During the early hours of Sunday, a one-car auto accident resulted in the death of a man in Virginia. The driver was operating his vehicle along Beulah Road in Chesterfield County when he veered off the roadway and collided with a tree at 2:20 a.m. Tragically, emergency responders pronounced the driver dead at the scene of the accident. The Chesterfield County Police are working to determine a cause of the crash.
Many people do not realize that numerous auto accidents are caused by factors other than reckless driving, such as design flaws, dangerous roadways, and mechanical defects. Often when a single-vehicle auto accident occurs the driver assumes they do not have grounds for a car accident case because no other parties are involved. However, there are many other parties involved in the auto accident that could be responsible for the accident. The engineers of the roadway, the automotive company, and mechanical crews could have demonstrated negligence in their jobs that cause a car accident. The most effective way to determine who is liable for your accident and if you have grounds for an auto accident case is to consult a well-seasoned auto accident attorney.
