In California, negligence is defined as the failure to act as a reasonable prudent person would have under the same or similar circumstances. And let me give you an example. Let’s say, you take your eyes off the roadway ahead of you, and you look at your cell phone. And you’re reading a text from your girlfriend, and when you look back up, you realize traffic is stopped in front of you. There’s not enough time, and you rear end the vehicle in front of you. That is negligence.
