Single Car Accidents
Someone Else May Be To Blame For Your Accident
Just because your car was the only vehicle involved in an accident does not mean that the accident was your fault. Someone else may be to blame. You may be able to take legal action and obtain compensation for your single vehicle accident.
Single car crashes can be complex cases. Few attorneys are even aware of the possibility of taking action on behalf of an injured victim. These cases require the attention of an experienced Georgia auto accident attorney who knows how to carefully review all of the factors surrounding the crash and to determine who was really at fault. A Macon car accident lawyer at the Studstill Firm, LLP has that knowledge.
Car accident victims in Macon, Tifton, Valdosta, Nashville and the surrounding areas of Georgia turn to us because we bring more than 30 years of experience to every car wreck case we handle. They turn to us because we get results.

Examples of Single Car Accidents Caused By Someone Else's Negligence
Our lawyers handle all types of auto accident cases throughout Georgia, whether in Bibb County, Cook County, Thomas County, Lowndes County or anywhere in between. Some of the more common single-car accident cases involve:
Hydroplane accidents: People involved in hydroplane accidents are often victims of negligence and don't know it. If a road is constructed properly, hydroplaning accidents simply should not happen. Water should not build up on a road. Rather, water should drain to the side. If water builds up on a road causing a vehicle to hydroplane, those responsible for constructing and maintaining the unsafe roadway may be held responsible for the motor vehicle accident and personal injuries or wrongful death that result.
Road construction accidents: Construction zones are everywhere on Georgia's interstates like I-75, I-95, and I-85. Contractors are required to set up construction zones in a manner that does not put drivers or road construction workers in danger. Unfortunately, crashes in work zones happen all too often resulting in severe personal injuries and even deaths. Accidents in these areas may have been caused by improper warning signs, improperly diverted traffic, poor placement of cones and barriers or other problems. When collisions occur in a work zone or construction area, negligent construction companies may be held accountable.
Clear zones: A properly maintained road or highway in Georgia must have an area on both sides of the road completely clear of debris, trees, obstacles, shrubbery or other obstructions. These are called clear zones. The purpose for these clear zones is to act as a safety buffer for cars and other vehicles that leave the roadway. The clear zone gives the vehicle space to stop without hitting anything. However, many of Georgia's roads and highways do not have properly maintained clear zones. As a result, many car crashes and accidents end with a violent collision into a tree or other obstruction that should have been removed.
Accidents caused by vehicle defects: Improperly manufactured vehicles or vehicles with defective parts can cause single car accidents. Defective brakes can result in collisions. Defective tires can cause rollovers. Those responsible for manufacturing the defective vehicle can be held accountable in these cases.
