Neg­li­gent Driving

The per­son, or party, at fault in a car acci­dent is deter­mined by the law of neg­li­gence. When a per­son chooses to get behind the wheel of a car and drive, they are sub­ject to uphold­ing a “Duty of Care” to those they share the roads with. This duty sim­ply means that they will abide by the laws and reg­u­la­tions in place to ensure the safety of oth­ers. When dri­vers breach this duty, by engag­ing in neg­li­gent dri­ving prac­tices, then seri­ous injury can take place. Exam­ples of neg­li­gent dri­ving behav­iors that cause Austin auto­mo­bile acci­dents, but not lim­ited to, are:
