Liability In Single Vehicle Accidents
It has been estimated that nearly 94% of accidents involve some amount of human error. But drivers are not always to blame for every accident. A number of people are killed every year in car fires. A car company could potentially face liability for an accident in the event of a fire. For example, based on a report from the NFPA a number of car fires are caused by faulty batteries or heating systems. A wrongful death attorney can examine the specific facts of your case and let you know what your rights are.
