Negligence generally means the failure to act as a prudent person would act in the same or similar circumstances. So what does negligence mean with regard to a car accident? There are a number of circumstances that can lead to a finding of negligence on the part of a defendant driver in a car accident. The driver may have failed to maintain a proper lookout, failed to control speed, failed to exercise proper control of the vehicle, failed to apply brakes to avoid the collision, or failed to turn the vehicle to avoid the collision. In each of these situations, the driver that caused the car accident failed to act as an ordinarily prudent person under the circumstances, namely while driving on a public roadway.
