WHAT CONSTITUTES NEGLIGENCE IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
Anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car accepts a major responsibility to avoid causing accidents. Driving an automobile entails piloting several thousands of pounds of steel down the road or highway at speeds that are great enough to injure, maim, or kill another person in the event of a collision. Many drivers, however, fail to realize just how important it is to take every possible precaution to prevent a crash. When a driver’s careless or reckless actions on the road constitute a failure to live up to reasonable standards of safety, he or she can – and should – be held accountable for negligence.
