A Friday night
accident left one man in serious condition when he was thrown from his vehicle
during an auto accident. The crash occurred in the Southwest Missouri
town of Fairview. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, a 57-year-old
man was traveling along Highway 86 when he lost control of his motorcycle
and it overturned at approximately 9 p.m. The man was airlifted in serious
condition to a hospital in Springfield.
Often, many people assume that single vehicle accidents are caused solo
by the drivers reckless driving or driving errors. That assumption is
incorrect because there are several factors that can lead to a single-vehicle
accident. One cause of single-vehicle accidents is dangerous roadways.
Roadways that are designed to be too narrow, lack sufficient shoulders,
or have a significant drop off could all be examples of dangerous roadways.
Another cause of single-vehicle accidents is vehicle design flaws. SUVs
are more common to have design flaws because their center of gravity is
higher resulting in more rollover accidents. If you have been injured
in a single-vehicle accident where a vehicle design flaw or dangerous
roadway could be a factor, it is important to seek the advice of a reputable
attorney. Also, if you were injured as a passenger in a single-vehicle
accident, even if the driver was at fault, you may be entitled to compensation
for your injuries.
