About Single-Vehicle and Multiple-Vehicle Auto AccidentsOur legal team knows that auto accidents can be tragic, life-changing events. Even non-fatal car accidents can cause major life changes that affect mobility, earning potential, and overall quality of life. It's for that reason that those who have been affected by an auto accident need to reach out to a personal injury attorney. By getting legal assistance as soon as possible, a lawyer can help you receive compensation for injuries and damage to property.

Our legal team would like to take a few moments right now to look at the basics of motor vehicle accident cases. This should help you understand their causes and how serious they should be taken.

About Single-Vehicle Motor Vehicle Accidents

Single-vehicle auto accidents are accidents that involve just a single vehicle. While it would seem that these kinds of auto accidents are caused by driver error alone, in fact, there are many other causes of single-vehicle accidents that may not be the fault of the motorist.

Potential Causes of Single-Vehicle Motor Vehicle Accidents

Some of the common causes of single-vehicle auto accidents include:

  • Driver error
  • Driver fatigue
  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Automobile defects
  • Failure of auto parts
  • Poor weather conditions
  • Poor road conditions
  • Bad signage on the road

It's important to speak with an auto accident attorney about your vehicle accident in cases in which the motor vehicle collision was caused by the negligence of another party.

About Multi-Vehicle Motor Vehicle Accidents

Multi-vehicle auto accidents are collisions that involve more than one vehicle. While these kinds of accidents are not automatically deadlier or more serious than single-vehicle auto accidents, the chance of catastrophic injury and death does often increase when more vehicles are involved. Our team will assist in the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit in the case of fatal collision.

Potential Causes of Single-Vehicle Motor Vehicle Accidents

Some of the most common causes of multi-vehicle auto accidents include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driver error
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver fatigue
  • Auto parts failure/defects
  • Failure to adhere to the rules of the road
  • Failure to yield
  • Malfunctioning traffic signals

During the investigation phase of your accident, we will determine who was at fault and negligent, which will assess responsibility for the accident.
