    "...causing damage to same." or
    "...causing damage to the same."

    Re: Grammatical Phrase

    It's not phrasing I use.

    Can you rewrite ("and also damaging it/them") or is the purpose of this post to resolve this particular question?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    "...causing damage to same." This is used, usually with "and" before it, and the discription of another action before that. More context would be helpful.
