Do I have a personal injury case if I am involved in an one vehicle accident?
There are a couple of ways you may still have a case when you wreck your own car.
- There may have been a vehicle defect which rendered your car inoperable or dangerous in some manner. This can be due to your mechanic’s negligence, or a vehicle defect. Also, if the vehicle’s seatbelts, roof rigidity, or airbags did not operate effectively, you may have a case against the manufacturer of the vehicle.
- If another vehicle cut you off and caused you to wreck your own car, then you may have a case against that defendant. First, our investigators would try and find the defendant who caused the accident. Secondly, if that defendant fled the scene we could pursue a case against your own Uninsured Motorist Coverage policy (if you carry Uninsured Motorist Coverage). It is worthy to note, that proving that someone ran you off the road and that person was the proximate cause of the accident is an uphill battle. Paint transfer from the defendant’s vehicle is a tell-tale sign of a collision which caused you to lose control of your car.
