However, contrary to the findings of the CA,50 Intergames had a choice on where to stage the marathon, considering its admission of the sole responsibility for the conduct of the event, including the choice of location. 94 G.R. q From your house? V, p. 633. Castro, Jr. stated as much, to wit: Q You also said that if you block off one side of the road, it is possible that it would be more convenient to hold the race in that matter.

In short, the issues raised by petitioner are: (1) whether or not negligence may be attributed to petitioner’s driver, and whether negligence on his part was the proximate cause of the accident, resulting in the death of Silvino Tan and causing physical injuries to respondent; (2) whether or not petitioner is liable to respondent for damages; and (3) whether or not the damages awarded by respondent Court of … Q In your case in all the marathons that you had managed, how many cases have you encountered where the routes are blocked off for vehicular traffic?

Intermediate Appellate Court, No. 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. Thus, the RTC disposed of the case as follows: WHEREFORE, judgment is hereby rendered in favor of the [respondents] and against the [petitioners]: 1. 2. 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. From the very opening sentence of Article 2208 of the Civil Code, it is clearly intended to retain the award of attorney�s fees as the exception in our law, as the general rule remains that attorney�s fees are not recoverable in the absence of a stipulation thereto, the reason being that it is not sound policy to set a premium on the right to litigate.48. Maria v. Court of Appeals, G. R. No. 71 I Bouvier's Law Dictionary and Concise Encyclopedia, Third Edition (1914), p. 432. race.

Depano. I, p. 1. 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. The test by which to determine the existence of negligence in a particular case may be stated as follows: Did the defendant in doing the alleged negligent act use that reasonable care and caution which an ordinarily prudent person would have used in the same situation? Having identified the persons liable, our next question is what may be awarded. Did you say that it is possible to hold a marathon safely if you have this traffic assistance or coordination even if the route is blocked or not blocked? a As far as the Cosmos Bottling Company (sic) was a sponsor as to the actual conduct of the race, it is my responsibility. Additionally, respondents averred that the mishap deprived them of a daily income of ₱1,000.00. No. Negligence is defined as 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.21. Finally, medical equipments and personnel were also requested from Camp Aguinaldo, the Philippine Red Cross and the Hospital ng Bagong Lipunan. 2 Id. This is usually brought up when something has gone wrong, such as an automobile accident in which someone was injured, and refers to the non-injured party’s legal responsibility for the event. 15 TSN, 13 April 1999, p. 2; Testimony of Gutierrez. 1, Rule 142 of the Rules of Court. The issue of whether one or both defendants were negligent is a mixed issue of fact and law. a I believed we argued along that line but but (sic) again, if we insist the police again would not grant us any permit like ... except in the case of Roxas Boulevard when it is normally closed from 8 a.m. when you can run against the flow of traffic.

We agree with the characterization. A careful review of the evidence presented, particularly the testimonies of the relevant witnesses, in accordance with the foregoing guidelines reasonably leads to the conclusion that the safety and precautionary measures undertaken by Intergames were short of the diligence demanded by the circumstances of persons, time and place under consideration. The sponsorship of the marathon by Cosmos was limited to financing the race. It is an act or omission that is considered in law to result in a consequence, so that liability can be imposed on the actor. ), In accordance with the decision of the Supreme Court of Spain, in order that a person may be held guilty for damage through negligence, it is necessary that there be an act or omission on the part of the person who is to be charged with the liability and that damage is produced by the said act or omission.65 (Emphasis supplied). Indeed, the failure of Intergames to adopt the basic precautionary measures for the safety of the minor participants like Rommel was in reckless disregard of their safety. The formula for this purpose is: Net Earning Capacity = Life Expectancy x [Gross Annual Income less Necessary Living Expenses ]96. Republic of the PhilippinesSUPREME COURTManila, G.R. They are not, and are not supposed to be, omniscient of the future. : Art. It is willful behavior done with extreme disregard for the health and safety of others. Owing to the incident, an Information for reckless imprudence resulting in damage to property and multiple physical injuries was filed against Mendoza.9 Mendoza, however, eluded arrest, thus, respondents filed a separate complaint for damages against Mendoza and Lim, seeking actual damages, compensation for lost income, moral damages, exemplary damages, attorney�s fees and costs of the suit.10 This was docketed as Civil Case No. Costs ordinarily follow results of suit.- Unless otherwise provided in these rules, costs shall be allowed to the prevailing party as a matter of course, but the court shall have power, for special reasons, to adjudge that either party shall pay the costs of an action, or that the same be divided, as may be equitable. 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. Castro, Jr. described the action plan adopted by Intergames in the preparation for the race, as follows: a Did you have any rehearsal let us say the race was conducted on June 15, now before June 15 you call a meeting of all these runners so you can have more or less a map-up and you would indicate or who will be stationed in their places etc. q Following the question of the Court Mr. Castro, did you meet with Lt. Depano of the Police Department who were supposed to supervise the police officers assigned to help during the race? The petitioners sufficiently showed that Rommel was, at the time of his untimely but much lamented death, able-bodied, in good physical and mental state, and a student in good standing.95 It should be reasonable to assume that Rommel would have finished his schooling and would turn out to be a useful and productive person had he not died. 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. 29 Filcar Transport Services v. Espinas, supra note 28 at 130. For these deprivation, their heirs are entitled to compensation. This verity was expressly confirmed by Intergames, through Castro, Jr., who declared as follows: q Do you discuss all your preparation with Cosmos Bottling Company?

Court should have granted instructions dealing with “sufficient to have caused” standard. Trial court erred in failing to sustain objections to “substantial contributing factor” jury instructions. Interests.1�wphi1 Interest by way of damages has been defined as interest allowed in actions for breach of contractor tort for the unlawful detention of money already due. Proximate Cause - the cause, which in the natural and continuous sequence unbroken by any efficient intervening cause, produces the injury, without which the result would not have occurred. 2d 142, 145, 196 Md. v. Medina,67 the Court, borrowing from American Jurisprudence, has more extensively defined proximate cause thusly: "* * * '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.' (1109a). "superseding cause," in which case the subsequent peril becomes the proximate cause. Whether or not the appellants Abrogar are entitled to be compensated for the "loss of earning capacity" of their son Rommel. 111. Stated differently, nobody in his right mind, including minors like him, would have joined the marathon if he had known of or appreciated the risk of harm or even death from vehicular accident while running in the organized running event. Article 2199 of the same Code, however, sets the limitation that, except as provided by law or by stipulation, one is entitled to an adequate compensation only for such pecuniary loss suffered by him as he has duly proved. q Did you have a check list of the activities that would have to be entered before the actual marathon some kind of system where you will indicate this particular activity has to be checked etc. The use of the name Cosmos was done for advertising purposes only; it did not mean that it was an organizer of the said marathon. "Of course, if the defense is predicated upon an express agreement the agreement must be valid, and in the light of this qualification the rule has been stated that a plaintiff who, by contract or otherwise, expressly agreed to accept a risk of harm arising from the defendant's negligent or reckless conduct, cannot recover for such harm unless the agreement is invalid as contrary to public policy. Nonetheless, the CA did not err in absolving Cosmos from liability. 84 Id., citing Aides v. St. Paul Baseball Club, 1958, 251 Minn. 440, 88 N.W.2d 94; Freedman v. Hurwitz, 1933, 116 Conn. 283, 164 A. [Seagull Shipmanagement and Transport, Inc. vs. NLRC, 333 SCRA 236(2000)] 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. The claimant must thus establish the factual basis of the damages and its causal tie with the acts of the defendant.36, In fine, an award of moral damages calls for the presentation of 1) evidence of besmirched reputation or physical, mental or psychological suffering sustained by the claimant; 2)a culpable act or omission factually established; 3) proof that the wrongful act or omission of the defendant is the proximate cause of the damages sustained by the claimant; and 4) the proof that the act is predicated on any of the instances expressed or envisioned by Article 2219 and Article 2220 of the Civil Code.37, A review of the complaint and the transcript of stenographic notes yields the pronouncement that respondents neither alleged nor offered any evidence of besmirched reputation or physical, mental or psychological suffering incurred by them. The particular unit assigned during the race underwent extensive training and had been involved in past marathons, including marathons in highly crowded areas. The law considers what would be reckless, blameworthy, or negligent in the man of ordinary intelligence and prudence and determines liability by that. Intergames did not conduct any general assembly with all of them, being content with holding a few sporadic meetings with the leaders of the coordinating agencies. Thus, whether there is an employer-employee relationship between the registered owner and the driver is irrelevant in determining the liability of the registered owner who the law holds primarily and directly responsible for any accident, injury or death caused by the operation of the vehicle in the streets and highways.29. 127549, January 28, 1998, 285 SCRA 351, 357-358; Fuentes v. Court of Appeals, G. R. No. L-21291, March 28, 1969, 27 SCRA 674. It is conduct likely to cause foreseeable harm. v. MRR Co., 124 Phil.

Article 2208 of the Civil Code enumerates the instances when attorney�s fees may be recovered: Art. On October 28, 1980, the petitioners sued the respondents in the then Court of First Instance of Rizal (Quezon City) to recover various damages for the untimely death of Rommel (i.e., actual and compensatory damages, loss of earning capacity, moral damages, exemplary damages, attorney's fees and expenses oflitigation).5, Cosmos denied liability, insisting that it had not been the organizer of the marathon, but only its sponsor; that its participation had been limited to providing financial assistance to Intergames;6 that the financial assistance it had extended to Intergames, the sole organizer of the marathon, had been in answer to the Government's call to the private sector to help promote sports development and physical fitness;7 that the petitioners had no cause of action against it because there was no privity of contract between the participants in the marathon and Cosmos; and that it had nothing to do with the organization, operation and running of the event.8, As counterclaim, Cosmos sought attorney's fees and expenses of litigation from the petitioners for their being unwarrantedly included as a defendant in the case. In the absence of evidence showing that Cosmos had a hand in the organization of the race, and took part in the determination of the route for the race and the adoption of the action plan, including the safety and security measures for the benefit of the runners, we cannot but conclude that the requirement for the direct or immediate causal connection between the financial sponsorship of Cosmos and the death of Rommel simply did not exist. g How about Serrano, where did you meet him? q Did you have any action, plan or brochure which would indicate the assignment of each of the participating group? The rate of interest provided under Article 2209 of the Civil Code is 6% per annum in the absence of stipulation to the contrary. II, p. 754. 157917, August 29, 2012, 679 SCRA 208, 234. (Taylor vs. Manila Electric Railroad and Light Co., supra, p. 553-554. 34 TOLENTINO, Civil Code of the Philippines, Vol. Cosmos did nothing beyond that, and did not involve itself at all in the preparations for the actual conduct of the race. Conduct is reckless when it is an extreme departure from ordinary care, in a situation in which a high degree of danger is apparent; it must be more than any mere mistake resulting from inexperience, excitement, or confusion, and more than mere thoughtlessness or inadvertence, or simple inattention.89 The RTC did not recognize the right of the petitioners to recover the loss of earning capacity of Rommel. at 109, citing King v. Brenham Automobile Co., 145 S. W. 278, 279. Another way of saying this is: A defendant's tort cannot be considered a legal cause of plaintiffs damage if that damage would have occurred just the same even though the defendant's tort had not been committed. The trial court again erred in concluding that the admission of P/Lt. We consider the "safeguards" employed and adopted by Intergames not adequate to meet the requirement of due diligence. It is not merely distance of place or of causation that renders a cause remote. 519. q How about with Panelo, how many times did you meet him? 24 SANGCO, Torts and Damages, Vol. 36 Regala v. Carin, G.R. In this case, appellant Romulo Abrogar himself admitted that his son, Rommel Abrogar, surveyed the route of the marathon and even attended a briefing before the race. Moral damages in spite of the fact that the [respondents�] cause of action is clearly based on quasi-delict and [respondents] did not sustain physical injuries to be entitled thereto pursuant to Article 2219 (2) of the New Civil Code and pertinent decisions of the Supreme Court to that effect. UPON THE VIEW WE TAKE OF THIS CASE, THUS, the judgment appealed from must be, as it hereby is, REVERSED and SET ASIDE, and another entered DISMISSING the complaint a quo. 71877, which affirmed with modification the Decision2 dated 31 January 2001 of the Regional Trial Court (RTC), Branch 172, Valenzuela City in Civil Case No. 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. 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. Accordingly, appellant Intergames is only bound to exercise the degree of care that would be exercised by an ordinarily careful and prudent man in the same position and circumstances and not that of the cautious man of more than average prudence. 21 TOLENTINO, Civil Code of the Philippines, Vol. 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. And considering that he was already eighteen years of age, had voluntarily participated in the marathon, with his parents' consent, and was well aware of the traffic hazards along the route, he thereby assumed all the risks of the race. 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. The negligence of Intergames as the organizerwas the proximate cause of the death of Rommel. Having settled the fact of Mendoza�s negligence, then, the next question that confronts us is who may beheld liable. In impleading Lim, on the other hand, respondents invoke the latter�s vicarious liability as espoused in Article 2180 of the same Code: The obligation imposed by Article 2176 is demandable not only for one�s own acts or omissions, but also for those of persons for whom one is responsible.
