What is Negligence?

Negligence in the context of a car crash refers to the failure of a driver to exercise reasonable care while operating a vehicle, resulting in harm or damage to others. It involves a breach of the duty of care that all drivers owe to fellow drivers sharing the road. To establish negligence in a car accident, the following elements are typically considered:

  • Duty of Care: The driver must owe a duty of care to others on the road, which is a fundamental obligation to operate their vehicle responsibly and safely.
  • Breach of Duty: There must be a breach of this duty, indicating that the driver failed to meet the standard of care expected in a given situation. This could involve actions like speeding, distracted driving, or disobeying traffic laws.
  • Causation: The breach of duty must be a direct cause of the accident. In legal terms, it must be shown that the accident would not have occurred “but for” the negligent actions of the driver.
  • Damages: There must be actual harm or damages resulting from the accident, such as injuries, property damage, or other losses.

If these elements are proven, the driver may be deemed negligent, and they could be held legally responsible for the damages caused. It is in your best interest to seek representation from a Texas car accident lawyer right away.
