download-4A single-vehicle accident can be every bit as serious as a crash involving multiple cars.  Some people think that single vehicle accidents mean that the driver is always at fault and that there is nothing they can to recover for their injuries, including pain and suffering, medical bills and missed time from work.   That is simply not true.

Many factors beyond the control of the driver can lead to single vehicle collisions,including poor weather conditions, road conditions, and defects in your vehicle either from the manufacturer or from a negligent repair by a mechanic.  Any of these problems may have caused your accident and injuries. At The Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Glassman, our Boston accident attorneys have helped many clients recover for their injuries sustained in single-vehicle accidents and can help you as well.

In many states, that number climbs to over 60 perecent. Some common examples of such accidents include but are not limited to: running off the road, debris in the roadway, a dangerous object left in the road, poor road repairs and evasive maneuvers to avoid crashes with another driver.
