Auto accidents are not always as simple as they appear. Even when it seems obvious who is to blame, there can be factors involved that you are not aware of and those factors can have a big impact on your case.

A defective vehicle is often the true cause of an accident. This is most common in SUV rollovers, but can happen in any type of vehicle. Faulty tires, brakes, steering systems, and other components can cause an accident to occur. Even in accidents that truly were the fault of one or more drivers, vehicular defects can make injuries far worse than they had to be Learn more about common causes of accidents.

Accidents can also be caused by defective roadways. Faulty traffic signals are a good example. They can make it appear as if someone must have run a red light, when really neither driver was to blame. In some cases, if the defect that caused the accident is not revealed, an innocent driver can even face criminal charges and wind up in jail. That driver could be you if you do not have an attorney with the experience and knowledge to properly investigate the case.

 

 

  Single-Vehicle Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 90 percent of fatal single-vehicle rollover accidents occur when a driver is engaged in standard driving maneuvering. This means that a majority of these accidents are not caused by factors such as distraction, speeding, or even alcohol.

Many rollover accidents are a result of poor vehicle design or roadway dangers. The only way to determine the cause of a rollover accident and ensure the proper party is held liable is with the help of an experienced auto accident attorney.
