Six Injured in Grants Pass Rollover Crash

Early Sunday morning six people were injured after a single-vehicle crash on Gunnell Road in Grants Pass.

Breanna White, 22, was driving an Isuzu SUV when she drifted off of the road, then steered back onto the road, and then over-corrected causing the SUV to roll.

The vehicle rolled several times before hitting a tree.

Several of the occupants were thrown from the vehicle and all five of them, and White, were taken to various hospitals with serious injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

Car accidents can be life-changing, and we hope Breanna White and everyone else involved in the crash is 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. Or you can learn more about filing your own claim by reading the book 7 Common Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Oregon Accident Case.
