When most people think about car accidents, they imagine two or more vehicles colliding with one another. It’s easy to blame another driver in a car crash when multiple people are involved, but when you get into a car accident by yourself, it can be difficult to determine who could be at fault. Surprisingly enough, there are numerous cases in which the driver isn’t responsible in a single-car accident.
If you’ve been in an accident on the road by yourself, it’s likely that you know whether you were at fault. You may also feel like you weren’t responsible but may not be sure who or what caused your accident. At The Kindley Firm, APC, our lawyers can help investigate your accident and determine the underlying cause.
If there are other liable parties involved in your car accident case, a San Diego car accident lawyer from our firm will identify them.
Single-car accidents can occur for a variety of reasons. Although sometimes it’s the driver’s fault, this isn’t always the case. You may be able to recover compensation for your single-car accident if your crash was due to bad road conditions, a vehicle defect, a vehicle repair failure, or a vehicle equipment malfunction.
For example, if your windshield wipers malfunction, this would be considered a vehicle equipment malfunction. If your brakes go out while driving, this would be a vehicle defect. If you recently got your radiator fixed and it proves to be the reason your car crashes, then the repair company can be held liable. In all of these situations, you can recover compensation for your damages.
Speaking with an experienced attorney will ensure your accident claim is handled properly so that you ultimately receive the maximum settlement for your case. At The Kindley Firm, APC, our team has dealt with numerous car accident claims and we can ensure your case is handled with the utmost care.
