Single-vehicle crashes are responsible for countless injuries each year. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has also found that approximately 53 percent of deadly motor vehicle crashes that occurred in 2018 were single vehicle accidents. While some people think that single vehicle crashes are always the fault of the driver, there are countless ways in which a single vehicle accident can be caused by someone besides the driver. These include accidents involving defective vehicles or defective vehicle parts, improperly maintained or defectively designed roads, and hit and run accidents.
