Even though it is common for there to be more than one vehicle involved in a car accident, this does not necessarily mean there always will be. There are numerous factors that could lead to an accident involving a single vehicle. These types of accidents occur more frequently than one might think.
If your vehicle is the only one involved in the accident, you may believe you are automatically at fault and must pay for your own damages. However, this is not always the case. Even if your vehicle was the only one involved in the crash, you have the legal right to seek compensation from another party under certain circumstances.
Drivers must be aware of the legal consequences of single-car accidents, as well as the various recovery options available.
Another driver could be held accountable for a single-vehicle collision if their actions contributed to it. Proximate cause means that their actions set in motion the events that led to the crash.
