Driver Negligence in Lumpkin County, Georgia
What exactly is driver negligence and how does it relate to auto accidents? Driver negligence refers to when a driver fails to act responsibly when behind the wheel, or when they fail to execute the highest standards of care when driving. Common examples of driver negligence include:
- Texting while driving
- Drunk driving
- Reckless driving
- Talking or dialing on a cellular phone
- Other forms of driver distraction

Any type of activity that takes the driver's hands off the wheel, eyes off the road or mind of the task of driving are considered driver distraction. All forms of driver distraction increase the likelihood of getting into an auto accident.
