Single car accidents are often caused by factors beyond the driver’s control.
Mechanical failures or design defects are often to blame for single car accidents.
The Ford Explorer and Firestone tire case is a great example of this.
Investigations linked the faulty Firestone tires to 88 deaths and more than 250 injuries!
Sometimes, it is the seatbelt or airbag failing to operate properly that can cause serious injuries in single car accidents.
If you have been in a single car accident that you believe was caused by a defect in the vehicle, you need to contact an attorney immediately.
Certain critical steps, including obtaining and securing the vehicle, must be taken in order to prove there was a defect.
