Why You Need a Lawyer
While any car accident is frustrating to deal with, single vehicle accidents are particularly difficult, as they bring up questions of liability and damages. Some examples of single vehicle accidents include:
- Collision with a stationary object (guard rail, sign, tree)
- Collision with an animal
- Collision with an out-of-gear vehicle (parked car)
According to data from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), there were 574 single vehicle crashes in Ohio in the year 2019.

Causes of Single-Vehicle Accidents
Determining liability in single vehicle accident cases is an important step in the legal process. A variety of factors may cause single vehicle accidents, such as:
- Road rage
- Distracted driving
- Poor visibility due to weather
- Poor road conditions
Our attorneys are prepared to review your case and determine who may be liable for your crash.
You have a specific timeframe to file a lawsuit in an injury case. The timeframe is set forth in the state’s statute of limitations. In Ohio, victims of single-vehicle accidents have two years from the date of the collision to file a lawsuit. This is one reason it’s so important to get an attorney working on your case right away. If the deadline passes and you try to file your lawsuit afterward, the court will likely dismiss your case. You could lose your right to pursue compensation in the court system altogether.
The insurance company would like to make sure you don’t file that lawsuit about your injury. They’ll draw out the investigation and negotiations as long as they can. Don’t let them take advantage of you. Call Lawrence & Associates right away and let them manage the deadlines.
What Compensation May Be Available After My Crash?
Compensation can take several forms and is generally divided into two categories. Economic damages refer to the specific costs a victim incurs as a result of an accident. These may be medical costs, property damage, and past/future lost wages. Non-economic damages are general “pain and suffering” costs. The value of your non-economic damages will depend upon several factors, including:
- Permanent physical damage or disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Anxiety, post-traumatic stress
- Inability to engage in the same activities as before the accident
The lawyers of Lawrence & Associates are skilled in evaluating all the factors of your case and determining an appropriate value that will cover your past and future medical and other losses.
In dealing with single vehicle accidents, it can be difficult to determine the best way to build your case. Our hardworking team of attorneys at Lawrence & Associates is ready and willing to provide you with the legal aid you need as you seek the restitution you deserve. Should you still have questions regarding your single vehicle accident case, there are a few frequently asked questions included below:
How do I know I’ve been involved in a single vehicle accident?
Single vehicle accidents are car crashes or collisions that involve only one in-gear vehicle. Common instances include collisions with guardrails, signs, or curbs, though single rollovers, animal collisions, or collisions with parked cars are also included within this category. If you are unsure as to whether you’ve been involved in a single vehicle accident, call our office today at (513) 351-5997 to receive a free consultation regarding your circumstance.
What if I’m at fault for my single vehicle accident?
Even if you are partially at fault for your accident, Ohio law states that you may still make a claim for the damages you suffered as a result of your accident with the liable party’s insurance company. Any negligence on your part will ultimately be subtracted from your settlement. However, if you were 51% or more at fault, you may be barred from obtaining any compensation at all. In order to determine your level of liability, consult one of our attorneys, who can best provide you with legal insight regarding your case.
What should I do if I’ve been involved in a single vehicle accident?
If you’ve been in a single vehicle accident, after making sure that everyone involved requires no urgent medical attention, take photos of the scene, including your car, the stationary object, animal, or parked vehicle with which you collided, and any injuries you’ve sustained. In order to keep your case as confidential as possible and to avoid any unintentional admission of guilt, limit your discussion with other parties at the scene. Don’t sign any forms until you’ve reviewed your situation with a lawyer. Call (513) 351-5997 today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your circumstances.
How much will it cost to hire an attorney with Lawrence & Associates?
