I was in a single car crash. Do I need a lawyer? Who do I sue?

Even in a single car crash you can be a victim of negligence as road authorities can be liable for hazardous road conditions. For example, road authorities, such as cities, counties or the Ministry of Transportation, may be liable for ice and snow covered roads, defects on the road surface before or during road construction and improper road design or sightline obstructions. Other causes of single car crashes can be related to car defects or negligent repairs. In these cases, you would be able to sue your car manufacturer or mechanic if the defect caused your crash.
