I don't mean to get on my soapbox, but if there's one thing I wish people knew about crash investigations is that single-vehicle crash investigations aren't always up to snuff.

It would surprise people to learn just how many calls our firm gets from victims and families affected by a single-vehicle crash. Despite how common they are, not a lot of people realize that there can be unusual and complex factors surrounding these types of crashes which can easily slip through the cracks without a proper investigation.

Mechanical defects, tire failure, road conditions, lack of signage or lighting, medical emergencies—many factors can come up that drivers simply have no way of avoiding. Obviously, it's more common for a single-vehicle crash to be the result of driver error. But it's not about what is or isn't likely; it's about what the evidence says. A victim's loved ones should be able to move forward confident that investigators gave them all the facts. If investigators instead leave them with unanswered questions, that's just not good enough.
