Three Injured in Single-car Crash in Vancouver
Date: May 1, 2015
Location: MacArthur Boulevard
Early Friday morning, three people were injured in a car crash at the intersection of MacArthur Boulevard and North Devine Road.
One person was ejected from the car and the other two inside were also injured. All three people were taken to a Vancouver hospital.
Police believe excessive speed and alcohol were factors in the crash.
Car accidents can be life-changing, and we hope the three people are able to fully recover soon.
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.
