Even though multiple parties are typically involved in auto accidents, there is no guarantee that there will be another driver involved in every collision.
There are a variety of circumstances that could lead to a single-vehicle accident. These kinds of collisions actually occur more frequently than one might think.
If you are the only vehicle involved in the collision, you might believe that you are automatically at fault and that you are responsible for paying for your own damages.
However, this is not always the case. There are situations in which you have the legal right to seek compensation from another party, even if your vehicle was the only one that crashed.
It is imperative for drivers to be familiar with the legal ramifications of single-car accidents as well as the various options for recovery that are available.
A driver is responsible for a single-vehicle accident if their actions are the direct cause of the crash. Proximate cause means that their actions set in motion the events that led to the crash.
