Car accidents of all kinds can be devastating. But in certain ways, single-vehicle accidents can be particularly difficult on victims and their families. After all, can anyone but the catastrophically injured or deceased driver have been to blame for the tragedy? The answer is yes.
Simply because only one vehicle is impacted in a single-vehicle crash does not mean that the injured or deceased driver of the affected vehicle caused the accident or caused the accident alone. We have noted before that every day in the United States, approximately 115 individuals perish as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Hundreds more are catastrophically injured. And there are numerous reasons why these serious and fatal accidents occur.
