What could be considered negligence behind the wheel?
Traffic laws place the responsibility of maintaining safety on the road
in the hands of those of us behind the wheel. Failing to meet these responsibilities
can constitute negligence and, unfortunately, giving these duties our
full, undivided attention can be difficult for some drivers.
Negligence while driving can include:
- Excessive speeding or reckless driving
- Losing control of the vehicle
- Not maintaining proper following distance (tailgating)
- Not properly maintaining your car (i.e failing to replace things like tires
or brakes when worn)
- Using a cell phone without a hands-free device (distracted driving)

or any other factors of negligence could have been at play, you need an
experienced Durham car accident lawyer on your side. At Twiggs, Strickland
