Sometimes single-vehicle collisions are the driver’s fault. This is common in speeding accidents, DUI crashes, and distracted driving accidents. However, there are many other potential causes outside of the driver’s control.
Some common causes include:
You may not be entirely sure what caused the single-vehicle crash. An Austin car accident lawyer can help you figure out who is responsible and make a plan to hold them liable.
Like other types of car accidents, single-vehicle crashes can cause serious injuries. Depending on the severity, it may take you weeks, months, or years to recover. Some people will never fully recover.
Common injuries from single-vehicle accidents include:
Unfortunately, the driver who crashes is usually blamed for a single-vehicle accident. This is because it’s easier to blame the person driving than to look for other causes. If you didn’t cause the crash, this can be incredibly frustrating.
The truth is that other parties may be responsible for the single-vehicle crash, such as:
It is also possible that multiple people or factors may have contributed to the crash, or you might bear partial responsibility.
Under Texas modified comparative negligence law, you can still recover money for your damages as long as you are 50% or less responsible for causing the accident. However, your damages are reduced by your share of the responsibility. If you are more than 50% at fault, you cannot receive any compensation.
Our team carefully considers all of the possible causes of a crash before drawing any conclusions. Even if you share some of the blame, we’ll work to minimize it so that you can still get compensated.
We must have an understanding of the value of your damages before negotiations. It isn’t always straightforward, though.
In Austin, you can recover economic damages and non-economic damages after a single-vehicle accident. Economic damages are monetary losses directly caused by a crash or the resulting injury.
Examples of economic damages include:
Non-economic damages are emotional or psychological losses that happen after a crash. These aren’t tied to a dollar figure, and the value is often difficult to determine.
We often pursue the following types of non-economic damages:
When we first discuss your case, we will ask how the crash has impacted you. It is important to include both financial and non-financial effects so that we can get the whole picture of your losses. Then our team can assign values based on our experience.
