We propose that causality and blame judgments depend on (1) particular institutional domain of the action, (2) type of actor (individual, corporate or institutional actor), (3) type of inadvertent damage (property damage or health damage) and (4) “remoteness” of damage from its originator (immediate damage to an agent performing an action in a new situation created by the originator’s action either damage to a third party).
