Common law rule of negligence that imposes liability on an individual who had one last opportunity to avoid an accident but did not take it. An example is a driver who could have avoided hitting another automobile by applying his brakes but did not do so. One reason for not avoiding or even causing an accident is a desire to collect insurance proceeds.
