Our law firm was called by the family of a young girl who was a passenger in a truck that lost control on the Kentucky highways resulting in her tragic death. For passengers, single vehicle accidents can be deadly. This young woman was not wearing her seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle onto the highway and killed instantly. This is also an example of a driver operating the vehicle at a high rate of speed and losing control of the vehicle. The photo below is an actual case handled by our office.
Single vehicle collisions are most often the result of a driver who was negligent in operating his or her vehicle which results in loss of control of that vehicle. A single vehicle accident causes damage to only one vehicle. It can also be caused if someone else pulls in front of your vehicle and you drive off the road and hit an object such as a tree or an animal that may run into the road causing the driver to lose control.

When A Driver is Liable For a Single Vehicle Accident
When the driver of the vehicle causes the crash through their own negligence, such as speeding or distractions such as radio or cell phone, aggressive driving, operating the vehicle too fast for road conditions such as snow or ice are some of the examples when a driver will usually be held responsible for the collision.
When Insurance Will Pay in a Single Vehicle Collision
