Sunday morning a single-vehicle crash left one dead near Coos Bay.
David Conn II, 46, of Coos Bay, was driving a 2002 Nissan Xterra on Oregon 240 when it left the road. The SUV hit a dirt bank on the side of the road, rolled at least once and landed on its side.
Conn was extricated from the vehicle and brought to a Bay Area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we extend our condolences to the family and friends of David Conn II.
While many single-car accidents seem uncomplicated, there are sometimes other factors to consider. If you have been injured in a single- car accident, like the one described here, you may be able to receive compensation in several instances:
- If poor road conditions, poor signage, or bad traffic control contributed to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the city, county, or state. In cases against a public body, you may only have 180 days to file a tort claim notice (in most cases) so act quickly to protect your rights.
- If the car’s mechanic was negligent in his last repairs, contributing to the accident, there may be a lawsuit available against the mechanic or his business.
- If the car’s manufacturer was negligent, you may be able to file a product liability suit against them. Car manufacturers have often been held accountable for design defects and manufacturing defects, and these lawsuits help ensure that future drivers are not hurt by negligent safety standards.
If you have been injured in a single-car accident that you believe may not have been your fault, you can call a Portland car accident lawyer for help with your investigation at 503-222-4411.
