When many people think of a car accident, the first thing that comes to mind is the negligence of another driver. While many accidents involve one or more vehicle, this is not always the case. There are also times when single car accidents occur.
It’s easy to believe that the driver is solely responsible for the crash in the event of a single car accident. However, this isn’t exactly true.
Did you know that a road defect or unsafe driving conditions could cause this type of accident? Consider the following circumstances:
— Worn or damaged roadway
— Poorly maintained or designed road
— Dangerous intersection
There are many examples of road defects and unsafe driving conditions leading to a single car accident. For example, a poorly maintained shoulder, such as one that is covered in gravel, could cause you to lose control.
At our law firm, we want single car accident victims to realize that they have legal rights. There is no guarantee that you will be able to file a lawsuit as to receive compensation, but it’s something to consider. If nothing else, you should take the time to examine the details of the accident and learn more about your legal rights.
Any type of accident, regardless of how many vehicles are involved, can cause serious injury or even death. This is why you should first focus on your health and well-being. Once you understand your injuries and treatment strategy, you can then focus more of your time and attention on your legal rights and how to receive compensation.
