In order to win your Pennsylvania auto accident case, you must prove that the other driver was negligent and that the other driver's negligence caused your injuries. What is negligence?  The legal definition of negligence is the doing of something that a reasonably prudent person wouldn't do or the failure to do something that a reasonable person would do.  Negligence is similar to carelessness.

Some common examples of negligence, or carelessness, include when the other driver fails to pay attention, runs a stop sign or red light, drives too fast for conditions, drives the wrong way or in the wrong lane, or is under the influence of alcohol (DUI).  Of course, cell phone use and texting while driving (both of which have become more common, especially with young drivers) often lead to the sort of distracted driving that causes accidents.
