The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has found that 39 percent of car occupant fatalities in 2018 occurred in single vehicle accidents. When single vehicle accidents occur, there are often some parties that should be held liable. Some of the most common situations where another party might be responsible for a single vehicle crash include where cargo comes loose from trucks, poorly designed or maintained roads, vehicle defects including braking or steering failure, and other drivers who run motorists off the road and then flee the scene before law enforcement can arrive.
