Posted on behalf of Goldberg Finnegan, LLC on Oct 22, 2009 in Car Accidents
The Washington Post reported that most fatal car accidents are single car accidents. Statistics in the article include that of the 7,945 people who died in the past 5 years in Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia 58.9% were in single car crashes. The statistic came from AAA. The factors contributing to the deadly car accidents included speed, driving at night, driving under the influence. Several single vehicle wrongful death accidents that occurred include that on 2/1/09 a 17 year old passenger died after being ejected from a motor vehicle in Montgomery County, Maryland on Veirs Mill Road near Robindale Drive in Rockville, in April 2009 a 22 year old Virginia, Leesburg lady was killed when her vehicle struck a tree in Chantilly, VA. Even when there is a single car accident, out lawyers thoroughly investigate potential negligence claims. Quite often, single car accidents are caused by phantom vehicles (unidentified vehicles). When this is the case, those injured or killed in a single car accident can make a claim for uninsured motorist benefits.
