Single Vehicle Collisions
Single vehicle collisions put a heavy burden on the trial lawyer to discover exactly what happened. There are many scenarios when there is a single car crash. Was it the driver? (i.e.drunk driver) This might not be the end of the story. If the driver was underage and was knowingly served by a bar, there could be legal liability under the Dram Shop Act.
What about the vehicle? It may be a defect in the vehicle itself that caused the accident. If so, and if the injuries are serious enough, there may be a design defect or manufacturing defect case. In addition, there may have been faulty repairs done on the vehicle which led to injury or death.
Road conditions may play a part in single car injuries. Was there standing water on the road? Were there construction barrels or saw horses out of position? Was there adequate signage? Was there a large pot-hole or subsidence in the side of the road?
In a single car injury or death case, preserve the vehicle, inspect the road and interview witnesses. These steps are important to preserve your legal case.
