Single-vehicle accidents can result from interactions with other vehicles, so this factor will not be ignored by investigators. These incidents can also be caused by vehicle failures/defects which can be considered a form of negligence. These things said, people who are injured in road accidents are advised to seek legal guidance as this will help them determine if filing for damages can be a good course of action.
