The Dangers of 15-Passenger Vans
Research done by the government and automobile manufacturers indicates that there is a significant risk of rollovers in 15-passenger vans when they are fully loaded. Single vehicle rollover accidents involving 15-passenger vans continue to threaten the safety of school children, tour groups, sports teams, church groups, people being transported to airports, and many other unknowing and innocent victims. The experienced Philadelphia rollover accident lawyers at The Beasley Firm have known for many years that 15-passenger vans continue to be some of the most unsafe vehicles on the road. They are plagued with a multitude of design defects that manufacturers simply ignore.
More than that, these accidents can be caused by negligent driving such as:
- Drunk driving
- Driver impairment due to medications or illegal drug usage
- Cell phone use or texting
- Failure to adjust to the weather / driving conditions
- Careless or reckless driving
- Eating or drinking while driving
Overall, driving a 15-passenger van can be different than a typical car or motor vehicle, requiring even more attention and concentration from the driver. Even the slightest distraction could result in a deadly rollover or collision.
Our experienced passenger van accident attorneys have fearlessly and successfully taken on the manufacturers of these products achieving some of the highest recoveries in the United States. Our Philadelphia car accident lawyers have intimately shared the pain and loss of all too many parents, athletes, and children, who were unaware of these defects and dangers until an unfortunate accident happened.
Fighting the Van Rollover Epidemic
If you have been a victim of a tragic 15-passenger van accidents, contact one of the experienced team at The Beasley Firm to fully investigate the crash and pursue proper compensation. The 15-passenger van is extraordinarily easy to rollover when fully loaded because they have a high center of gravity and other design defects that create unsafe conditions, uneven weight distribution, and instability in a tire blowout or accident avoidance maneuver. Those catastrophically injured and family members of those wrongfully killed have a legal right to hold the manufacturer or driver responsible for physical and financial injuries.
Leverage, Knowledge & Experience Working in Your Favor
The experienced team at the Beasley Firm has internal corporate documents in their possession clearly indicating that the manufacturers of these vans knew of the defects, yet continued to sell defective vehicles due to extremely high profit margins. This choice to keep dangerous vans on the road was made despite a minimal expenditure to fix the defect. Because these vehicles carry a large number of people and the drivers are not required to have a special commercial driver's license, they can leave passengers exposed to inexperienced drivers and dangerous situations.
