Single Vehicle Crashes

Accidents happen and they can involve only one car. However, just because you are the one behind the wheel of the only car in the accident doesn’t automatically make it your fault. There can be other outside reasons that can cause a wreck to happen. For instance, bad road work, a defect in your car can cause you to lose control of your vehicle. After a bad crash, you can lose work for an extended period of time and get behind on your bill. Depending on how long you are incapacitated, you may end up with creditors calling and harassing. This is where having an experienced attorney on your side may help you deal with the aftermath of a bad wreck.
