Each case of a single vehicle accident is different and depending on the facts there could be several potential responsible parties. In some cases, the vehicle manufacturer may be liable if your accident was a direct result of a defect in the vehicle.  In other cases, single-vehicle accidents may be direct results of poor road design or maintenance. Some examples of this poor road surfaces, including potholes, a malfunctioning traffic light or an intersection with a preventable blind spot, such as one that has been overgrown by trees and bushes.  Finally, other drivers on the road may have contributed to the single-vehicle accident. For instance, you may have been swerving to avoid colliding with a car that made an improper or unsafe turn or lane change in front of your vehicle and ended up hitting a tree instead.

Single-vehicle accidents can lead to severe and catastrophic, even deadly injuries that can be extremely costly to the victim and their family. If liability is established, the damage recovery is available to include lost wages, pain and suffering, out of pocket medical expenses and damages related to death, including funeral and burial expenses, in fatal single vehicle crashes.
