Scene of the Accident
View from the Road
Unfortunately, people often see accidents like this and assume — before knowing all the facts — that it happened because of something the driver did. While it’s true that drivers often cause their own accidents, they’re not the only reason they’re caused. I’ve seen several single-vehicle wrecks in my time that have happened through no fault of the driver, or anyone else in the car. Often times, automobile parts are defective and recalled. We hear so much about them that we tend to ignore the information. That turns out to be a mistake, because that information can literally save lives. If this accident happened because of a defect in the car itself, then liability for the crash could fall on the manufacturer.
