The weather was clear and the road was dry during the time of the incident.

Would Your Auto-Insurance Cover for Injuries Sustained in a Solo Vehicle Crash?

In 2019, more than one thousand people died in solo vehicle crashes in Texas. Solo vehicle crashes can be difficult to experience, not just when the accident transpired, but when you have to deal with your auto-insurance claim following the event. Many auto insurance providers do not cover for injuries or damages to vehicles if your car accident is classified as single-vehicle crashes. However, if your auto insurance coverage includes personal injury protection (PIP) then you are well within your rights to receive compensation following the incident. If you’re struggling with your auto-insurance claim after a solo vehicle crash, our car accident lawyers may be able to help you with your claim issues.
