Cases We Handle

Although single-car accidents are sometimes the driver’s fault, this is not always the case, and you should never automatically assume that you are the only one to blame. Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, Accident & Injury Lawyers, Ltd. handles cases when the driver is not liable for their single-car accident. For example, you should contact our firm if any of these circumstances apply to you:

The accident was due to another driver’s negligence. That driver may be liable for your injuries even if you never hit them.

The accident was due to defective vehicle parts. The vehicle manufacturer may be liable. Vehicle manufacturers are held to a higher standard, as we rely on their products to safely get us to and from the places we need to be.

The accident was due to dangerous road conditions. The government may be liable for the damages. When we are driving on public roads, we trust that various entities of the government are taking responsibility to maintain the safety of these public roads. Suing the government isn’t easy, but it is possible, and you should still contact a lawyer in this scenario.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions we hear regarding single-car accidents.

When is a driver liable for single-car accidents?

A driver is liable for a single-car accident when their actions were the cause of the collision. These actions can include negligence, distraction, drowsiness, or intoxication.

What if the single-car accident was caused by dangerous weather conditions?

Unfortunately, the driver is still liable. If the weather causes unfavorable driving conditions, we recommend taking extra precautions, keeping a safe distance between you and other drivers, and even staying home.

What if the single-car accident was caused by a pothole?

Unfortunately, the driver is still liable. Insurance companies will not cover damages caused to you or your vehicles due to potholes, as these accidents are too wide-spread and are avoidable. However, new vehicle warranties may cover the cost of new tires.

What if the single-car accident was caused by swerving to avoid hitting an animal?

Unfortunately, the driver is still liable. Swerving to miss an animal is often a natural reaction. However, this is dangerous to yourself and other drivers on the road. It is best to hit the animal. To avoid animal accidents, we recommend staying alert and driving slowly in locations with high populations of deer.

What if the single-car accident was caused by reckless driving or intoxication?

If this is the case, we recommend you contact a lawyer immediately to understand your legal options and to protect your rights.

What are the outcomes if you were responsible for a single-car accident?

Outcomes may include receiving a traffic ticket from law enforcement, financial loss from paying your own bills, and even criminal charges.
