Passenger vans are the “go-to” vehicles of sports teams, church organizations, daycare centers, ride-share groups, and other organized groups. Unfortunately, the convenient size of this sort of vehicle is also its downfall. Many of these vans are known for their high propensity for rollovers, especially when the vehicle is filled to maximum capacity. If you or a loved one have been injured in a passenger van accident, don’t hesitate to consult an experienced Virginia passenger van accident lawyer.

Common Problems in Passenger Vans
A short wheelbase and high center of gravity make these vans particularly susceptible to flipping over during emergency maneuvering or driving. While our attorneys investigate other drivers and circumstances involved in the accident, our Virginia van accident lawyers put a great amount of focus on the van itself. Oftentimes, clients may be able to pursue a claim against the van manufacturer.
Take a look at common problems with passenger vans:
- Pillar failure and collapse
- Weak or defective roof materials
- Poor vehicle design
- Roof collapse
- Seatbelt failure
- Door-latch failure
- Tire failure
- Defective manufacturing
- Passenger ejection
All of these problems can be traced back to the vehicle designer, manufacturer, or both. Our attorneys are familiar with all the laws surrounding accidents of this nature and can aggressively pursue compensation from the appropriate parties.
