Most motor vehicle collisions in Kansas City and all across Missouri involve two or more vehicles, but single-vehicle accidents are not an uncommon phenomenon in our state. Although they are not as common as two-vehicle or multiple-vehicle car crashes, single-car accidents can be just as dangerous and deadly.
Since there can be only one vehicle involved in a single-vehicle crash, many drivers who sustain injuries in these collisions assume – often, wrongly – that they are the only party at fault for the accident and, thus, they will have to pay for their medical bills and other damages from their own pocket.
“Wrong,” says our Kansas City single-vehicle accident attorney at Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C. “In reality, you may be able to hold another party responsible for your injuries and damages even if you were the only party involved in a single-vehicle accident.”
I know what you are thinking right now, “Wait, what? How is that even possible?” Well, let us explain. You may be able to (a) seek compensation for a certain percentage of your losses and damages if you were partially at fault, or (b) you may be able to recover 100 percent of your losses and damages if another party was completely at fault, or (c) you may have to pay for your own financial losses and damages if you are the only party to blame for the crash.
Needless to say, you will need to seek legal help from an experienced single-car accident attorney in Kansas City or elsewhere in Missouri after a single-vehicle collision. More likely than not, only a skilled lawyer will be able to help you sue another party in a single-vehicle crash after conducting a thorough investigation to determine liability.
As you can only imagine, your insurance company will refuse to listen to your arguments that other parties may be at fault for the collision no matter how legitimate and reasonable your arguments are. Insurance companies are known for applying their dishonest and unfair tactics when it comes to handling single-car accidents.
Luckily, Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., has plenty of car accident lawyers who can help you protect your legal rights by collecting evidence to prove that another party may have caused or contributed to your single-vehicle crash.
