Florida 15 Passenger Van Rollover Attorneys

Get Help After a Passenger Van Accident

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 15-passenger van is a hazard on wheels. Its flawed body design and unreasonable capacity limitations make it prone to devastating rollovers. In spite of this, auto manufacturers keep releasing these potential death traps to the public due to the high profit margin. Such negligence should not go unpunished, especially when it results in injury or death.

If you have suffered considerable losses in a 15-passenger van accident, please contact the Jacksonville personal injury lawyers at Farah & Farah to discuss your case. You may be entitled to compensation from the liable manufacturer for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Our firm has more than 35 years of experience in personal injury law and the case results to show for it. Depending on the extent of your damages, we may be able to obtain thousands, even millions of dollars in recovery on your behalf. Call us today at (904) 263-4610 to learn more about what our firm can do for you in a free case evaluation.

What Makes 15-Passenger Vans Dangerous?

One of the main issues with these types of vans is defective design. The 15-passenger van has a high center of gravity. That center shifts even higher and rearward as more cargo and occupants board the van. The rearward shift gives the van a propensity to “fishtail” and the upward shift increases its likelihood of overturning. This combination of forces compounds the risk of rollover in emergency driving situations.

Defective design isn’t the only thing that can contribute to van rollovers. A 2005 study showed that 74 percent of these vans had problems with tire inflation that could significantly increase the risk of a rollover accident. In fact, the higher the occupancy of the van, the higher the risk – the rollover rate of vans with ten or more passengers was almost three times as high as the risk for the same van loaded with a smaller number of passengers. The fact that many people do not wear seatbelts in these vans increases the risk even more.

How Can I Hold the Manufacturer Liable?

In your case, the liable manufacturer may, and most likely will, blame the driver instead of taking responsibility for their own defective design. Our car accident attorneys can help you counteract their claims by:

  • Consulting with accident reconstruction experts to establish the cause of the crash;
  • Examining corporate documents that show that the manufacturers were aware of the van’s defects; and
  • Presenting a strong legal argument supported by evidence to achieve a successful case outcome.
