, when neither of them figured in the accident and sustained injuries. 414, 432 (1997). 92 G.R. The risk referred to is the particular risk, or one of the risks, which the plaintiff accepted within the context of the situation in which he placed himself and the question is whether the specific conduct or condition which caused the injury was such a risk.". Moreover, it was not proven that Mendoza intended to injure Perez, et al. Based on the foregoing testimony of Castro, Jr., Intergames had full awareness of the higher risks involved in staging the race alongside running vehicles, and had the option to hold the race in a route where such risks could be minimized, if not eliminated. In a road race, there is always the risk of runners being hit by motor vehicles while they train or compete. As such, these are the amounts that respondents are entitled to as actual and compensatory damages. I am not interested in the Citizen Traffic Action Group. The evidence on record shows that before the collision, the Isuzu truck was in its rightful lane, and was even at a stop, having been flagged down by a security guard of St. Ignatius Village.23 The mishap occurred when the Mayamy bus, travelling at a fast speed as shown by the impact of the collision, and going in the opposite direction as that of the Isuzu truck, encroached on the lane rightfully occupied by said Isuzu truck, and caused the latter to spin, injuring Perez, Anla, Banca, and Repisada, and considerably damaging the Isuzu truck. In order for liability from negligence to arise, there must be not only proof of damage and negligence, but also proof that the damage was the consequence of the negligence. Gross negligence is more than simple carelessness or failure to act. 69 See Pullman Palace Car Co. v. Laack, 143 111. Accordingly, we emphatically hold in favor of the indemnification for Aaron's loss of earning capacity despite him having been unemployed, because compensation of this nature is awarded not for loss of time or earnings but for loss of the deceased's power or ability to earn money. It did not consider vehicular accident as one of the risks included in the said waiver. A: I have incurred expenses and I was forced to apply for a loan, sir. Although many actual causes can exist for an injury (e.g., a pregnancy that led to the defendant's birth), the law does not attach liability to all the actors responsible for those causes. This Court does not agree. The chosen route (IBP Lane, on to Don Mariano Marcos Highway, and then to Quezon City Hall) was not the only route appropriate for the marathon. Negligence is the failure to observe for the protection of the interests of another person that degree of care, precaution, and vigilance which the circumstances justly demand, whereby such other person suffers injury.32 Under Article 1173 of the Civil Code, it consists of the "omission of that diligence which is required by the nature of the obligation and corresponds with the circumstances of the person, of the time and of the place. The question as to what would constitute the conduct of a prudent man in a given situation must of course be always determined in the light of human experience and of the acts involved in the particular case. Many people love to talk about the causes of significant events in their lives (if I hadn’t missed the bus that day I would never have met my partner! Is that correct? The CA Decision, on the other hand, merely stated that the award of attorney�s fees is merited as such is allowed when exemplary damages are awarded.50 Following established jurisprudence,51 however, the CA should have disallowed on appeal said award of attorney�s fees as the RTC failed to substantiate said award. By this appeal, the parents of the late Rommel Abrogar (Rommel), a marathon runner, seek the review and reversal of the decision promulgated on March l 0, 2004,1 whereby the Court of Appeals (CA) reversed and set aside the judgment rendered in their favor on May 10, 1991 by the Regional Trial Court (RTC), Branch 83, in Quezon City2 finding and declaring respondents Cosmos Bottling Company (Cosmos), a domestic soft-drinks company whose products included Pop Cola, and Intergames, Inc. (Intergames), also a domestic corporation organizing and supervising the 1st Pop Cola Junior Marathon" held on June 15, 1980 in Quezon City, solidarily liable for damages arising from the untimely death of Rommel, then a minor 18 years of age,3 after being bumped by a recklessly driven passenger jeepney along the route of the marathon. In the case at bar, the RTC Decision had nil discussion on the propriety of attorney�s fees, and it merely awarded such in the dispositive. First of all, Intergames' negligence in not conducting the race in a road blocked off from vehicular traffic, and in not properly coordinating the volunteer personnel manning the marathon route effectively set the stage for the injury complained of. The award of ₱142,757.40 for the cost of repair of the damaged vehicle, the award of ₱100,000.00 as moral damages, the award of ₱50,000.00 as exemplary damages, the award of ₱50,000.00 as attorney�s fees and the costs of the suit are hereby MAINTAINED.19, Unsatisfied with the CA ruling, petitioners filed an appeal by certiorari before the Court, raising the following issues:20. Respondent Intergames' preparations for the race, including the number of marshal during the marathon, were glaringly inadequate to prevent the happening of the injury to its participants. q You were aware for a runner to run on the same route of the traffic would be risky because he would not know what is coming behind him? There must be some planning, now are you saying that in this particular case you had no written plan or check list of activities what activities have to be implemented on a certain point and time, who are the persons whom you must meet in a certain point and time. 175172, 29 September 2009, 601 SCRA 270, 288. The running amuck of the passenger was the proximate cause of the incident as it triggered off a commotion and panic among passengers started running to the sole exit shoving each other resulting in the falling off the passengers Beter and Rautraut causing them fatal injuries. In its assailed judgment promulgated on March 10, 2004,25 the CA ruled as follows: As to the first issue, this Court finds that appellant Intergames was not negligent in organizing the said marathon. Having settled the fact of Mendoza�s negligence, then, the next question that confronts us is who may beheld liable. 1 Rollo, pp. q From your house? 1982, 667 F.2d 760; Scoggins v. Jude, D.C. App. In the case at bar, Mendoza�s violation of traffic laws was the proximate cause of the harm. Moral damages are awarded to enable the injured party to obtain means, diversions or amusements that will serve to alleviate the moral suffering he has undergone, by reason of the defendant's culpable action.35, In prayers for moral damages, however, recovery is more an exception rather than the rule. Thus, it cannot be denied that vehicular accidents are involved. We consider the "safeguards" employed and adopted by Intergames not adequate to meet the requirement of due diligence. His projected gross annual income, computed based on the minimum wage for workers in the non-agricultural sector in effect at the time of his death,97 then fixed at ₱l4.00/day, is ₱5,535.83. When a bus strikes a car, the bus drivers actions are the actual cause of the accident. Whether or not appellant Cosmos can be held jointly and solidarily liable with appellant Intergames for the death of Rommel Abrogar, assuming that appellant Intergames is found to have been negligent in the conduct of the Pop Cola marathon and such negligence was the proximate cause of the death of Rommel Abrogar. I was the one running. Intergames staunchly insists that it was not liable, maintaining that even assuming arguendo that it was negligent, the negligence of the jeepney driver was the proximate cause of the death of Rommel; hence, it should not be held liable. Attorney�s Fees. q Are you asking, your honor, as a race director of I will check this because if I do that, I won't have a race because that is not being done by any race director anywhere in the world? Moral damages are not meant to be punitive but are designed to compensate and alleviate the physical suffering, mental anguish, fright, serious anxiety, besmirched reputation, wounded feelings, moral shock, social humiliation, and similar harm unjustly caused to a person. Republic of the PhilippinesSUPREME COURTManila, G.R. 191703, 12 March 2012, 667 SCRA 782. The reason for this is found in the obvious truth that man should subordinate his acts to the precepts of prudence and if he fails to observe them and causes damage to another, he must repair the damage.24 His negligence having caused the damage, Mendoza is certainly liable to repair said damage. As borne by the records, Intergames had no personnel of its own for that purpose, and relied exclusively on the assistance of volunteers, that is, "seven (7) traffic operatives, five (5) motorcycle policemen, fifteen (15) patrolmen deployed along the route, fifteen (15) boy scouts, twelve (12) CATs, twenty (20) barangay tanods, three (3) ambulances and three (3) medical teams"57 to ensure the safety of the young runners who would be running alongside moving vehicular traffic, to make the event safe and well coordinated. Article 21 deals with acts contra bonus mores, and has the following elements: (1) There is an act which is legal; (2) but which is contrary to morals, good custom, public order, or public policy; (3) and it is done with intent to injure.43 In the present case, it can hardly be said that Mendoza�s negligent driving and violation of traffic laws are legal acts.
