Advice for Injury Victims of Single Vehicle Rollover Accidents
When a single vehicle rollover happens in “black ice” conditions, the insurer often argues the “inevitable accident” defence. This means that the driver of the automobile could not have avoided the collision or rollover due to the “black ice” conditions on the highway. The defence is an absolute defence and means that, if successfully argued, the injured person is not entitled to any compensation because the driver was not negligent. This defence is difficult to maintain.
Each case is fact specific and litigation will be required to discover all of the facts the driver was aware of before and during travel.
Joseph A. Nagy has handled many of these cases and can assist you in fighting the insurer arguing this defence to ensure you are fairly compensated.
