Will Auto-Insurance Compensate You If You Were Injured in a Single-Vehicle Crash?
Whether or not your auto-insurance will approve a claim you file after a single-vehicle crash depends on whether your insurance coverage includes personal injury protection coverage. Unfortunately, in California, this is not mandatory coverage for an auto insurance holder. Thus, it is best to take a look at your auto insurance policy for answers. A bit of advice from an attorney would also prove helpful if the fault in your single-vehicle crash is not 100% attributable to you.
