Accidents with just one car often occur due to vehicle defects or malfunctions. Car manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products are safe for consumers to use. Vehicles with essential components that malfunction, such as defective brakes, pose a clear danger to the safety of motorists in the defective vehicle as well as other cars on the road. Sometimes roadways are defective and contribute to auto accidents as well.
