Single Vehicle Accidents in GA

Alpharetta Accident Attorney

Accidents can still occur when there are no other vehicles involved. There are other obstacles in the road that can cause a crash, or the road itself may cause an accident. Crashes may not even involve a collision, as rollover accidents can be just as injurious or even fatal as a car-on-car collision. In fact, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety states that 7,420 people died in rollover accidents in 2011, and this was about 35% of all fatal crashes, even though rollovers account for only 2% of crashes that occur.

Causes of Single Vehicle Crashes

Even though driver error contributes to some of these accidents, many single vehicle crashes are still the fault of others. For example, the manufacturer may be at fault, or a vehicle may be poorly designed. Some problems that result from a vehicle being poorly made include defective brakes, steering, airbags, and seatbelts, plus such problems that lead to tire blowouts and transmission failure.

Flawed roads may be another reason why others are at fault. Construction or design of roads may have been deficient. The road may have been made with especially hard turns, or the road may lack adequate guard rails, shoulder lanes, and even important signs. Faulty construction work can produce dangerous roads, and on-ramps may not allow enough distance for safe merging. Neglect may lead to unfixed potholes, defective guardrails, or even worn down lane markers.

Were you injured in a single vehicle crash in Georgia?

You may be suffering from broken bones, serious spinal cord injuries, or even a concussion and other traumatic brain injuries. All these catastrophic injuries can cause serious pain and suffering, and a potentially long road to recovery. Even though there are no other drivers to point to, others may be at fault for your injuries, or the wrongful death of a loved one. If so, then you may be entitled to compensation to help you move on in life.

Insurance should cover you, at the very least, for medical treatment that you have already paid for and expect to pay in the future. It may also be possible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer. An experienced car accident attorney from our firm can determine the full amount that you are owed in a lawsuit, or in a settlement (which will almost certainly be more than insurance will say). Even if you have been faithfully paying your premiums, year in and year out, insurance does not want to pay out. If they do not deny your claim, they may offer you an incredibly low settlement.
