Many people involved in single-vehicle auto accidents assume that they do not have grounds to file a case. This assumption is false and regardless of the type of accident, one should never dismiss the possibility of a case without first seeking a legal consultation. While driver negligence is a major cause of car accidents, vehicle design flaws and mechanical defects can also contribute to a crash. Victims of auto accidents could be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damages, and mental anguish.
